Book of the Week
This week’s DVD of the Week is ‘A Simple Favor’.
This week’s DVD is ‘A Simple Favor’. Enigmatic and alluring mother Emily (Blake Lively) ‘befriends’ mommy vlogger Stephanie (Anna Kendrick). She asks Stephanie to come by urgently, only for Stephanie to arrive finding Emily gone. She treats it like a missing person case, but people are acting like Emily was never there, and there are clues that she may not actually be gone. It’s a psychological ride driven by its two leads.

Cold Feet and a Triple-Dog-Dare: Myth Buster #3
As children we were always warned,”Don't lick anything metal during freezing weather”! The classic scene from A Christmas Story , where the character Flick is triple-dog-dared to lick a frozen poll, gives tribute to the myth that birds’ feet will also stick to the metal bird feeders and suet cages during below freezing weather. 

Fact : According to Steve White from the Wild Bird Depot in Gilford, birds feet and beaks are made of cartilage. Unlike our tongues, their feet don’t have blood vessels. Blood vessels contain moisture which can adhere and freeze to metal surfaces. They also have a scaly covering,  special veins and arteries to help keep their feet warm.  So birds don’t have to worry. But our mothers were right. Humans should never do a triple-dog-dare with freezing poles in the winter
