Vacation time

This coming Thursday, Americans will be celebrating a holiday we call “Thanksgiving” (in memory of the early Europeans who said “Thank God there were actually some PEOPLE here who knew how to deal with the local climate!”). It’s going to be a hectic week for me due to some travel and other preparations for an extended family get-together, so blogging is going to range from sparse to non-existent this week. So have a nice week everyone, and I hope all you bloody Yanks have a great holiday, and I’ll see you all Dec. 1st.

Cheers.

    I think it’s a bit odd that the Thanksgiving story has focused so much on the Plymouth colony. Jamestown, Kent Island, and others are older. Jamestown would not have survived if the colonists had not borrowed the technology of tree girdling from the Native Americans. You can kill a tree by scraping a circle in its bark and plant hills of corn supported by its dying roots. The dying girdled trees can be harvested whenever you have extra time.
