Wanna make an old-fashioned fruitcake? It's easy. Really!

Shelia Lincoln bakes. The first thing she makes for the holidays is fruitcake, because it needs to soak in brandy for three weeks. That's the most difficult part of the process — and surely you can handle that. So make some with her — and have plenty to give away, too. Instructions and ingredients are in this video, but find the entire printed recipe at IdahoStatesman.com/heart.

Guess what's for dinner? It's a condor asking.

Marti Jenkins, propagation manager at The Peregrine Fund, takes us behind the scenes at the California condor breeding facility south of Boise. See how she keeps an eye on the juveniles and parents in their nests, and accompany her as she distributes dinner so condors don't associate humans with food. Viewer beware: It's not gory, but condors are carnivores, and they eat meat.

California condor in Boise has a cool role in the history of wild condors

One of the California condors you can see on display at the World Center for Birds of Prey south of Boise, started life as an egg laid by the last two wild condors in the world, before his parents were captured to become part of a captive breeding program to save the species. He's played a role in the growth of the condor population, and he's got a new one soon. His name is Nojoqui, pronounced "Nahoy."

Through thick and thin, life and leukemia, Boise man’s art has been there

Roy Bosley has lived a good, long life. He’s lived and worked abroad, and throughout his life he’s pursued an avocation of artwork — oil painting, metal work, watercolors, wood carving. He recently learned he has leukemia and was given a prognosis of 90 to 120 days, so he’s counting down 100 days on the calendar, which is his wife’s birthday and a day before their 59th wedding anniversary.
