Intergalactic Turkey Dinner

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Ea Ch t Mo ick re en !

As you are sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner this weekend, take a second to stare out into the deep dark sky. You might see some extraterrestrial life starring back at you. Okay, maybe not, but we are getting steps closer to finding company on other planets. A team of astronomers from the University of California and Carnegie Institute of Washington have announced the discovery of a new planet, Gliese 581g. The big news? This planet may very well have liquid water on its surface, which is of course the most important factor for the support and existence of extraterrestrial life. These brainy astronomers have been able to deduce that Gliese 581g’s surface temperature is similar to Earths. Meaning that some of the water on the planet’s surface has to be in liquid form rather than ice or vapor. At 3 to 4 times the mass of Earth and with an orbit time of just under 37 days, it is also estimated that Gliese 581g has enough gravity to hang onto its own atmosphere. An atmosphere combined with liquid water gives these astronomers the closest discovery to date of a potentially habitable planet. To discover the planet, the team used 238 separate observations of the planet’s star over a period of 11 years. Through their observations they could determine minute changes in the star’s velocity that was occurring from the gravitational pull of the planet, and so on and so on. The real news is that the team at Good News Weekly is investigating how easy it will be to buy and rename the planet to “Good News”. Imagine what it would be like to live a whole year out in just 37 days. That is a lot of happy Good News Years!

Prepaid Traffic Tickets?

Platinum Tie Bartending
Bartender Services in Vancouver and Area

A California based company called Prepaid Traffic Tickets is now selling pre-paid discount traffic ticket vouchers to Canadian drivers. It seems, this might be your closest shot to a get-out-of-jail-free card. The vouchers, which can be purchased online for a small fee, can be used to pay for future traffic violations. Voucher values range from $50-$150, have an expiry date between 60 and 180 days, and retail anywhere from $14 to $60. Founder Keith Kelly says that the idea came to him while playing a game of monopoly with his kids. "As I picked up a get-out-of-jail-free card, I flashed back to a recent speeding ticket and resulting traffic school. A light bulb came on, the dots connected, and here we are." There are concerns that the vouchers will lead to people purposely breaking the law. However, the good news is… pre-paid vouchers have a tendency to get left in dresser drawers long past their expiry. This leads us to believe that the pre-paid traffic voucher is just another gimmicky stocking stuffer, with a humorous, yet low value appeal to intelligent consumers. Drive safe this holiday weekend!

West Coast Chocolate Festival
The saying "chocolate is good for you" is not entirely false...at least in our minds its not..that is why we were particularly drawn to this chocolaty festival. There is an increasing appreciation for the healthy benefits of good chocolate and these festival events, all 160 of them to be exact, will help celebrate the true magic of chocolate. This is a festival for all ages and cultures and aims to educate people about proper chocolate consumption and the lesser known positive benefits of this heavenly delectable treat. The non-for-profit festival is completely volunteer run and dedicated to empowering youth by creating various mentored work experiences for youth in all of the different events. There are events for all ages, including chocolate receptions, galas, and afternoons of chocolate education, entertainment, food, and family fun. For a complete listing of events, please visit: www.chocolatefestival.ca When: October,15- November, 10 2010 Where: Fraser Valley, BC Lower Mainland and beyond!

No Two Recipes Are Alike
Ah, Thanksgiving - a time for family, friends, drinks, cranberry sauce, turkey, gravy, and of course, the world famous pumpkin pie. It doesn’t get much better than that, or does it? Some Thanksgiving Day Goers think it does. By pushing the boundaries of the traditional meal, these festive enthusiasts bring a whole new world of cooking techniques to our most treasured feasting holiday. Texans have a favorite method for cooking turkey; they deep fry them. By using a giant vat of hot oil, a 15lb. turkey can be fully cooked from frozen in roughly an hour. No basting required!

Why not do it like they do in Alberta and stick a beer can up the turkey’s butt. By popping the top and letting the bird rest horizontally, beer slowly steams inside, leaving it oh so succulent. And of course, it wouldn’t be a French Canadian Thanksgiving without a little maple in the mix. Try the famous maple stuffing, traditional ingredients bathed in a half cup of maple syrup. The Haligonian’s (people from Halifax) have reinvented the pumpkin pie with ice cream desert by blending the two and creating a pumpkin ice cream. Vancouverites take the meaning of port city all too seriously with their port infused cranberry sauce recipe. Or why not head down to Colorado, where Christmas comes a little bit early with their eggnog sweet potato recipe. Sound a bit strange? The claim to fame of this recipe is NO leftovers EVER! It seems everyone has their own recipe, so what’s yours? For a copy of these recipes visit goodnewsweekly.ca Turkey Jerky A poultry farmer was experimenting to breed turkeys with more legs for greater profits. Finally, he succeeded. While narrating the results to his friends, he told them, "The turkey I bred had six legs!" His friends who had got quite excited, eagerly asked, "What about the taste of a turkey with 6 legs, is it any better?"

One snowy night, Sherlock Holmes was in his house sitting by a fire. All of a sudden a snowball came crashing through his window, breaking it. Holmes got up and looked out the window just in time to see three neighborhood kids who were brothers run around a corner. Their names were John Crimson, Mark Crimson and Paul Crimson. The next day Holmes got a note on his door that read "? Crimson. He broke your window." Which of the three Crimson brothers should Sherlock Holmes question about the incident?
