Oh, what a big grille you have.

Toyota

When it comes to pickup trucks, Toyota is often loath to change, but the company is finally making strides in the full-size truck space with the introduction of the third-generation Tundra on Sunday. It’s been 14 years since Toyota launched the second-gen Tundra, and it’s definitely been left in the dust by heavyweights like the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150, GMC Sierra and Ram 1500. (Click here to see how these trucks stack up.)

The 2022 Toyota Tundra will be available in SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 and TRD Pro trims. The Double Cab configuration can be chosen with a 6.5 or 8 foot bed, while the larger CrewMax is offered with 5.5 or 6.5 foot bed options.

Overall, the 2022 Tundra is a bit longer and not as tall as its predecessor. The truck’s design is quite modern, with a large grille and headlights that live high on the front fascia, surrounded by well-made running lights. Depending on the trim you buy, the Tundra can be decorated with lots of chrome or oversized badges.

The rear of the truck is dominated by new elongated taillights with three distinct lighting elements. Toyota didn’t go all the way in the hatchback war, so don’t expect extra features like Ram’s split design or GMC’s multi-function setup. The Tundra’s tailgate simply opens as usual, with the only improvements being a 20% weight reduction and the inclusion of a shock button on the side of the taillight that you can use when your hands are full.

Under the hood, the 2022 Tundra drops the V8 engines from the latest generation truck in favor of a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 with a hybrid option. The standard i-Force V6 produces 389 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, while the electrified i-Force Max delivers 437 hp and 583 lb-ft. Both engines are mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The hybrid option is available on Limited, Platinum and 1794 trims, and allows all-electric cruising at low speed, in addition to providing more chutzpah when the throttle is on the ground. Off-road and towing enthusiasts will likely appreciate all that torque, which comes in at a low revs of 2,400 rpm.

The new Tundra is equipped with a twin-turbo V6 engine.

Toyota

In order to improve the ride quality of the Tundra, Toyota ditched the truck’s old leaf springs in favor of a multi-link coil spring setup at the rear. The Tundra can be fitted with adaptive rear air suspension, which can adjust damping forces according to road conditions. The rear air configuration has high, normal and low modes, to make loading and leveling the platform easier when towing a trailer.

Speaking of towing, the new Tundra can pull up to 12,000 pounds. There are also two modes of towing / transport. One is designed for light loads like a small box trailer, while the Tow / Haul Plus feature boosts throttle response for heavier items. Likewise, the payload is also increased, up to a maximum of 1,940 pounds. That’s an 11% increase over the previous Tundra.

There are now more camera views to keep an eye on everything, including one for the truck bed, a split-view camera for each side, a hitch view, and a bird’s eye perspective. Blind Spot Monitoring can cover the entire length of the trailer, and Toyota’s rear trailer guidance helps drivers make those precise turns when backing up. Straight Path Assist can help keep the trailer in reverse in a straight line. Yes, the latter is harder than it looks.

Of course, Toyota wouldn’t be Toyota without its TRD trims. The TRD Off-Road Package is available on the SR5, Limited and 1794 models and gives you TRD-specific wheels, grille and skid plates, as well as Bilstein shocks. If your truck has four-wheel drive, the package also adds a locking rear differential, various terrain driving modes, and Crawl Control, which is akin to low-speed cruise control for off-roading. For those who prefer a quick look, the TRD Sport can be added to the SR5 models and includes a TRD grille and wheels, as well as a lowered suspension.

The Tundra’s larger touchscreen is a welcome upgrade.

Toyota

However, it’s the TRD Pro model that gets all the best off-road goodies. Available only with the i-Force Max hybrid powertrain, the TRD Pro features 33-inch Falken Wildpeak tires wrapped around 18-inch TRD wheels. A set of 2.5 inch Fox internal shocks with stacked tanks lives at each corner and the front of the truck gets 1.1 inch of lift over other trims. Other TRD elements include an upgraded front stabilizer bar and TRD aluminum protective plating, in addition to the aforementioned rear locker, Multi Terrain Select and Crawl Control.

Inside, the Tundra gets a massive update in terms of design and technology. The Tundra comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, although drivers can opt for a 14-inch center screen oriented horizontally. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included, as is Bluetooth compatibility for up to five devices. You can save up to three driver profiles in the Tundra multimedia system.

