    Happy Thanksgiving to all. Hope it's a great day, family, good friends, plenty of food. For all who are traveling this weekend - be safe, be well. I'm hitting the road in just a few minutes to be in family in Richmond.


    Hugs to all.

    When you're all thinking about what you are thankful for, be thankful that you're Americans. It could be much worse, you could be European! LOL.

    If it weren't for Europeans (and the charity of native Americans), there wouldn't be a 'thanksgiving' day, you silly girl.

    Anyway, enjoy your turkey, America. And don't forget to toast your mother country.

    I will. I am of Irish descent.

    Our forebears left your God-forsaken shores in search of freedom. And still they come. :lol: There are still more people lining up to come to America than any other nation on earth.

    Then why do you live in the UK?

    And the United Kingdom is your mother country, not the Republic of Ireland, which during the establishment of the thirteen colonies was a British possession.

    I know it hurts and I understand it's a thorn in your identity, but there's no escaping the fact that America was once a crown subject. I suggest you accept it rather than object to it.

    Hope everybody has a very blessed Thanksgiving and if you're really fortunate, maybe you will end up with the turkey gizzard!

    The original 13 colonies were British possessions.

    *ahem*

    You may not be aware, but there are 37 other states that were never British possessions.
