George Clooney Worried He Would Never See Kids Again After Accident

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

George Clooney recently opened up about his personal life in an interview with GQ. He was chosen as the 2020 Icon of the Year and gracefully accepted the honor. In his Zoom interview, one of his kids even adorably interrupted the video, which is very on-brand for 2020. George Clooney worried that he would never see his kids again after his motorbike accident.

George talked about the event that almost paralyzed him. In 2018 he was on his way to the set of the Hulu World War II dark comedy series Catch-22 when he got into that accident. Afterwards he was consumed with the fear he wouldn’t see his and wife Amal’s then one-year-old twins, Alexander and Ella, again.

He said, “I launched. I go head over heels. But I landed on my hands and knees. If you did it 100 times, maybe once you land on your hands and knees, and any other version you land, you’re toast. It knocked me out of my shoes. When I hit the ground, my mouth — I thought all my teeth were broken out. But it was glass from the windshield.”

Luckily, George ended up being fine, but he has since quit riding motorbikes. He said it was the only thing to get him to quit after riding them for 40 years — not to mention his wife begging him to give them up after the accident. In addition, his friend, Grant Heslov, who was also in the accident with him, said he was quitting. That was the final straw for George.

During the interview, adorable three-year-old Alexander interrupted things with chocolate on his face. He also showed off his Italian skills, proving himself truly fluent at such a young age. In conclusion, watch part of the interview below:

WKRP’s ‘Turkeys Away’ Episode Celebrates Another Anniversary This Year

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Cincinnati residents readily know and love WKRP in Cincinnati. The regional sitcom pulls back the curtain on an Ohio-based radio station. Its fame exponentially expanded thanks to its Thanksgiving episode, “Turkeys Away.” 2020 marks the 42nd year since its monumental debut.

WKRP in Cincinnati blends timely references with outrageous situations while tapping into Thanksgiving holiday fondness. All this acts as the recipe to create not just a regional favorite but a national classic. Learn more about the episode and celebrate another anniversary here.

Setting the foundations for a classic

Show creator Hugh Wilson had his work cut out for him when creating WKRP in Cincinnati, even before ‘Turkeys Away.” When he settled on the idea of depicting a struggling radio station looking for redemption, Wilson then needed a name. WKRP came about because all his other call signals already belonged to established stations. MeTV reports from an interview that Wilson went with WKRP because one could read it as “crap.” Finally, he tried different locations and when WKRP in Detroit didn’t resonate, he fell in love with the sound of Cincinnati.

Seven episodes into season one, WKRP in Cincinnati brought viewers “Turkeys Away.” As the Cincinnati branch of USA Today notes, it came on an already momentous day. Back in 1938, Orsen Wells’ radio play “War of the Worlds” gave listeners a chilling look at an alien invasion. Jump ahead forty years and we have “Turkeys Away,” featuring live turkeys descending from a helicopter upon a Cincinnati mall.

Look out, Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds. There’s another bird-based horror scenario, and this one involves turkeys. Flightless as they are, WKRP decided to drop them from a helicopter over a Cincinnati mall for shoppers…much to the shoppers’ horror. Reporter Les Nessman (played by Richard Sanders) filled in the visuals with some iconic lines that endure to this day.

“Something just came out of the back of the helicopter. It’s a dark object. Perhaps a skydiver. A second. A third … no parachute yet. … Oh my God, they’re turkeys!” he recounted. But general manager Arthur Carlson swore, “As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.”

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been together for 38 years and are one of Hollywood’s cutest couples. They recently reunited on-screen to play Santa and Mrs. Clause in the Netflix sequel The Christmas Chronicles 2. When doing press interviews for the film, they said that filming together again felt like a honeymoon.

Goldie said, “What was fun about working with him again was that we were having a great time. I still think he’s one of the great actors, so for me to work with Kurt was really awesome. He gives you the ball back, he’s funny, he knows what he’s doing… and he really just loves what he does. It’s just really really fun.”

Retailers Put Their Best Deals Online To Curb Black Friday Crowds

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Black Friday boasts a tradition steeped in massive crowds and hasty rushes to a store for the best deals. But the demand for social distancing made such practices risky. But shoppers won’t have to worry about missing major deals because many retailers are putting their best discounts online across multiple days.

