Thanksgiving is cancelled this year. At least in my house it is. Yes, I know that it kinda sucks that we lose the holiday that involves being around friends and family and eating as much food as you can possibly stuff into your gullet, but I’d rather not try to recreate the 17th century pilgrim thanksgiving/biological warfare combo. Mrs. C and I will make small turkey, roast some veggies, maybe make a dessert and have some wine. It’s 2020 after all.

The CDC is warning against cruise travel and for the LIFE OF ME, I cannot figure who on Earth would actually get on a cruise during the height of a pandemic. Of course, Trump got over 70 million votes so I guess we just live in a stupid, stupid world.
Trump is distancing himself from his former legal team member Sidney Powell because… well, who knows?
Imagine a month in which you are featured in a major motion picture with your hand down your pants, you have a press conference at Four Seasons Total Landscaping, your hair dye leaks on live television, your case is dismissed with prejudice—and it’s your colleague who is fired!

HA! This made me so happy. A German covid denier (wtf?) compares herself to a Nazi resistance fighter and the guy working security quits on the spot.
