Scandals, wars, and natural disasters… and here’s 28 British gymnasts stuffing themselves into ONE Mini Cooper… it’s a World Record…  see more below…

BRIAN SMITH is the same Brian Smith of  SMITH AND BARBER, THE MORNING SHOW on WPLR… his solo afternoon talk show on WICC 600AM, and was host and announcer for the Bridgeport Bluefish baseball and the Fairfield University Stags basketball games at Harbor Yard… and more recently… part of the team at  FM NEWS NEW YORK in New York City… you can email him at:

 

 

(Many people have been asking about the BrianSmithRadio Facebook page… and so have I… when the Facebook people actually answer me, and let me know what happened to it, I’m sure it will be back up.   Maybe their stock price would improve if their customer service improved…)

THE VOICE has been touring the country, checking out football venues of the NFL to see which stadiums have the best food in their team owner’s suites… the only stadium he had a problem with was Everbank Field in Jacksonville, where he wasn’t allowed to bring three cheerleaders from his traveling group into the buffet room… that mistake was corrected with a phone call to the owner of the team, and  THE VOICE  was then allowed full access with his entire group…  after a few apologies, they let THE VOICE watch the game in a reclining chair next to the Gatorade cooler on the field… (everyone at The Prognosticator Grill and Cafe saw that video a few weeks ago on ESPN)…  check out this week’s predictions and wisdom-filled insights, along with full coverage of upcoming NFL games, scores, and statistics.... go to the SPORTS PICKS PAGE, or, even easier, just click (here)…

HOW MANY BRITISH GYMNASTS CAN FIT IN A MINI COOPER?… well, for now the answer is 28… that’s the current world’s record… (all the doors, the trunk, and the windows must  be closed for five seconds to qualify as the Guinness World Record… let me know if you want to give it a try here in the United States…)

You can read more about the world’s record at the MSN Auto Blog, click (here)… and at AutoEvolution, click (here)… and at LeftLaneNews, click (here)…

HOSTESS BAKERIES HAVE LEFT THE SUPERMARKET… but the Twinkie and the Ding Dong may survive if another bakery buys their recipes and naming rights… and do you know the name of the biggest bakery business in the United States?… it is a Mexican bakery conglomerate called “Bimbo Bakeries“… pronounced “Beembo”… they own Entenmann’s, Arnold, Sara Lee, Friehofer’s and many other brands… here’s the Bimbo Bakery website… click (here)…  and yes… if Bimbo were to purchase the recipe and naming rights from Hostess (it’s completely possible)… we will see, on our shelves, the Bimbo Twinkie, and the Bimbo Ding Dong….

MAKE YOUR OWN TWINKIES… here’s a recipe from Yahoo’s Shine website, click (here)… here’s a recipe from TopSecretRecipes, click (here)… many recipes call for a marshmallow cream filling… if you want to try a more vanilla based filling (yes, thank you), here’s a recipe from AllRecipes, click (here)… and if you need a video to make your own Twinkie, here’s on on YouTube, click (here)…

Let me know how you make out in your Twinkie laboratory.

AND… HERE’S A QUICK TRAIN RIDE FROM FLORIDA TO NEW JERSEY…

The Juice Train is Tropicana’s delivery train…  for 40 years,  it has been bringing 500,000 gallons of orange juice to the north… this time lapse video shows the 48 hour trip in just 156 seconds…

If you are a train fan, a juice fan, or just want to know more, here’s link to the Juice Train entry in Wikipedia, click (here)…

…OK.. Thanksgiving and Black Friday are almost here… you have less than a week to buy your necessities before the roads are jammed and the stores are picked clean…  drive safe, eat safe, shop safe, and thanks for listening – Brian
