    Many of you know about the Virgin Mary Holding Baby Jesus pretzel. Well, I have witnessed this.

    Today was Krista's birthday. Krista is the girl who found this pretzel, and auctioned it on eBay instead of eating it. Golden Palace of course won, and for a whopping $10.600. The family decided to give ALL (yes ALL) of the money to different charities, and Golden Palace decided that she should have something to keep for herself. Today, on her birthday we presented her with a huge $10,600 check, as well as a horse that she wanted and had been learning to ride for the past few weeks.

    She had no clue that she was about to get a horse for her birthday, and of course the media ate the event up. It was a Kodak moment, and Golden Palace was right there in every picture. :)

    Just figured I would share. It was a pretty cool event.

    :D

    Yes the family was very happy. They are really nice too, and had nice relatives and friends over as well. I had some good conversations with them about other high profile auctions :)

    And yes I now work for GP. :D
