Jelly Donuts - and a DVD winner

Did you know that there's been a run on jelly donuts this week?
That makes three of my coworkers very, very happy.

Have you met them? 







Bev, the voice of Piddles (the little blue character) is a wonderful person and a huge pet lover. She and I collaborated a few years ago to rescue a feral cat on the 7th floor of a building in the heart of Kansas City.

Gracie ended up becoming the newest member of Bev's family!

(oh yeah, and Bob & Mike - the creators & voices of hoops&yoyo) - they're pretty cool too.

So why, you ask, do I mention donuts today? And what's with the run on jelly donuts this week anyway?

Eating jelly donuts and other fried foods is a holiday tradition during Chanukah. To find out why, hop on over and read Tuesday's posts in the Chanukah Blog Crawl here and here.

Then check out the two awesome stops we have for you today and learn about cool stuff like how communities celebrate Chanukah!
Stop by and say hello at @GizmoGeoDog's blog, Terrier Torrent and then swing by and hang with Chazz the dog and his mom.

  15. What's not to love about a holiday where you can consume fried things with sugar on them??? It reminds us of Herb Caen, an incomparable columnist for the SF Chronicle, who said Irish coffee is an example of perfect nutrition since it contains all of the four major food groups: sugar, fat, caffeine and alcohol. And really, who can argue with that?
