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?

You should know better than us, since we were under British rule at the time you are refering to.

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

After posting and starting this thread I went out to cut an elderly's lawn of a neighbour using his tractor. His property is on a step hill side and I criss cross laterally the hillside at a steep angle. More or less hiking out as if on a sailboat to maintain stability.

I misjudged a turn & the tractor capsized the last thing I was able to do was kill the blade. It more or less rolled over me.

Besides my ego the only damage is my right side which is now a vivid abstract of blue and black. The effing tractor is fine. John Deere makes a strong tractor.

It could have been allot worse for that I am grateful. And I can safely say to Andrew that I have a minor addiction to Ibuprofen, not sure if that will influence my posts.

If at all possible I would prefer to look at the things that unite us.
