On December 26, 1776, General George Washington's Continental Army reaches the outskirts of Trenton, New Jersey, and descends upon the unsuspecting Hessian force guarding the city. Trenton's 1,400 Hessian defenders were still groggy from the previous evening's Christmas festivities and had underestimated the Patriot threat after months of decisive British victories throughout New York. The troops of the Continental Army quickly overwhelmed the German defenses, and by 9:30 a.m.Trenton was completely surrounded. it is purported that the headless horseman of Sleepy Hollow was a Hessian hussar (cavalry)...nowadays they own several gas stations HAHAHA, oh this one is up on the wall!!

Mo, many years ago I use to occasionally watching cooking segments on QVC,Sundays.  While they have interesting items, their S/H with added tax is quite expensive. Sometimes  the S/H plus tax equals to half the price of the item.  I occasionally find some of their items in Bed Bath and Beyond. I haven't watched QVC for a number of years. I do recall, they have great demonstrations.  Another show featuring new and current kitchen items is "The Chew" on ABC. I search for those items and find them in BB&B and Amazon.  

Always proud to be a Yankee fan.
