The REALLY FIRST Thanksgiving in America

I recently came across a series of articles on items American history that I was aware of (well, aware of some of them, at least), but not really cognizant of their details.  As I have some friends in the Southwest (Arizona/New Mexico) I have become more aware of a long-neglected part of the history of the US.  Much of our cherished beliefs are WRONG.  For example, the oldest continuously occupied (by Europeans) city in the US is Saint Augustine Florida, founded in 1565, and the capitol of Florida until 1824.  Here is a recent article I came across – just … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — November 27, 2014

. “I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. It is surprising how contented one can be with nothing definite – only a sense of existence. Well, anything for variety. I am ready to try this for the next ten thousand years, and exhaust it. How sweet to think of! my extremities well charred, and my intellectual part too, so that there is no danger of worm or rot for a long while. My breath is sweet to me. O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches. No run on my … Continue reading

Differing Views on Thanksgiving

These two people are, without a doubt, the most disgusting people to have ever drawn a breath of air, and living in OUR White House makes it all the worse. On the other hand, Dennis Michael Lynch deserves huge kudos for the work he does with our Veterans. In case you’re unfamiliar with him, he has been an entrepreneur since the age 18, and operated an array of businesses and employed over a thousand people.  He is the Founder of TV360 Media; who produce and distribute digital videos and films. And feeds Thanksgiving dinner to hungry Vets. You can learn more about … Continue reading

Thanksgiving Day 2013

Today is the day we gather, hopefully with friends and family to celebrate that which we feel we have been blessed with, or by.   Have PLENTY of THIS. Followed by LOTS of THIS.   Or, enjoy THIS. (Of course, here in Michiruit, we have the Lions, so this part won’t be on MY schedule).   ME, after Photo # 1.  Along with THESE two clowns….. ‘Nuff said, eh ?     Just thought I’d share a few of the things I am grateful for, and a second list of blessings I’d like to see. So, in order of importance … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — November 28, 2013

Thanksgiving in 2022

“Winston, come into the dining room, it’s time to eat,” Julia yelled to her husband. “In a minute, honey, it’s a tie score,” he answered.  Actually Winston wasn’t very interested in the traditional holiday football game between Detroit and Washington. Ever since the government passed the Civility in Sports Statute of 2017, outlawing tackle football for its “unseemly violence” and the “bad example it sets for the rest of the world,” Winston was far less of a football fan than he used to be. Two-hand touch wasn’t nearly as exciting. Yet it wasn’t the game that Winston was uninterested in. … Continue reading
