Joan, I love the Thanksgiving holiday. I celebrate it like I do with Christmas, with my own values, meaning, and interpretation. No, I don't use the day to celebrate and glorify the genocide that occurred on this continent. I make the day "my own" and celebrate and reflect upon what I personally am thankful for. Plus, I really enjoy the "traditional" meal which, incidentally, is nothing like the actual food served by the Indians and Pilgrims.

Love the political ad, Bertold.
I hope you enjoy your low-key Thanksgiving, Randy. I don't blame you for not wanting to participate in a setting that makes you uncomfortable.

While you guys are getting snow, we expect a high of 61°F tomorrow and 66°F Friday. Those roses are still OK. It was down to 28°F last night here in the burbs, but there they were. I think the south side of that building, facing a parking lot, is a micro-environment that saves up heat from the day.
Happy Turkey Day to all!
