Thanksgiving is a true American holiday.  I discovered this while trying to explain it to someone new to the country.  It isn't a religious holiday, a saint's day or anything like that.  It doesn't mark the day some big treaty was signed or an important battle was fought.  It doesn't really mark anything.  It's just a day when we are supposed to stop for a moment and give thanks for all that we have, although with all the hoopla of traveling and preparing food, sometimes the giving thanks does seem to take a back seat.

While my lifelong anglophilia has led me to study the lives and reigns of all the monarchs of England, I must confess that I have had little interest in anybody after Edward VII abdicated in the 1920s.   I did not care about Charles and Di's marital problems any more than I care about Brad's and Angelina's - I didn't know them, I wasn't planning to invite them to any dinner parties, so their ups and downs had no effect on my life.

I can't imagine what the Hillary Clinton supporters are going to do when Donald Trump is sworn in as president on Jan. 20, 2017.  They are in such denial about the election that they aren't making sense.

The recent decision by the Greensboro City Council not to allow the development of land on Lake Brandt Road just south of the marina, in the grand scheme of things, is not a game changer.

Above is a photo of corruption in Greensboro.  Maybe in Greensboro we should be proud that this is the level of corruption that we have in municipal government, but it is still corruption, even if it is small.

When it comes to the whole basic essence of my life, in the end I'm trying to do one thing and one thing only: make it into heaven.
