Happy Thanksgiving – A great tradition started in Texas!
« on: November 22, 2012, 05:06:58 AM »
I hope all of my fellow U.S. forum members enjoy the holiday. We Texans are proud to have the rest of the country adapt one of our celebrations!
The first recorded Thanksgiving holiday, celebrated within our borders, occurred in what is now modern day El Paso 40 years before the folks up in Plymouth. Just saying…

I disagree, Joe.  Thanksgiving started in Seattle in 1582.  It was celebrated here as a pagan sacrifice to the god of Government. 

Oh, wait.  That wasn't 1382.  It's modern reality.

My bad.

You might be interested in the ten-book prepper novel series called 299 Days.  I, like, wrote it and stuff.  Prepper Press is publishing it.  Seriously.  Check out www.299Days.com.

Happy and safe Thanksgiving to all.

I was listening to a radio talk show yesterday and many people were calling in on the subject as to "what do we have to be thankful for".  Most of course were positive, some were negative based on the current conditions of our country and individuals out of work and what not.  One guy called in and pretty much summed it up.  He reminded everyone of all that we Americans have to be thankful for (and take for granted).  It was a long list which included many examples of what current technologies have offered which included the reminder of what our parents and grandparents had to deal with compared to our own generation.  Tons of luxuries were of course on the list too.  The best example he kept referring back to was paved roads, reminding us just what that alone affords us, and that many countries still today don't have paved roads and have to deal with some pretty nasty conditions during wet weather.

If your not thankful today than you are either too lazy to make a change, or feel entitled to have more than you deserve.  Don't dwell on the bad things, think about the good things.
“There are few things more pathetic than those who have lost their curiosity and sense of adventure, and who no longer care to learn.”
