Well, looks like we are about ready for the Thanksgiving Holiday and while it may seem overdone and repetitive, this is the official time to give thanks for the blessings in our lives
and to maybe, just for a little while, discount the misgivings, the wrong turns, the mistakes and especially, any and all ungratefulness that was exhibited by me or anyone else, in the last few months.

It is somewhat easy to get overwhelmed with bad news, a lack of good economic news or how tough life can be, and it is easy to overlook all that we have to be thankful for. For sure, just about everything in one's life can stand some improvement, from health to income, to security to
a lack of insecurity and to prosperity. What does this all mean?

No one seems to appreciate their health, until you lose yours or see it being lost in others you care about. Nothing is more important or as valuable, as you cannot seem to buy good health
and to get it, is an everyday battle and then, it can also be day to day. Lets all give thanks that
we have the health we have and that we have the right and ability to make it better, next week
and next month.

As far as prosperity goes, I am hopeful that simply, times get better for all of us who have sacrificed just to get to this point, in this recession. At the same time, I only wish that those who
have prospered during this difficult economic period, like the monopolistic carriers.....and the oil firms who saw no declines......and perhaps the lawyers....who make on other's miseries.......will get some of what we all got so we can all share better and be more empathetic towards each other.

I thankful that while life is difficult, there is always tomorrow and the hope that lawyers will be nice people, the price of gas will drop 25% and that we end the practice of closed markets and monopolistic firms, and o'h yea, that firms like Amex, who do not want to speak to their customers, lose their customers to a firm that will.

Most of all, I look forward to some time off and some football, and of course, all the carbs you can eat in one day......and some turkey.

Thanks to all of you for another year and have a great turkey day and see you next week.
