They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence. -- Erma Bombeck Turkey-Carving Tips: Three Easy Steps (NAPSA)-If you want the turkey you serve to be "gobbled up" this holiday, consider improving the presentation with these simple carving tips: Be sure to use a good, sharp knife. Sharp knives are not only safer, they will help you smoothly cut thin, even slices without shredding the meat. Fortunately, you don't have to be an expert to put a razor-sharp edge on your knife. A sharpener such as Chef'sChoice(r) EdgeSelect(r) 120 can make sharpening easy. The sharpener uses 100 percent diamond-coated disks (2.5 karats' worth of diamonds!) and a polishing stage to create a more durable, arch-shaped edge in seconds. The precision guides eliminate all guesswork and that means predictable, professionally sharp edges every time it's used. For help finding a sharpener that's right for you, call 800-342-3255 or visit www.chefschoice.com. After the turkey is cooked, a meat thermometer should read 165i F when inserted in the innermost part of the thigh and wing and the thickest part of the breast. Cool the bird for 15 minutes. Cooling makes the meat firmer and easier to slice. Remove and set aside the turkey legs and the last joint of each wing. Make a long, deep (to the bone) horizontal "base cut" into the breast just above the wing. step 3 _ Slice down vertically through the breast until you meet the original base cut. This will release perfect, even slices. Keep your carving knife sharp and follow these easy steps for an elegant, beautifully carved bird that will look as good as it tastes! As we approach the holiday season, I think a lot about my Mom. I've written about her in the past and because I have so many really good memories of her, I will write about her again. Like most children, I didn't come close to appreciating how wonderful my mother was while she was alive, and I know I could have told her what a great mother she was many more times than I did. I often t01d her that I loved her. Weoften talked on the telephone, and as we hung up after each conversation, I told her I loved her. She told me she loved me too. I could hear it in her voice as she heard my love for her in my voice. Every time I talked with her, I told her I loved her. But I don't think I told her often enough why I loved her. I think about her during the holidays because she made them all special. Every few years I print her sweet potato casserole recipe, as I did last week, because it was one of the many ways Mom made special days even more specifil. A few days before Thanksgiving, I would drive to Mom's house, the house my brother, sister and Igrew up in, and find her decorating for company. Helping her was one of my favorite things to do when she was alive. Mom's dining room was 13 feet long with a buffet sitting against the wall at one end of the room. All 4 walls had doorways. Mom set up a long table and chairs for so many people that the table nearly extended out the other end of the room. Mom had a talent for decorating, so she made a beautiful centerpiece on the dining room table that covered the center almost from end to end. Her Thanksgiving centerpiece always included at least One cornucopia, candles, autumn leaves and gourds. Fresh fruit of the season could be included too. Usually she found grapes that fit easily into her color scheme. One of the things that Mom taught me was to plan ahead for which bowls and dishes I would need for a big meal like the ones we enjoyed eating on Thanksgiving Day. She taught me one way to make the big day easier was on the night before, to put out each dish and utensil that would go with it, and then put a note in the bowl or dish telling what was to go into it. With so many people arriving, it was good to know beforehand what needed to be done so we didn't get frantic looking for containers and serving pieces when we could enjoy friends and family instead. When helpful friends and relatives asked what they could do to help, the decisions were easy. Knowing where the mashed potatoes go and the sweet potatoes go, knowing that olives and pickles go in different dishes and cranberry sauce goes in a similar dish, but not quite the same Size, makes everyone feel like they are really helping. Once all of the details were worked out, we found our seats and trooped out of the doors that would get us closest to our chairs. We carefully filtered back into the dining room, people who were to sit farthest from the doors would go in first, to sit and enjoy a great meal and great conversation. Those days created wonderful memories of my Mom and her special ways of making a holiday even more special. These days my family is spread out. Many of us still live in San Diego County, but getting together is nearly impossible. Grandma and Grandpa are gone. Mom, her brothers and their wives are gone too. My generation lives in several states and the next generation has commitments to extended family through marriages. I don't think any of us has a house big enough to accommodate 4 generations of family, so we keep in touch through our computers and through occasional phone calls and small get togethers. Mom died in 1987, a few weeks after her 67th birthday. Of course I miss her loving ways and I wish sPte had lived to see her grandchildren and great grand children grow up. What I miss the most is all of the ways I could show her how much I Iove her and how much I appreciate allof the positive things she taught me that make me who I am today. I like me and I have my Mom to thank for that. These are my thoughts.

How can one throw away a half used ration book from World War I1? Then there are the pictures.

That was the day we rode Petey down to Mrs. Teagle's on what is now Heise Park, go.t off, had our picnic, couldn't figure out how to get back on the tall old dark brown steed. Aunt Elaine spent the last ten years of her life with piles of papers on her dining room table. 'Tm almost done sorting them," she said at regular intervals. A fine example she was. Hands-On Learning By introducing youth to hands- on, discovery-based STEM ' learning opportunities, out-of- school providers are teaching kids how to make technology through design thinking-rather than just consuming technology. This education is invaluable because there is a skills divide between young people who simply consume data as entertainment and kids who can apply data analytically and creatively. Research shows that the out-of-school environment advances STEM learning and increases interest in STEM- related careers, particularly among underrepresented youth. In fact, African American, Asian American and Latino households are most likely to participate in out-of-school STEM programs. As a complement to the school day, out-of-school programs also provide opportunities for trial- and-error beyond the school environment-a safe place to fail-while teaching critical 21st century skills like problem solving and perseverance, which are needed in STEM careers. Partners Supporting STEM For example, Boys & Girls Clubs of America recently partnered with Time Warner Cable to help address America's declining proficiency in STEM by, together, launching the DIY STEM program during out-of-school time at Clubs across the country. Aligned with Time Warner Cable's commitment to connect young people to the wonders of STEM, this curriculum engages Experts say the out-of-school environment plays a critical and often overlooked role in helping young people develop needed STEM skitls and competencies. Club youth ages 10 to 18 in the "science of every day," focusing on energy and electricity, engineering design, and food chemistry, to provide out-of- school opportunities for critical thinking and peer exchange. Out-of-school programs such as DIY STEM are often the first time underrepresented youth are given the opportunity to learn STEM in fun and motivating ways. These programs provide project- based learning opportunities that address real-world challenges and encourage innovative solutions, and these experiences can be life changing. According to Eddie, "1 truly believe that learning science will help kids change the world." The Importanc e Of STEM "Few issues are more important to the future of our nation as STEM education. Through strategic partnerships, I hope that more out-of-school STEM programs will be offered to underrepresented youth as a supplement to school, so they develop the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in the 21st century workplace," Williams says.
