Best Cheat Day Donuts

Siblings Douglas and Stephanie Hem are rewriting the recipe for success at the south Sacramento doughnut business started by their mother in 1985. At Baker’s Donuts on Florin Road, there are all kinds of inventive flavors and styles, including croissant doughnuts, the top-selling maple-bacon doughnut and a new creation made with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Those who want to splurge can plunk down $3.50 for a doughnut sandwiched around ice cream. The siblings post dozens of eye-catching photos of their products on Instagram, where they have 9,500 followers and counting. Their social media brings in customers from as far as the Bay Area who often post online photos of their own. The Hems have even figured out a way to attract hard-core fitness enthusiasts, once seen as the arch enemy of deep-fried sweets. Turns out, bodybuilders love to post pictures of their so-called “cheat day” meals, and Douglas encourages them to do. More

Sacramento Swan Lake

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Ballets by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky Swan Lake (1876) Sleeping Beauty (1889) The Nutcracker (1892) Swan Lake (Russian: Лебединое озеро/Lebedinoye ozero), Op. 20, is a ballet composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in 1875–76. Despite its initial failure, it is now one of the most popular of all ballets. The scenario, initially in two acts, was fashioned from Russian folk tales[a] and tells the story of Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse. The choreographer of the original production was Julius Reisinger. The ballet was premiered by the Bolshoi Ballet on 4 March [O.S. 20 February] 1877[1][2] at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow. Although it is presented in many different versions, most ballet companies base their stagings both choreographically and musically on the 1895 revival of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, first staged for the Imperial Ballet on 15 January 1895, at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. For this revival, Tchaikovsky's score was revised by the St. Petersburg Imperial Theatre's chief conductor and composer Riccardo Drigo.

Walking the Dog


Song by The Rolling Stones
Baby back, dressed in black
Silver buttons all down her back
High hose, tippy toes
She broke the needle and she can sew
Walking the dog

I'm just a walking the dog
If you don't know how to do it
I'll show you how to walk the dog
C'mon now c'mon

I asked her mother for fifteen cents
I see you ever jumped the fence
I jumped so high, touched the skies
Didn't get back until a quarter to five

Walking the dog
I'm just a walking the dog
If you don't know how to do it
I'll show you how to walk the dog
C'mon c'mon now

Tell me Mary, what's your twelve
How does your garden grow
What with silver bells and cockle shells
And pretty maids all in a row

Walking the dog
I'm just a walking the dog
If you don't know how to do it
I'll show you how to walk the dog
C'mon now c'mon

Banana Split for My Baby


Song by Louis Prima
Banana split for my baby
A glass of plain water for me
Banana split for my baby
A glass of plain water for me

Dispenser man, if you please
Serve my chick a mess of calories
Banana split for my baby
A glass of plain water for me

Slip back the lid, scoop everything in sight
Make it a rainbow of red, brown and white
Chocolate chip and everything that's nice
Tutti-frutti once and spumoni twice

Banana split for my baby
And a glass of plain water for me

Spray the whipped cream for at least an hour
Pile it as high as the Eiffel Tower
Load it with nuts, about sixteen tons
Top it with a pizza just for fun

Banana split for my baby
And a glass of plain water for me
Banana split for my baby
A glass of plain water for me

Banana split for my baby
A glass of plain water for me

Stack her up with crazy goo
'Cause that's the stuff she likes to wade right through

Banana split for my baby
A glass of plain water for me

Now add the cherries the kind she loves to munch
Skip one banana, use the whole darn bunch
Drown it in fudge, six or seven cans
Give her two spoons, she'll eat it with both hands

Banana split for my baby
And a glass of plain water for me

Separate checks, it must be
Charge the split to her, the water to me

Oh the banana split's for my baby
And the glass of plain water's for me
Ain't got no money
The glass of plain water's for me
