Today in the United States is Thanksgiving.

So for all those who are with family and friends today enjoy and be grateful.

For those separated look forward to the future and remember the good times.

How long was it that you guys spent murdering the very people who had given the original settlers the assistance that saved their lives and gave rise to this 'celebration'?

But, yeah, happy thanksgiving.  :'(

Here in bleak Yorkshire, we have a colleague over from San Francisco, missing Thanksgiving and depressed because of the wind, rain and lack of daylight!

We're thinking of getting him a líghtbox.

Interesting, you type líghtbox and it puts msmoby, do I win a prize?

No it means, I don't think he was acting.
I thought the quote was obvious.
