Thanksgiving 2007: Discoveries

1. When you make a delicious brined turkey for Thanksgiving, and as a result the drippings make a really salty gravy, here's how to fix it: Get your brother in law to chop an onion, then caramelize the onion in two tablespoons of butter. Stir in two tablespoons of flour, then add two cups of water or other non-salty liquid. Add this onion sauce to the too-salty gravy. And then you will not only have better-tasting gravy, but lots and lots of it.

2. Holding a baby while you bowl with a wii may actually improve your game.

3. When you sing "The Wheels on The Bus" in Arabic, the wipers on the bus go swish swish swish just like they do in English.
