I agree! Reminds me of the first time I made popcorn on the stove on my own (as a kid, back in the day before popcorn poppers and microwaves). I followed the package, it said use a "saucepan". I knew mom made spaghetti sauce in the cast iron fry pan, she'd brown the hamburger, then add everything else to simmer to make the best sauce. It seemed odd to use a pan, it wasn't very tall, but was wide, and I used it. While waiting for the popcorn to pop the oil caught on fire! With a WHOOSH, tall flames reached almost to the cabinets. I screamed, shut off the burner and clapped the lid back on to put out the fire. Lesson learned: don't use a pan, use a pot!

No damage, thank goodness. Now I am remembering other Learning to Cook scenarios by other members of my family. Salt mixed up with sugar. Spilling vanilla extract on the hot stove burner. Oh, there are so many opportunities for learning from mistakes! Have fun!

My parents and my sister took my nephew up to Akron this past weekend for a Polar Express train ride experience.

 

My dad said that part of town was done up in Christmas decorations and they pointed out a Winking Lizard and said that was Santa's favorite restaurant. As he told about it, Dad, said, "You know, it said like beer and liquor on the sign and all that. I just let that go. Then, when Santa came, we were in the back and James was the first kid Santa saw, and he gave him the bell like in the movie. You should have seen (James') face. I thought he was gonna pee himself."

    • Girls Will Act Like THIS When They Develop Feelings For You (Early Signs Of Affection & Attraction)
      Is she developing feelings for me? In today's video we're going to be discussing those very early initial signs she is developing feelings for you. Just as a girl starts to fall for you her actions and behaviours will begin to change when she's around you. From the types of texts she sends you to the way she is in your company.

      There is no better feelings in the world than that of falling in love with someone. Finding someone that you can share your life with is the best and it's something that everyone is searching for. Women are known for wearing their hearts on their sleeves, and when they fall for someone they fall deeply for them. And often experience the feeling of love before the other person does. So they normally try to keep this to themselves though because they don't like feeling vulnerable. And they want to make sure that you feel the same before they say anything.

      So because of this it can make it difficult for the men because it's hard to tell if they are developing feelings for you or not. It often means that men have to take that initial risk and announce their feelings before a lady does. So today's video I'm going to tell you what girls do when they start to develop feeling for you. Now this is going to help you understand when a lady likes you or if she doesn't. And it should help you be more confident when it comes to making that first move.
