Enjoy Your family and Friends

Happy Thanksgiving to all.
We really have it easy today,
what a scary trip the Pilgrims made,
only half survived the trip.

  Walter Rauschenbusch
O God, we thank you for this earth, our home;
For the wide sky and the blessed sun,
For the salt sea and the running water,
For the everlasting hills
And the never-resting winds,
For trees and the common grass underfoot.
We thank you for our senses
By which we hear the songs of birds,
And see the splendor of the summer fields,
And taste of the autumn fruits,
And rejoice in the feel of the snow,
And smell the breath of the spring.
Grant us a heart wide open to all this beauty;
And save our souls from being so blind
That we pass unseeing
When even the common thornbush
Is aflame with your glory,
O God our creator,
Who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

I have been to Plymoth rock,
go if you ever are near there.
We had dinner there and
 saw the village

(actress) family How
wonderful, she was surprised.
Saw that on TV today.
Just at Thanksgiving too.
I found this interesting
The Pilgrims had encountered the free-rider problem. 
Under the arrangement of communal property one might
 reasonably suspect that any additional effort might merely
 substitute for the lack of industry of others. And these “others”
 might well be able-bodied, too, but content to take advantage
 of the communal ownership by contributing less than their fair share.
 As we shall see, it is difficult to solve this problem without dividing
 property into individual or family-sized units. 
And this was the course of action that William Bradford wisely took.

I am making
these, brown sugar or maybe Ginger glazed, Hummmm!

I better get busy and start prep
Tuesday. Clean house Monday
Have a fun Thanksgiving and watch that

Everyday another problem.

There is trouble brewing at the ports on
 the west coast.
Truckers long shoremen, all asking for
more benifits. Big distruptions.

U.S agriculture shippers yesterday urged President Obama
 to “intervene personally” by bringing in a federal mediators to help
 reach a U.S. West Coast labor contract deal and 
end slowdowns at West Coast ports.
Much congestion, and if they don'y get the products
out there is a fee to pay. More expense. 
Merry Christmas, the cost will go up because of extra shipping charges.
Retailers will now use air cargo .
because of time limits and getting items here for holidays.
 “They both lose in a strike or a lockout, and they know it.”
 As the dockworkers and employers negotiate, about 
120 truck drivers protest.  ...
The drivers claim that the trucking companies have been 
misclassifying them as "independent contractors"
 in order to make it impossible, under federal labor laws,
 to unionize. The companies routinely deduct huge amounts from drivers' 
paychecks for fuel, parking, insurance and other expenses, 
a practice that the drivers say is wage theft. 
After drivers pay for the cost of renting and maintaining their trucks,
 their pay is often below the minimum wage. I am starting to hate watching
 the news. 
 Now meet the press, well I think giving a free pass is
 not good it shows we are weak. That's waving a flag come on over they 
won't do anything. 
About those cheap illegals doing farm work. 
Hey as soon as they are legal they want $20 an hour. and by the way 
Lettuce prices are out of sight now. 
How about all those insurance companies that will make them buy.
 Are they behind this bill? It's a country out of control.  
Think I'll post about TV and movie stars. 
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving.
