Several people that I know have written e-mails to say that they tried to send comments to the blog, but were having trouble. I so much want to see what you have to say. Please try again. I helped my mother-in-law do it and it is really quite easy. At the bottom of each entry, click on the word "comments." In the box provided write your comments. Under that there are three buttons. Change the button to "other" or even "anonymous." If you leave it on "google/blogger" it asks for a password. You do not need to do that. You can add your name and website if you want, but they are completely optional. Click the "publish" button and you're done. It sends it automatically. Don't worry if it doesn't appear on the blog immediately. It takes awhile to go through the system. It will appear within a few hours.
Today while I was reading the paper I noticed that some stores are audicious enough to open at midnight on Thanksgiving night! This is crazy and it has to stop. Do not encourage them by participating. Adbusters.com has had a campaign of "Buy Nothing Day" for a couple of years now. The idea is that you take the day for relaxing with your family instead of going on a consumer buying binge. Buy it any day but Friday!
