Popcorn time

It is that time of year - Boy Scout popcorn time. This year I offered to be the "Popcorn Kernal", partially because I like running fundraisers and because I believe we can do so much better than we have in the past. Our poor scouts have been dying to go on a high-adventure or out-of-state summer camp or both but the troop has not had the funds because we just don't do that well with fundraisers. No one has been willing to shake-up the standard way of doing things. This year will (hopefully) be different.

Oh, in case you want to support a scout (Trails-End has a nice military donation program), J would always appreciate your business. http://www.trails-end.com/estore/home_alt.jsp?_requestid=868420

I'm glad you and J are excited about this. Our boys (and me) always hung our head this time around, because we couldn't sell anything!

We focus on the big prize - the college scholarship. It is certainly motivates J. Plus this year, our district is awarding a 26" flat screen TV to the top seller, which could be J since our district is not know for big sales. :)
