I know it’s been a couple of weeks since I posted regularly. There was no Satur-deja Vu last week. It’s been wackadoodle here at the Bunch compound but there is no time like the present to get back on the blog wagon. Here’s are some news headlines and random bits that you may have seen, may have missed, and maybe a little something to make your weekend better.
Cowboy lassos bike thief was recently reported by the BL, and consequently shared on Facebook, but it turned out to be a story from 2016. Here’s a 3 minute video from the CBS Evening News with an interview for those interested.
The Clark Bar will return to store shelves in 2020. Lots of candy treats – NECCO wafers, Clark Bar, Conversation Hearts, Squirrel Nut Zippers – disappeared in 2018 when NECCO went bankrupt and suddenly shuttered their factory. Boyer, maker of Mallow Cup, has acquired the rights to the Clark Bar name and says you should be able to find them again after the first of the year. Click for more.
“It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” was first broadcast in 1966. We watched it on ABC one night this week and it will be on again Sunday evening if you missed it or just can’t get enough. Before Chuckie, Michael Myers and Jason there was Snoopy the WWI flying ace vs. his arch nemesis The Red Baron.
Candy Corn – One of the main ingredients is corn syrup. In other words, candy corn is actually made out of corn. That’s truth in advertising right there. You can buy Peanut Butter Cups any time of the year. Candy Corn is one of the only good things about fall. You can’t have the month of October or celebrate Halloween without it. Haters gonna’ hate; bring it in the comments.
Nora is a hotdog. That video was earmarked for Happy Monday and accidentally left out. If that doesn’t make you smile you need to have your face muscles checked.
It looks like we’ll be blessed with a little more rain. We been catching up on rainfall in the deep South and more is on the way thanks to Tropical Storm Olga. While California is battling high winds and wildfire, Gulf Shore states, the South and later the eastern seaboard will be getting more rain and face potential flooding over the weekend. Our family will be staying inside today and having grilled cheese samiches with tomato soup. Campbell’s, mmm mmm good.
Optical Illusion of the day:
Tomorrow at Unity we will wrap up the 2nd Peter sermon series. I will have four Sundays in November to plan for before the Advent season starts.
Coming up is that controversial holiday that some Christians either celebrate, are confused about, or ignore completely. That’s right, Reformation Day is October 31st.
Peace and God bless.
