When I was a Young Turkey
When I was a young turkey, new to the coop ...
My big brother Tom took me out on the stoop.
Then he sat me down, and he spoke real slow,
And he told me there was something that I just had to know;
His look and his tone I will always remember,
When he told me of horrors... .come late in November.;
"Come about August, now listen to me, Each day you'll
get six meals instead of just three,
And soon you'll be thick, where once you were thin, And
you'll grow a big rubbery thing on your chin;
"And then one morning, when you're warm in your bed,
the farm wife comes in and hacks off your head;
"Then she'll pluck out your feathers so you're all bald
'n pink, And scoop out your innerds right there in the
"And then comes the worst part" he said...... I'm not
bluffing, "She'll spread your cheeks wide n' pack your
rear with stuffing".
Well, the rest of his words were too grim to repeat, I
sat on the stoop like a winged piece of meat,
And decided on the spot that to avoid being cooked, I'm
gonna lay low to remain overlooked
I began a new diet of nuts and granola, High-roughage
salads, carrot juice,... diet cola;
And as they ate pastries, chocolate, and crepes, I
stayed in my room doing Jane Fonda tapes;
I maintained my weight of two pounds and a half, And
act like i'm sick when the bigger birds laughed;
for 'twas I who was laughing, under my breath, As they
chomped and they chewed, ever closer to death;
And sure enough when late November rolled around, I was
the last turkey left walking around......
So now I'm a pet in the farmer's wife's lap; I haven't
a worry, so I eat ..... and I nap;
She holds me all day, while sewing and humming, And
smiles at me, and says: "Christmas is coming"

STATE OF NEW-HAMPSHIRE. IN COMMITTEE of SAFETY, EXETER, November 1, 1782.
the following Proclamation for a general THANKSGIVING on the twenty-eighth day of November [instant?], received from the honorable Continental Congress, be forthwith printed, and sent to the several worshipping Assemblies in this State, to whom it is recommended religiously to observe said day, and to abstain from all servile labour thereon.
M. WEARE, President.
By the United States in Congress assembled.
IT being the indispensable duty of all Nations, not only to offer up their supplications to
the giver of all good, for his gracious assistance in a time of distress, but also in a solemn and public manner to give him praise for his goodness in general, and especially for great and signal interpositions of his providence in their behalf: Therefore the United States in Congress assembled, taking into their consideration the many instances of divine goodness to these States, in the course of the important conflict in which they have been so long engaged; the present happy and promising state of public affairs; and the events of the war, in the course of the year now drawing to a close; particularly the harmony of the public Councils, which is so necessary to the success of the public cause; the perfect union and good understanding which has hitherto subsisted between them and their Allies, notwithstanding the artful and unwearied attempts of the common enemy to divide them; the success of the arms of the United States, and those of their Allies, and the acknowledgment of their independence by another European power, whose friendship and commerce must be of great and lasting advantage to these States:----- Do hereby recommend to the inhabitants of these States in general, to observe, and request the several States to interpose their authority in appointing and commanding the observation of
THURSDAY the twenty-eight day of
NOVEMBER next, as a day of solemn
GOD for all his mercies: and they do further recommend to all ranks, to testify to their gratitude to
for his goodness, by a cheerful obedience of his laws, and by promoting, each in his station, and by his influence, the practice of true and undefiled religion, which is the great foundation of public prosperity and national happiness.
Done in Congress, at Philadelphia, the eleventh day of October, in the year of ourLORD
one thousand seven hundred and eighty-two, and of our Sovereignty and Independence, the seventh.
JOHN HANSON, President. Charles Thomson, Secretary.
Lovely Pumpkin by Anita we love this pumpkin. Special Thank You Anita Van den Eshof we love this pumpkin!
This is so neat. Thanks goes
to Jacuie Lawson for allowing us (way back when we wrote her from our Geocities page) to add this to our site. This card above is one of a small collection by the English artist. ( Now a preview of her wonderful art work).
Why did the police arrest the turkey? They suspected it of fowl play.
Where did the first corn come from? The stalk brought it!
How did the Mayflower show that it liked America? It hugged the shore.
Why did the Indian chief wear so many feathers? To keep his wigwam.
Plymouth Rock - The Pilgrims loved there music!
The Pilgrim who was shot at by an Indian? Had an arrow escape.
A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity. John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary. Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder. John, in desperation, threw up his hand, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed.Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a minute. Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arms and said "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior." John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude. As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird continued, "May I ask what the turkey did?"!
Give me the end of the year and its fun
When most of the planting and toiling is done;
Bring all the wanderers home to the nest,
Let me sit down with the ones I love best,
Hear the old voices still ringing with song,
See the old faces unblemished by wrong,
See the old table with all of its chairs
And I will put soul in my Thanksgiving prayers.
~Edgar Albert Guest (1881-1959)
Simple Thanksgiving recipes
Simple Turkey Recipe.
Plan on 1 1/4 pounds of turkey per person, so you'll have enough for leftovers.
Wash turkey. Do not forget to clean inside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add pre-made prepared stuffing from store. Pin or sow hole up. Place in roasting pan and add 2 cups or more water. Cover with foil. Cook a few hrs. To brown turkey, remove foil during last half hour of roasting time and baste occasionally with pan drippings. Let brown. Turkey is done when thigh temperature on meat thermometer reaches 180 degrees. Moist and good!
Boil gizzard, heart and neck. then simmer for 30minutes. Add liver for 15 minutes. Take meat of bones.

One of my favorite things about being an Internet Entrepreneur is that I can literally wake up in the morning with an idea for a new product and have it become a reality by the afternoon. Or I can find new ways to promote an existing product. Or I can join a new affiliate program or pursue a joint venture. Every time I repeat this process I create a new stream of income to add to my existing revenue base. Read more;
