Thanksgiving around the world

We'll be off with friends and family today. In one sense, I hope you are reading this tomorrow - and not spending the day on the web. We have much to give thanks for, and those of you who read (and especially who take the time to comment) are on the list of things we're thankful for. Go, eat, socialize!
