Let’s make a Thanksgiving Vow this year-Updated

Updated on November 21, 2020.  The edicts below were issued in early November.  Now, the State has come down hard, and, basically, prohibited Thanksgiving.  All over this Nation, citizens are being told that they MAY NOT gather with their families for a big Thanksgiving celebration.  They MAY NOT travel to be with their loved ones, …

Open Letter to Starbucks Corporate

I remember that, recently, you shut down all your stores to give your "partners" (employees in stores) some extra "sensitivity training".  This training was prompted by a little kerfuffle involving some freeloading black men, sitting around not buying anything, then asking to use the bathroom.  Admittedly, the employee involved could have been more circumspect, but …

A Bullet Dodged: Thanks Given

RushBabe dodged a bullet recently.  I had a health scare, which started in June with an itchy place on one shoulder.  Where it started was easy to remember, since it took place on the street in Leavenworth, when Hubby and I were there in June for the International Accordion Celebration. Gradually, that itchy place took …

Giving Thanks

I have a wealth of things to be thankful for this year.  No health problems, no home disasters, no natural disasters.  A promotion and big raise, and lots of praise at work, where I make a difference every day.  I am so fortunate to have been born in the United States of America, the very …

I wasn’t going to do a Thanksgiving post this year…

But it's just too important for me to miss.  We (hubby and I) have so much to be thankful for, this year and every year.  We both have been incredibly fortunate to have kept our jobs all through the financial crisis period after 2007, and even advanced.  Hubby will celebrate 38 years at Big Aerospace …

Born in the USA, and Grateful – Happy Thanksgiving

On the Thanksgiving holiday, we give thanks for all our blessings.  Here in the United States, Thanksgiving has been a national holiday since the 1860s.  Yes, in the midst of the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln declared the last Thursday of November Thanksgiving Day.  I want to declare how very grateful I am for having …

Properly Grateful…Joy of Giving

I like to think that I count my blessings every day, not just on Thanksgiving Day.  This year, I've had numerous occasions to reflect on the manifest blessings in my life, and my country.  I was fortunate to be born in the United States of America, which has, since its founding in the 18th Century, …

Thanksgiving

I subscribe to the RushBabe49 Properly Grateful Theory of Life.  Often throughout the year, I stop and think about how fortunate I am to live in this Greatest Nation on God's Green Earth.  By the accident of birth, I had upper-middle-class parents, in one of the most beautiful parts of this country (Pacific Northwest).  I …

Thanksgiving, 2013

http://www.twoifbytea.com/adventures/ Besides the usual things I have to be thankful for this year, you may add the above. Rush Limbaugh, my hero, has written a book for young people (first of a series), to show them the truth about the founding of America. Since the 1970's, public education in the United States has been basically …
