6:15- Thanksgiving meal is costing us a little less this year. Like $.44 less. Hey, it's something!
The price of the average Thanksgiving dinner has declined! This year, turkey and all the fixings- including stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie- will cost $49.04, down 44 cents since 2012. Experts say we have stable food and fuel prices to thank for the price cut. And speaking of fuel, if you’re looking to save even more dough this Thanksgiving, consider driving to your family gathering- not only do gas prices usually drop in the weeks leading up to the holiday, but average domestic airfare is up nearly 10% from last year, and Amtrak prices have increased more than 4%.

6:45-COLD WEATHER MAKES MEN FRISKY _ If your husband has been coming on to you more and more over the last month, there's a reason -- cold weather makes men frisky. Researchers asked 114 men to rate the attractiveness of women every three months. Peak arousal was between December and February. Researchers are blaming all the clothes we wear. Skin is rarely seen, so men go crazy when they see it.
7:15 JFK Assassination Anniversary. 50 Years ago today was a dark day in our country's history. I wasn't alive then but even so, it was a pivotal day. Over the last few weeks, I've seen a lot of interesting documentaries, interviews, and news stories on some of the people that were in Dallas that day 50 years ago. What strikes me is that days like that one or September 11th are defiining moments in our country's history. We are taken aback, we are in shock, we drop a lot of what our differences are and we come together as a country. It's a shame that sad things like that have to happen for us to do that.
Back in 1997, I was in Dallas for a wedding and was able to go the Book Deposity where the shooting occured. It was haunting. Here are some of the documentaries etc. http://www.ibtimes.com/jfk-assassination-tv-shows-when-where-watch-specials-movies-coverage-50th-anniversary-friday-nov-22
Here are some events today that commemorate the day:
8:45- Friday Toy Memory: Technology...old school style! I remember the P.C. before it was really personal! I recall going to the Computer lab on campus and bringing my big old 3x5 floppy disk that you had to cart along with you. Working on Word Perfect to get your papers done. Oh the joy of computing in the late 80's early 90's!
This is kinda what it was like at the time!
