• It was lexicographer Samuel Johnson who made the following sage observation: “Always, set a high value on spontaneous kindness. He whose inclination prompts him to cultivate your friendship of his own accord, will love you more than one whom you have been at pains to attach to you.” • On Jan. 31, 2013, it officially became legal for women to wear pants in Paris. Before that, a law on the books only allowed women to wear pants if they were “holding a bicycle handlebar or the reins of a horse,” or if they had requested special permission from the police to dress like men. • Japanese consumers are now able to buy a smartphone attachment that emits the odors of short ribs, beef tongue and

buttered potatoes. Other attachments are also available, with scents such as the ylang-ylang flower, cinnamon rolls, coffee, corn soup, mint, strawberries, jasmine and curry. • It’s well known that famed children’s book author Dr. Seuss had no children of his own, but you might be surprised to learn that he created an imaginary daughter, Chrysanthemum Pearl. He dedicated his book “The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins” to her: “To Chrysanthemum Pearl, aged 89 months, going on 90.” • If you’re like 6 percent of Americans, when you vacuum you do it in your underwear -- or naked. • Before the invention of the electric light, people slept, on average, nine hours a night. Since then, it’s been about 7.5. Sleep researchers say that in a lab setting, people deprived of electric light go back to sleeping nine hours a night. ••• Thought for the Day: “If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” -- Nora Roberts

• On Dec. 8, 1542, in Linlithgow Palace in Scotland, a daughter is born to James V, the dying king of Scotland. Named Mary, she was the only surviving child of her father and ascended to the Scottish throne when the king died just six days after her birth. • On Dec. 2, 1777, legend has it that Philadelphia housewife and nurse Lydia Darragh single-handedly saves the lives of Gen. George Washington and his Continental Army. She made notes when she overheard the British planning a surprise attack and got them to Washington. • On Dec. 6, 1921, The Irish Free State, comprising four-fifths of Ireland, is declared, ending a five-year Irish struggle for independence from Britain. The Irish Free State was renamed Eire, and is now called the Republic of Ireland. • On Dec. 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is ratified, bringing an end to the prohibition of alcohol. Prohibition did little more than slow the flow of booze, and bootleggers like Al Capone built criminal empires out of illegal distribution.

• On Dec. 4, 1945, the U.S. Senate approves U.S. participation in the United Nations. The U.N. allowed world leaders to observe each other as never before, as in the 1961 incident when Russian leader Nikita Khrushchev presented a spectacle by pounding his table with his shoe for emphasis during a U.N. debate. • On Dec. 3, 1979, the last Pacer rolls off the assembly line at the American Motors Corp. (AMC) factory. In 1975, the ads said, “When you buy any other car, all you end up with is today’s car. When you get a Pacer, you get a piece of tomorrow.” Today polls and experts agree: The Pacer was one of the worst cars of all time. • On Dec. 7, 1982, the first execution by lethal injection takes place at the state penitentiary in Huntsville, Texas. Charles Brooks, Jr., convicted of murdering an

auto mechanic, received an intravenous injection of sodium pentothal, the barbiturate that is known as a “truth serum” when administered in lesser doses. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Queen Anne Desk

