sauce. They are only grown in five American states, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon, and Washington. If you were to combine all the cranberry bogs in North America, the area would add up to only about 47 square miles.

• There are only three fruits that are entirely native to North America – the blueberry, the Concord grape, and the cranberry. A 1680 letter from a colonist to his brother in England was one of the earliest mentions of cranberries. Early Native Americans, who called the fruit “sassamanesh” or “ibimi,” concocted “pemmican” by crushing cranberries and mixing them with dried deer meat. They also used the berries in poultices in order to draw poison from arrow wounds. The bright red juice lent itself nicely to use as a dye for blankets and clothing. European settlers called the berry a “crane berry” because the plant’s drooping flower resembled the head and bill of a crane.

• The only official record of the first Thanksgiving menu comes from the writings of Colony governor William Bradford, who listed “five deer, a large number of turkeys and waterfowl, cod, and bass; plus the harvest, which consisted of wheat, corn, barley, and perhaps a few peas.” We’ve added our assumptions of assorted nuts, squashes, and berries to the list.

• Antarctica is the only continent where pumpkins can’t be grown.

• While the official date for Thanksgiving in the United States is the fourth Thursday of November, Canadians celebrate their holiday on the second Monday in October. It began in 1872 as a day of gratitude for the Prince of Wales’ recovery from a life-threatening illness.

• Good and good for you! The tiny cranberry is rich in antioxidants, and may provide important defense against Alzheimer’s Disease. • When the Mayflower sailed into what is now Provincetown Harbor on November 11, 1620, it brought the ancestors of many notable Americans, including several presidents. Both George H.W. Bush and his son can trace their lineage back to the Mayflower, as can the senior Bush’s VicePresident Dan Quayle and presidential wife and mother Barbara Bush. Film icons Orson Welles and Marilyn Monroe share the same ancestor, passenger John Alden, while notables Franklin Roosevelt, U.S. Grant, Sarah Palin, and actor Richard Gere are members of the same family tree.

November 19 - November 25, 2009

by David Uffington Classics, Comfort Rule Holiday Shopping Stores have to decide far in advance what items they’ll push for the holidays. Given the economy and the belt tightening that shoppers have been doing all year, retailers aren’t going to take many chances with the holiday merchandise they’ll offer. They already know that consumer wallets will be closed more than they’re open, so they need to cash in on what buyers appear to want. This year think “traditional” and “comfort.” Expect few fad items to grace the shelves. Decorations will tend to be the classics we grew up with: regular green Christmas trees with decorations in standard colors of gold and red. Look for toys with good play value. Watch for hands-on, do-it-yourself items like crafts, kits and building sets. Look for kitchen items that make it easier to cook (and eat) at home. Keep an eye out for warm comforters (because the thermostat is notched down a bit more this year) and one-person size quilts (so you’ll stay warm watching television because you’re not going out to movies as often). You’ll have luck finding electronics at good prices. Again, consumers are staying home more, and retailers want to cash in on the desire for at-home entertainment. They’re hoping buyers will spring for computers that have Windows 7 and maybe even modestly priced big-screen televisions. Look for accessories to update an existing wardrobe. (If you buy clothing, look for items that will last through many seasons. The hot color this year is purple. Can you live with that for three years?) Certain brand-name jeans likely will be on sale -- a back-to-basics move. Before you shop, plan your spending. Stick to cash where possible (or at least have a plan to pay off credit cards within three months.) Decide on must-have gifts, but leave yourself some leeway for surprise bargains that you discover. Compare pricing between stores and online companies. Many online chains will have coupon codes for discounts if you buy online, but most will have quick expiration dates. Shop discount stores where you can, but beware the quality of the merchandise. Look for new items in charity shops. Hint: After your first day of holiday shopping, review your purchases and ask yourself if you really need to go out and buy more.

D.B. COOPER

“What ever happened to D.B. Cooper?” has been a mystery for nearly 38 years. Tidbits looks at the events surrounding the disappearance of this unknown character. • On the day before Thanksgiving in 1971, a passenger registered as Dan Cooper, having paid $18.52 for a ticket, boarded Northwest Airlines flight 305 in Portland, Oregon, along with 36 others, bound for Seattle. (A press communication later mislabeled the man as “D. B. Cooper.”) Dressed in a dark suit and black raincoat, his white-collared shirt sported a black necktie and a mother-of-pearl stick pin. Black sunglasses covered his eyes. Shortly into the flight, Cooper passed a note to the flight attendant, advising her that his briefcase contained a bomb. Thinking he was giving her his phone number, she stuck the unopened note into her pocket. Her indifference caused Cooper to speak to her, “Miss, you’d better look at that note. I have a bomb.” • D.B. Cooper’s hijack note listed his demand for $200,000 in unmarked $20 bills and four parachutes – two main back chutes and two chest chutes. He received his cash and parachutes when the plane landed in Seattle, where he set the passengers free and commanded the pilot to fly him to Mexico, flying “low and slow” and leaving the back door unlocked.

• Five Air Force fighter planes tailed the jet, but not a soul witnessed Cooper’s jump into the rainy night somewhere between Seattle and Reno, Nevada, presumably over the state of Washington. And D. B. Cooper has never been seen again. Seven years later, a placard from the plane’s rear stairway was discovered in the area. This signboard contained instructions on how the lower the rear stairs of the 727 jet.
