Sunday Funnies/Happy Thanksgiving











Today we celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving. That's right it's not at the same time as American Thanksgiving. We put some space between gobblers and Santa. And at this time of year we still get to play golf.

Always great funnies, dufus!

Regarding the Nobel Prize for locating the brain's GPS: I wonder if the woman, being the spouse of one of the scientists, was 'finally' asked to join the two-man research team.

Forgot to add: Happy Turkey Day!

Love the Grand Poobah launching the CF18.
I almost wrote "christening" instead of launching. But the planes are older than that.
Yesterday, I completely missed scrolling down to see the rest of your post on Canadian Thanksgiving. I guess it's only apropos that I'm seeing it now, eh? Happy Thanksgiving, John...to you and Maryse. Hope you're having a good one...doing whatever it is that you Canadians do on this day. :)

So, wait, do you eat turkey on Canadian Thanksgiving, or do you just visit a Tim Hortons or something?
I guess we have Tim Hortons in Michigan now, though I still haven't been to one.
I hear good things.

Since I don't really celebrate Thanksgiving, I'm happy enough just to stick a frozen pizza in the oven.

Behind every man searching for a brain is a woman with one.

And we had plenty. Thanks.

Isn't that crazy. Do you think they'll hold up on the flight over to Iraq?

thanks Bryan. Actually we spent the afternoon driving back from my brother's using all the back roads and avoiding the major highways. It was a delightful, lazy drive.

We do both. At Thanksgiving Tim's has a special Turkey donut with double double cranberry flavoured coffee.

I'm not sure what's more embarrassing; the fact that I can't tell if you're joking or the fact that I would actually be excited to try a turkey donut. It would be like stuffing in convenient glorious handheld form!

I know it'd be great. Alas it doesn't exist. I, and my odd-ball gastronomic tastes made it all up. Sorry to keep you hanging, Janna.

Ok, I googled "turkey donut" and found this...

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
