It’s a meeting of holidays so rare it will be tens of thousands of years before it happens again. Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah — the Jewish Festival of Lights — fall on the same day this year, creating what many celebrants have dubbed “Thanksgivukkah.” And it’s opened up a whole new world of culinary opportunities.
Here’s another reason to be thankful this holiday season — the cost of putting Thanksgiving dinner on the table is down slightly from last year.
Some cooks like to change up the Thanksgiving meal — a sous vide turkey here, a sweet potato souffle there. But on a holiday dedicated to tradition, innovation can spark revolt.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Every year about this time, millions of turkeys are fattened up so American households can chow them down. But in "Free Birds," two brave turkeys make it their mission to travel back in time and get their breed off the Thanksgiving menu.

This lovely short-haired, green-eyed girl will thrive in a home without dogs or very young children. She’s best solo or with other laid back cats.
Ahwatukee has its own secret garden hidden at the Ahwatukee Swim and Tennis Center, but organizers and designers behind the garden don’t want it to be such a secret.
The smell of grass, the sound of sprinklers and the shade of three large ficus trees have all disappeared from Arthur and Jeananne Pastin’s yard. Instead, barrel cacti, red bird of paradise shrubs and palo verde trees sprout from gray- and brown-flecked granite gravel.

Beholding the late James Gandolfini doing a lovely job in a change-of-pace role significantly intensifies the already funny/sad aspects of "Enough Said," an engaging comic romance set amid the minefields that imperil starting up mid-life relationships. The title notwithstanding, writer-director Nicole Holofcener's look at a 50-ish divorced mother with a daughter about to leave home is never at a loss for words, many of them quite amusing, making the film a leading contender for best girls' night movie of the season. For their part, men will enjoy watching Gandolfini in a relaxed, self-effacing, regular guy performance.
Little brown Zoey is definitely all puppy, full of energy and so happy just to be alive. Curious about everyone and everything and just an awesome little girl. She even still has that wonderful puppy breath. She loves going on outings, car rides and chasing after toys, leaves or birds, etc. Zoey is a petite little girl with a big heart full of love and ready to open it up to anyone willing to give her a chance. She is a great little shopper as she demonstrated on a recent trip to Pet Club, checking out everything on the bottom shelf but never once taking anything in her mouth. She is a joy to be around and will bring a smile to your face and everyone she meets. Zoey loves other dogs so a home with another canine to romp with would be nice. Her forever family must be one that is ready to give her guidance and show her right from wrong. She is not completely house trained and needs some work on that, but she is a very smart little girl so she will master this in no time.
