Re: “Home Sweet Home

Mika provided the desserts for our wedding this summer and did an outstanding job. Our dessert buffet was the stuff dreams are made of - every type of treat imaginable. So happy she finally has her own shop!

Re: “Rabbit Season

I have eaten many rabbits and I would say they tast great. Why are you all upset about her eating. If you like to just eat Veg then it is your right. The same for her. I for one have some I do the same with along with cow's, pigs and birds. I like to eat food of all kinds and want the stuff I know is rased well. Look in the walmart and tell me there meat is good. Even look at there veg and say you eat stuff all natural. Rabbit in a veg stew is the best.

Re: “Glass on the Go

Hello, what a fantastic collection. I will be in Spokane this week (10-14 through 10-16). How do I find you? Thank you.

Re: “Glass on the Go

Kudos to Miss Miller-Krezelak for a superbly scribed piece of prose on Miss Renee Cebula's new, cool business venture. We were particulary struck by the role that Dean Martin has played in her life and livelihood! Never was, never will be anyone as cool as the King of Cool....oh, to return to the days when Dino walked the earth. Know that ilovedinomartin has picked up this great great story to share with it's readership.

Re: “My Confession

I don't see any slander or intent to hurt her family, but the family may perceive this behavior as harmful. She is opening her mind to the possibilty of another mindset, one which is curious, accepting, and questioning. A mindset that doesn't condemn you for a sin committed 4000 or so years ago, which requires believing that the only way to be spared from hell is to acknowledge that Jesus will save you from this sin you never committed. Maybe you never were born with this sin. Babies all over the world live and die without exposure to Christianity, and I cannot believe they are all burning in hell for eternity.

I am too distracted by how beautiful that cupcake is to really read the whole article! That is some awesome piping!

Re: “My Confession

I don't see where anyone has told Jordy she should not express her need to separate from a faith based life. The comments to her are stating she is loved regardless of the disregard she has for her families feelings. We all have the freedom of choice and what a blessing that is.

Re: “My Confession

I grew up in the same town as you, not Catholic, but a very strict religious upbringing. I can sympathize with some of your feelings. I don't blame my parents, I believe they were duped into it just as much as I was. I do not practice religion and do not raise my daughter in a specific religion, but I do know that if she comes to me later in her life and says she wants to be involved in one, that is her choice. I learned from my upbringing that I do not want to force anything on my children and I believe the way you feel about religion has happened because, just like me, it was forced regardless of what we wanted and now you are the black sheep for expressing yourself. I applaud you for being honest and choosing for yourself as an adult.

Re: “My Confession

You are a beautiful young woman
You are a gifted writer
You are strong and independent
You have compassion for people and animals
You champion the underdog
You have opportunity in life that many others do not have
You have a family-starting with your Grandmother-that loves you no matter what you write.
You have a lot of growing up to do because you have all of the above because of your Mother.
I have faults
I have fears
I have doubts
I have a mean tongue when I have been drinking
I have matured in 43 years
I don't doubt you mean what you write at the moment because we are both afflicted with self righteous indignation.
I love you Jordy
I want the world to be easy and kind and goodness for you
I want you to apologize to your mother-not for telling it the way you see it is-but for hurting her so deeply.
Please use your talent for good and not evil-you are worth more than lashing out at your family when you feel hurt.
Sincerely, Aunt Shannon

Re: “My Confession

I happen to personally know the Byrd family. I know how much Jordann's mom and dad love her. As a mother I can not think of any greater insult and hurt than to have my child write something like this for the world to read. If Jordy you are as you say an atheist then why hide behind that statement and blame your problems on your parents. They did not make the decisions for you. God has given you free will, to do and to say and to feel any way you choose. So be a grown up and stop playing the victim own up to the things that are making you unhappy. I know that even though this is hurtful to everyone in your family, they will continue to pray for you, because they love you. And no matter how misguided you may think their religion or intentions are they have done things out of love for you. You failed to mention how your family has helped you, emotionally and financially. As a writer or reporter aren't you suppose to cover all side of a story?

