turkey weekend is looming. Don't call your friends south of the border
this weekend as they are either a) expanding at the table b) making a
sandwich for further expansion c) yelling at the box like it is going to
reply d) horizontal on the couch. This is not a good weekend to reach
out and be touchy feely with Ma Bell. Wait till Tuesday when the turkey
tryptophan coma has worn off.
I am not pointing fingers - we got a jump on our American friends and did the same thing a month ago.

movie is exceptional - don't miss it. Check out this trailer. A fabulous cast with a lot of laughs. You must see this one.

it out of the park last year with his gingerbread display and I know
this year will be equally spectacular.
