Stephen Twining from Twinings of London Returns to Epcot this Thanksgiving Weekend

Sip, sip, hooray! Stephen Twining from Twinings of London will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort this Thanksgiving weekend, November 21-24. As a tenth-generation member of the famous tea family, Stephen joined Twinings in 1985 and now serves as Director of Corporate Relations for Twinings of London. As a special treat for Disney Parks guests, Stephen will be available to meet with tea enthusiasts and sign merchandise at The Tea Caddy shop at the United Kingdom Pavilion in Epcot. Stop by to hand-pick your own collection of Twinings Tea and meet and greet with Stephen Twining!

At The Tea Caddy, guests can purchase a wooden, single-slot Twinings tea box to fill with ten individual tea bags. Imagine creating your very own, personalized “tea-caddy,” and having it autographed by Stephen Twining!

Teas from the Walt Disney World exclusive Discovery Collection

The shop also carries twelve blends from the Walt Disney World exclusive Discovery Collection. You can choose among Pure Sencha Green Tea, Two Seasons Darjeeling, Medley of Mint, or Budding Meadow Camomile. Each box contains 15 large-leaf tea bags and can only be found at the Tea Caddy shop.

Even though it’s still warm and balmy here in Florida, it’s easy to get in the holiday spirit with the various flavors of Twinings Holiday Teas. Just the smell of the sweet apple and spicy cinnamon notes in the Winter Spice tea make me feel like I’m back home in New York sitting in front of the fireplace while the snow falls outside.

If all of this sounds like your cup of tea, be sure to check out a brand new offering at Walt Disney World Resort, the Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room Tea Experience.

Cool Stuff: New ‘Game of Thrones’ Monopoly Plays the Show’s Theme Until You Go Crazy

Game of Thrones Monopoly

If you thought a good old-fashioned game of Monopoly was already enough to drive you and your entire family up the wall, just wait until you get a load of this new Game of Thrones edition of the classic board game.

Hasbro has announced the new Game of Thrones Monopoly, and since there’s a version of the board game branded by almost every conceivable intellectual property in existence, that wouldn’t normally be a big deal However, the new Game of Thrones Monopoly will be the first time ever that a music component has been incorporated into the game board. The music in question is the HBO show’s theme song that plays from the Iron Throne, which holds the game’s cards.

Inspired by HBO’s hit TV series, players move around the board with game tokens inspired by the honorary sigils of the Great Houses. Fans can buy, sell, and trade iconic locations from the Seven Kingdoms, building castles and holdfasts in their pursuit to rule the Iron Throne! Similar to the classic game of Monopoly, the more properties you own, the more rent you can collect from opponents. The last one with money when all other players have gone bankrupt, wins! The Monpoly: Game of Thrones Edition game will also feature an Iron Throne card holder with a musical stand that plays the beloved Game of Thrones theme song throughout gameplay.

Includes gameboard, 6 tokens, 28 Title Deed cards, Iron Throne card holder with musical stand, 32 Chance cards, 32 holdfasts, 12 castles, 2 dice, 95 cardboard coins (42 gold dragons, 53 silver stags), and game guide.

The new Game of Thrones Monopoly will cost $29.99, but it won’t be available until January 2019. However, you can pre-order over at the HBO shop right now. That should still give you plenty of time to finish a single game before the final season of the series debuts on HBO sometime in April.

The best TV deals of Black Friday 2018

Black Friday season is likely the best and smartest time of year to purchase a new TV. It’s between this and sometime around the Super Bowl, when prices also tend to drop. A ton of retailers will be offering doorbuster specials like TVs priced under $200. Tempting as those “deals” might seem, it’s worth remembering that you’ll likely keep a TV for several years. Even for secondary sets, it’s worth spending a bit more to get something that’ll be a pleasure to watch.

Nothing on this list is a waste of your money. If you can spring for an LG OLED, that’s obviously the way to go. Second to that, I’d recommend either the TCL 6 Series or Vizio P-Series Quantum. We’ve yet to formally review the latter, but I can tell you it delivers…

Maybe using butane to extract weed oil isn’t the best idea

No one’s ever satisfied with what they have. If you’re given a piece of cake, chances are, you’d be happy with another helping. You’ve got a job, but you’d like a better one. You can enjoy the view from the valley, but the scenery would be better at the top of the mountain.

Canada has legal cannabis. Now the cops are worried about Canadians making their own hash oil using dangerous methods.

From the Kelowna Daily Courier:

Alberta law enforcement officials say they are worried that the legalization of marijuana could lead to potentially explosive consequences for users taking a do-it-yourself approach to making cannabis derivatives at home.

Just over a month ago, Canadians were given the right to purchase dried and fresh cannabis and unconcentrated forms of cannabis oil.

It is likely to be another year before concentrates will be legalized.

“What’s going to happen — and this is just my prediction — is that people are going to do a butane hash extraction at home and they’re going to blow themselves up,” said Sgt. Guy Pilon, clandestine lab co-ordinator with the Edmonton Police Service.

“We’ve had a number of those in the recent past. People blow themselves up trying to make this weed oil.”

According to Sgt. Pilon, in the days before dope was legalized in Canada, the Edmonton Police Service dealt with only a handful of homemade lab setups designed to extract oil hash oil, using butane. The oil extracted is wicked potent. Unfortunately, using butane to extract it is wicked dangerous: a single spark with butane in the air will ensure you have a bad day.

Shatter is insanely potent. It can have a THC concentration upwards of 95%. I can see why a little DIY dope project would be a tempting proposition. Despite the gains of making the stuff, it’s hard to say whether or not it’s really worth the risk. The interwebz are full of detailed instructions on how to make their own butane shatter, sure: the web is a wonderful place.

It is also a place full of dangerous idiots.

We’re all adults here. If you decide to choose your own butane adventure, please remember: it’s not just you that you’re putting at risk by mucking about with a highly flammable gas in a highly unrecommended manner. Your neighbors, children and everyone else around you has skin in the game as well.

Take care of you and yours. No one else will.
