Divine Donuts & Street Sports

A fresh start to your week deserves a fresh batch of memory-stirring moments baked with only the finest ingredients.

Guess the historical figure

Who are we?

You don't need a palace to be royalty. We earned our respective crowns - the queen of jazz, and the king of inside swing - with a golden voice and a Steinway. Between us, we won 22 Grammys, leaving no doubt that Jazz wouldn't be the same without us.

Play ball

"The picture is taken in Philadelphia circa 1909. My father’s father, Gus (August Baust Sr.) is the umpire, his brother Joe is the batter, and his brother Henry is catching. Gus always wanted his son Gus Jr to play professional baseball but WWII had something to say about it. I think this photo is fetching because it shows a simpler time and has decent action. Those streets look so clean though crowded with row houses."

The way we were

Did someone say 'donuts'?

Resisting a donut's magnetism is a fool's exercise. Fortunately, young snack seekers are happy to rise to the tasty occasion.

Ella Fitzgerald and Oscar Peterson are today's historical figures.
We'll be back tomorrow. See you then :-)
