Cranberries have never been at the top of my list. They're OK. And, I do use the dried ones in my granola. But, I wouldn't go out of my way for them.
Pomegranate juice and carbonated water - mighty tasty.

Randy, a C grade sounds better than what it could have been,  No prayer would definitely increase my grade, but no gravy would decrease it a bit. : )

Chris reminded me that I've read where there are more takers when a low price is put on something, rather than free.

Joan, I'm pleased to hear that your family are agnostic or atheist, so there is no conflicts.

Mike, I like the good news about your youngest daughter.

I do like cranberry/pomegranate juice.

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 28, 2014 at 10:48am

Felaine, I may try some cranberries with orange juice and cinnamon.  It sounds like it may taste better.

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 28, 2014 at 10:44am

Felaine, I get very angry at thieves, even though It's not good for me.  That's why I spend some time and some of my limited income on fences, good locks, alarms, and security cameras.

I resent having to go to that much trouble, but I think the small amount of resentment is not as bad for me as anger.

Randall, put up a sign with a low price on it - that might work better than "FREE".

Comment by Randall Smith on November 28, 2014 at 7:44am

Felaine, hope you get over your anger. I can't blame you. Oddly, I can't even give away my garden veggies and yard fruits. I put out a roadside stand with "FREE" signs, but nobody stops.

Joan and Daniel, glad your meals were successful and evidently, delicious!

My father's retirement community's Thanksgiving dinner was exactly what I expected: white, dry turkey meat, mashed potatoes and stuffing with no gravy, yucky green beans, and hot noodles (good!). The salad and pecan pie was very good. Overall, I'd give the meal a "C". Missed sweet potatoes and cranberries. No prayer!  Just a nice quiet, peaceful dinner with my semi-deaf father and one of my twin sisters.

Felaine, I'm sorry you lost some of your avocados to thieves. Hope you find them and give them a bill. Sadly, not likely to happen. Your cranberry sauce sounds just delicious. That will spark up your spirits with the zingy tastes. 

Daniel, your dinner sounds delicious! Did Ning roast a turkey? 

Michael, Sounds like a nice, private time with your daughter. Perhaps she will join you in celebrating the freedom that comes with non-belief in super-human beings. It helps to not participate in the commercialism of religious holidays. 

Chris, "One Misty, Moisty Morning" is an old nursery rhyme that I sang to my kids when they were little and the weather was foggy. This version has many more parts than the one I sang. Whenever there is fog, I think of those days. 

Our dinner was a smashing success. Everyone pitched in to help. Larry is a fine cook ... he likes to do the turkey and pies. I was his assistant. There is so much laughter and good humor at these gatherings. They are all agnostic or atheists, so we have no conflicts.

Our preparations for the Yule begins. The Yule Log has been picked out and will burn on Dec 21 to celebrate the return of daylight.

Four month old Brooklyn's sweet personality shone through the day. She smiles a lot with familiar faces. She takes her time getting acquainted with strangers, then gives a big smile. Dominic, the black lab, sits by her, making sure she is OK.
