SWANS CAN BE DANGEROUS

This time of the year, Mother Nature provides our LOE swans

with some common sense. It is mating, nesting, then egg-laying

season and they feel the need to protect their territory against

predators including humans, dogs and other waterfowl. Most

of the swans in our neighborhood are not old enough to mate

but some will go through the motions of even building a nest.

The pairs of swans that are old enough to produce young

(cygnets) are normally gentle and can be fed while posing

no threat. However, our males (cobs) will become aggressive

and territorial in trying to protect their mate and their nest.

This is usually temporary until mating season is over. If you

are walking past a lake and a swan swims to your side and

follows you, BEWARE! If you see a swan with his neck back and

feathers up such as the one in the picture, please stay away,

do not attempt to feed him and walk on the other side of the

street as he is in ATTACK position. Please warn your nannies

and sitters not to stroll babies around the swans. We must try

to remember that the swans are protecting their territory and

readying it for their young. To antagonize, tease, throw objects

at or injure the swans is a felony and we need to be as cautious

of them as they are to us. Thank you for your cooperation.

TOP 7 THANKSGIVING

TRAVEL TIPS AND TRICKS

1. AVOID TRAVELLING THE DAY BEFORE AND

AFTER THANKSGIVING

You may have heard that the day before and after Thanksgiving

are among the busiest travel days of the year, but did you know

that Thanksgiving Day itself is only a bit busier than average?

Thread the needle by flying in just in time for pre-dinner drinks,

and you’ll likely dodge the worst of Thanksgiving travel.

2. BOOK AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE

Though this is true any time of year, booking your Thanksgiving

travel as early as possible will save you headaches in terms of

options, prices and agony. We’re pretty sure the film Planes,

Trains and Automobiles was inspired by some procrastinator who

decided to wing it while heading home for Thanksgiving.

3. SNACKS

No matter your mode of transport, you’re probably going to get

peckish during your journey. Forget the $12 airport tuna melt and

the dubious convenience store burrito, and pack some energy

bars instead.

4. YOU DON’T NEED THAT

You’d be surprised at how few items you need for a long weekend

away, particularly if you’re going to see your parents who probably

have three of everything anyway. Packing light will make your

journey easier.

5. ALL RESERVATIONS

In many cases, booking your travel as a package (flight, car rental,

hotel) through an all-purpose booking website will save you

money.

6. DON’T GO HOME

You know where there isn’t a Thanksgiving travel rush? Every

other country in the world. Flights to Mexico, Central America

and the Caribbean are comparable to domestic flights in terms of

flight time. Or treat yourself to a continental hop.

7. JUST BE COOL, MAN

We just checked the whole internet and confirmed that losing

your temper with a customer service agent, no matter what injustice

you may have suffered, hasn’t ended well for anyone in the

entire history of humankind.

5 cups bread cubes

4 eggs

1 1/2 cups milk

1/4 cup white sugar, divided

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon margarine,

softened

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Lightly butter an 8x8 inch baking pan. Line bottom of

pan with bread cubes. In a large bowl, beat together

eggs, milk, 2 tablespoons sugar, salt and vanilla. Pour

egg mixture over bread. Dot with margarine; let stand

for 10 minutes. -- Combine remaining 2 tablespoons

Quinoa Stuffed Butternut Squash

with Cranberries & Kale

2 medium butternut squash about 2 1/2 pounds each

2 teaspoons olive oil divided

3/4 cup quinoa

1 1/2 cups low sodium vegetable broth or chicken broth

1 bunch kale stems removed and chopped

(about 6 lightly packed cups)

2 cloves garlic minced

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt plus additional for roasting squash

1/2 teaspoon black pepper plus additional for roasting squash

1 can low sodium chickpeas (15 ounces), rinsed and drained

Zest of 1 orange plus 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice

1/3 cup reduced sugar dried cranberries

Grated Parmesan cheese or crumbled feta cheese, optional

Place a rack in the center of your oven and preheat

the oven to 425 degrees F. Halve the butternut

squash, scoop out the seeds, then arrange the halves

on a baking tray, cut sides up. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon

olive oil and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Bake

45-55 minutes, just until the squash is fork tender.

Remove from the oven and let cool. Reduce the oven

temperature to 375 degrees.

While the squash is baking, place the broth in a small

saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the quinoa, return

to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover, and let simmer

for 12 minutes, until most of the broth is absorbed.

Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 15

minutes. Fluff with a fork, then set aside.

In a large skillet, heat the remaining 1 teaspoon olive

over medium. Add the kale and cook until wilted,

about 4 minutes, then reduce the heat to medium

low. Add the garlic, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and

1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Cook 30 additional seconds,

until is fragrant. Stir in the chickpeas, orange

zest, orange juice, cooked quinoa, and cranberries.

Once the squash is cool enough to handle, scoop out

the flesh, leaving a 1/2-inch-thick border around

the sides and a 3/4-inch border along the bottom.

Reserve the flesh for another use (or if you don’t

mind a super duper stuffed squash, mix it in with the

rest of the filling). Stuff the kale quinoa filling into

the squash halves, then return the squash to the

oven. Bake at 375 degrees until hot, about 10 additional

minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and serve warm.

9 Cyber Safety

Tips for Black

Friday & Cyber

Monday

More and more people are shopping online, avoiding lines, crowds

and interactions with others, especially in this time of COVID.

This has created the perfect environment for criminals to launch

scams, phishing attacks, and other malicious activities.

