Pre Thanksgiving Open Thread

TalkLeft wishes you all a Happy Thanksgiving. Don't forget to check in with your local radio station to find out what time they will play Alice's Restaurant. It was November 28, 1965 that Arlo was convicted of littering in Stockbridge, MA. You can read the backstory here.

I will be busy setting up my new Desktop computer. I spent 8 hours Sunday reading up on every feature of every Dell and HP, I ended up with a great deal on a very powerful Dell. Of course, now comes the agony of transferring stuff over and hoping it works. I used a program last time and it caused a lot of problems, so this year I will do it by hand. My 2 GB hard drive is filled on the old one, and windows installer hasn't worked in year and a half --which means I haven't been able to add or remove any programs. Black Friday is definitely the day to do swap it out.

It's also that time of year to ask those of you who appreciate TalkLeft to send us a little thanks, via paypal or snailmail

I'll be back to normal schedule next week, my last day of an 8 day court run was today.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone. This is an open thread, all topics welcome. (Alice's Restaurant is below.)[More...]

    Went to purchase a turkey and prime rib was $7.99 lb.  We are coloring outside all the lines now.  No sweets at dinner either.

    so somebody has to be out there.  Thanks for being one of them.

    Oh, and we're having slow-cooked turkey, 250 degrees for 15 hours. The veggie is asparagus. No stuffing, no casserole, but we'll have pumpkin pie with the traditional ReddiWhip topping, and one Dutch Apple pie, served with Cookies and Cream ice cream.

    Dinner at my daughter's house tomorrow. Both grandsons will be in the city for Thanksgiving. Always a treat to talk to Nana's Boys. They will always be Nana's boys even though one will 20 in Dec. and the other will be 24 in Feb.

    Have no idea what will be on the menu but since I don't have to cook I'm not sure I really care. ;o)

    Hitting the road early in the morning headed for western PA.  I don't have to cook, so I am bringing a dessert and hope to see the Lions pull their heads out of their butts and beat the Bears!

    Very glad I'm not working this year.  There is nothing more miserable, IMO, than working on Thanksgiving.  Even Christmas was somehow not as bad.

    The family is gathering in Boston, so I won't have to travel far, which is good considering the cr@ppy weather.  Grateful to be close to home this time of year.  Looking forward to spending time with my sister and nephews who are visiting.

    A special shout out to those who are far from home and don't have any place to go for the holidays.  We usually take in a some strays but this year because of the weather a few of them are staying home.  So I guess right now I'm just extra thankful to be able to spend that time with my family, and am also especially grateful that I actually like my family :)
