Happy Thanksgiving/Columbus Day Did your college student have the day off? Have they checked in recently? How was your weekend? Staying warm? If you’re in Canada, today is Thanksgiving. We wish them all a good holiday and the time to enjoy their families and all the stuff that goes with the holiday. Here in the U.S., it’s Columbus Day, and some folks— including banks and federal workers — get the day off. (Not so with my County's Public Schools.) For some people, including a number of Native Americans, the celebration of the arrival of European settlers in the West is problematic. Whether or not you celebrate or have the day off, have a nice day.
