Happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday
Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the USA. Hey, I'll even say Happy Thanksgiving to those of you who are from the USA, but living elsewhere. I've posted my traditional photo of a turkey for some very important reasons.
- Turkey is the traditional Thanksgiving day meal.
- Everyone expects to see a turkey on Thanksgiving.
- I have a picture of a turkey.
- This means I don't have to process and post a different photo today, which would be a waste because this week is traditionally very slow for Internet visitors.
There are times when I've thought about going out and taking a new turkey picture each year for Thanksgiving. Then I remember that there aren't a lot of turkeys near where I live and most folks probably don't care that I use this picture over each year. Now I could call it a tradition. Some people could even be disappointed if they saw a different turkey here today. That's what I'm going with today.
Traditions are important things. That means you have to kick back with your family, have some turkey, watch a Charlie Brown special or Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Relax today, as life will get exciting soon enough tomorrow.
I am not one of those people who lines up in front of Best Buy to save money on door buster specials. Therefore, I stay out of their way and shop online. With that in mind, I've received word about a few specials and I'll pass them along, just in case something grabs your attention.

I just took advantage of this offer myself. I've been using HostGator since they were a small provider in Florida. They left the state, but I've always been satisfied with my service plans. Now I'm in the process of upgrading to a VPS. I did some comparison shopping before making my choice. HostGator still came out with the best plan and pricing for the dedicated resources I need.
If you're wondering what a VPS is or whether you need one, please read my post on Changes Ahead for the Blog to learn a bit more about using a Virtual Private Host.
