Happy Thanksgiving

I know many of you do not celebrate Thanksgiving day on the 4th Thursday of November, but as it is the most non-partisan, secular holiday I can imagine, let me say that I give thanks for all of you and this site.  I hope you all have a wonderful day, wherever you are and whatever you are doing.


  • Happy Thanksgiving day to the Americans. Since my great (x9) grandmother was on the Mayflower, perhaps as an Australian I should consider celebrating it. Mary Chilton was 13 when she arrived, her father never stepped foot on land and died on the ship offshore, her mother soon after they landed. No siblings, she was then cared for by another family. Apparently half of the 102 passengers on the Mayflower had died by the end of the first winter. Tradition says she was the first female of the party to step foot on land. A world away from me across both ocean and time.

  • Happy Thanksgiving to you @MikeDerby
