You probably think of Thanksgiving dinner as a time to 'pig-out.' But there are actually lots of Thanksgiving foods that are GOOD for you!
1. TURKEY. It's one of the healthiest meats, and is almost totally fat-free. And, it's a great source of protein.
2. CRANBERRIES. They've got antioxidants and nutrients, so they can help prevent ulcers and infections. They're also full of vitamins.
3. SWEET POTATOES. They're rich in fiber and minerals, so they're better for you than regular mashed potatoes.
4. APPLE PIE. Apples have vitamins and fiber, and the spice ingredients usually have health benefits, too. Make it even healthier by preparing it with a wheat crust.
Of course...don't pile on the whipped cream!

As your kids get older, do you find it harder to find places to "hide" their holiday presents?
Check out this "Gift Alarm." It's got a motion detector that will detect small hands and fingers being nosy. If your kid goes snooping, you'll know, as the alarm will sound a loud siren and flashing red light.
After the holidays? Keep other hands off that last piece of cake you were saving for yourself!
Best part? Only 13 bucks!
I was proud to have been asked to host our live broadcast at Jones Beach, for the 13th annual Lustgarten Foundation Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk. With a turnout of over 7,500 people, I was able to meet many people from Long Island and the tri-state area, and learn their inspiring stories.
The walk raised over $1.1 MILLION, and every single dollar goes right to research, thanks to Cablevision's support!
Please allow me to introduce Alicia Holly-Doctor, from Jamaica, Queens. Click the player to listen to her very moving story about how pancreatic cancer has affected her family, and why she walks.

If you were listening on Saturday, you heard about all the fun we were having during our live broadcast at the Roslyn Savings Bank in Commack.
If you there, you KNOW all about it!
If you weren't there, please allow me to introduce...Carmen, the dancing banker!
She told us she'd dance, and true to her word...she did! Repeatedly, though we only captured it on video once.
Thank you to Carmen, Margaret, and the entire staff - congratulations on 10 years in the Commack community!

Okay...maybe not for $900. But if it was less...you wouldn't ride around with your kids on one?
Oh wait--it IS! It's marked-down to "only" $645!
All the cool moms & dads would.
Are your passwords impenetrable? Google just released the study on the most "hackable" passwords--see if any of your passwords fall on this list of the 10 worst things to use:
1. The names of your pets.
2. Important dates, like wedding anniversaries.
3. A family member's birthday.
4. Your child's name.
5. Another family member's name.
6. Your hometown.
7. Your favorite holiday.
8. Something related to your favorite sports team.
9. Your significant other's name.
10. The word PASSWORD (!)
The study also found two other things you ought not to do...
**HALF of people have told other people their passwords.
**3% leave their passwords written on a post-it note on their desk
So...do your "go-to" passwords fall into any of these 10 no-no's?