All this allows people to stay home, enables stores to enjoy prolonged (safe) business, and encourages safety. Major participating retailers include Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, and more. Others also utilize different strategies by not carrying high-demand products in-store at all. Learn more about what to expect for Black Friday 2020 here.

Enjoy Black Friday deals and discounts without the crowd

“With COVID, this really changed everything,” said NPD Group chief retail analyst Marshal Cohen. “Now, nobody even wants to be standing next to somebody, let alone fighting a crowd to get something.” As a result, CNBC further noted, no one’s even boasting about “doorbusters.” Instead, all the best Black Friday deals for 2020 are actually online. So, there’s no huge benefit to risking a trip to the stores this Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Furthermore, retailers like Home Depot and Walmart offer extended deals. It’s a trend that’s gained popularity over the years; Black Friday and even Cyber Monday aren’t just one day anymore. Or even one weekend. They’re an extended period of time with major deals and offers for consumers to shop through. From a business strategy perspective, this gives retailers a longer chance to enjoy heightened business. From a pandemic perspective, many outlets are using this approach to get business and encourage safety. If shoppers do go inside stores like Home Depot, they’ll see major advertised gifts spread further apart in their displays to minimize crowding.

Rethinking holiday shopping

2020’s been a year for the history books and a prolonged story to tell future generations. It’s seen stalls in entertainment while also boasting breakthroughs in creativity. For friends, family members, and gamers wanting to secure a PlayStation 5, don’t look on any store shelves. Walmart won’t stock any in their physical stores; consumers must instead purchase them online. But if they were looking to catch the best deal, they have more time to do it because extending Black Friday deals gives people the chance for staggered shopping.

Staggered shopping does many things: it extends deals and business opportunities, but it also helps employees manage curbside pickup. Many stores turned to curbside pickup in the earlier days of the pandemic. Best Buy joined the trend by keeping new game consoles as online-exclusive. It and other big chains also announced their online Black Friday discounts on Sunday, November 22, when they usually go live on Thanksgiving Day. Walmart already launched their Black Friday special into three events, with the first one starting all the way back on November 4 – again, online. So, when looking for item availability and discounted pricing, check online because that might just have the best deal out there.

This 350-Year-Old Recipe For Pumpion Pie Is Coming Back Around For Thanksgiving

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

You’ve heard of a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dessert, but what about a Pumpion pie? It combines two incredible flavors, pumpkin and apples, for a very nostalgic dessert. The recipe is actually 350 years old and this recipe comes from a cookbook from the 1670s.

Max Miller combined his love of history and cooking in videos that share vintage recipes. For Thanksgiving, he decided to make a Pumpion pie and share the recipe with his followers. The original recipe is quite odd so Max decided to translate it into a modern recipe that anyone can make.

This recipe takes about 60 minutes with the prep times being about 40 minutes. You can buy your own crust to make things a little easier. According to TODAY, you’ll need a 1 (9-inch) pie crust, 1 sugar or pie pumpkin, 2 sharp apples (such as Granny Smith), lard or vegetable oil for frying (optional), 6 tablespoons salted butter (divided), 2 handfuls fresh herbs (such as rosemary, parsley, and thyme), 3 eggs (beaten), 1/3 cup raisins, 1/3 cup currants, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup sherry or sack (sack is a type of wine).

Set the oven to 425 degrees F. Have your crust ready on the side. If you have a pie pumpkin, you will have to peel it, remove the stem and seeds, and cut it into quarters. Slice the pieces into thin slices and then do the same with apples. Then put about two tablespoons of butter into a frying pan on medium heat.

In another bowl, mix the herbs into the beaten eggs and dip the pumpkin slices in the mixture. Then fry the pieces in the frying pan until the pumpkin softens, for about 10 minutes. Next, line the bottom of your crust with the apples.

Scroll through the photos to see visuals of making the pie…

When your pumpkin slices are cooked, put them in a bowl with two tablespoons of butter, raisins, currants, sugar, and sherry. Mix it and pour over the apples. Bake it for 20 minutes. Then reduce the heat to 375 degrees F and cook for about 40-50 minutes until the pie is bubbling. Remove from heat once done and add two tablespoons of butter on top.

It sounds pretty delicious and unique! Will you try it for Thanksgiving this year? Learn more about the history of the Pumpion pie below:
