Happy Thanksgiving

May your stuffing be tasty May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious and your pies take the prize,
and may your Thanksgiving dinner stay off your thighs!
Happy Thanksgiving from Heart of Glass!

GIVE UP THE TURKEY! Try Tofu!
George Bush did only a few things correctly. This was one -
On November 20, 2007, President George W. Bush granted a "pardon" to two turkeys, named May and Flower, at the 60th annual National Thanksgiving Turkey presentation, held in the Rose Garden at the White House. The two turkeys were flown to Orlando, Florida, where they served as honorary grand marshals for the Disney World Thanksgiving Parade. The current tradition of presidential turkey pardons began in 1947, under Harry Truman, but the practice is said to have informally begun with Abraham Lincoln, who granted a pardon to his son Tad's pet turkey.
Go Vegan for just today!

The National Turkey Federation estimated that 46 million turkeys—one fifth of the annual total of 235 million consumed in the United States in 2007—were eaten at Thanksgiving.
FREE THE TURKEY!

Domesticated turkeys (the type eaten on Thanksgiving) cannot fly, and their pace is limited to a slow walk. Female domestic turkeys, which are typically smaller and lighter than males, can move somewhat faster. Wild turkeys, on the other hand, are much smaller and more agile. They can reach speeds of up to 20-25 miles per hour on the ground and fly for short distances at speeds approaching 55 miles per hour. They also have better eyesight and hearing than their domestic counterparts. COULD BE SAID,
ONLY COWARDS EAT DOMESTIC TURKEY.

- I've given up the Turkey, now please give up the blog.
- #2 Lamps aren't blenko but they are very old WV Glass. Fruits and veggie range in age from over 20 years to 2007. Many are available currently at Blenko. If you like the look, why not start collecting fruits & Veggies today?
Susan,
The buffet table does look delicious with the fruits, many are available www.blenkoglass.com.
Sweetdoc,
Thank you for reading, and for buying Blenko, and for exposing your community to Blenko!
