Found a couple of great OS X applications worth mentioning over at What Do I Know — SnowSaver is a nice OpenGL screensaver, and Still Life lets you emulate Ken Burns by making little QuickTime movies of your digital photos. Zooming, fading, etc. I’ve only played with Still Life for 5 minutes, but it looks to be really easy to use.Alka-Seltzer cold medicine works pretty well.

I did something insane yesterday. It’s Thanksgiving morning, so I got up at 6am, drove 1 hour to Andover, MA and ran a 5K race in 20 degree weather. It took me about 40 minutes. Not very good. But I didn’t really train, and admittedly did this for my wife who runs one of these things every other weekend it seems.Anyhow, after that we had a great Thanksgiving at my Brother and Sister-in-law’s. Hours and hours of preparations, 10 minutes of eating, hours and hours of clean-up. You gotta love Thanksgiving. Still probably my favorite holiday though.

I just watched this on a cooking show: deep fried turkey. Someone down south must have invented this. Actually, I bet it’s delicious… and healthy. Right.
“… an enterprising cook decided to take a boned chicken, a boned duck and a boned turkey, stuff them one inside the other like Russian dolls, and roast them. He called his masterpiece turducken.”
Mmm, just in time for Thanksgiving.

Am I correct that yogurt should not taste salty? I thought so.Transmit 2 update: Several have written in, correcting me — Transmit 2 does work with BBEdit, just right (or control) click on a file. That’ll make me take a second look at it for sure. Thank you.