The infotainment system itself is drastically different from what you’ll find in other Toyotas, with decent voice recognition, quick reaction times, and pinch-to-zoom capabilities. Other high-tech upgrades include an available 12.3-inch reconfigurable gauge cluster that lights up with one of the five rotating tundra animations. Who doesn’t like a good welcome animation?

As for advanced driving aids, Toyota includes its Safety Sense 2.5 on every Tundra. This gives you features like pre-collision braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane departure assistance and lane departure warning which now comes with steering assistance if you get out of the way. the way. Automatic high beams, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, traffic sign assistance and a rear seat reminder are also available.

The design is really cool.

Toyota

Gone is the bulky and chunky design of the latest generation Tundra, replaced by better materials and a cleaner look. Buyers can opt for a panoramic sunroof, heated steering wheel, and heated and cooled seats. And don’t worry, the electrically sliding rear center window is still there.

The gear lever has been redesigned to be stronger and thicker and there is more storage space for small items. The venerable big buttons below the infotainment screen have been replaced with a row of sleek toggle switches, but Toyota has done the right thing by keeping a physical volume knob.

We’ll know more about the 2022 Tundra when we get the chance to drive it in the coming weeks. Information on pricing and fuel economy is also expected to be available around this time, before the 2022 Tundra hits dealers later this year.

Since her debut album in 2017, English-born singer and songwriter Jade Bird has gained international recognition. In 2019, the now Nashville-based musician was named Ones to Watch by MTV Push, Emerging Act of the Year by Americana Music Honors & Awards and International Breakthrough by AIM Independent Music Awards, among other accolades.

On Wednesday October 6, Bird will take the stage at the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek as part of the Underground Sound series – known as the “Love for the locals” series – with special guest Diana DeMuth opening the show. spectacle.

This show is for you if you like: Brandi Carlile, Phoebe Bridgers, Jason Isbell, First Aid Kit, Sheryl Crow, The Highwomen and I’m With Her.



Drawn to songwriting at a young age, Bird spent her teenage years performing in England. The success of a live YouTube performance of her song “Madeline” eventually landed her a contract with Glassnote, which released her debut EP, “Something American”, in 2017. She spent part of that year on tour in the United States with singer Americana Brent Cobb. With successful singles thereafter, Bird’s self-titled debut album of 2019 topped the UK Americana charts and reached No. 10 on the pop charts. After the release, she found herself playing with Jason Isbell, Sheryl Crow, and Brandi Carlile. In August, Bird released their second album, “Different Kinds of Light,” written in Japan, Mexico, Nashville and upstate New York, and recorded with producer Dave Cobb (Brent’s cousin). six-time Grammy Award winner.

Bird has been touted by Vogue and Rolling Stone and received high praise from Pitchfork and NPR.



For Bird, the second that the lockdown lifted in 2020, she had returned directly to Nashville to complete her second album – albeit after a strict two-week quarantine in Mexico City. She allowed herself to see the Mexican capital only as the local store and a leg stretch walk around the block, not wanting to compromise any chance of being allowed in the United States to complete what she had. started with producer Dave Cobb.

“My feeling was: I’m in it, I love these songs, I want to sing,” she says. “That’s why we moved heaven and earth so that I could do it at that time. “

In the United States, Bird is part of a community of songwriters and career artists in Nashville who have shown him that musicians are first and foremost to be artists.

“If you lose your sense of who you are, it’s really hard to restore that,” she says of the pressure on developing artists. “And the time it takes for you to re-evaluate your life, your sound, who you are, the UK doesn’t have time for that either.”

DeMuth, opening act for Bird, has a full bodied voice like the great songwriter Adele. His debut album, “Misadventure”, is due out via Thirty Tigers on September 25, and this new single follows previously shared singles by DeMuth, “Hotel Song”, “Rose of Nantucket”, “Steady Rolling” – a cover of Two Gallants’ hit – and “Into My Arms”, which was accompanied by a video starring Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers. Rolling Stone calls DeMuth’s music “a euphoric staple.”

Hunting Guide: Capt Jake Huddleston: “It’s just the birds that work and are out there, the people, the water – everything”

Captain Jake Huddleston’s late mother told him that if someone opened his head, it would be filled with feathers.

She was right. The life of the 45-year-old hunting guide has revolved around waterfowl since childhood.

“That’s about all that has ever interested me,” he said. “All through school it was just hunting and fishing. They tried to make me play soccer, and I didn’t care because I didn’t want to watch the movies on Saturday mornings and not being able to hunt. “

Huddleston grew up in Olivia and did his first duck hunt with his father when he was only 2-3 years old. At the age of 6, he asked his parents for duck decoys for Christmas and birthdays.

