I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and a safe one, present weather considered. Please eat hearty but healthy. But let's all remember the men and women who are in far away places and at sea, protecting us. I am certain they will be provided with an excellent Thanksgiving Day dinner, but it is not the same as being home with your family. Many of us have been there and trust me, it isn't.
I actually sort of had one, too, even though we don´t celebrate this here in Europe. But currently, we have a volunteer from Florida working here, who invited me and the other fellow volunteers and intern to lunch on Thursday, in order to thank us for all that we´d done for him since he arrived - you see, he had a lot of acclimatization problems after he came here in three months ago.
(by the way, it´s me, your old pal Christian. I decided to switch back to my old username when I registered here.)
