The compromise spending bill for $1.1 trillion keeps the government open through September, according to CNN. It increases funding to Head Start by $1 billion for early childhood education which makes sense after its recent low point with the forced budget cuts last year. It increases the paychecks of federal workers and military personnel by one percent. It reduces funding to the IRS and Environmental Protection Agency. It launches policies at getting more low-risk passengers through security quicker at airports. So it has a little bit in it for just about everyone. But once again, Congress is kicking the can down the road because we are going to have this same contentious conversation next fall when this extension expires.

The results are in and we have winners in our January 2014 $5,000 Facebook Merchandise Giveaway for Homeless Shelters that were nominated by YOU! This was one of the most unusual random selection of winners, as two homeless shelters were nominated so many times that they were selected for more than one award! We use a computer generated selection process, so we went with giving WestCare’s Pikeville Emergency/Homeless Shelter in Pikeville, KY $200 in merchandise, as they were selected twice and Harvard Square Homeless Shelter in Cambridge, MA won $500 in merchandise as they were selected five times!

Perfect timing. With the country as cold as it is right now, blankets are a pretty good prize to receive! From the homeless to pet shelters, we know the blankets will be a blessing for all.

Here's a lovely letter that made our day from a teacher who won in one of DollarDays' monthly Facebook contests, and has kept in touch with us ever since. In fact, Virginia Heraz, our Director of Marketing, visited the classroom in Waukegan, IL last fall! Really, this is what life is all about---caring about others and giving without expectation. Teacher Julie Ahern and her second grade students have a huge place in our hearts. Thank you to them for caring and remembering us during the holidays. From all of us at DollarDays, we wish you a happy holiday season! You make us smile!

I love finding simple old world recipes and bringing them back to life. And this old world egg nog recipe is so delicious, after one sip, even egg nog nay sayers will have a glass! Or two!

This recipe is a delicious trip back in time. There are several origins of the word "nog." One is a block of wood or a cup carved from a block of wood. I like to use a handmade palm wood cup from Thailand to sip my egg nog. An alternate definition is "a strong beer" from Norfolk, England.
