Thanksgiving: A Wonderful Day

There is nothing like enjoying a Thanksgiving day with friends and family. People gather from near and far to spend the holiday weekend together. It is a time filled with good company, good food, and enjoying one another and the gifts of abundance in our lives. What do you remember about Thanksgiving day growing up? I remember walking up lazily and quicklky coming up to the kitchen to find my mom working away at preparing food for our feast and my dad and brother already gone hunting for the morning. I had no real idea how to cook, yet each year on Thanksgiving morning I found myself washing my hands and preparing to help my mom make our family feast.....Read On

Thanksgiving - Understanding The Holiday

 Thanksgiving to most folks means family and friends and Turkey, or maybe beer and football. Many do not know or even care about the significence of the Holiday. Way back in the 1600's a group of people who were members of the English Separatist Church (Puritan's) in England fled their homeland to escape religious persecution. They boarded a ship and sailed to Holland in the Netherlands. In Holland the people enjoyed a brief time free from the religious persecution they faced back in England, but they soon became frustrated with the Dutch peoples bad morals and what they considered sinful lifestyles.....Read On

Thanksgiving Menu Idea: Crispy Deep Fried Turkey

Thanksgiving is celebrated in a number of traditions around the globe.. In America, it is a time we put aside to give thanks for all the things that are important to us and pay homage to an exceptional dinner with an afternoon of football watching and shouting at the television screen (at least that is what you do if you live in Detroit). In other areas of the country, friends and families actually do things together including playing board games, playing catch or any type of other activities that can be enjoyed by young and old alike. Other traditions are to get the men together on the front porch to talk about the current basketball season or about their new cars.....Read On

Thanksgiving - What Were the Pilgrims Thankful For

It is impossible to ponder those brave Pilgrims, our forefathers, risking life and limb and enduring the perils of the sea, the unknown, starvation and deprivation of every sort without wondering about the very strong reasons they were so willing to face these perils and hardships. Discovering their reasons also provided answers to how the first Thanksgiving came about. The Pilgrims gave thanks because they saw the promise of their quest near at hand and in some small way at the harvest time of that first year it looked like their dream had gotten itself underway.....Read On

Thanksgiving - A Time to Be Realistic With Your Weight

Do you feel you can't enjoy Thanksgiving and manage your weight at the same time? I've found that many people use this 'either or' approach to losing weight, particularly at holiday times. But it doesn't have to be like that. There is a way of enjoying Thanksgiving yet still being aware of your weight and your eating and exercise habits. When a holiday period such as Thanksgiving approaches, there's often the temptation to abandon the idea of losing weight, probably because at such times you feel you're fighting a losing battle to maintain your weight. However, the healthy eating and exercise habits you've been building up can still be adhered to....Read On

Surviving Thanksgiving Dinner

When you were a child, this was the time of year you couldn’t wait for. The holiday season, from Halloween all the way through New Year’s Day, seemed like one long feast for your eyes and taste-buds. And, of course, the anticipation of Santa’s visit was the fuel that kept you giddy, the whole time. Now, you’re grown, with small children of your own, and the season seems more like one long military operation: "OK, we survived Halloween. Now, let’s plan our assault on Thanksgiving." You hope your mother will offer to handle Turkey Day; you try dropping not-so-subtle hints, but she’s unsympathetic and doesn’t take the bait. "I’m the grandmother, now," she points out, "I did my time. We’re coming to your house....Read On

What Happened After The First Thanksgiving?

Various stories of the Pilgrims' first Thanksgiving exist. Some are conflicting while others have been greatly embellished. But, everyone concurs that the first winter at Plymouth was brutal, and deadly, with half of the colony losing their lives. It is not my intention to prove or disprove some of the stories told about that first Thanksgiving. Instead, I hope to share with you a story you may not be familiar with. While there are many stories that have emerged around that first Thanksgiving, you may not have ever heard what you are about to read. It is more than a story. It is based on accounts from the diary of William Bradford, the first governor of Plymouth.....Read On

Why Thanksgiving Is Hands-Down The Best Holiday

The Thanksgiving season is upon us and just a few days from now, most US citizens will be traveling too far on the worst travel day of the year, to see family they'd rather not spend an afternoon with and will likely see again in another month, and eating far more than they should of some of the best food they've ever tasted on what is a uniquely American holiday. And while the cynics among us have hit a fever pitch with their decrying of the commercialization and corporate marketing rollouts that have been growing in waves for the last decades, it remains that Thanksgiving is a top holiday for many US citizens.....Read On

A Parent's Guide to Online Gaming

The internet touches every aspect of your children's lives. Where you might look up an unknown word in a dictionary, your kids are more likely to use dictionary.com. Where you use the telephone, they use instant messenger. An even greater difference can be found in how they play games. Where the games of their parent's generation may have involved a board, cards, or at their most sophisticated a console system, the games your children play on the net can be far more complex....Read On

A Sudoku Strategy Or Just A Puzzle

I never realized that I had a Sudoku Strategy until I looked around the Internet. It is surprising to think how such a simple game has built up such a huge following and is taken so seriously. Just a 9 square grid, where you place the numbers 1-9 without repeating them horizontally, vertically or in any of the 9 squares. It sounds easy but the puzzles come with varying difficulties. Apparently I use more than one Sudoku Strategy. I start out by looking for the 3 x 3 grids or lines with the most numbers already....Read On

A Brief History of Pizza

Visitors to Italy prior to the 1880s would have a difficult time relating to what passed for pizza at the time. Although the pies had been made in the area for centuries, many ingredients considered essential by modern Americans were absent. First of all, tomatoes were not native to Europe. It was not until the discovery of the Americas and the discovery of tomatoes that it was even possible to add tomato sauce. Even then, it took many years to convince the people that tomatoes were not poisonous. A white sauce was used as a topping until....Read On
