Personal Thanks from Translator to These Communities 20101231

Folks, we are coming up to a New Year.  2010 was not kind personally or politically for me, but I am thankful that I remain breathing.

In many respects, that has to do with you, Dear Audience!  You have read many of my thoughts and responded to them.  Agree or disagree, many of you responded.

I have been a Big Orange person for years, but was asked to edit on another site recently.  I very gladly accepted, but will never forget this place.

Translator’s Thanksgiving Message 20101124

Folks, tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day in the United States.  I shall not go onto the history of it, since everyone has her or his own interpretation, and the pundits have theirs.  The Big Bloviator promised to repeat his distorted idea of it again today on his foul radio program.  I made it a point to miss it.

However, it is important to reflect back on the previous year and consider the things for which one gives thanks, and actually to give those thanks.  I do not care if your thanks goes to a deity, to other people, or to communities like these.  The important is that one thinks about the good things that have happened during the past year and thanks someone other than one’s self for them.

Thanks for allowing me to be here

Hello, all.  I am new here so please put up with me getting the buttons and conventions correct.  All that I really have to say tonight is thanks for the welcome, and please talk me through the details of the site, and of the conventions of being a proper citizen here.  I have an obligation to post a guest spot at DailyKos Thursday, but I wonder if it would be OK to post it here and cross post it there.  It has to do with a medical thing.  Any guidance is welcome, since I am new here.

Warmest regards,
