Thanksgiving is less than a week away and for those stressing about how to cook a turkey, the Butterball Turkey Talk Line is ready to help you do it. The talk line’s creator, Jean Schnell, says they have 48 professional home economists who are educated and well equipped to help people with their turkey needs. The line has been around since the 1980s and the most common question they get is how long does it take to defrost a turkey, which the professionals say is 24-hours for every five-pounds and to thaw it in the fridge. People who have more questions regarding turkeys are urged to call 1-800-288-8372.

Officials at an Ontario library say a book was just returned that is believed to be over 100 years past due. A copy of Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens was the book dropped into the book return.
