Save Your Monopoly Token

When you play a game of MONOPOLY do you always use the same token? Ask just about anyone and you’ll find most people have a strong opinion when it comes to their token preference. But now the fate of these iconic eight tokens rests in the hands of fans around the world. One token will be retired for good, and a new one will take its place and find MONOPOLY token fame based on a vote at

I’m always the top hat and Shae likes the Scottie Dog.  I would hate to see either of these go.

The five new tokens up for consideration are: the diamond ring, guitar, toy robot, cat, and helicopter.

I do like the Diamond Ring idea and the kids would love the Guitar or Toy Robot though.

How did you Ring in the New Year?

Happy New Year to all of our Friends, Family, Readers, Sweepers and Bloggin’ Buddies.  Last night was spent as a family in the safety and comfort of our own home.  Our celebration actually started earlier in the day at my best friend’s house with a bottle of wine, exchange of Christmas gifts and homemade soup.

We headed home in time to enjoy or yearly tradition of fondue for the the New Year.  We enjoyed a new recipe with grilled steak, crusty bread, apples and veggies.  Shaun was a huge help shredding cheese and setting the table.  After cheese we started a game of Monopoly, the traditional one not the kids version.  After a couple hours of monopoly we went in for chocolate fondue with marshmallows, graham crackers, brownie bites, cookies and fresh strawberries and of course a little bubbly.  Shaun was a HUGE help again, he trimmed all the stems from the strawberries will I melted down the chocolates and cream.

Monopoly continued past the stroke of midnight with Rob and Shaun duking it out but Shaun was victorious. Morning came fast and today will be another spent with family and friends.  Hope you all had a memorable and safe evening and we wish you a grand year of happiness, achievements and met goals!
