PETA's Ad and Thanksgiving

The Norfold-base animal rights group, PETA, (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has had their Thanksgiving tv add banned. The commercial scheduled to run during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade has been banned by four affiliates that will broadcast the parade on Thanksgiving day.

Stations in Raleigh, N.C., Columbia, S.C., Gavannah, Ga., and Little Rock, Ark., have banned the commercial depicting a young girl saying grace at Thanksgiving, giving thanks for the "turkey farms that pack turkeys into dark, tiny sheds for their whole lives".

While the ad is said to encourage veganism it was decided to ban the commercial because it was not appropriate for the spirit of the parade.

Now, for those of you that enjoy a nice juicy turkey and the stuffing please be seated to the table tomorrow and enjoy your meal. I sure will.

The picture above was taken in my backyard just a few weeks ago. Yep, those are turkeys. So I could have a real one anytime I want to. But that's alot of trouble and there is something to be said about going to the store and picking through the frozen 20 pounders.

For Thanksgiving PETA offers the Tofurkey. Ever taste one? Well, for me it's the nearest thing to eating a cardboard box.

Enjoy your turkey meal and all its trimmings. And if you dare invite a PETA member over to watch the parade.

Remembering Our Veterans

Today is Veteran's Day.It is a day chosen to celebrate and give thanks to those brave men and

women that sacrifice their lives so that we may live freely in this great country known as the

United States of America. It will be a day of celebrations, flag waving, parades, patriotic music,

along with hand shaking and pats on the back.

Even if you have no celebrations to attened today be sure to thank a soldier. Most families today

have at least one member in their family that has served our nation. And if not, make it a point

as you travel through your busy day to see just how many veterans you do know. A veteran

could be your mailman, your preacher, a teacher, coworker, or just the guy next door. Take a

moment to thank them for sacrificing their lives so that all of us can sleep safely at night and

rise in the moring to go about our ways freely.

Take time to call a veteran on the phone and thank them. Take time out of your busy day

to listen. Listen to their stories. By listening and learning from them we can understand

and appreciate more fully and deeply what they did and why. Don't let any of the ones you know

think for a second you are not grateful.

Please don't forget to display your yellow ribbons and bows. If yours is currently faded and

frayed replace it. It is just a small symbol to show these great American's we care and they

are not forgotten. And by all means fly that great American flag!

Send a soldier a letter or postcard. Go to this website This site gives any

information needed for mailing anything from letters to packages. Another website is Here you can find so many wonderful things you or your family or organization can

do for those in the armed forces.

Get a group together to crochet or quilt a warm blanket/lap cover for any of our soldiers. They need

our help now more than ever. They need to know that we care!

Thankyou Gary, Cousin Greg, Todd, Patrick, Ronnie, Don, Mr. Hawkins,

Cousin Bobby, Larry and a very special thankyou to POW Lt. Col. Carlyle (Smitty) Harris and all others for caring enough to serve, fight and defend our wonderful country.

Proud to be an American
