Many foods are associated with a traditional American Thanksgiving dinner. But what do you suppose would be on the menu for Thanksgiving in space? Would you have to squeeze turkey paste out of a tube and get gelatin-covered dessert cubes? No. Food has improved since the early days of space flight.

That's fantastic! I have truly found writing to be very cathartic for me. Now if only there was some type of procrastination drug that would kick me in the butt because staying motivated is the hardest part. Best wishes to you fellow writer and editor in your journey ahead.
Hi I am 'Kopila' from Nepal, the birth place of Buddha and the Buddhist philosophy. I am an agnostic so far by belief and I am still researching / learning more about Buddhism. In Kathmandu, we have Vajrayana Buddhism and Hindu Tantra mixed up making it very unique and complicated. Recently it has also become learning centre of Tibetan Buddhism. Being in Nepal and the Himalayas, we see, hear and come across rituals and practices all the time. I am always curious and every time I learn more. So I never leave a chance to learn either it is internet or real life. I hope to hear great stuffs from people around the world.
Are you ready for Thanksgiving? Do you serve family favorites? I'm not a big turkey fan but we will have turkey this year. I will prepare sweet potato souffle and Watergate salad. My daughter likes green bean casserole but I like creamed corn. There was a request for pecan pie this year too.
Nancy, I know this is an old post but the best thing to do is write about a person's life - their accomplishments. As records are collected, stories around the records are written. For example, if a person was in the military, the story can include when the person served, where, who they may have served with, if they were wounded, medals received, and some other historical facts. The story doesn't have to be dark. We just celebrated the end of WWI and our society traced the stories of a number of the service men who came from this county.
American screenwriter William Goldman passed away on Friday, November 16th. He was 87. Goldman won Oscars for "All the President's Men" and "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid". He, in fact, wrote five of Robert Redford's films so it's strange that the actor has yet to comment on Goldman's passing. Goldman wrote a memoir/screenwriting manual in the 80s titled "Adventures in the Screen Trade" which contained his comforting maxim regarding Hollywood - "Nobody knows anything."
Update: A diverse group of filmmakers including Ana Lily Amirpour, Barry Jenkins, Barbra Streisand, and Christopher Nolan lobbied Warner Bros. against shutting down Filmstruck and reducing access to classic films. Their voices were heard because on Friday, Warner and Criterion announced that in Spring of 2019, the Criterion Channel will launch. The streaming site will feature the Criterion Collection and films from the WarnerMedia library. The special programming that Filmstruck offered will continue on the new site, including original documentaries, filmmaker spotlights, and actor retrospectives.
"For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart." Hebrews 4:12 ESV
We were in Ireland in September - immersed in Irish Culture. We traveled from Dublin to Cobh, to Ring of Kerry, the Aran Islands, Derry, back to Dublin. There were 8 of us and we traveled in two vans. What a wonderful trip!
I still like Libre Office but a lot of people are using documents on Google Drive. I know the schools are doing this and the students write their homework/papers, etc and they are filed in the homework folder so that the teacher can access them.
Books are still popular; I read paper books and well as digital; however, I prefer paper. Young people do like paper books but so many order on amazon. I have audible books as well and the question popped up about merging my Audible account with my Amazon account. Amazon is aptly named. It is Huge, like the Amazon River.
