How many of you ate a vegetarian, pasta or any other kind of food instead of turkey on Thanksgiving this year?  If you have photos showing alternative food choices, I will post them.  I can honestly say I enjoy turkey but love those crispy pieces of skin as a side dish.  Yummy!  Here are photos from my family's Thanksgiving featuring turkey, mashed potatoes, creamed white onions, lots of veggies, a large healthy vegetable salad, homemade pumpkin, cherry, mince, apple pies, moonshine cake and rum cake.

This coming Thursday is Thanksgiving Day.  I hope you, my gentle readers, will find the time to give thanks for your life, your family, friends and neighbors.  As good or bad as you think life is at times, there are others who have nothing or much less than anything you can ever imagine.  Please remember those in your lives who are in need of companionship; maybe a phone call or a visit would make their day.  Holidays can be lonely.  If you can, invite someone to your home or volunteer to serve food at a community food kitchen. 

Did you take a walk through one of our many parks on Staten Island or join Staten Island OutLOUD for one of their events or attend one of the many Christmas/holiday Fairs all across the Island?

Did you begin to visit Holiday/Christmas Fairs around Staten Island? See the list of Fairs for this weekend  below--there are always many to choose from.  I visited the fair at the Olivet Presbyterian Church on Saturday and filled bags with gifts, handmade crafts and of course, baked goods. Below are photos from the Fair.

Saturday afternoon, I took a Walk through Goodhue with Clay Wollney, Staten Island Protectors of Pine Oak Woods and a group consisting of ages from infants on their parents' backs to oldsters like me.  The Protectors are committed to increasing the stewardship of Staten Island’s existing parkland, blue belt corridors and nature preserves to continue the effort to preserve Staten Island’s natural areas.  If you have never been on a

A Brief History of Veterans Day (borrowed from “Military.com”)

Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918. In legislation that was passed in 1938, November 11 was "dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as 'Armistice Day.'" As such, this new legal holiday honored World War I veterans.

In 1954, after having been through both World War II and the Korean War, the 83rd U.S. Congress -- at the urging of the veterans service organizations -- amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word "Armistice" and inserting the word "Veterans."
