Tip of the Day

Fall leaves are a great tool to help you protect your more delicate garden plants. Pile up leaves around the base of the plant to insulate the roots over the winter.

 

Happy Wednesday! It’s another Hump Day which means another camel fact. Just like people in the U.S. enjoy horse racing, in many countries they enjoy races too—except with camels. Throughout the Middle East, as well as North Africa, Western Asia, and Australia, camel races are quite popular.

It’s pretty tough to segue from camel racing, so let’s just dig right into today’s goodies! If you’re looking for a clever (and delicious) way to prepare your turkey this year, you should really give bacon and beer a shot. Speaking of holiday food prep, now’s a great time to review how to not food poison your entire family this Thanksgiving.

And if staring at screens lately trying to get all your work and holiday shopping done, we have two ways to help. First, check out this trick to avoid excess screen use damaging your eyes. Second, make holiday shopping easier with our Holiday 2021 Gift Guide. We pick out the fun stuff (and do our best to make sure it’s in stock!) so you don’t have to work so hard. And with Black Friday right around the corner a lot of our favorite picks are on sale—like this oft-recommended Anova Sous Vide Cooker. We’d pay full price for it but you can pick it up today for 30% off.

Water cooler trivia? Even on camel fact day, we have some. Today is a busy birthday as far as the entertainment industry goes. Famed director Martin Scorsese (1942), Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels (1944), iconic drag queen RuPaul (1960), and actress Rachel McAdams (1978) were all born on this day.
