    Mmmmmm. I can hardly wait for the 19th. I LOVE popcorn and having 2 special days 19 & 31st) in 1 month, is just fab. In fact I might not wait at all, LOL

    What a great idea. However, I think Run it Up the Flagpole and See if Anyone Salutes Day should be throughout the year as well. Why limit it to one day when we can make small changes and have great ideas all the time?
