Wishbone did a little research into the origin of his name and this is what he came up with...
An ancient Italian civilization, the Etruscans, believed birds were future-predicting oracles. When the Etruscans slaughtered a chicken, they would harvest its wishbone and set it out in the sun to dry (in hopes of preserving the chicken’s divine powers). People would then pick up the bone in order to hold it in their hands and softly stroke it while making wishes upon it. The story goes that so many Romans wanted to make wishes that there weren’t enough wishbones to go around and so...they began breaking the wishbones so more people would get to make wishes. The Romans passed the wishbone-breaking tradition along to the English, who brought the ritual with them over to Plymouth Rock.
And so one can only conclude...Wishbone = divine powers.

We checked a couple other weather websites and they all agree that we came into November last year with a high of 69 degrees!Weather history Rochester New York November 2016:

Whole Wheat or Whole grain?
Both are good choices. The word "whole" is what you want to look for on the label. It means the bread was made using the entire kernel, which offers the most nutritional value. Essentially, whole wheat is a whole grain.
Whole wheat means that the bread is made from the entire wheat kernel.
Whole grain means that the bread can be made of any whole-grain kernel. That grain may be wheat or it could be another grain like spelt, oats, or barley. The bread might even be made using a mixture of different whole grains.
Lots of breads are labeled "wheat" or "multigrain," but these words alone (without the word "whole" attached) can be misleading. If you don't see the word "whole" on the package, it means the bread might not be made from the entire kernel.
The recommended serving for whole grains is 3 to 5 servings for an adult and 2 to 3 servings for children.
