Well, I realize that many of our members are from outside the USA, and likely don't celebrate Thanksgiving Day, but I want to give thanks to everyone, novice and expert, for sharing your knowledge, kind words, and quite sincerely, your constructive criticisms that I hope will make me a better person.
I'm not much of a Christmas person, perhaps because I think we should be 'giving' 365 days a year, but I am a HUGE fan of Thanksgiving.
Forget the history behind the holiday for a moment (if you know it), and just remember that celebrating the gratitude we share for one another, and setting aside differences, competitiveness, anger, and envy, even for one day out of a year, can bring all of us closer to peace and happiness.
Thanksgiving is about selflessness. None of us have much meaning in life without others to share with.
I'm a third generation baker - my grandfather owned several Italian bakeries in and around Boston, but I never met him (long story). So, every Thanksgiving I spend the night before the holiday baking up a storm! No store bought pie crusts in my house! And the next morning, I'm up early making breakfast, fixing the turkey, and stoking up the wood smoker to make the most superb ribeye roast!
Admittedly, it is a lot of work, and by no means to do I think I've accomplished the level of expertise that my grandfather had. But, the satisfaction of serving my family and friends (and there's a lot of them) a meal that they don't normally eat the rest of the year...well...it's special for me.
I wish you were all here for a slice of turkey, a piece of pie, a glass of wine, and a few laughs!
Happy Thanksgiving all,
I am extremely thankful for this wonderful community and can only echo what Tim has said. I've learned so much from y'all, and you've all have gotten me through some tough times.
We're newfound fans of Thanksgiving - this'll be just the second year in a row my fiancee and I make a traditional turkey. Hopefully it turns out as good as the last! Although, we might just have to add smoked ribeye roast to our menu... 🤤
In the spirit of Thanksgiving and turkeys, I'd like to share an export plate with a turkey that I've admired from afar in China for the West. Here it is with its write-up:
Thank you, both, lovely sentiments. My son has just moved to US with his wife so this will be his first Thanksgiving with her family.
Enjoy your special day.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone today I’m breaking out my special shakers for our family Turkey dinner. We are short a family member this year my wife’s father who was lost to Covid but we are thankful for the rest of the family being healthy and safe.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
I am especially thankful to Peter. And also to Jeremey and Sharon for being amazing detectives and helping me with identification as well as to everyone else here who makes this a special place to come and share enthusiasm and knowledge.
Thanks for starting this thread. You make a good point: the original proclamation by President Lincoln making Thanksgiving a holiday mentioned nothing about Plymouth Rock or the Pilgrims; that association came later (and unfortunately).
I have spent the whole day cooking and hunting for fossils in southern Texas with my little cousins and family, and while I have certainly had way too much wine and turkey to write as fantastic and wholesome a note as everyone else, just thought I would jump in and share the sentiment.
this is a wonderful place, and I am extremely thankful we have such a corner of the internet where we can learn together.
oh and we have a teepee for the little ones on the ranch just for such occasions…
Wishing you all a wonderful holiday. Thank you all for being part of our supportive community. By the way, I tried not to eat too much, but I was not successful. Cheers!

The art of calligraphy - and for the ancient Chinese it certainly was an art - aimed to demonstrate superior control and skill using brush and ink. Calligraphy established itself as one of the major Chinese art forms during the Han dynasty (206 BCE - 220 CE), and for two millennia after, all educated men were expected to be proficient at it.
