A Ray of Sunshine

Yes, that post on Friday was depressing. So here's a sun beam of light for you: Dixie Picnic, home of the Upcake (and so much more), has opened up a year-round location in Frazer, Pa. And, no, I do not own shares in the company. I just love love love their food.

Even if you can't get to Frazer, you can still order Upcakes, and they freeze well. I served them at my New Year's Eve party and froze the rest. Had one yesterday, and it was so very good.

Also, if you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen this update yesterday, but here it is again: Given recent events in the ol' personal life, I might have to do the Sea Isle City polar plunge on February 14. I'm not sure yet. I would like to see it even if I don't do it.

So I'm wondering -- anyone else here thinking about it or do it every year? I can tell you this: if it's 10 degrees out, I won't, but if it's above 40? Maybe. I'm thinking about it enough to have scouted out red Speedos because if I'm going to run into the Atlantic Ocean in New Jersey on Valentine's Day, it won't be in this.

Jen, I would do the plunge with you in a heartbeat if I were in town! I always have been tempted..but it's not exactly a challenge now here in S.Florida!

HA! I'll be in Tampa/Clearwater the weekend before t he Sea Isle plunge. Maybe I shouldn't go in the water so I don't think about how warm it is in FL when I'm in NJ!

Jen - Some friends and I are doing the 2/14 plunge to help raise awareness for Polycystic Kidney Disease. Details upcoming in a blog post. I've never done it before, but I can't wait!

That's great, Cav! I think I will be there regardless, so let me know what your plans are, ok? Or at least send me the blog post...
