    Default Happy Thanksgiving

    THE HARVEST MOON
    by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
    It is the Harvest Moon! On gilded vanes
    And roofs of villages, on woodland crests
    And their aerial neighborhoods of nests
    Deserted, on the curtained window-panes
    Of rooms where children sleep, on country lanes
    And harvest-fields, its mystic splendor rests!
    Gone are the birds that were our summer guests,
    With the last sheaves return the laboring wains!
    All things are symbols: the external shows
    Of Nature have their image in the mind,
    As Howers and fruits and falling of the leaves;
    The song-birds leave us at the summer's close,
    Only the empty nests are left behind,
    And pipings of the quail among the sheaves.
    "Unvaccinated people are potential variant factories," Dr. William Schaffner, a professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases at Vanderbilt University Medical Center,

    Nice. Thanks.

    To all a happy Thanksgiving

    when I have food, help me to remember the hungry. When I have a home, help me to remember those who have no home at all. When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer. And remembering, help me to destroy my complacency, bestir my compassion, and be concerned enough to help, by word and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted. Amen.

    I am ever so thankful to myself for rising above the nastiness of this forum.

    I am so glad I decided to have this super-aggressive Ignore Policy.

    I like treating myself well.

    It was a conscious decision to stay above the level of attacking people and stick to attacking arguments.

    This leaves the mind free of petty personal attacks, and makes it easier to focus on the crux of politics.

    Loving it!

    (would like to see more people joining this idea)

    Maybe instead of shopping in crowds on black Friday, and turning it into a super-spreader event, maybe stay home and watch a Thanksgiving Classic.

    Alice's Restaurant is more than a song. It is a full length movie! Complete with Officer Obie, the 27 8x10 color glossy photographs, and the judge with the seeing-eye dog.

    And it's on UTube.

    Enjoy...

    I went to see this film in the early 70s, yeh that's right, far out man. I saw it again a few years back and couldn't believe just how dated it had become. I actually learnt that song on the guitar a while back, it's not a bad choice for learning fingerpicked country blues/ragtime style.

    PoliBullshitter is obviously still stuck in that era, somebody ought to tell her that Haight-Ashbury was a very long time ago.
