Happy Thanksgiving


This beautiful painting by Gustave Courbet (1819-1877) should remind everyone that tomorrow we eat, drink, are merry (maybe), or solemnly thankful, but at any rate, it is a true American holiday, even if the painting is by a Frenchman.

While we all have much to be thankful for, I have to admit this is one year I'd rather forget. Beset by unexpected problems since early Spring, I am thinking more about sleeping than eating. But undaunted, I shall find the strength to dig in.

Enjoy the day. Posting will continue at a leisurely pace.

Yes indeed, have a serene Thanksgiving, in spite of the "terrible year" you have had ; I think there is always something to be thankful for, even in this topsy-turvy world of ours.

@ zazie

Thank you, zazie.

I see that all of Sarkozy's attempts to appease the Chinese have failed. They are furious at him for meeting with the Dalai Lama, after all this time.

Will he ever learn that appeasing the violent and the totalitarian ideologues never helps save anyone or anything?

The same is true of all the appeasemnt measures he has taken in North Africa and at home in the treatment of criminals - "Love's Labors Lost".