Q: I have what I think is a Queen Anne desk. Even though it does seem similar to this style of furniture, I can’t find a date on it. Where would it be imprinted? -- Patrick, West Warwick, Ill. A: It probably would not have a date actually on the piece. This was seldom done by cabinetmakers. The Queen Anne style of furniture was developed during the reign of Anne, Queen of Great Britain (1702-1714). Cabriole legs and curving lines often are found in furniture from this period. Most of the pieces I’ve seen were made during the early years of the last century. To determine if your piece is antique and genuine, you need to consult with an expert. Don’t rely on a neighbor, unless the neighbor is a certified appraiser. ••• Q: I have a glass bowl that is signed “Chippendale.” According to what I’ve been told, the bowl was a wedding gift in 1925. I can’t find the mark in any of the reference books I own. Can you help me? -- Susan, Deland, Fla. A: One of the better references is “Miller’s Antiques Marks,” compiled by Judith Miller. This portable, pocketsize book helps identify and date such items as silver, bronzes, ceramics, glass, costume jewelry, dolls and even teddy bears. Each mark is labeled with the name of the factory or designer that used it, its location, dates of operation, plus additional information when available. Your mark, for example, was used by the Jefferson Glass Company of Follansbee, Wyo., from 1900 until 1933. This reference, distributed by Hachette Book Group, is $9.99 and available at amazon.com. ••• Q: I have a copy of “You’ve Had It, Charlie Brown,” by Charles M. Schulz, published in 1969. Is it valuable? -- Ada, Sioux Falls, S.D. A: I’ve checked with several used book dealers, and they seem to agree that your book is probably worth about $15. ••• Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Butternut Squash Soup 2 tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1 package (20-ounce) chopped butternut squash 3 cups water 1 1/2 cups applesauce 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Add applesauce to your butternut squash soup for a flavor that will bring you back to childhood. Brownbag lunches in grade school, baby’s messy smile at her first taste. Applesauce is a treat everyone can enjoy, since it’s naturally fat-free and low in calories. We used the unsweetened variety -- the best ones list apples as their sole ingredient -- to give our easy recipe a rich, fruity flavor. 1. In 4-quart saucepan, melt one tablespoon butter on medium-high. Stir in ground ginger. Add chopped butternut squash and water. Heat to boiling on high. Reduce heat to medium; cook 15 minutes or until squash is tender. 2. Stir in applesauce; cook 1 minute. Carefully puree in blender until smooth. Stir in one tablespoon butter, salt and pepper.

Don’t Let Mishaps Ruin Thanksgiving Dinner

means that the breast is overcooked and the dark meat isn’t done. If the dark meat isn’t done, remove the wings and breast meat from the rest of the turkey, in one piece, if possible. Cover the breast and wing portion with foil and set it aside. Put the drumsticks and thigh portion of the turkey back into the oven to continue cooking until done. You can re-assemble the whole turkey and garnish it, or just cut it into serving portions and arrange it on a platter

After almost 35 years of cooking, I’ve had my share of Thanksgiving Day disasters! Here are some secrets to saving STUFFING SAVERS If the stuffing/dressing is too wet, spread it out in a thin layer your sanity and your Thanksgiving dinner: on a sheet pan so that it will dry quickly. Place it back into the oven for 5 to 7 minutes. HOW TO DEFROST A TURKEY If it’s too dry, add more pan drippings or chicken broth to the You’ll need at least 24 to 48 hours (about five hours per pound) to thaw a frozen turkey in the refrigerator. If you need mixture. If you don’t have anymore drippings or broth, you can to do a quick thaw, place the wrapped, frozen turkey in your combine a chicken bouillon cube (if you have one), along with kitchen sink or a large container like an ice chest. Cover the a teaspoon of poultry seasoning, three tablespoons of butter and turkey with cold water. Drain and refill the water every half- 1 cup of water.

Stir to combine and then add Using this method, the turkey will thaw at the rate of about a it, a little at a time, to the dressing until it’s moist. half-hour for each pound. SOUPY MASHED POTATOES You can add unseasoned dry breadcrumbs to soupy mashed PREPARING THE BIRD FOR COOKING Remove the giblet package (neck, livers, heart and gizzards) potatoes to absorb any excess liquid. from inside the cavity of the bird AND check the neck cavity. Some manufacturers place the giblet package in the neck cavity GRAVY RESCUE TIPS If the gravy is lumpy, pour it through a strainer into a new and others place it inside the cavity closest to the legs. Most turkeys come with the legs already trussed (crossed and pan and bring it to a simmer, stirring gently. If it’s too thin, mix secured with a metal or plastic bracket). If you’re not going to a tablespoon of melted butter with a tablespoon of flour. Bring stuff your bird, there’s no need to truss the legs. Trussing an un- the gravy up to a boil and whisk in the butter mixture to thicken stuffed bird hinders the hot oven air from circulating inside and your gravy. If the gravy is too thick, add a little more chicken around the legs. This means that the dark meat will take longer broth, pan drippings or a little water and butter to thin it out. to cook and the breast meat will cook faster and probably dry BURNT OFFERINGS out before the legs ever get completely done. If the turkey begins to burn while it’s roasting, flip the bird over immediately and continue to cook it.
