Saturday night (1/5) was an exciting day for drivers.
Highway 35 had an 18 wheeler accident where boxes of chicken tenders were spilled all over the highway. With the cargo unloaded across the lanes, it appears many motorists stopped to pick up some boxes before leaving. The ones who got the first picks probably got the only semi-safe chicken.
It got so bad with people stopping to pick up the chicken that the local police had to put out a public service announcement. They warned people that it was illegal to impede traffic and that anybody caught taking the chicken would face charges.
It appears that all chicken was removed from the highway roughly 72 hours after the accident. We will have to wait an see if there is a spike in hospital visits in this area in the next few days.

With the age of technology, we are constantly distracted with notifications from our phones. Burger King decided to capitalize on this phenomenon.
From now until Dec. 12th, if you have the Burger King app on your phone and approach within 600 ft. of any McDonald’s, you will receive a coupon for a 1¢ Whopper sandwich. This works similar to how apps like SnapChat handle GeoFilters. Every phone has location services that you must enable to use the app. Because you enabled location services, your phone gets put on a map.
This custom map has a cyber fence around certain locations that allow you to access features when you are within this fence. For SnapChat, it allows you to use custom filters for that region. With the Burger King app, they put fences around most McDonald’s instead. If you live in Alaska or Hawaii, this offer isn’t valid unfortunately. For only a penny, this deal is way too good to pass up.

Nothing better to start your work day than with a McCrappe, er McCafe.
When McDonald’s announced the addition of their touchscreen kiosks, younger people rejoiced, while the older generation complained about the technology. They improved the ordering process for McDonald’s drastically and could focus more on customer satisfaction instead of being behind the counter taking orders. All seemed like plus signs, but there was a hidden enemy.
Recently, the Metro published a story about their findings in McDonald’s. Researchers in London went to 8 separate McDonald’s and found a large amount of bacteria that resides on the touchscreen themselves. While there were some forms of bacteria that were found in some and not others, they all contained traces of fecal matter bacteria.
Dr. Matewele, microbiology researcher at London Metropolitan University, said, “Seeing Staphylococcus on these machines is worrying because it is so contagious”. Staphylococcus is a bacteria that can lead to blood poisoning and toxic shock syndrome. There are also some fears that is becoming resistant to antibiotics as well.

McDonald’s claims to clean these screens daily, but Matewele believes this is untrue or that they are not using strong enough cleaner.
The best thing one can do to counter these bacteria is to wash your hands after ordering your food on the kiosk.
Now that Thanksgiving is over and you’ve had your fill of pumpkin flavored foods, it’s time to get rid of that excess canned pumpkin you have. Why not turn them into treats for your furry friends and even maybe your non-furry friends? Here’s a recipe for some Dog Treats:
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Whisk together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff. Roll the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
Bake in preheated oven until hard, about 40 minutes.
