If you’ve ever won a prize on GSN, you’ve heard from Grace! She’s the heart and soul of the Oodles Prize Center. In addition to contacting winners and sending prizes, she maintains and runs the prize division. 

Grace went on a pilgrimage to Israel over the holidays and our Golden Oodle accompanied her.

She told us she had a wonderful, spiritual, and inspiring visit. Below are photos Grace wanted to share. Click on them to view larger!

  1. What a great trip! Knowing I will never get to go to a place like that,I really enjoyed the pictures. Love the Oodle placed up high on the north coast and the beach photo too! Thanks for sharing with us.

      • THANK YOU, GRACE, FOR SHARING YOUR WONDERFUL PILGRIMAGE TO ERETZ YISRAEL! YOUR PHOTOS WERE SO BEAUTIFUL. NATURALLY A PHOTO OF ANY PART OF ISRAEL WOULD BE BEAUTIFUL BECAUSE THE LAND IS SO LOVELY. I LIKED ALL OF THE PHOTOS, BUT THE ONE THAT WAS REALLY AWESOME WAS THE ONE IN FRONT OF THE TANK MUSEUM. WHEN YOU WERE HOLDING THE GOLDEN OODLE UP, IT REFLECTED THE SCENERY BEHIND YOU AND IT ALMOST LOOKED LIKE HEBREW LETTERING. SO COOL! DID YOU CLIMB MASADA? WOW, YOU MUST BE IN GREAT SHAPE. THAT IS A HARD WALK TO GET ON TOP OF THAT MOUNTAIN! ONE SPECIAL THOUGHT ABOUT THE GOLDEN OODLE IN ALL THE LOCATIONS. THERE IS A FAMOUS SONG, “JERUSALEM OF GOLD” THAT WAS WRITTEN ABOUT THE TIME OF ISRAEL’S BECOMING AN OFFICAL NATION. (IT WAS ALWAYS ISRAEL FOR ABOUT 5000 YEARS), BUT IT BECAME THE MODERN STATE OF ISRAEL MAY 1948. THIS SONG IS ALMOST AS SPECIAL TO ISRAEL AS THE HAKTIVAH, THE NATIONAL ANTHEM. I THOUGHT OF THE PERFECT PLACE FOR THE GOLDEN OODLE WOULD BE IN THAT GOLDEN LAND! BY THE WAY, GRACE, YOUR NAME IN HEBREW IS “CHANA” IT IS SOMETIMES SPELLED MORE IN ENGLISH AS “HANNAH”. BEAUTIFUL NAME. CHANA IS MY GRANDDAUGHTER’S NAME. THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR TRIP WITH US ESPECIALLY THOSE OF US WHO LONG TO GO TO ISRAEL. I HAVE MANY FRIENDS THAT HAVE MADE ALIYAH WHICH IS THE TERM USED WHEN A JEWISH PERSON GOES TO LIVE IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL. IN SPITE OF ALL THE TERRORISTS PROBLEMS, IT IS REALLY LOVELY AND AS IT SAYS IN ISAIAH WHEN HE PROPHESIED THAT “THE DESERT SHALL BLOOM AS THE ROSE”, YOU CAN SEE WITH ALL THE GARDENS, VINEYARD, ORCHARDS, FARM FIELDS, OLIVE GROVES, ETC., ETC., AND YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THAT THIS PROPHESY HAS INDEED COME TO PASS! MY HUSBAND AND I WANT TO GO THERE SOON. GLAD YOU GOT TO ENJOY THE LAND, GRACE! AM YISRAEL CHAI ! LONG LIVE ISRAEL! SHALOM ALL! 🙂

        • Francine, thank you for your wonderful note and enlightening us with your knowledge of Israel. You are so spot on when you said that despite this war-torn country, the land is absolutely beautiful. There were many farms with olive and date trees, very green mountains and hills, lots of cows grazing the pastures, and such a mixture of the ancient and the modern. We had an incredible visit and I hope you will have the opportunity to experience the same!

  2. and this is why I enjoy GSN soooo much.
    Grace Thank You for sharing such wonderful pictures of your trip.
    It’s nice to see and learn and gain knowledge from all sources.
    Thanks GSN and all my fellow players!
    Interaction!
    This is why we miss our players page……………….

  3. PS. Grace Thanks for keeping the Prize Center stocked. I like the “Buy it Now” –
    I think it’s fair the way it used to be a limit so we could all try to get one. I wish there were more items. Also the GSN Umbrella is cool- but very high-priced!
    Ever think of having a “sale”?