Since 1995, he has guided duck, dove and goose hunts in Calhoun and Jackson counties. He has grown his business, Hunt H2O Extreme, over the decades, and has built a reputation for consistency in an industry riddled with uncontrollable factors.

“He is very knowledgeable about bird hunts and we always have successful hunts with him,” said Sam Bass, a Huddleston client who lives in Sweeny and who hunts an average of about 10 hunts with him each season. “That’s why we keep coming back.”

Bass first met Huddleston about 15 years ago, when Huddleston was running for Bay Flats Lodge in Seadrift.

“I hunted with a lot of other guide services that are hit and miss,” Bass said. “I would say he’s actually the best guide I’ve ever hunted when it comes to consistency.”

Huddleston started out guiding on public land, but said he quickly saw the benefit of renting private property, where he could build habitat for migratory birds and not have to worry about land politics that may result from hunting on public lands.

Building a habitat, in some ways, has become necessary. Huddleston is at the forefront of a long-term warming trend and habitat decline that has made the Texas coast less desirable than it once was for geese and ducks.

“It upsets me, but it’s one of those things where no matter what you talk about, whether it’s fishing or hunting, you talk to a senior or your grandpa and they’ll say, ‘Dude, you should have seen them back then, ‘”he said.” It’s inevitable. Things are changing, and they have changed. “

For example, the Midwinter Waterfowl Survey released by Texas Parks and Wildlife in 2018 shows the lowest estimate of ducks in the past 25 years. The goose decline is even more surprising for Texas, which was previously known as the # 1 wintering ground for snow geese throughout North America.

Like many, Huddleston attributes much of the declines to changes in farming practices. Farmers have improved their crops by minimizing waste and improving irrigation over the years and rice production in the area has declined, meaning there are fewer fields of milo, rice and corn. flooded where waterfowl once flocked to feed.

“Everyone’s got things in place now where the water flows so much better, and you can’t blame them because they have to make a living by farming,” Huddleston said. “But with farming practices changing, you can’t just let a piece of land sit there and expect the birds to come.”

Outside of the hunting season, he is busy preparing his leases for ducks, geese and turtledoves. He also guides fishing trips and hog hunts, although his primary focus has always been on waterfowl.

“He takes a lot of pride in it and works really, really hard,” said Marvin “Marty” Strakos Jr., who grew up with Huddleston and hunted with him since they were kids.

While in high school and college, Strakos guided with Huddleston before starting his own boat trailer manufacturing business in Seadrift.

“Jake is one of my oldest friends, and making a living as a guide? It’s tough, for sure,” Strakos said. “And Jake is nothing but a workaholic when it comes to bird hunting… there is no one better.”

Lots of discs, mulching and weed spraying are needed to prepare the property for the season, Huddleston said.

“It’s a manipulation of the soil to prepare it to put water in it, then the water has to continue at a certain time to grow the right food for the ducks and the crops have to be planted at the right time for the geese.” , “he said.” Everything has its own schedule, and it’s not easy to do. “

Everything comes at a price, which is a gamble that a lot of people don’t think about, he said.

“It’s a state of mind,” Huddleston said. “You have to let things get out of hand and be prepared to take a risk. Like last year, I invested a lot of money in geese stuff that didn’t work, so I had to take a blow and get some that money by researching other stuff. “

Waterfowl migration is driven by multiple factors, including weather conditions, reproductive productivity, habitat, food resources, and hunting pressure. The conditions that lead to migration also vary from species to species.

Huddleston watches the weather like clockwork and pays close attention to habitat conditions on breeding grounds in North America, which provide insight into the numbers of young birds that will move south through Texas during the migratory season.

There is no way to control the weather. Some years, strong cold fronts only push birds shoreward on the last weekend of the season, and hunting is difficult, Huddleston said.

But going through tough years always helped him find a way to make things work, he said.

“We put in every effort, and if it got to the point where we ran out of ducks, then I promise you no one has ducks,” Huddleston said.

‘You must be someone human’

The season for doves, teals and Canada geese opens each year in September, followed by the opening of the regular season for ducks and pale and brown geese in November.

With the exception of Christmas morning at his wife’s request, Huddleston guides and discovers birds every day of the regular duck season. He also hires three to four guides to lead additional trips on his leases.

