Oh, I'm glad we have moved on to Thanksgiving. I am currently planning ours with my two daughters who live here in Florida. It's certainly my favorite holiday when it comes to the food. I love dressing more than dessert. But I also do love pumpkin pie :-)

I did, I learned and applied what Jesus actually taught. I was NEVER taught those teachings in any trinity religion. Those teachers are paid to teach that religions dogma-first, and little of what Jesus taught.

I live just a few miles north of Panama City in a town called Lynn Haven. There are piles and piles of downed trees stacked up in piles up and down every road in this area. Many of them are being taken to a chipper to be turned into mulch. I think we need to have a publicized drive to plant a lot of trees back as soon as possible. I will definitely be getting a living tree for Christmas this year. I have a gorgeous Norfolk pine from several Christmases ago. It has grown so much in two years. It still lives in a pot. I can't plant it outside because it wouldn't survive a hard frost which we do get here a couple of times a year.

Tree lover here, too.

If there is such a drive, can you let us know?

People that celebrate Thanksgiving are going to hell if they don't at least kill they own bird, last year all I could get in range of was a crow, so we had crow, we aint no hypocrites eating caged birds where only one gets a pardon, eat crow or go home I say, I mean, if you can't get a turkey or a prairie chicken and there aint no doves or sparrows, eat crow,'' says I.''

Let's join together and save the turkeys this year, crow really aint that bad if you got mustard and garlic.

Yeah, it tastes a bit like the cross between bald eagle and parrot.

I wanna know why the turkey is so honored as to get a presidential pardon, and the chicken has no holy days? If I am what I eat, I must be a chicken, why should I honor a turkey, is a turkey any better than a chicken?

What about the beloved swine on Christmas? I don't see no pig getting a pardon.

This is all too much for me, a pumkin is honored, and even a Christmas ham is used as a sign of friendship and celebration but where is the chicken's recognition?

From now on, we must all have chicken on valentines day to honor and celebrate the chicken and we must all have hawaiian chicken with a rice pilaf in a very romantic dinner with wine in toasts and celebration for the great chicken...

The turkey was thankful, and chicken's run.
