This story about the best Thanksgiving dessert secret made me laugh.

As an engineer by education, I'm entertained by this article about why underprivileged students on the movies (with the exception of Stand and Deliver) are always being encouraged to transform themselves through writing, when some good math skills could get them a living wage.

He of the mellifluous voice, Christopher Lee, was knighted! He played Saruman in The Lord of the Rings, Count Dooku in Star Wars, Scaramanga in James Bond, and Dracula countless times. Supposedly, he’s been in more cinematic swordfights than any other actor in history.

And I’m loving this rhyme in Q-ster’s school Thanksgiving song:
Five fat turkeys sitting on a fence
The first one says, “I’m so immense!”

I hope Prince Charles was suitably impressed!

Fence/immense - that's a good one.

Oh that story about the dessert is classic. I can see that happening in my family.
