Tree Urinal At Public Service

In an emergency, the inattentive or inebriated  may fall prey and mistake the following urinal for the genuine version.   There is always the joker who may use it for kicks.

The giveaway: always check if the drain is connected appropriately.

Thanksgiving November 26, 2009

Happy Thanksgiving.  From the pilgrims of yesteryear to those near and far today.  Put on those bonnets, hats, and buckled shoes, and partake with your family and friends in this joyous occasion of giving thanks for the bounty we enjoy today.

The First Thanksgiving In Plymouth posted previously, provides a nice historical account of what those early pilgrims went through in the course of settling the new land, and how they came together with the native people to celebrate their survival.  It gives renewed appreciation to their difficult experiences survived.
