Due to the Flu, no Donuts for you

Dear Members and Constituents,
On the threshold of the twenty-teens, my thoughts turn to  the old year. A year where the media showed us some of the best, worst and odd in mankind. Human curiosity landed an aptly named rover on Mars’ surface while folks in the UK celebrated the Olympics and their queen’s diamond anniversary. Human depravity brought incomprehensible tales of gore from Syria to poor Jessica Ridgeway; from Newtown to Aurora. Meanwhile “superstorm” Sandy, proved nature is still capable of inspiring awe.  The world didn’t end despite gangam style reaching a billion views and all the maddening election ads. And so it is that we look forward to a Super Bowl ring in 2013 (how about them Broncos?). Unfortunately, this morning we cannot look forward to pastry rings. Zach Przybeck is sick today and wishes me to relay his most sincere apologies. Nonetheless, I wish you and yours a happy new year, filled with adventure and donuts.
Happy Friday!

Happy New Baktun!

Dear Members and Constituents,
The day is here, the time has come
so have no fear, this could be fun!
As Mayans turn their big round stone
the old Baktun has come and gone.
With weather brisk -at thirty four,
burned to a crisp? Don't be a bore!
And so it is that we move on
On with our biz, and on and on
We'll take our leave –and most with pay!—
from Christmas Eve to New Year's Day
Enjoy the time we still have left
with friends so fine, perhaps some gifts
but wait, not yet, just hold your horse
we can’t forget one thing, of course
It’s donut day and Laura Heinsohn
has done just great, so come and have some!


Happy Friday!

12 + 12 + 12 = 36 Donuts

Dear Members and Constituents, This last week saw a unique event.  December 12 was probably the last time in our life we will see a date that is the same across the day, month and year (next Stop January 1, 2101).  Or, if you believe the Mayans, it definitely is the last time since the world is ending on 12/21.  I wonder if they meant to stop on 12/12 and just got the day reversed?
Is it a coincidence that this week had a once in a life time date 12/12/12 and we have 3 dozen donuts? Could this be what the Mayan were going for when they ended their calendar?
I don’t know the answer to that, but, I do know JP is out today and the donuts are in!  Stop by and pick one up thanks to our Donut Boy, Mon Miah, who has delivered 3 dozen LaMar’s donuts.

Priority Donuts

Dear Members and Constituents, What's your passion? In this world of “blink and you missed it”, time seems to be the scarcest of resources. Important tasks go undone and dreams unfulfilled. If mortgage payments were no more and food was guaranteed, what would you do? I’m not talking about a scenario where the Maya were right and you’ve got two weeks to cram it all in. I’m just saying, absent the practical realities of life, would you change anything? Would you continue to perform the exact same tasks in the exact same way? Would you spend fifty hours at the office or would you travel the world with your family and volunteer more with your friends? Would you have the same job and hobbies or would you spend more time sitting on an oak rocking chair, under the shade of an oak tree, watching the squirrels eat oak acorns? Which reminds me, Mike Robles (this morning's donut boy –whose last name is the Spanish word for “oaks”) has delivered four dozen Winchell’s donuts. While his do…
