Thanksgiving Break

Monday, November 21, 2011
Loretta & Susan report:

On Thursday the 24th we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving in the U.S. by eating a lot.

It took a while for the country to settle on a Thursday in November, but that's another story—which you'll probably find it in a blog here sometime.

We have a great deal to be grateful for, like being able to write books and get them published.  And then we have this blog, where we find bits of history and put them out there for your edification and amazement.  A great many more are edified and amazed than we'd ever hoped for.

So yes, we'll be giving thanks for our readers, definitely.

This week, though, we're taking time off from blogging, so that we can prepare for the big Thanksgiving dinner and spend time with our families.  But we'll be back next week, with more great nerdy history stuff.
