For many activity professionals and therapeutic recreation specialists, time is of the essence. We face many demands and wear many hats. We may not have time to do our own personal errands, let alone have time to attend courses for continuing education hours. Some activity professionals live in more remote areas in which they are hours away from the nearest conference. I’ve recently stumbled upon a website, (more like a lifesaver), that allows you to earn your CEU’s in the comfort of your own home,

If you could sit down and talk to one person, either living or deceas...

So, one very creative employee at Swanson made the brilliant decision to slice up the meat and repackage it with some tasty sides. It ended up becoming such a popular sell that Swanson created many more varieties of frozen meals. 

2) Female turkeys, which are called hens can only cackle. Only male turkeys, called Toms, can gobble. 

3) We have Abe Lincoln to be thankful for....He was the president whom issued a Thanksgiving Proclamation declaring the last Thursday in November as the national day of Thanksgiving. 

4) One Turkey Is Left Unscathed- Since 1947 the National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation is a ceremony at the White House  a few days before Thanksgiving in which a turkey is pardoned from being slaughtered by the President...
