Talking Turkey

M.P.'s favorite meal is Thanksgiving dinner, so turkey cookery is taken very seriously at our house.  He has his own particular methods and secret ingredients, developed over many years, that I can't possibly share with you all.  But as a public service, here are some tips and tricks from leading authorities to make your turkey day a success.

If all else fails, call or text the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line at 1-800-BUTTERBALL.

But before you cook, you must thaw that bird. Which means, start today! Here's how:

Bon appetit, y'all.

Who Were the Proto-Indo-Europeans?

I'm sure all my truckbuddies are as concerned with this question as I am, and the first 15 minutes of this documentary tell you just about all you could want to know on that topic.

But mainly I'm posting this vid so you can admire along with me the brute on the title card, who makes scattered appearances throughout the film, beginning at the 1:25 mark.  You're welcome.
