Passing the Thanksgiving This Year – What I Learned Today – Monday, November 23

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.

Trump is distancing himself from his former legal team member Sidney Powell because… well, who knows?


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.
