A Lot To Be Thankful For...

Today is Thanksgiving Day in the United States. While the modern interpretation of this day is to stuff one's face with food, watch football on TV in a food-induced coma, and then go to sleep early in order to be the first one in line at the local "big box" store to get a "thing" at a heavily discounted price, the origins of the holiday have to do with a group of immigrants who were just happy to be alive, have enough food to share with the natives, and who were thankful for simple things.

I'm thankful for a lot. I'm quite healthy, both of my elderly parents are still alive, and my wife is still happily employed at an aerospace company and will be retiring in a few years. I'm blessed to work with a number of absolutely wonderful people, especially the man who is working hard to keep you entertained and informed while I'm on a long vacation -- Dennis Sellers. I thoroughly enjoy the discussions with Dennis and Marty Edwards on our Patron Podcast, and I love being able to see new technologies in action every day.

I'm most thankful for the readers of this website, who are making it possible for a couple of old tech bloggers to make a modest living doing what we love. Thank you, and please accept my most sincere best wishes for the beginning of the holiday season.
