    Quote from LIhikers: “All this talk about cranberries was the reason I put dried cranberries in my oatmeal this morning,. hmmm good. Thanks ” Personally I enjoy them more dried in oatmeal or trail mix than the traditional Thanksgiving gel. I also like the juice which is supposed to be good for you.

    Quote from IMScotty: “All I can offer.... Years ago on a drive out west I camped one night along the Erie Canal path. That morning I walked a mile or two along it, it was pretty and flat, I enjoyed the history, I meant to get back someday hoping to bike some of it but I never did. That is all. ” Maybe you can hookup with LIHikers and knock a little of it out together.

    Quote from LIhikers: “Rain, snow, and ice made made our trip home an 11 hour drive. It didn't help that we got a little off course in both Ohio and New Jersey. Glad to be home, sitting still, and safe and sound. And I'm thankful to have seen our son, his wife, and her family. He's lucky, he got nice in-laws. ” I am sure his wife's family feels the same.

All I know is I don't have it, but I would like to figure it out. ” Perhaps you don't have it, but you sure have a lot more of it than I do! Thanks for sharing with us.

    Quote from SandyofPA: “Quote from Traffic Jam: “Quote from SandyofPA: “Funny thing, I just got some lightweight windblocker fleece to add a light jacket to my gear too. Mine will have a full zip front to allow me to wear it backwards with a pack on. I put a hook or snap at the collar, so I can put it on and take off as I heat up after a break. ” Do you have a favorite pattern or wing it? ” I have a Mcalls pattern from 2001 Father & Son fleece jacket, multi-sized, I use the boys large. ” I think …

    Quote from Rasty: “Quote from Astro: “Quote from Rasty: “I'm thankful that tomorrow is my first Thanksgiving not working in 32 years. ” So the burning question, are you still going to cook for yourself, or let someone else do the work this time? ” Going to mom's house ” That definitely sounds like a winner, and I am sure she will appreciate having you there!

    Quote from Astro: “Looking to swing by the Coca-cola Museum in Atlanta next week with my two college age sons. ” Really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it.

Commercials was great from both a business and culture perspective (middle son computer science major with international business minor, born in Singapore, speaks Chinese and Japanese and did internship in Japan this past summer, while youngest son busi…

    Quote from rhjanes: “For 2 years, I tried leaving the leaves. I'd mulched them twice once they were on the ground. After 2 years, I had dead spots on the yard where the grass just couldn't take the volume of leaves. ” Wife had me try it also a few years ago, but it did not work out like she expected, so back to blowing and raking. Perhaps it is different in the southwest than the northeast with IMScotty.

    We have 1.5 acres so I appreciate the help. Fortunately don't have to bag, just get it to the side of road for pickup. So my son blows into piles and I rake into extra large trash can and roll down to the road.