The amount of money spent over this cyber weekend is escalating

year after year, and due to the COVID pandemic, it continues to

escalate to staggering numbers. Cybercriminals follow the money,

and this weekend of crazed spending provides them with the

perfect opportunity to scam a large number of people. According

to Barclays, nearly a quarter of 18-34-year-olds have fallen for

a Black Friday scam in the past five years and shoppers lose on

average $910 after falling victim to such frauds.

With attacks becoming more sophisticated, shoppers need to be

extra cautious when looking for the latest bargains online.

Below are 10 Cyber Safety tips to keep you safe online this Black

Friday and Cyber Monday:

1. Watch Out for Fake Websites

This is one of the most popular ways criminals will try to trick

shoppers into falling for their Black Friday and Cyber Monday

scams. The fraudsters will clone websites to dupe consumers into

thinking they are shopping on a legitimate site. The website may

appear almost identical to the real site; however, subtle changes

can indicate that all is not as it seems.

2. Only Use Secure Sites

A web address that ends .com or .co may be changed to a .org,

images may be pixilated, functions on the site may not work

properly and the content will often be sub-standard. It’s always

worth double- checking the address of a site to confirm its

8

authenticity. Before entering any information into a website, you

should always check that the site is safe and secure. The first step

is to hover your mouse over the URL and check the validity of the

web address. You should look for a padlock symbol in the address

bar and check that the URL begins with a ‘https://’ or ‘shttp://’. The

‘S’ indicates the web address has been encrypted and secured

with an SSL certificate. Without HTTPS, any data passed on the

site is insecure and could be intercepted by criminal third parties.

However, this system is not totally foolproof. Within the last year,

there has been a significant increase in the number of phishing

sites using SSL certificates. Users are advised to be extra cautious

and look for further evidence that the site is secure. You should

check for a website privacy policy, use a website safety check tool

such as Google Safe Browsing, or do a WHOIS lookup to see who

owns the website.

3. Use a Credit Card for Shopping Online

When possible, it’s always best to use a credit card when shopping

online as it offers additional protection over other forms of payment.

If a fraudulent purchase is made on your credit card, there’s a good

chance your bank will reimburse you straight away. However, if a

criminal steals your debit card details, they can clear out your

personal account and it can be more difficult to reclaim the money.

4. Beware of Phishing Emails

Phishing is one of the most popular ways for criminals to steal

your personal information and there is always a massive increase

in these types of scams on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

The speed, convenience and high return on investment makes

phishing one of the easiest ways for cybercriminals to steal your

personal data without you even knowing.

5. Avoid Deals That Are Too

Good to Be True

As Cyber Monday approaches, be wary of any

emails offering cash prizes or last-minute deals.

These emails are designed to trick shoppers into

clicking on a link which may appear to come from

a well-known retailer. Trust your gut if you think

there’s something not right about the email and

delete it immediately.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday feature lots of

legitimate deals offered by trusted and reputable

retailers. However, cybercriminals know we’ll be

scouring the web for the cheapest deals and they take

advantage of this by slipping in lots of fake offers.

Be wary of any emails, pop-ups, or posts on

social media promising rock bottom prices.

Clicking on the link could bring you straight to

a phishing site or you may end up downloading

malware onto your device. It can be hard to

distinguish between a real bargain and a fake

so it’s best to do your research to find out if the

site is credible or go directly to a brand’s website

to determine if the deal is real. It’s always worth

remembering that if an offer seems too good to

be true, it usually is!

6. Use Strong Passwords

You’ll have heard it a million times, but creating a

strong password really is one of the easiest ways

you can protect yourself from being hacked online.

With so many passwords to remember, it can be

tempting to use the same password for multiple

accounts, however, this puts you at great risk of

having your data stolen. If hackers can work out

just one of your passwords, whether it’s a Facebook

account or online banking details, they can

potentially access every single account you have.

It’s always best to use a unique username and password for separate online accounts

so that in the unfortunate event of being phished, the attackers won’t have access

to your other online accounts. A great way to create a longer and more complex

password is to use a passphrase. A passphrase is a sentence like string of words that

is memorable to you but difficult for anyone else to crack. The first letter of each word

will form the basis of your password and letters can be substituted with numbers and

symbols to make it even more secure.

7. Watch Out for Social Media Scams

Social media scams are rife on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The crooks know

that people are going online to specifically look for deals, so they make it as easy

as they can for shoppers to fall for their online scams. Facebook and Twitter

tend to be the favoured choice for these malicious posts and criminals will ask

shoppers to like and share their posts, so they’re boosted to the top of news feeds

and reach a wider audience. Users tend to be more trusting on social media and

it’s often more difficult to determine if a link is malicious than it would be on a

more traditional platform.

8. Avoid Public Wi-Fi When Shopping

Using public Wi-Fi to search for the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals could

open you up to a range of security risks. Public Wi-Fi requires no authentication to

establish a network connection, allowing fraudsters direct access to any unsecured

devices on the same open network. This enables hackers to steal valuable information

such as login passwords, credit card info and other personal and financial details.

9. Monitor Bank Statements for Fraudulent Activity

Before going online to shop about for the hottest deals, you should make sure

that all your security software is up to date. This will prevent cybercriminals from

gaining access to your computer through vulnerabilities in older and outdated

systems. The installation of anti-virus software will also help detect threats on

your computer and block unauthorised users from gaining access.

It’s always worth keeping a close eye on bank statements to make sure there

are no unusual transactions on your account. Criminals know that during Black

Friday and Cyber Monday there will be lots of online activity, so they hope that any

unusual debits from your account will go undetected. Typically, the crooks will

make a few initial debits for smaller amounts then go in for a larger amount which

could clean out your bank account.