Most of his clients during the regular migratory bird season come from out of state and have hunted with him for 10 to 20 years, he said. In November and September, he says he mainly guides Texans who come from big cities.

With the exception of one year during the Great Recession, Al Henry has traveled to Texas with friends every year to hunt with Huddleston for the past 20 years.

The 60-year-old man from Virginia said his group killed up to 11 different species of ducks and four to five different types of geese in a single trip.

“Jake has a great ability to call (birds) and can identify different species a mile away,” Henry said. “If your gun breaks down while you’re hunting, he can also take most of them apart in a blind and fix them, so it’s not a wasted day. I’ve seen him do it a bunch of times.”

Although very important, guiding is not just about a person’s ability to put their clients on the birds or their in-depth knowledge of the sport. The key to being a good guide is to create ease, said Huddleston.

“Everyone wants it to be easy,” he said. “They come here to relax. They don’t want to walk in the mud, and they don’t want to sit in the mud. The other thing # 1 is you have to be a social person.”

With the guides he hires, Huddleston emphasizes the importance of having an outgoing and lively personality when speaking to clients and spending time with them.

“I’m seeing kids now who are great duck hunters, and I’m starting to think, ‘Well, maybe he looks a lot like me. “But I haven’t found anyone so crazy about it yet,” he said. “I’m still watching these kids because I’m always looking for more guides. They have to have people who can talk to people and make people laugh. “

Later, Huddleston knows he will eventually have to find someone to take over the business he created. But until then, he said he was constantly trying to gain weight without getting so big that it got out of his control.

Thinking back on his career as a guide, he said he wouldn’t change a thing.

“I still love him,” Huddleston said. “It’s just the birds that work and are there, the people, the water – everything.”

JB Custom Calls and Riceland Custom Calls are solid options for high quality calls, said Huddleston.

Joe Briscoe started JB Custom Calls in 2006 after about a decade guiding waterfowl hunts.

His company is based in the Mont Belvieu region and focused on ease of use.

Briscoe said his calls were made to last a lifetime. It offers bespoke fittings and personalized engravings such as company logos.

“The main part of personalizing what I do is tailoring the appeal to the person,” he said. “When you buy a call here it’s for life… if you need help, if you need it returned or reworked, you can come and bring it here.”

Briscoe uses a variety of materials including acrylic, bowwood, mahogany, maple, khaki, and cocobolo.

The teal calls are $ 45, the wood duck calls are $ 85, the speck and crane calls are $ 175, and the acrylic duck call, known as “TCA”, is of $ 150.

For more information, call Briscoe at 832-262-0271 or check out his business page on Instagram, @jbcustomcalls.

Riceland is based in Hayes, Louisiana, and sells goose and duck calls. James Meyers and Bill Daniels started the company in 2010 and have resellers in the United States, as well as Russia, France, Ukraine and Bulgaria.

The nearest dealer is Johnny’s Sports Shop in Eagle Lake, although all Riceland calls can be purchased online at Ricelandcustomcalls.com.

Duck calls range from $ 40 to $ 125 and goose calls range from $ 80 to $ 195.

The DR-85 Double Reed Mallard Call made by Haydel’s Game Calls is the best “bang for your buck,” Huddleston said. It has excellent “duck bran” and is easy to find.

Most major sports and outdoor stores and several online retailers sell the Appeal at prices ranging from $ 16.99 to $ 22.99.

He’s dubbed Haydel’s “deceiver” and No. 1 salesperson, according to the company.

Based in Bossier City, Louisiana, Haydel’s sells a wide variety of calls for duck, goose, turkey, small game, deer, big game and predators. For more information visit haydels.com.

Why Experts Say You Should Plan Your Menu In Advance For Thanksgiving https://budgies-paradise.com/why-experts-say-you-should-plan-your-menu-in-advance-for-thanksgiving/ Fri, 17 Sep 2021 19:38:29 +0000 https://budgies-paradise.com/why-experts-say-you-should-plan-your-menu-in-advance-for-thanksgiving/ Thanksgiving may seem like a long time ago, but with food and commodity shortages, higher prices, and shipping issues brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, now is the time to start planning for Turkey Day. “It might not be until September, but for many, the holidays are already here,” NBC senior correspondent Stephanie Ruhle said.

Thanksgiving may seem like a long time ago, but with food and commodity shortages, higher prices, and shipping issues brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, now is the time to start planning for Turkey Day.

“It might not be until September, but for many, the holidays are already here,” NBC senior correspondent Stephanie Ruhle said. “Experts urge Americans to plan ahead.”

