Happy Thanksgiving

To all my friends and readers … have a happy and joyous thanksgiving. Be safe and well as you remember that the current financial crisis will pass, politicians can be thrown out of office and crooks will eventually receive their just deserts.

Remember that we live in the best country on the face of this Earth and even the poorest among us lives a life which is often far richer and less filled with strife than most inhabitants of other nations.

You may want to take a moment and say a private prayer of thanks to the men and women of the armed services who have sacrificed so much in order to preserve the liberties and freedoms which we now enjoy.


And above all – do not push the button …


On this day, forget politics and finance. Tend to your family and friends.

Be well and be safe,
