If you have "no place to go," come here!


I'll keep it simple: I have a lot to be thankful for -- everyone who helped out with my plumbing disaster. You all really gave me a lift. Thanks!

Thanksgiving linky goodness below:

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite Holiday because it's about just what its name implies -- and food, which is one of those basic, low-on-Maslow's hierarchy things we hope to be thankful for every day. Not a shopping stimulus like some other holidays.

Now, the recipes? The memories? Readers?

NOTE And in the realm of the traditional, It's a wonderful life (nice idea, all the YouTubes). And, of course, Alice's Restaurant. Or a live blog from Brooklyn.

UPDATE The Classic. By which I don't mean the Detroit Lions. And then, of course, there's William S. Burroughs (via). And Bush's final turkey pardoning. Speaking of turkeys, ouch! Double ouch!!

UPDATE And Sean-Paul says that if he can raise $500 for Cambodian charities (he's travelling in Asia), he'll eat a tarantula for Thanksgiving! Although Oprah's now into shared sacrifice. Straws in the wind -- but, so far, no bricks.

UPDATE I should also say, again, how thankful I am to the anonymous usability expert who redesigned the site. That was a Christmas present, too!

UPDATE Digby posts a cake recipe. And Anglachel confronts the weather in Sunny California.
