Thanksgiving - 2007

As we fast near our Thanksgiving for 2007, it is important to remember that Thanksgiving as well as the Fourth of July are uniquely holidays of the United States of America. Along with our English language, our newest citizens need to learn also about the importance of Thanksgiving... I leave the telling of that to the experts but then they have missed the first Thanksgiving held at Berkeley Plantation in 1616 or 1617 a few years before our Plymouth Rock brothers and sisters held their own Thanksgiving. :) Have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving. Be safe on the highways and if you find yourself ready to carve up Uncle Fred or scream at Aunt Mildred, rent or buy the movie "Home for the Holidays" with Ann Bancroft, Rodney Downy, Jr, and a good cast that will have you laughing. If you find yourself alone on Thanksgiving, even more important to rent the movie and get a good chuckle.

We do not have Thanksgiving here, but, I do hope everyone always does have a safe journey, not just whilst driving, but their journey through life. As usual, we are human, and we can expect a bumpy ride, however, thanksgiving is such a great idea, just to remind people what they ought to concentrate on, happy times, great times with loved ones near and far.

Have a great holiday!

I'm thankful to be blessed to live in such a rich and wonderful country. I'm thankful for the gift of God's bounty in America, in my freedom to succeed to the best of my ability, and to raise a family free from fear or want.

I'm especially thankful for all Americans who work to make the lives of other people better, for example our teachers and firefighters.

I'm extra, extra thankful for our military service personnel who have put themselves in harm's way to defend our interests and spread the cause of freedom to those nations less fortunate than ours.

Here's to wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Cassie and all: Hush, hush, don't let the liberals know that Thanksgiving is a holiday to give thanks to (quiet now) God.

Yes, we have much to be thankful for and one doesn't need America's and Canada's Thanksgiving for an excuse, Eh!
