It's not about fun. Thanksgiving is a day to look inward. A time to do some soul searching and decide whether the inevitable belly ache/heartburn/overstuffed feeling is worth the gluttony of the moment.
For me, the answer is an unequivocal YES!
I am appropriately reassured.

I thought Thanksgiving was a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year?



Yes, it has become a day of gluttony, when we prepare and eat lots of stuff we donít ordinarily consume the rest of the year. And of course there is the leftovers, turkey sammiches for a week, turkey soup, and plenty of leftover stuffing.



Mmmmmm . . . . . . . stuffing.
Do you do the same again on Christmas Day?

Sort of.

Except it is usually a goose, or a spiral cut honey ham.

Or maybe prime rib.

And fudge.

And candy canes.

Peppermint candy canes.

Oh yeah.

Happy turkey day to all our friends in America.

It is a happy day for the turkeys that have lived to see the day.

I think you’d be surprised how many of these moulded sections can still be made.
Fairbanks lumber in Toronto still has a lot of the original shaper knives. They bought up the knives from many of the old school cabinet shops as they shut down. In some of the shops I worked in we had drawers and drawers of shaper knives, we could match almost anything.

It's a cabinet maker with a shaper you want.

As I get older, my flexibility becomes more reduced, and, coupled with the artificial hip, I can hardly reach my toes to cut the nails.

So a few weeks ago I dropped in at a local ďspaĒ, and had a pedicure.

What a treat! More than just trimming the toenails, they place your feet in a warm tub of water, an exfoliating cream is massaged from the calves to the toes, there is a hot stone massage, the feet and calves are wrapped in moistened hot towels, and finally a moisturizing cream is massaged into the skin.

The spa I went to is run by three Vietnamese women, possibly mother, daughter, granddaughter.

I went back Tuesday for a second go, and like it so much it is going to become a regular thing, every couple of weeks.

We Canuckians also celebrate Thanksgiving, but in October. Our Thanksgiving meals are very similar, centered around the roast turkey. Xmas is also very similar. I do like my turkey, mashed potatoes, holobchis, pie, etc...also gravy with little meataballs and mushrooms floating in the gravy. I'm getting real hungry.

Btw, best wishes to Americans on this Thanksgiving day.

On another food related topic, we went to our favourite bakery to pick up a few weeks worth of rye bread, ball park hot dog buns, etc.

While in the bakery store to pick up our order, the aroma of this bakery caused my knees to buckle, and I also started to salivate.

Among their products were cookies...oatmeal and date cookies. Big ones. Freshly baked that morning. I'm supposed to be careful about my intake of sweets and ordinarily I am.

But resistance was futile in this case.

I bought two. Ate them on the way home.

Not only did these cookies satisfy my hunger, but triggered my brain to release endorphins. These exceptional tasting oatmeal cookies , produced within me, a mild euphoria.

Absolutely delicious. IMHO, you can't beat a privately owned bakery.

Just like the standard train gauge for tracks is based on the distance between wheels on Roman carts, which were all the same because that dealt with the problem of the ruts worn in the road by everyone else.

And in turn it probably influenced the size of shipping pallets which led to the width of the cargo hold in the 747, which led to the size of heavy lift aircraft interiors which now influences the size of shippable vehicles and there to armour option available to designers of US Army vehicles.
Sort of. But the true story is even more interesting. See, for instance: Are U.S. Railroad Gauges Based on Roman Chariots? | Snopes.com

Aren't they lucky? Two feast days, not far apart!

Happy Thanksgiving! (Said no turkey ever)
