I grew up on Jiffy Pop on the stovetop, shaking it away, pulling open the foil and the great smell through the house, it was so much fun back then in the 70's. Then my brother Luke, became the guru so to speak on making popcorn on the stove with grandma's old saucepan and boy was it ever the best to eat, fresh popped, butter salt, buttery flavored oil, with age it became the best seasoned pan in the world to make popcorn in. Then somehow we got into the microwave age and the fast and furious was born.
While going out to shop, I noticed Orvilles jar corn to be quite a bit more expensive today than Jolly Time in the resealable bag. Orvilles was 4.99 for a one pound nice jar. Jolly Time was 4.49 and for a two pound bag, so who cares about the jar with that much more popcorn and a real money saver?
So, guess what, being the thrifty shopper and lover of my good ole faithful, Jolly Time came home with me. Now I can use my great new masons jars to put that popcorn in with double the popcorn

Coconut Grove, Whining and Great Dining Review and Coconut Custard Tarts
The photo above is my brother John Colenzo and I at the Village Of Merrick Park in Coconut Grove, Florida. John suggested this would be a treat to see all the fine cars and retailers here. John, besides being my brother, is a music entertainer in Fisher Island (not too far from here) and has some great friends in the area who you'll meet further down the article posted below.
Merrick Park has several Retailers here to see, to include and name a few are anchors Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom's. Quite some interesting finds here. If you are lucky enough to own a Lexus (my favorite car) it's free valet parking. The rest of the vehicles would have a fee. Some very impressive vehicles we saw were the Bentley, Ferrari and the least expensive, a Corvette (still very respectable)! A car buff and lovers dream place to visit here!

That photo was the beginning of a great relationship that lasted 38 years of my life. Dad, best friend, great listener, supporter and one who loved his family unconditionally... that was my Dad, Carmen Louis Colenzo. For me one of the greatest men on the planet. What made him so special? His unconditional love, patience, and he never judged anyone. He was there in anyone time of need and always there to help, ever strangers. At age 82, August 12th 1995, the angels came and took him from us. His spirit lives on in each of us children left behind, we all lost a great man that day in our family. Amazing how he never complained, his kindness and generosity was stellar. He lived life with a smile, loved his wife, Read More »from Father's Day Remembrance and Dad Favorite Foods
