Grace - which is a thanksgiving prayer- will be said in a public place, though not in a manner

to call attention to ourselves.

When I and my family were younger and I kept better hours, I frequently attended Mass on Thanksgiving Day, but not in recent years. - Family is dispersed and some have other priorities.
But those nearby still gather for a family meal; a restaurant with table service is my choice, a I don't like the jumping up and down as people refill, etc. at buffets.

For years I have received Thanksgiving cards to send to distant family from the Glenmary Fathers, a group which serves the unchurched in rural America. They include a prayer card for our own table, and I'll likely use that as our meal blessing.

Keep in mind that the Repubs will have their convention in Cleveland OH,

presumably earlier in the summer than the Dems anticipated date.

A Dem convention in Columbus would be an antidote to that.

And, yes, it's important to that the Dems win Ohio in 2016.

And, no, Kasich will not be the likely Repub. candidate, despite the media talk of late.
The media touts his win by a huge margin; - that wasn't because he is well-loved in Ohio.

It's because the Dem. candidate's campaign collapsed pitifully during the summer, and he - Ed FitzGerald- took down the entire Dem. slate, which included some good people.

Hail Columbus (OH).

Thank goodness Birmingham AL and Phoenix have been eliminated.

Have you considered a security system (motion sensor or camera) and a sign

that violators of your privacy will be reported to authorities?

While a "Do Not Evangelize" list may be desirable, the effort to get one in place requires the support of others - local officials, etc.-
which might not be so easily or quickly obtained.

Good luck in your efforts.

OMG - You not only let them in, you give three hours of your time?

I don't even like unsolicited phone calls, let alone someone knocking on my door for any manner of "sales".
I believe my time is "my" time, and I'll waste in a manner that pleases me , not others.

It seems I've just been told I'm not good enough....

Well, I don't stomach that, but, as a senior adult, I've come to recognize and accept

that I can only affect a very little corner of the world, so I aim to make that little corner as pleasant as I can for those around me.

So, yes, I have to avert my eyes to much of the misery today, and in the past, lest myself and others lose hope.

And, I wish for you, jtuck004, hope for today for you and all you encounter.

Your news is not good for us DUers, but I'm glad for you that you're retiring

and hoping you'll find that period rewarding for a long time to come.
