Mrs. Prindableâ€™s starts with a handpicked, extra-fancy apple, grown especially for us. Delivered fresh from the orchard and with the utmost care, it is gigantic in size, crispness, taste, and juiciness.
The apple is dipped-by hand-in creamy, smooth caramel cooked that very day. Using only the best all-natural ingredients-butter, sugar, cream, vanilla-the caramel is prepared in copper pots in small batches.

“Crocodile Hunter” star Steve Irwin, who died last year in a stingray attack, is being honored in Australia with a wildlife reserve named for him.
The Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve — a 333,000-acre park in the naturalists home state of Queensland — features marsupials, sharks and dry vine forest, Sky News reported Sunday.
Irwin was particularly fond of the area that is now the reserve, his wife Terri Irwin said, and “would have been proud to see the property protected as a wildlife reserve,” Sky News reported.
The Irwin family will manage the reserve, said Malcolm Tumbull, Australian environment minister.
The Irwins 8-year-old daughter, Bindi Irwin, has launched a career of her own in nature television.
Seems like an interesting concept I had never heard of – Dr. Disney

A battle is brewing in Dollywoodâ€™s Timber Canyon area as work begins on River Battle, the theme parkâ€™s new water adventure ride set to open in 2008.
The $5 million River Battle is a themed water raft ride equipped with powerful soaker guns. Nine rafts, each with room for eight passengers, follow a 500-foot channel. As the rafts navigate the waters, the battle begins as passengers, each armed with a soaker gun, take aim at each other and more than 100 targets along the way, including large-scale â€œtalking animalsâ€â€”beavers, skunks, otters, bears and more. Some of the targets shoot back while others display a variety of special effects, creating surprises at every turn and ensuring that no two rides are ever exactly the same. River Battle also engages park guests along the rideâ€™s banks. While rafters are soaking each other in raft-to-raft sparring, they also can â€œshootâ€ observers along the way in â€œraft-to-shoreâ€ fun. In the parkâ€™s ongoing effort to provide opportunities to bring families closer, River Battle is yet another ride addition that allows parents and children to ride together.
