The preparation of the Turkey starts with whether it is fresh or frozen. No one wants to wake up Thanksgiving morning to a half frozen turkey, so defrosting ahead of time is essential. According to the USDA you will need at least 1 day per 4 -5 pounds of turkey defrost in the refrigerator.
Here is a chart for thawing in the refrigerator:
4 to 12 pounds – 1-3 days
12 to 16 pounds – 3-4 days
16 to 20 pounds – 4-5 days
20 to 24 pounds – 5-6 days
There is another method you can use by submerging the wrapped turkey in cold water and changing the water out every 30 minutes.
4 to 12 pounds – 2 to 6 hours
12 to 16 pounds – 6 to 8 hours
16 to 20 pounds -8 to 10 hours
20 to 24 pounds – 10 to 12 hours
Now that you have a defrosted turkey it’s time to move onto the next steps , preparing, stuffing and flavor.

One of the biggest reasons we hear for changing insurance are lower rates and better policy value. Other popular reasons for changing insurance are Group Coverage for family or business, adding a driver or family member or another vehicle to a current insurance policy. There are many ways that Budget Bi Rite can help you lower the cost of your auto insurance and find the best policy for you. Switching from your old insurance company to a new insurance company is not hard to do.
For most auto insurance a notification in writing and specifying the date you want the policy to be canceled is all that is required as long as payment is kept up to date. Some insurance companies require the policy holder to send in a copy of the policy and then send a cancellation request form to be signed and returned. We will be able to time the beginning of the new policy to coincide with the cancellation of your prior coverage.
You may want to consider changing when your current policy is up for renewal. You should receive a notice for renewal 30 days for your current policy. Be sure you have your new insurance policy ready to start by the time the current policy terminates. We will be able to time the beginning of the new policy to coincide with the cancellation of your prior coverage.
Most insurance companies require policy holders to present proof of new coverage before they will cancel an active policy. Once your new policy is in place, you can have up to a 10 day grace period to cancel out your old policy. We recommend you do this the same day.
It is against the law to drive without insurance in the state of Florida, you must carry a minimum level of auto insurance . Do not take a chance of getting into an accident with no coverage.

Did you know that if you hit the person in front of you even if they slam on their brakes suddenly, more then likely you are going to be at fault for the accident for riding to close also called riding their bumper and Tailgating. This could be considered aggressive driving. What you should be doing instead is driving a least one car length per 10 miles an hour.
Here are some tips if your driving in frustration behind a slow driver.
Stay calm and stay behind them at a safe distance until you have an opportunity to turn off to a short cut you know or to pass them safely. Use your turn signal so they can see you are about to go around them. If at night, use your turn signal and click on your high beams a couple of times so you get their attention and then proceed with caution.
Here are some tips to avoid getting rear ended.
Make sure your brake lights are working correctly. If your vehicle is not up to par, you may be charged if you are in an accident when someone has run into you.
Check your rear view mirrors to see what is going on behind you. If you have someone riding your back bumper, pull off the road and let them pass.
Use your turn signals well in advance of lane changes and turning onto side streets.
Stay within the speed limit, going to slow can be just as dangerous as driving too fast and yes you can also get a ticket for driving too slow.
