All eyes are on Wall Street today.  That's because a gain of 39 points will have the Dow crossing the 16,000 mark. Actually, any gain will make this the Dow's 39th record close this year.

Meanwhile, the Standard & Poors 500 is fast approaching 1,800 and the tech-heavy Nasdaq is nearing 4,000 for the first time since the dot-com bubble burst in 2000.  The Dow and the S&P 500 have both been up for six straight weeks.

If you're hoping to get a fresh turkey for your Thanksgiving meal, here's a "heads up" for you.  Butterball says there could be shortage. It seems Butterball, the nation's top producer of Thanksgiving turkeys, admits its birds are just not growing as fast as they use to.  This won't be a problem for most people.  Butterball says the shortage only affects "fresh" turkeys, not the frozen ones most people buy.

If you own an Apple device, there's some good news when it comes to Google's music service.  It's now available to you.  The new Google Play Music app will give iPhone users access to any songs purchased from Google Play.  It's even better news for people who subscribe to "All Access."  They will be able to stream any song from the Google Play library.
