Me and my pal Fozzie started Shopping Around the World in April. We asked for all of you to post prices on certain items in your part of town. We are going to do it again this month on Wednesday, June 25, 2014.
Do a posting on your blog linked back to mine. That way we can keep track of all of the different prices.
It should be interesting to see the differences between different countries all over. Mark your calendar so you can do a posting with us.
These are the suggestions of our friends Reilly and Denny. – thanks guys! Show your prices for the following:
- Price of cable services for one month – what do you get for that price?
- A 12 ounce box (360 grams) of Cornflakes
- A 15 ounce package (432 grams) of Oreos or other cream filled cookies.
- A 7 ounce bag (225 grams) of Lay’s potato chips.
- 1 pound of real butter.
- A 6 ounce can of peanuts.
Come join the fun of Shopping Around the World – mark your calendars Wednesday, June 25, 2014!
If you have suggestions for the July issue, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org

What a wonderful day. Not only is it Friday but it’s also National Donut Day! Who could ask for anything more? It doesn’t matter what kind you like – partake in a doughnut today. There’s many places even offering a free doughnut just for this one day – National Donut Day. In our area, Krispy Kreme is offering a free one. So for today, splurge and eat one to celebrate. But the main question is – can you just eat one?
History of National Donut Day – did you know that this day was created by the Salvation Army in 1938? It was created as a fundraiser to help the needy during the Great Depression and to honor the women who served doughnuts to military members during World War I. About 250 Salvation Army volunteers provided assistance to America troops in France during the war. And the kicker – Salvation Army
s’ Ensign Margaret Sheldon and Adjutant Helen Purviance cleverly thought of frying the doughnuts in the troops’ helmets. How creative!
Whatever flavor you decide to pick – enjoy this holiday. I’m sure that little chompers we call Bacon will enjoy a couple. Heck, I might even too if the Hotel Thompson throws me out a couple – hint hint.
Happy National Doughnut Day!
