Ain't that the way it usually goes? Eskimoes and Mongolians didn't fare too well in Russia either. Nobody talks about that though. ~ Brittany Griner

My family had to get out of Russia because of the Zar. Hope we come to some agreement to get Britney out soon, Gershon.

This year it's Del Taco! I'm the only turkey around here. Thanks for the visit, Mystic Rose. Robert

Thanksgiving began in 1621 when Native Americans sat down with a bunch of undocumented pilgrims. They had dinner and the pilgrims never left--Jay Leno
