Voodoo Doughnuts


I dreaded going.  Voodoo doughnuts  is a cult so actually I had to go!  Otherwise how would you know about it?  So we went, Tom and I on a Sunday morning.  By the way, he still has not forgiven me for my last post!  We added it into our hike making sure we skirted the Mission where all the homeless hang out.  That is sort of where Voodoo doughnuts is located, not the greatest part of town.  It’s also infamous for it’s lines and if there’s anything I hate it’s standing in line.  But anything for my faithful readers!  Standing in line in this town is a right of passage.  I have never seen so many lines outside of restaurants, doughnut shops, ice cream parlors anywhere else.  It has to be Social Media and the younger generation seems to have nothing better to do than join lines.

Will Portland Always Be a Retirement Community for the Young?

As American cities compete for college-educated workers, Portland has a unique problem: It has way too many.


Back to Voodoo:   doughnut case ceiling doughnut

We bought a half dozen doughnuts and didn’t have to wait very long!  The line was blessedly only about 30 people long.  As a repeat customer, the blonde in the above picture blushed when we asked what her favorite doughnut was.  After much pressing she answered  “The C**k and B****s.  No need for explanation:  big doughnut

A cream filled delectable treat.  Then there is the signature:

Portland is a series of discoveries!

To my faithful customers:  September is free sign up month to be a distributor!  It normally is $50 to sign up to have as much fun as I do selling SeneGence products.  So if it moves you, my website is: www.lips2love.com  Up at the top of the page, it says:  Sell SeneGence.  Click on that, my name goes in automatically and you’re in!  I can guide you through everything else.

From Real Simple Magazine:  Finding Motivation on Monday:

Slap On Some Lipstick

A 2011 study found that women who wore just a touch of makeup looked more competent than those who go bare-faced.  Try a classic Red, which has the power to make even a so-so outfit look polished.


I rest my case.

Tell me, is Portland unique in the lines category??

    Hi, always ready for another posting. Watching the Giants game, just came back for 10-4 lead, exciting game. I’m sure you are watching.

    We will be leaving for Portland on December 23. If you want to come early and stay with us Sunday and Monday night, we could maybe go out on Monday night and get together with some of your friends. We will be leaving very early on the 23rd. We will probably return on Monday, December 29th. Let me know what you would like to do? See you soon. Love, Diane