Re: “Update | Dawn of the Donut

Business prospers and will continue to prosper when successful business owners put themselves into a position to help recreate and build, even when the majority feels that building is unnecessary. It is clear that there is some personal pride here on the responses and their "passion" for the zombie theme, but it is also clear that this theme was not successful. IF the business was successful they would
Not have been for sale, and would not have recieved so much negative banter on the theme or its business. I am excited to see another business owner in Spokane that knows from experience what it takes to operate and be successful. Another thing that is clear is that these people who are wishing failure for these two owners have not been in a position to build themselves or have recieved great hardship in their business endeavors. Probably for their ignorance and emotional buyin to a theme and it's so called success....I would imagine, at any rate a "pretty" cupcake or clean, family environment is better than a run down, dirty, portly managed business. Also, it is better to be employed then unemployed...(unless you get a free zombie movie on Netflix). I am excited to see this business grow, and grow they shall!

Re: “Update | Dawn of the Donut

There are some great comments here. I hope the owners are reading. It is very clear that if they remove the zombies, the business will fail.

Re: “Update | Dawn of the Donut

I was in Spokane a few months ago and stayed at the howard johnson hotel, and when we see the dawn of the doughnut we were immediately intrigued by the place. Neither one of us are big zombie fans but how could you not go inside. Anyways we had fun, we took pictures with the zombies and had fun with the props. We attempted to go back a few weeks ago but it was already closed. If the zombie theme/decorations is taken down that it is just like any other doughnut shop and therefore doesn't make it unique or different.

Re: “Update | Dawn of the Donut

If they remove the zombie theme it will close its doors in less then a month it is too close to the other shop they own and the shop on Hamilton. Over saturation of pretty much the same business in less then a mile or two = death to your business. I'm sorry why ruin a good thing sure add to the menu expand the hours but don't kill a good thing. As for you people that don't agree that this is a bad idea quit living under the rock that you have been under for the past 10 years an turn on your tv or go to a video game shop zombies are everywhere they are big business right now. The only reason that shop floated as long as it did was because of its theme. The other shops in Spokane pretty much have this corner of the market monopolized to remove the theme is suicide for that business it will not make it out of 2015 mark my words.

Re: “Update | Dawn of the Donut

For shame! Keep the zombie theme! If the business idea is working why change it? It's not a distraction from success it's a marketing idea that people see while driving by and go "oh hey that is wierd" it draws people's attention which I'm pretty sure is the first rule of advertising like a catchy show tune or annoying pig screaming wheeeeeee. It catches your attention and makes it memorable.

Re: “Update | Dawn of the Donut

Upset Dawner, sounds like your dislike for Celebrations runs deeper than donuts and cupcakes. With your repetitive comments about them being so "pretty" and how awful you think the owners are, perhaps you have a jealousy factor. I suggest a makeover, counseling, and a little more Jesus in your life. It's cupcakes and donuts people, this doesn't make anyone awful or a bad person. Thank you to the couple for buying this LOCALLY OWNED & MADE business and saving the DOTD employees from losing their jobs!!

Re: “Update | Dawn of the Donut

Spokane has few enough places that really stand out. I feel that for a city, that is not entirely tiny, we lack diversity in every sense of the word. Why change one of the unique and interesting places that we do have? As one with multiple food allergies, I can't appreciate the food either way, but it does sadden me to see one of those aforementioned elusive "stand out places" close. I do fear that the creative and unique, which appealed to a (slightly) more diverse audience, is being replaced by something a bit more conservative and main-stream. All of that being said, I am joyful a small Spokane business is doing so well for themselves and I wish them luck in their new endeavor, I just hope they will consider all the people who would be saddened by the loss of a different type of donut shop.

Re: “Update | Dawn of the Donut

Wow, hater comments! Spokane has many businesses closing all of the time and owners of Celebration should be commended for keeping one open. Small businesses are crucial to the community and these owners should be supported for keeping the doors open. Furthermore, they obviously know how to operate a successful business, so their fresh take on their new venture should at least be given a chance. Finally, no (read: zero) businesses have stayed around that is based on gimmick, which is why Dawn of the Donut was closing. At the end of the day, a successful business is based on product and customer service. Longer hours, fresher products, these are the core to longevity. I didn't go to Dawn of the Donut before because I'm under the school of thought that if you need a gimmick to get me in the door, your products probably aren't up to par. However, I will definitely go there now.

Re: “Update | Dawn of the Donut

Great idea for a zombie theme to get your name out there but that's a niche market. You go to a place repeatedly for good quality and great service. There shop in garland is delicious and always a great vibe. If you want something that will melt in your mouth good and looks pretty then go into this revamped shop. (What's wrong with pretty? I don't want my food to look ugly!) Plus the owners are local and as sweet as their frosting. Good job owens!
