White meat has fewer calories and less fat than dark meat.  Only tom turkeys gobble. Hen turkeys make a clicking noise. Jim Parrish Mitchell Johnson Martha Pennington Mel Coleman Run exhaust fans sparingly It’s a good idea to install an exhaust hood over your stove and an exhaust fan in every bathroom—before it’s time to roast the Thanksgiving turkey or welcome houseguests for the holidays. Running the kitchen fan will help remove cooking smoke and odors. And the bathroom fans will remove steam, which can cause paint on walls and the ceiling to bubble and can even encourage mold growth. Still, you don’t want to run those fans for any longer than they’re needed. Along with the smoke, odors and steam, the fan whooshes your expensive, heated (or air conditioned) air right out of the house. So turn them on while you’re cooking or showering, and turn them right off once the steam or smoke has cleared. Another tip: Check vent openings for grease buildup every couple of months, and have them cleaned if they’re dirty. STATEMENT OF OWNERSHIP, MANAGEMENT AND CIRCULATION (Required by 39 U.S.C. 3685).
