Faith & Family / Re: Thanksgiving
« Last post by John Florida on Today at 10:11:49 AM »
A friend died this morning and we were at the hospital and took our other mutual friend home to our house for the day.  They were both invited to feast with us anyway.

At the hospital, the female, 26 year-old chaplain asked what we were about doing after we left, and I said "we're going home and stuffing the turkey".

It's been a day.


  Sorry Pan, not only did you lose a friend but it had to be on a holiday so that you can be reminded every year.  I buried an uncle on 911 and it never goes away.

Sorry to hear about your friend Pan.  Not a good way to start the holiday season.

Just tried to hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving, but got a page come up when I tried to send it -- '400 page not sending' , and it didn't go through ? Won't try to repeat everything, but hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Oldest living afterward.  Mary Allerton came over when 6years old and lived to 83+ and last living Mayflower passenger.
Oldest to make the crossing - John Ragdale - in his 70's
Stephen Hopkins was probably the one you thought had been to Virginia earlier. and most of those crossing for religious reasons left fropm Leiden, Holland

“It is true that when you run to succeed a two-term president of your own party, you have a historical headwind blowing against you,” Clinton told Hewitt.

Tell that BS to Bush Sr.

Not if you succeed a successful president.  Then you're a shoe in.   That's why Bush Sr. got in and Hillary didn't.  Reagan was successful and Obama was a failure.    Bush Sr. was a failure,  that's why he got turned out.   That's actually quite rare to not get a second term now,  even Barry managed to pull it off even after failure after failure.

It only looks like a headwind because most presidents are failures for the most part.

   Didn't hurt that we had nobody running against him.

But Franken, Conyers et al...get a pass, huh?!

Yup,  along with Bill Clinton.

 I'm not sure they got a pass just yet. Conyers used illegal money from the sounds of it.  Franken is not popular with the libs and women keep coming out.  The first one happened before he was senator(he stole his election) and the rest after those are the ones that might do him in.
