Happy Thanksgiving

I may get scolded for this since it isn't a questions, but I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Take a few moments today to remember all the good things you have in your life. Most of them are unearned. The old saying "but for the grace of God go I" is very true. Your life could be a lot worse that what it is. You might not have a computer and you might not be using Slackware. And let's all remember Pat V. today.

Happy Thanksgiving.

I hope everyone enjoys a safe holiday, partaking of "Turkey Day" and doing what you will.

I'm thankful for my friends and family.
I'm thankful for Broadband (although only 256kbps) CD burners and the 50 and 100 CD-R Spindle.
I'm also thankful for my laptop since re-format time is just around the bend and my system restore disk will erase my Linux partitions (stupid NortonGhost restore disks).
I'm Thankful for Linux and the wonderful Community that comes with it. I'm thankful to God and the wonderful apptitude for computers he has blessed me with.
I am thankful for living in a house that's only 3 blocks away from the main branch of the local library.
I am thankful to live in a country blessed with Freedom.
And i am thankful for all the help I have received and hope to pay it back by providing help to others.

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays. May all you shopping days be filled with short lines, little shoving, and no fist fights.

Good thinking, might as well keep it all in one place.

Now that it's over, just for fun, does anyone have any interesting/funny/unusual Thanksgiving stories?

It snowed A LOT here, first snow of the season and we got about 4 inches. It warmed up today and is going to rain, possibly melt it all, but it's supposed to snow a lot more this weekend, so I'm looking forward to the first ski this Winter tomorrow! I got my fingers crossed!
