What To Do with Those Leftovers

Hope all my truckbuddies are having a good turkey day.  M. P. is dining with his four children, their spouses, and their mother today; we will have our own turkey feast next week.  But in the meantime, here are some really good ideas for all those leftovers you are wondering what to do with.  Enjoy.

Note: For the turkey roll-ups, instead of crescent rolls you can also use plain biscuits, rolled flat and cut into squares or triangles. These make great snacks or sandwiches.

Okay, So Just WHO Is Destroying the Traditional Family?

Breaking news out of Alaska: Noted Christianist, TV dancer, and unwed mother Bristol Palin is pregnant - and unmarried - again. And her righteous, God-fearing, Bible-believing, gun-toting, born-again mother says that is just oh-so-wonderful, and best of all, God is totally fine with it, too. Heck yeah! Jump ahead to the 3:20 mark:

Meanwhile in Ireland, that country's first same-sex marriage took place today as Cormac Gollogly and Richard Dowling, a barrister and a banker, tied the knot in County Tipperary, after 12 years as a committed couple, as reported by the Irish Times. All good wishes to the happy couple.

I could say more, but I'll let you fellas judge for yourselves which story is praiseworthy and which is just total bullshit.

Tired Old Queen at the Movies: The Day the Earth Stood Still

I should have posted this last week. Steve Hayes reviews:
Halloween brings thrills and suspense as debonair Michael Rennie arrives from another planet to warn the Earth of impending doom in Robert Wise’s Sci-Fi classic, The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951). With a brilliant supporting cast including Patricia Neal, Billy Grey, and Hugh Beaumont, and a spine-tingling score by legendary composer Bernard Herrmann. It’s just the thing to set the hair on the back of your neck on end. Happy Halloween from Tired Old Queen at the Movies!

Catch more fabulous movie reviews at Steve's YouTube channel.

Sunday Drive: This Is My Song

In 1967, Paul Mauriat and his orchestra recorded this lovely instrumental version of the song written by Charlie Chaplin - yep, that Charlie Chaplin - which was an international hit for Petula Clark that same year.
