Thanksgiving break time

As every good blogger knows, web traffic plummets on holidays. On major holidays it falls precipitously. So I'm joining the exodus and am going into re-runs until Monday. So I want to wish everybody out there a great Thanksgiving. To everybody outside of the US, happy week of 22 through 26 November.

But back to everybody in the US for a sec.




Rather than joining in on the March to Armageddon on Friday, why not try something a little more civilized and a little more meaningful? Why not spend some quality time talking to someone or some ones you love? Why not stay home and make something with your family or friends? Why not buy nothing?

  1. I wholeheartedly agree. I'm blessed enough to be able to take Friday off of work this year, so I'll be relaxing at home...buying nothing.

  2. Easy enough for us - we'll be working on the house.

    I hope you two have a wonderful Turkey Day filled with family, friends, and great food!

    Raina: Thanks and many more good wishes headed back your way from here. Is the Cox household ready for Hanukkah next week?

  4. Might modify this to buy only from locally owned businesses within walking distance. Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Did you see the crazy bitch on Huffington Post who started camping out in front of Best Buy...yesterday...so she could be the first person in the store on Friday? Of course she's camped out in St. Pete, in front of the store by the mall...

  7. Have a good holiday Paul! We're hosting Thanksgiving this year and are having 12 people. I made a mincemeat pie today which will be the first I've had in years.
    I'm spending all day friday doing client photos and might start making christmas gifts on the sewing machine in between eating leftovers and naps.

  8. Kevin: The Huffington Post is a week late, as usual. That crazy bitch has been out there since last week.

    Melody: That sounds idyllic. I've never made a mincemeat pie. I've always wanted to make mincemeat though. Yum. Beef suet and currants...

    Have a terrific Thanksgiving Mel, your friendship's definitely one of the things I'm thankful for.

  10. Thanks Brenda, even though it's not a holiday in Canada today it is here and I'll use this as an excuse to tell you that I'm grateful you've become a fixture around here. Your an important member of the community and I appreciate your being here. Thank you.
