If you live in the US, today, you are celebrating Thanksgiving. Or not, however that might be for you. As a nation, many Turkeys are being cooked today and families are gathering.

If you are celebrating: Happy Thanksgiving!

For all of you interested in US History, here is a link to one of my favorite podcasts Now & Then. The Thanksgiving episode will give you all some background you didn't learn in school.

Writing help

  • A free app: Grammarly. A lot of us are not native English speakers and I am finding it a helpful app. It will underline spelling and grammar mistakes. Just remember that is is not always right -especially if you use complex sentence structures. Here is the link

  • Remember The Most Dangerous Writing App. You set the time - 5 min - and start typing. Don’t stop!!! It will destroy what you wrote if you stop for more than 3 seconds - and backspace does not count as writing on the app. If you are prone to stop and think - this app forces you to keep going. You can make corrections after the 5 minutes are over.

  • A timer. Egg timer is a free tool you can use on your desktop to set a time. This is useful for our freewrites or if you want to work in blocks of time and then take a break. Here is the link

  • I found this app through @emwalker. Use it regularly and it will help you type faster and more accurately. [10 fast fingers](

I have a favor to ask. If you are on YouTube, can you please subscribe to my Sustainable Living Podcast channel. I am not asking you to watch, just to subscribe. I want to be able to do live Yoga classes and need more subscribers before I can access that function.

That's a tough prompt. I have absolutely no thoughts about a wire basket. None, Nada, Zero, Zip.

I recall back in 2018 us having short story contests. One of them started with the teacher telling the kids to just put the first sentence on the paper and then the rest would follow.

However, not in my case. The teacher in that story would have been disappointed in my efforts.

"You didn't even start! Shame on you, Michael," she would have said, "no wire basket for you this time!"

My entry. Couldn't think of anything with a wire basket. The cat saved me.
