Harvest time and home

Our American Thanksgiving is one of few iconic American holidays. It means family, thanks, gratefulness, harvest time, and home. We celebrate the sharing of the first Thanksgiving, native American turkeys, cranberries, corn, and pumpkin.

And whether we're with a large group of family and friends, or celebrate in a simple way, it's definitely time to be thankful for our blessings and the harvest that we share.

  2. And a reminder that "there is no place like home." That's been the undercurrent theme since Day 1. (Think about it, did the Pilgrims go back to England to celebrate, or travel south to Florida ... No, they stayed put right on the rock!)

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
