    Happy Thanksgiving

    What are your plans for Thanksgiving?

    This year we are having 'Thanksgiving' on Friday, instead of Thursday. Which is good and bad. Its good because I'll get to watch all the football games. Its bad because I won't get to watch football on Friday, so I'll have to deal with my family without the welcome distraction of football. Ughh.

    Have a good one everybody.
    Go RAMS!

    Heading homeward bound to Newburyport, for dinner with the fam.

    All the nieces & nephews will be there, plus the littlest addition, who's 16 months now.
    My parents are getting pretty old now, and i think i really need to appreciate these times we have together.
    It's amazing how fast life goes by...

    BEFORE YOU EAT YOUR BIRD, JUST REMEMBER THE TRUTH ABOUT THANKSGIVING!! AND THE LIE THAT IT IS!!


    In 1621 the myth of thanksgiving was born. The colonists invited Massasoit, chief of the Wampanoags, to their first feast as a follow up to their recent land deal. Massasoit in turn invited 90 of his men, much to the chagrin of the colonists. Two years later the English invited a number of tribes to a feast “symbolizing eternal friendship.” The English offered food and drink, and two hundred Indians dropped dead from unknown poison.


    The first day of thanksgiving took place in 1637 amidst the war against the Pequots. 700 men, women, and children of the Pequot tribe were gathered for their annual green corn dance on what is now Groton, Connecticut. Dutch and English mercenaries surrounded the camp and proceeded to shoot, stab, butcher and burn alive all 700 people. The next day the Massachusetts Bay Colony held a feast in celebration and the governor declared “a day of thanksgiving.”


    In the ensuing madness of the Indian extermination, natives were scalped, burned, mutilated and sold into slavery, and a feast was held in celebration every time a successful massacre took place. The killing frenzy got so bad that even the Churches of Manhattan announced a day of “thanksgiving” to celebrate victory over the “heathen savages,” and many celebrated by kicking the severed heads of Pequot people through the streets like soccer balls.
    The proclamation of 1676 announced the first national day of thanksgiving with the onset of the Wampanoag war, the very people who helped the original colonists survive on their arrival.
