Consider this an “Open Thread” for sharing thanks, football, family, and the like.

Let’s stay away from our pet peeves for one day.

I remain thankful that I was born and raised an American, and a Jew in a loving family – the second could not have happened without the first in most places in 1943.  I remain thankful for my family of choice as well as for my family of origin, and for my many friends.  As my grandfather said, “If you don’t have cancer and the Nazis aren’t kicking in your door, quit complaining.”  So I ain’t complaining.

Y’all have a fine holiday today.

  1. A very happy Thanksgiving to all of you! I’m thankful for so many things, but one of them is that I live in a time when I can make virtual friends through the internet that have the possibility of becoming friends in real life; I treasure the chances that I’ve had to meet some of you and hope to meet more of you in the coming year. May the best teams win today!

    Oh–and frist! Heh.

    Finally got a chance to read that Atlantic piece on women in STEM–very interesting. Thanks!


  3. Happy Thanksgiving to one and all! This year I’m extremely grateful to have our daughter here with us from CO. I am always thankful for family first and my dear and loving husband who told me just this morning, “Happy Thanksgiving you turkey!”

    Hope you all have a wonderful day!

    BTW, it’s supposed to be the hottest Thanksgiving here in a hundred years………we’re putting on our suits later and going for a swim! I’m so lucky!


Be kind, show respect, and all will be right with the world.
