POP Goes the..... Cake?

We have had some unusual Birthday Cakes in the Timm household, the most unusual being Tina's request for a "Litter-box Birthday Cake" (yes it looks just like a soiled litter-box and is served with a litter-box poop scoop).

A new creation was served up just a few days ago. A popcorn cake!

Carol's Cake

It was much like Carol and the cake

the popcorn balls of old that I always hoped I get while out Trick or Treating so 50 years ago (except) this was moist and didn't crumble into a million pieces when you bit into it.

There were M&M's mixed in as well as some peanuts.

It was GREAT and didn't last long as we are a popcorn loving family.

Tina was home for the Christmas holiday being on leave from military vocational training as well to enjoy both the holiday and mom's birthday (Tina is the biggest popcorn lover of them all).

Time to Shovel
It's after Thanksgiving, now it's okay to snow. Snowfalls before Thanksgiving are just plain RUDE! That being said we have had several already this Fall and Halloween usually carries about a 50/50 chance of snow in any year in North Dakota. Those… more
About your old cell phone… Did You Know?
My old Galaxy S3 was no longer holding a charge long enough to be useful to me anymore. Those of you who know me know that I can't seem to throw anything away that I can re-purpose and I figured there has to be a use for a phone that they say is… more

Father Time
The main reason I joined Toastmasters International was so I could better speak to an audience while discussing an emotional subject. Most of the time I speak it's on an emotional subject and I have a hard time doing it without getting all choked up… more
Decorating Lite
I love decorating for Christmas and in the past my office had enough decorations to fill a small U-Haul trailer. Today my office is about the size of a large U-Haul trailer… that creates a problem. I'm not sure what I'll end up doing but the plan… more
