T-Day, the day we celebrate the arrival of the Christian Right on our shores. If the Indians would have been smart they'd've stopped them at the shore and killed them all, thereby doing the Americas and the British a big favor, not mention keeping small pox and the European proclivity for land snatching at bay. Imagine if you will an North American continent that was Bush free - and they say Utopia is impossible to reach.

Thank You for taking care of my ancestors back then

though I wonder if their culture was really so utopian as we all like to believe... but hey we are ditching Bush soon! Something to be thankful for indeed.

Happy Thanksgiving Diane!

Why, thank you!

Thanksgiving is reported rather than celebrated on this side of the world, what with it being spring and all.

FINALLY! An ACCURATE image of the first Thanksgiving. And one that confirms what most historians suspected: they all hung out ON THE SAME SIDE of the table, a la "The Last Supper". Also, note another key detail: the "fixins'" were placed UNDER THE TABLE, per local Marmoset tribal custom. In fact, this is where the phrase "under the table" originated. Only later on was the negative connotation (indicating money secretly changing hands without the government's knowledge) attached.

Ok Boney my love, you can bring the wine but aren't you a little late.

You have missed out on my pumpkin pie and the cranberry sauce I made, which was nice of me 'cause I dont eat turkey. ♥

The imagery...It was just my hope that the pilgrims and the native Americans could live in harmony in an ideal world, a common ground at the table of peace; but then I am an idealist. ♥
