The "Red Thumb Reminder" is described as an old-school solution to a new world problem. While it may sound simple and a little silly, it can work! RTM spoke to Steve Babcock who was inspired by his daughter's technique of tying a piece of yarn on her finger to remember something at school. He began painting his thumbnail red to remind him to put his phone down while driving. Guess what? It's worked. One nail salon owner even offered people a free gel red nail polish on your thumb as a way for her to contribute to this cause. We think nail salon owners everywhere should offer this service for a limited time and see if can continue to push this movement forward.

Check out Evolution Bureau's video. Would you try it? It's worth a shot. #RedThumbReminder

Three Last Minute Thanksgiving Hacks That Could Save Your Turkey Day

Three Last Minute Thanksgiving Hacks That Could Save Your Turkey Day

Never are the stakes higher in the month of November than on Thanksgiving Day. Is there enough food? How's the gravy? Can someone wake up Uncle Buck? RightThisMInute's Jessica Hord   put together this awesome Thanksgiving Hack compilation. It may not have the perfect solution for every problem that may come your way this Turkey Day, but it could get you out of a couple of jams.  Make sure to keep up-to-date on Jessica's tutorials by following her Facebook Page. Watch the tutorial below - we've even written down the instructions for you!   FIXES: 1. Ice Chest Fix You'll Need: -- Your ice chest -- Frozen foods (if you're trying to keep foods cold) Instructions: 1. If you don't have enough room in your fridge for all the items you need to keep cold, package them up and put them in your ice chest, along with already frozen items from your freezer. 2. Maybe you have a while to travel or you're worried about some items getting cold while other items cook -- put items in your ice-chest and they'll stay warm!   2. Gravy Fixes You'll Need: -- Your problem gravy -- Wine (for brown gravies, I suggest using a red)  -- Soy sauce -- Water -- Broth (for turkey gravy, I used chicken broth) -- Butter -- Flour -- Whisk -- Sieve Instructions: 1. Does your gravy have lumps? Pour the lumpy gravy through a sieve into another bowl or pot -- the sieve should catch the lumps! 2. Is your gravy too thick? Whisk in tiny amounts of broth until it's perfect! Don't have broth? Use wine. Don't have wine? Use water. 3. Is your gravy too thin? Whisk in a roux! For thin gravy I'd use equal parts melted butter and flour.  4. Is your gravy lacking flavor? If it's on the saltier side, whisk in tiny amounts of wine until you like it! If it could use a little more salt, whisk in tiny amounts of soy sauce until you like it!   3. Roaster Rack Fix  You'll Need: -- Foil Instructions: 1. Take a long piece of foil and roll like a snake. Then coil what you've rolled. Place in your roaster and adjust it to fit -- put your turkey on top!   View Now

Gayle On Film: Four New Releases This Holiday Season

The Darkest Hour: A In "Darkest Hour,” Gary Oldman gives a commanding performance as Winston Churchill as he is made prime minister of England in 1940 as the island nation once again faces world war. He doesn't have the complete support of the crown or his own party, but what director Joe Wright shows is how Churchill had the unmistakable statesmanship that eventually galvanized his king and country.
