The manner in which wealth gets portrayed / prioritized is what oft gives prosperity its bad name.
While viewing the first minute of today’s clip… the Trumpian portion… consider the greed-driven commander-in-chief’s barren of meaningful thanks, Thanksgiving message to his troops (stationed at Afhanistan’s Bagram Airfield-BAF).
Those in his captive audience, who had been totally zoning out on his self-serving, soon-to-be 2020 TV campaign ad, had had the right idea.
However, just imagine how demoralized the soldiers, who had actually been paying attention, must’ve felt upon discovering how they’ve been putting their lives on the line ONLY for the sole, soulless purpose of fattening stock market portfolios… rather than preserving, protecting and defending American freedom.
Following Trump’s words we’ll be giving a listen to Brian Tyler Cohen’s spot on, well documented political / psychoanalysis.
In today’s real world, the all too real character, Donald, has the presidential power to pardon turkeys… both Thanksgiving fowl and everyday foul peeps. In the Match Game universe… circa 1975… the playful staff writers’ character, Dumb Donald, had an entirely different Thanksgiving Day plan in mind… let’s listen in as game show host Gene Rayburn elaborates…
BTW, to all who are celebrating on this day, I hope you have the best Thanksgiving ever!
21 percent of recently polled Americans say that they dislike pumpkin pie… which tends to partially debunk the above clip’s expressed lyrical love for this dessert. Personally, while the taste is fine with me, what I don’t particularly care for is its pudding-like consistency.
If you concur… and even if you don’t… keep in mind that pumpkin is not only good for pie making.
My sister discovered a Pumpkin Cranberry Bread recipe, while reading the November 1996 issue of Gourmet magazine and, ever since then, this melt in the mouth confection has become our family favorite… not only during the holidays but year-round. It is particularly tasty when served warm out of the oven… or even reheated.
Upon my (mere moments ago) discovery that this periodical has actually posted this very recipe, online, I just had to share it with you… all courtesy of this Convenient Interwebs Link.

If you’re celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow… have fun! If you’re traveling… safe journeys!
With tomorrow being Thanksgiving, here in the States; with the rapidly approaching December holidays, worldwide, you may already be planning vacations ISO more clement climes, to attend family reunions, etc.
For all who’ll wind up waiting within airport terminals, train / bus stations, etc., hopefully, you’ll be able to avail yourselves of a few stress and/or boredom alleviating diversions… such as what we witness within our Vid of the Day.
One quick travel tip…
Should the good times start to roll… at the very least… stow away your smartphones long enough to smile a bit more? Or maybe clap along with whatever beat may be at hand?
Even if such a scene doesn’t materialize, perhaps, fond recollections of Brendan Kavanagh and Terry Miles’ boogie-woogie mini piano recital will suffice?
No travel plans, at all? Hey, no harm in giving this YouTube clip a view / listen, anyway, right?