The first thing Ruhle wants you to put on your to-do list? Obtain food for your Thanksgiving feast.

“Shopping for holiday food this year will be harder than ever,” Phil Lempert, food trends analyst and editor of SupermarketGuru.com TODAY Food said in an email. “The perfect storm of climate change, especially the wildfires in the West, destroyed some crops, pushing up the cost of soybean and corn feeds for animals, resulting in by an increase in costs for the farmer and therefore the buyer. “

Lempert said he is looking for the biggest increases in animal products: milk, eggs, beef, pork, chicken and, yes, even turkey. “Transportation costs have increased dramatically. According to Tyson, refrigerated transportation is up more than 10% and there is a shortage of truck drivers, so it is difficult to get food to market,” a- he declared.

Due to the pandemic, many food processing facilities are operating well below capacity. Add to that the fact that many supermarkets report that their suppliers can only fulfill 50-70% of their orders and you have a recipe for a holiday disaster.

“What all of this means is that prices will continue to rise over the next 16 to 18 months and we will see shortages on the supermarket shelves,” Lempert said. “When it comes to our favorite Thanksgiving food, fresh and frozen little turkeys (those 16 lbs and under) will be in short supply, so clean your freezer now and shop for holiday food early, in-store and online. . He said, reminding buyers that even Amazon sells whole turkeys.

Ruhle said if you get your hands on a bird, expect to pay more for it. “Groceries are up 3% from a year ago and turkeys, more than 6%.”

Ruhle said it wasn’t too early to start ordering your turkey and cranberries now – and Jake Tavello, vice president of stores at Stew Leonard’s, a Northeastern supermarket chain, echoed this. feeling, advising customers to order in advance.

“Stew Leonard’s has ordered enough turkeys of all sizes to feed our customers on Thanksgiving,” Tavello said TODAY in an email, saying his stores sell over a million pounds of turkey for. vacations. Her main advice to customers is, you guessed it, to shop early.

“You can buy your Thanksgiving turkey up to 10 days in advance,” he said. “We also suggest that you stock up on basic items in your pantry in the weeks leading up to the holidays, and then head to the store just before the holidays for your fresh bread, produce and pies.”

If you’re worried about having to serve pizza for Thanksgiving dinner, the National Turkey Federation reassures patrons that there will be enough birds for everyone. The key to getting what you want, as Ruhle said, is to plan ahead.

“The turkey is the centerpiece of the Thanksgiving meal, and Americans can rest assured that there will be enough turkeys available this holiday season,” said Beth Breeding, National Federation vice president of communications and marketing. turkeys, in an email.

“If families have a preference for a fresh turkey, a specific size turkey, or a particular cut of turkey like a bone-in breast, we recommend that you plan ahead with your local retailer to ensure you get exactly the right amount of turkey. holiday turkey you want. Shopping early is always a good plan! Ultimately, no matter how you celebrate Thanksgiving, there is a turkey option for your table. “

If you’ve bought chicken in the past 10 years, now might be the time to recoup! In a $ 181 million class action settlement, consumers could be eligible for cash back due to a scheme between certain poultry companies that was really for the birds.

NBC News Chicago reported that prosecutors in the Broiler Chicken Antitrust Litigation lawsuit alleged that several companies conspired to stabilize the price and supply of chicken in violation of state and federal consumer antitrust laws.

If you purchased chicken from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2020 from Fieldale Farms Corporation, George’s, Mar-Jac Poultry, Peco Foods, Pilgrim’s Pride, and Tyson Foods, you may be eligible to receive payment.

Anyone who bought fresh or frozen raw chicken or whole birds cut from wrapper or pieces of white meat could have a claim, the lawsuit said. Meat marketed as halal, kosher, farmhouse or organic is not included in the trial.

If the chicken you purchased was purchased in the following states, you may be eligible: California, District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah and Wisconsin.

“More than $ 180 million in settlements have been reached with the defendants in this litigation,” Brent W.

The lawsuit, filed by Alabama farmers, claimed the setup had pushed them into deep debt as they attempted to build and maintain chicken coops that meet company standards. Perdue and Tyson agreed to the settlement without admitting any wrongdoing.

“While Perdue Farms denies the allegations of wrongdoing in the complaint and is prepared to vigorously defend itself against such allegations, resolving this lawsuit is in the best interests of our business and our network of dedicated farmers. “, a spokesperson for Perdue told TODAY Food. in an email.
