Thank you, Hightower.

Thanksgiving is not a real big deal in my family (usually), but I did get 3 days off work.

Appreciate the note;

There's a guy called Tony, who's over here from Chicago installing some equipement at work. My company was real upset he wasn't working yesterday (spoilsports), it must be akin to working Christmas day or something I guess.

Yup. just like Xmas day without the presents. Brined our turkey for the first time; it came out great, plus seven vegies, cranberry sauce and bread sauce. Bubble and squeak today.

What's Brined Turkey? Something with salty water

Bread sauce....Love it!.....Roll on Christmas!

Was in the States for Labour day, got invited to someones Farm party where horse shoe throwing and rifle shooting was the order of the day. Was a truely pleasant affair.

Just google "brined turkey" there are lot's of recipes. Basically it makes the turkey more juicy and tastier. Bit of a pain in the arse and has to be started previous day. Do not over do it. I find about 7 hours right for a 14 pounder. I have always brined shot wild fowl, mainly pheasant, with great results. If you like bread sauce then you should try cranberry sauce with a little orange zest mixed in and allowed to stand for a few hours.

thanks hightower.

we threw horse shoes yesterday and ate ham and turkey. the latest craze is to deep fry the whole turkey. many homes have been burnt since that whole thing started.

today we recover, then fire off some rounds out of the AK-47. (in the spirit of the season

Great way to celebrate thanks giving. Those turkey deep fryers are bloody dangerous and by the time you have purchased the kit and at least 2 gals of oil it costs 10 times as much as the turkey. it also make a huge mess and has to be done outdoors. Also, what do you do with the oil afterwards.
Better idea is to buy an AK 47 with a 70 round drum mag. and have some fun. Much, much safer. I bet I am going to get some flack from UK folks on this one.
