Don’t eat a bird frozen since 1980.
I found a Butterball in my father-in-law’s freezer last week. It’s still in the original packaging, never opened. I don’t see a date on it but it was wrapped in a newspaper from when Reagan was president. Do you think it’s safe to thaw and cook this thing? — Doug Allison, South Street
The Times advises against it. Finally, that paper and I are in agreement.

Not bad. 52 Pecksland has sold for $1.650 million. Owner paid $3.495 for it in 2005 and, before that, someone paid $2 million in 1999.
19 Weston Hill, 0.43 of an acre with a 1956 tear-down on it was listed October 21 at $1.195 million and is under contract today. FAR allows more than 5,000 sq.ft. to be built here.
134 Butternut Hollow
Expired unsold today, 134 Butternut Hollow Road. It started at $2.495 million back in May, which was not crazy at all – the sellers paid $2.1 million for it in 2002 and this year the town appraised it (70% market value) at $2.276. Built in 2000, 4,600 sq. ft. and a 2,000 sq. ft. unfinished basement on a good street. Nonetheless it didn’t sell even with a price drop to $1.995 last month.
To be honest, I don’t remember this property and I may not even have seen it so I ask readers, what is/was wrong with it?
Massachusetts approves casino gambling. The Hartford looters extract more than $300 million a year from granny and her slot machine quarters but that’s not going to last. New Jersey, by the way, is pushing to legalize sports gambling in that state and has rosy budget predictions based on all the loot it will garner. It seems to me that, if New Jersey succeeds, every other state will do the same thing and what will be left of the pie then? It’ll be “four minute abs”, for those who remember “Something about Mary”.
Just like the train to nowhere, this one’s being built with other people’s money. Oh there’s the little matter of $100 million or so that will be extracted from Greenwich residents but who cares about them?
