Why are bad foods always given at the Holiday season? Who wants a popcorn tin, H&D fruit basket, various booze filled chocolates, fruit cake...

I have a love/hate relationship with the popcorn tin as the popcorn is usually stale but the quite bit of caramel corn is sometimes satisfying. The H&D pears have been going down hill for a few years. While I drink, I am not a fan of booze filled chocolates. As for fruitcake, I bet Ed is a lover and has his own recipe...
There's a local shop here that makes like 300 billion different kinds of flavored popcorn, right there in the shop. This year we decided to give small bags of it to friends and clients and colleagues for the holidays. I'm not sure, but I'm pretty confident that the popcorn has almost as many calories as straight sugar of the same weight, so the "popcorn" part is more of a formality than anything else.

Nothing wrong with the popcorn and fruit basket.

Funny how all these pieces on offense became competent when a competent QB showed up.
Yeah Mac Jones really improved the play of guys from last year like Rhamondre Stevenson, Kendrick Bourne, Nelson Agholor....

On the pet woes, our older rabbit has started peeing on the cage floor and not the litter box. Luckily there are no UTI or kidney issues. Problem with that is her butt gets wet when she does it, and she developed a thing called urine scald. Vet had to shave most of her undercarriage and tail, and we have puppy pads down on the cage floor to try to keep her dry.

We have to give her meds and put ointment on every day. She does not like that. I have her over my lap; wife does the ointment. She poops every minute or so the whole time we do it. They roll down my thigh like a gumball machine. It's amusing. She's also let loose on us a few times. That's less amusing. (I think she's auditioning to be the next lead singer of Brass Against. Unfortunately all she can do is grunt and thump. That might be enough, though.)

Our yard is filled with piles of bunny poop which is irresistible to our dog so she scarfs it down like kibble. Of course it makes her sick for a day or so but she does it anyway. It’s like a drug. Our old dog did the same thing.
