Fun Fact Friday


Happy Friday! What are your plans for the weekend?  I’m hoping to watch The Help and hunker down for the hurricane.

Today is National Cherry Popsicle Day!  Do you have cherry Popsicles in your freezer to celebrate?


“Popsicle” is actually a trademarked name, like “Walkman” or “Band-Aid.” The generic term is ice pop.  So I guess I should say today is National Cherry Ice Pop day 😉

    Yum! Love popsicles (ice pops). Stay safe during the hurricane. My boss canceled his business trip to New York because he didn’t want to get caught in that mess. I really want to see The Help, too!

    Luckily, we are stocked in popsicles for Irene. Of course, if the power goes, we’ll just have to eat them all Really Fast. A woman’s got to do what a woman’s got to do.

    Stay safe and dry this weekend! We’re hunkered down here in the DC area, but think it’s going to be pretty mild when all is said and done. I hope that’s the case in NYC, too!
