Willie Nelson Charged with Marijuana Possession



Willie Nelson was charged with marijuana possession after 6 ounces of the drug was found aboard his tour bus in Texas, according to The Associated Press.

Nelson's bus pulled into a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas around 9 a.m. Friday. A search was ordered after an officer smelled pot, and the additional marijuana was discovered during the search, a Border Patrol spokesman told the AP. Nelson was among three people arrested.

The 77-year-old country music star claimed the pot was his and was taken into custody, according to the El Paso Times. He was released the same day after posting $2,500 bond. A court date has yet to be set.

Willie Hugh Nelson (born April 30, 1933) is an American country singer-songwriter, author, poet, actor and activist. He reached his greatest fame during the outlaw country movement of the 1970s, and remains iconic, especially in American popular culture.

Best Black Friday Laptop Under $300


Black Friday is almost here and soon families will pour over the frontpage doorbuster deals from Walmart, Best Buy, Office Depot, Staples and others looking for the best Black Friday Laptop deal under $300 for 2010.

To help you out we are looking at Notebooks in each price range to help you find the best Black Friday Laptop that fits your budget. This guide will show you all the notebooks available on Black Friday for $250 to $300 and let you know which one we think is the best.

Remember to look at our Black Friday Buying Guide – 10 Things to Look for When Buying your Black Friday Laptop or NetBook, before you head out for Black Friday 2010.

Black Friday Laptops under $300:

  • Lenovo G550 15.6″ @ Office Depot – $279
  • eMachines eME442-V133 15.6″ @ Best Buy – $279
  • HP G62 15.6″ @ Walmart – $298
  • HP G56-141us 15.6” @ Staples – $299

After looking over all of these Black Friday deals on laptops and netbooks for 2010 we’ve picked the Lenovo G550 from Office Depot as the best Black Friday Laptop under $300.

The Lenovo G550 wins out because even the low end Lenovo laptops are known for a decent build quality and for $20 less than the competition you’re getting the  same thing. Essentially, in this price range, you could drop down to the Best Black Friday Laptop under $250 to get a similar Black Friday computer.

If you you can manage to spend the extra $50 jump up to the Black Friday Laptops under $400 category which contains the HP G62-340US dual core notebook for $329 from Office Depot.

In this category there isn’t much to separate the winners from the losers, but the value for the HP G56-141us isn’t enough to make it a good buy. Again, you’re better off bumping up to $329 for a dual core machine.

Best Turkey Soup Recipes


What's one to do with all that leftover turkey? You could settle for turkey sandwiches smothered in stuffing and cranberry sauce, or you could make a healthier choice and toss it into a tasty broth for a healthy serving of turkey soup! Got left over celery and carrots? You can toss that stuff in there, too. A filling warm stew, it's the perfect way to wind down the Thanksgiving holiday and take a breather from all that heavy eating.



Ingredients

2 quarts chicken broth
1 turkey carcass, all meat removed
1 onion, halved, plus 1 onion, minced
1 carrot, halved lengthwise, plus 1 carrot, minced
1 whole stalk celery, plus 1 more stalk, minced
2 bay leaves
3 cups dark turkey meat
2 garlic cloves, smashed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 carrot, minced
1 stalk celery, minced
3 cups leftover cooked Thanksgiving side vegetables (Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, green beans)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage leaves

Directions

  1. Put chicken broth, turkey, onion halves, carrot halves, 1 celery stalk, and 1 bay leaf in a large stock pot. Bring to a boil, then simmer about 1 1/2 hours. Finely dice the remaining onion, carrot and celery and reserve.
  2. Dice the turkey meat. Make sure meat pieces are no larger than the size of a soup spoon. (If preparing soup the next day, be sure to store leftover turkey meat in an airtight container before placing it in the refrigerator, top with 1 or 2 ladles full of broth to keep meat moist.)
  3. Before straining broth, remove large bones and carcass with tongs. Strain the broth through a sieve, covered with wet cheese cloth. Discard the solids. Transfer broth to a bowl set in a bath of ice water, which will cool the broth quickly and help keep it fresher longer. This can be done the night before and stored in the refrigerator until the next day.
  4. In a large soup pot, heat garlic cloves in the olive oil. Allow to brown slightly and add minced carrots, celery, and onion. Sweat over medium-low heat until softened, about 7 or 8 minutes.
  5. Dice the leftover vegetables (here Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, and green beans). Add the chopped sage to the soup pot along with the turkey broth and the remaining bay leaf. Bring to a simmer. When simmering, add Brussels sprouts, green beans and diced turkey meat to the soup. Bring it back up to a simmer. Finally, add the sweet potatoes to the center, and gently push them down. Turn the heat off and cover. Allow to sit and steam for 5 to 7 minutes.
  6. Let simmer for 5 more minutes and serve.
