    Happy Thanksgiving...

    ...to all of you on my side of the pond!

    Yes, it's a somewhat dubious holiday, as in, let's have our Native American friends over for a nice meal before we go back to killing them and stealing their land -- but it's the thought that counts.

    Our house is usually the gathering place -- we've had as many as 18 here for Thanksgiving in the past -- but this year, it's just my wife and I and our two kids, for obvious reasons. Kind of bittersweet -- in the past few years, there's been a minimum of family dysfunction, as the main instigators have gotten clean and sober -- but it's also nice to not to have to worry about feeding and handling the big crowd. It's going to be a relaxing day, and yes -- there will be giving of thanks...

    Cheers, folks.

    I didn't even realise that Thanksgiving was today. I hope all those who celebrate it have a good time.

    This is what I love about this site. What a kind thing to say, Phil. In my realm, few had a "good time," but tonight as I spoke to 4 children and their spouses and 11 grandchildren on Zoom, I asked them how they were doing. They're lonely, isolated and feeling flat. We included a stepmom, her first Thanksgiving alone. I listened to them all talk about what it was like to not have any of us able to be together now - and to a person, they were thankful that 2020 was almost over. I was alone all day, watching pseudo-parades on the TV, and having fish and chips for dinner. I'm becoming way too comfortable at being alone; it's almost like I will have to re-learn how to interact again.

    But thank you so much, Phil, for extending your well-wishes on our Thanksgiving Day. You scored a point with me! LOL.
    When the night has come
    And the land is dark
    And the moon is the only light we'll see
    I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
    Just as long as you stand by me.

    maybe a nice musical festival.
    some story telling and poetry readings.

    beer, wine, cheese, fishnchip spaces.

    and an invasion arena with a bay central space.
    should they face off, or roll for who goes first?

    you could retire after organizing this event.
