What are you thankful for?
Thanksgiving, even though it’s not celebrated across all countries of the world, is a day to acknowledge and celebrate those we love the most. It’s a time for introspection.
We want to hear from all Centre associates and business partners, this year. Share your storieshere. What are you all thankful for?
PS: We would like to alert that no harm should come to Arthur, the resident turkey, in this time of the year. He is property of the Centre and a valuable asset in the bio lab.
Air conditioning system shut down for inspection
We would like everyone’s attention regarding the current situation of the heating and air conditioning units across all floors in the South Tower.
As some might know, Mr. Raines’s breathing condition deteriorated last week, a condition that the infirmary has identified as severe pneumonia. We are undergoing testing and analysis on the Centre’s air conditioning facilities in order to identify if the source of his condition relies in the ducts.
We ask everyone to cooperate and be calm during this serious time. There is no cause for concern as no other patients have been identified. However, we do ask everyone to be alert and to be cautious about any symptoms you might have, such as fever, cough and abdominal pain.
The infirmary will also be accepting all employees who wish to obtain a flu shot. Mr. Cox will be heading up this detail, so please see him with any questions.
CATHERINE PARKER’S RECIPE
In honor of Thanksgiving, we are opening the recipe book, sharing a treasured meal from the Parker family table. We fervently hope you enjoy it too!
Little Miss P’s Favorite Chicken
It’s somewhere between roasted chicken and coq au vin.
- 3 large baking potatoes;
- 3 sweet potatoes;
- two large onions;
- one fryer hen;
- assorted spices
Preheat an oven to 350. Start with a nice fryer hen, about 3 lbs. Clean and then mist with olive oil and also rub with one tablespoon butter, (which doesn’t add many calories, but does add a lot of flavor).
Sprinkle with salt, pepper, paprika (lots), garlic, and a bit of sage. Place in a large, covered roasting pan.
Now chop the onions into quarters, and add to the roasting pan. Slice the potatoes (both kinds) into inch-thick sections and add to the pan as well. (Some peeled baby carrots are nice, too.)
Next, in a measuring cup add two ounces each of Worcestershire sauce, teriyaki, soy, and whatever wine you have around. Pour over the chicken and vegetables, then cover the pan.
Put in the oven for about two hours and go do whatever you want – you’re done cooking.
Two hours later, serve the chicken, which will be wonderfully tender and succulent, on a platter. Remove the vegetables and serve separately in a large serving bowl.
Total prep time is about 15 minutes, there’s not much to clean up, and as a nice side effect, the house smells wonderful when your family gets home.
Mag-Lev Train is a success
We are thrilled to announce the success of one of our most top-secret, high asset projects: the Mag-Lev Train.
News sources covering the success of the levitating magnetic train point out that it travels 500 km/h (311 mph), speeds of which would not be possible without the engineering team on SL-21.
Our clients in Japan and around the world are eternally grateful for the long hours, weekends, and vacations sacrificed. Fear not, though- Mr. Lyle, on behalf of the Triumvirate, has authorized a time-off award of 4 hours for each employee.
Try not to spend it all at one time!
