Numbers just released show that Honeynut Cheerios was the best selling breakfast cereal in 2013. The same survey states that Honeynut Cheerios are the least liked. I happen to like them, and have them for breakfast several times a week. How could they biggest selling and least liked at the same time? BUT, my guilty pleasure is Cap'n Crunch with Crunchberries . Never eat them for breakfast, though. Only as a snack every once in a while.
Here's the rest of the list-
The top 10 best selling cereals in the U.S. are:
1) Honey Nut Cheerios
2) Frosted Flakes
3) Honey Bunches of Oats
5) Cinnamon Toast Crunch
6) Special K
7) Frosted Mini Wheats
8) Lucky Charms
9) Froot Loops
10) Raisin Bran.
They're delivered by Griffin, our neighbor who happens to be a 7th grader. Griffin, along with his family, raises hens in their backyard, and they seem to be pretty prolific. We're more than happy to buy eggs from his company "Griffin's Girls" on a regular basis. Doesn't get any better! Now, if they could only send some bacon over.......
....yellow jackets. And we've been hit hard on our neighborhood. I hear it's the same way just about everywhere else in the Bay Area. This is how our trap looked around 9a, after I set it the night before. There's no love lost between yellow jackets and me. When our youngest son was about 7, he and his friend accidentally stepped on a subterranean nest in our backyard. They were instantly swarmed. Thank goodness our neighbor was close by, and was able to hose the boys down. When we got our son up to the house, I stopped counting the stings at 20. Good thing he's not allergic.
Though not a real fan of disaster flix, I thought Towering Inferno was a pretty good one. Great cast, and much of it shot on San Francisco. The B of A building on California was used for the exterior shots.
Did you know that Roy Scheider, as Chief Brody, ad libbed that line on the Jaws set? Director Steven Spielberg LOVED it, and kept it in the final cut of the film. This month marks the 40th anniversary of the publication of Peter Benchley's novel. A year later Spielberg's film hit theaters, and chased everyone off the beaches. I've probably seen the movie ten times.
