Q: What do teddy bears and turkeys have in common? A: Stuffing!

1. How tall can healthy American chestnut trees grow? 2. What is the protective cover over a chestnut called?

1. Where and when was the chestnut blight first discovered? 2. All of the American chestnut trees in New York City were dead by what year? 3. What law was passed as a consequence of the chestnut blight? 4. What does the law restrict? 5. What is the science of studying trees?

“Under the spreading chestnut tree The village smithy stands; The smith a mighty man is he With large and sinewy hands.� Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

American chestnuts were a great crop for many families in the early 1900s. In West Virginia, in 1911, one railroad station reported shipping 155,000 pounds (70,307 kg) of the nuts! Some large trees produced 10 or more bushels (352 l) of chestnuts, and there were reports of American chestnuts laying four-inches deep on the forest floor. After the trees started dying, trees were brought in from Europe and Asia to satisfy chestnut lovers.

the food? You'll need to check the ingredients list.

Serving size: Be realistic. If a cup of a dessert, are you going to stop at that half cup? On the other hand, if the food is a main dish, will you family be satisfied with half-cup servings?

A Chilean flamingo named “Pink Floyd” wintered at the Great Salt Lake in Utah after escaping from Tracy Aviary in Salt Lake City in 1987. He (genserving size is a half der uncertain) continued to live in the wild, surviving on brine shrimp. Floyd was last seen in 2005 in Idaho.

For Real Bargains, Read Food Labels Not only do consumers need to juggle brands and stores to find the best bargains on food, but determining what's in the food is a minefield as well. In theory, the label and packaging will disclose this information, but they often need some translation. Low sodium: "Low" is subjective. Check the percentage of daily value on the label. It's not low if one serving can equal more than half your daily allotment of sodium. Light: While generally meant to indicate fewer calories, it's not true across the board. Compare two cans of soup, the regular and the "light"

Made with real fruit: How much fruit is actually in the food? If it's listed after the third item on the ingredients list, you're not getting much.

Organic: "Certified organic" food is regulated and promises to be grown on land that was pesticide free for the previous three years. With meat, the animals would have been fed a special diet without antibiotics or hormones. "Made with organic ingredients" isn't the same as wholly organic. Whole grains: The health benefit depends on how much is actually present. See where it falls in the ingredients lineup. If it's third or fourth on the list, you're not getting much. Note: Enriched bleached flour is white flour with vitamins added. If "enriched" bread is dark, look for coloring that's been added to make it appear to be made of whole grains.

Know what you're spending your money on so you can get the most nutrition for your dollar. If you're not in the habit of reading labels, start by checking at least five things on every label before the food goes into your cart. Choose what those five things will be -- perhaps sodium, protein, sugars, fats and the first three ingredients. It's a start.
