Some 400 students in an elementary school in Saginaw, MI, were evacuated from their building just before the start of classes because of a burning smell in the school.
The source of the burning smell: burned
The evacuation lasted about 20 minutes while
firemen found the source of the smell and then cleared the building, making
sure it was safe for the students to enter the building again.
The burned popcorn was found in a microwave
in the school.
My guess is that a teacher left the popcorn
in the microwave too long, and left the teachers’ lounge while the popcorn was
still popping. Oooops.

A new popcorn shop will open in February,
2018, in Normal, IL. A chocolate, fudge, and popcorn shop is opening where The
Garlic Press Market Café used to be. The owners of The Garlic Press will be
opening the new popcorn shop.
The new popcorn shop doesn’t have a name, yet,
but will have by the time it opens.
The kitchen will be redesigned to make 50
flavors of popcorn. These flavors will include savory and spicy flavors plus
the traditional caramel, and butter and cheese.
The new popcorn shop will also sell coffee,
coffee beans, and specialty sodas, and provide free WiFi. Seating, though
limited, will be both indoors and outdoors.
The owners, Sarah McManus, Dorothy Bushnell,
and Pam Locsin, want the new store to be community-oriented.
The popcorn and fudge will be made on-site.
The employees will be trained by professional popcorn and fudge makers before
the store opens.
I love the idea of a popcorn shop being
community-oriented. I wonder what it takes to become professional popcorn
