Everyone have a happy and safe Thanksgiving. Also to those of you living where it is not celebrated. :)

This will be the last one for me, so cheers!

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Wishing you have a happy Thanksgiving, despite i'm not American :)

Αν ανάμεσα σ’ όλον τον κόσμο,
νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

Thank you Ghostdancer. We don't have Thanksgiving in the UK because we don't have a great deal to be thankful for! (Except English Ale)

Cheers, old chap. One of these fine days I'm gonna get off my fat butt and come across the pond for a holiday. I've been most places East of the Greenwich Meridian but never West. I hear you have a few horses over there too!

And I was over there back in 1987. Yes, plenty of horses. My sister has some.

Nope...utterly incorrect. The first Thanksgiving (which was actually a harvest festival) saw the Native Americans and the Pilgrims getting along rather well actually.

See link: http://www.pilgrimha...rg/f_thanks.htm

BTW, I live in Plymouth MA and it's a pretty big holiday here.
