I just wanted to wish all my retro brothers and sisters a great Thanksgiving! This is a great place to come to and hang out, and I've gotten to 'know' many of you over the last several years. I will be holding up a cyber-toast to you all later (it's coffee time now. ) and wish you and your families all the best today.

A Happy Thanksgiving to all.










George Washington’s 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation




Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with gratef More..ul hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness :”

Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted’ for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have show kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand, at the city of New York, the 3d day of October, A.D. 1789.



Enjoy the day and be thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

I just wanted to share a recipe with the rest of the horde for cranberry sauce that is most excellent:

1 12 ounce bag of frozen cranberries
1 cup of orange juice
1 cup of brown or white sugar
Dash of cinnamon
Dash of cloves***

Mix the sugar and orange juice in a medium sauce pan on the stove at a medium setting.

Stir in the cranberries and cook until the cranberries start to pop (about 10 minutes).

Add cinnamon and cloves and mix in after the cranberries have popped. The sauce will thicken as it cools.
