On the Friday where citizens trample each other to buy new stuff the day after we all gave thanks for the things we have, I felt this video was a good perspective of our daily “problems” in the United States and a good reminder of all the blessings we enjoy.
I like good food as much as the next guy. Well, actually probably more than the next guy, especially if pie is involved, but I’m starting to wonder if the effort required to make a “proper” Thanksgiving meal is actually worth it. We are having all sorts of people over for Thanksgiving this year. My
On Monday, Joe A. posted his very calm feelings on why little kids don’t need cell phones. It reminded me of a video my wife showed me of Louis C. K. on Conan. He makes some very interesting points. Enjoy and have a great weekend.
