Booker Christmas Mannequin Challenge

So….for this Christmas…the Booker Family decided to jump on the bandwagon and do their own version of the Mannequin Challenge.  Now…we aren’t talking about trying to be like Andrew McCarthy and bring a Mannequin to life to “get lucky with.”  Nope this one is the viral internet trend where people remain frozen in action like mannequins while a moving camera films them.

The logistics of doing this with only 5 people and getting us all in was a little hard to do…but I think we pulled it off WONDERFULLY!  Hope you enjoy it!

Check it out:  Booker Christmas Mannequin Challenge

Here is a quick excerpt from the video featuring Scott and his Mom!

Here is a link to the original video on You-Tube:

Why Do Donuts Have Holes – By Scott

Donuts_(1)

 

So….for some odd reason….this morning I woke up wondering why Donuts have holes in them.

It could be because the majority of my dreams include donuts (don’t judge me) or it could be that I passed a neat little donut shop on my way to work yesterday that I just noticed for the first time ever.

No matter what the reason (going with the dream theory), I decided to Google it this morning and this is the answer I found:

The doughnut didn’t always have a hole! These round, flat, fried cakes were once filled, with soggy centers. At least, that’s the way they were eaten when early Dutch settlers brought them to Colonial America. 


Then in 1847, a 15-year-old boy, Hanson Crockett Gregory, was in the kitchen of his Rockport, Maine, home watching his mother make these fried cakes. When he asked her why the centers were so soggy and uncooked that they gave him indigestion, she didn’t have the answer for him.


So Hanson took some of the uncooked cakes and poked out the centers with a fork. This time when his mother fried them, they were delicious, for the hole let the dough cook more thoroughly, making the cakes much easier to digest.


Today, doughnut makers put their dough into special machines that punch out the centers. The dough is then cooked in a vat of boiling oil until it is a puffy, crisp doughnut.


And the house in Rockport, Maine, where Hanson Crockett Gregory was born, bears a plaque commemorating the day that a boy invented a hole!


So they can be plucked from the hot oil with a rod. Another reason is that the heat can be distributed evenly.”

Now…this sounds very logical….but I do think that I will go with one of my own theories that I once developed after a very satisfying dream.

If you are walking around naked….you can carry two cups of coffee….and a few donuts….all at the same time.   (Ok…maybe just one donut.  Like I said though….don ‘t judge me).
