Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving ... I'm certainly thankful for all of you. BELOW IS PART OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN'S THANKSGIVING DAY PROCLAMATION:Establishing Thanksgiving Day on the last Thursday of November and issued on October, 3 1863

Peggy Jo

The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. ..

No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and voice by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.

---and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity, and Union. In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the city of Washington, this third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the independence of the United States the eighty-eighth.

A. Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

  • I love Pomegranates.
  • My son, Charley, and I used to hang over the kitchen sink and devour them during the season years ago when we first became acquainted with them. They are wonderful, a little difficult to prepare, but well worth So, here's the scoop on pomegranates: • They're usually available just in November in Michigan.
    • The heavier the fruit, the more juice inside.
    • Color of the fruit and blemishes outside do not indicate the quality of the fruit inside.
    • Fresh un-cut pomegranates will last a couple of weeks if kept out of the sunlight at room temperature.
    • They will last a month or so in the vegetable bin of the refrigerator.
    • Cut, they will last a couple of days to a week if kept tightly sealed in a plastic bag and refrigerated.
    • Cut "arils" - the sweet juice sac surrounding the edible seed - in an airtight container will last several days in the refrigerator.
    • If you put the arils in a tightly sealed plastic bag, they will keep up to a year in the freezer. Defrost and eat them any time you want!
    • The best way to get to those yummy, juicy seeds is to cut the crown off and score the outer layer into sections. In a large bowl of water, break apart the sections, getting out the arils with your fingers. The white membrane will float to the top and the arils will sink to the bottom. Remove the membranes, strain out the water, and they're ready to eat or put on your favorite ice cream, or in your favorite recipes.
    Pomegranates are high in vitamin C, anti-oxidants, and fiber.

    By Baltimore Sun Reporters Originally published November 23, 2005

    A former Baltimore newscaster and a former Indianapolis weatherman -- now two of television's titans -- are scheduled to face off Dec. 1 when Oprah Winfrey appears on Late Show With David Letterman, marking the end of a long icy relationship, or perhaps the beginning of a deeper freeze ahead. The queen of daytime TV appeared on Letterman's show twice when it was on NBC, but had said she wouldn't appear again because she didn't like being the butt of his jokes, as she often is.
    Dec. 1, however, is opening night for her Broadway production of The Color Purple, just across the street from the old Ed Sullivan Theater, where Letterman's show, now on CBS, is taped. Letterman announced her appearance on Monday night's show.

    Over the years, Letterman has poked fun at Winfrey's weight, her wealth, her magazine, her mad cow warnings, her book club -- even her audience philanthropy. And he reportedly embarrassed her at the 1995 Oscars with his "Oprah, Uma; Uma, Oprah" introduction.

    Despite all that, for whatever reason, Winfrey will for the first time in 16 1/2 years take the chair to which she vowed she would never return. Clearly, there will be some sensitivities there, which is why, as a public service, we offer these precautions.

    Top Ten Questions Letterman Should Not Ask Oprah: 10. Wanna send out for some burgers?
    9. Why the color purple? Why not teal?
    8. Do you ever actually read any of those books?
    7. Roger Ebert -- thumbs up or thumbs down?
    6. Uma, Oprah and Travolta -- will we ever see them in a movie together?
    5. Am I wong or are you wearing Wang?
    4. Have you looked into getting Cruise control for that couch?
    3. As a parting gift, we'd like to offer you this Hermes bag ... uh ... wait ... could you hold on for a second?
    2. If you added up all the weight you've lost over the years, how big a town would that be?
    And the No. 1 question Letterman should not ask Oprah:
    Where's my free car?

  • Celebrate Detroit's diverse holiday traditions amid the state’s premier arts and cultural institutions, historic churches, and area galleries, which are all open free of charge on Noel Night.

    Horse-drawn carriage rides, carolers, music, dance, children’s activities, arts & crafts, shopping, Yuletide treats and fun are all part of the evening’s festivities. From pictures with Santa to the Nutcracker Ballet, traditional Christmas Spirituals to a Clear Winter’s Night Planetarium Show, Noel Night offers a myriad of activities for families to enjoy.

    Holiday shopping abounds in the area’s galleries and gift shops and includes special Noel Night-only opportunities like the annual College for Creative Studies Student and Alumni Art Sale. Over 60 area performance groups bring the sounds of the season to life, and the evening’s festivities conclude with the long-standing tradition of a community sing- a-long, led by the Salvation Army Band, on Woodward Avenue.

    There’s no better way to get in the spirit of the season than to stroll through the Cultural Center with family and friends on Noel Night.

    Noel Night activities take place in and around Midtown Detroit’s Cultural Center, primarily between Ferry and Warren on the north and south, and between Cass and John R on the west and east. Free shuttle service is offered, with stops at most participating venues. Convenient parking is available in area lots.
