Turkey Warrior

Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the USA. It is a day we give thanks. Thankful that we can be with friends and family, eat to much food, and go to sleep at 4pm. We are even more thankful, because when the pilgrims first settled here, they had to fight a great war against giant turkeys. Lucky for us they won. It was hard, but if some of the pilgrims hadn't been able to tame and domesticate some of the turkeys, all would have been lost. Since that time, it was discovered the turkeys were quite delicious, so we don't use them in turkey jousts anymore. Here are some videos reenacting some of the turkey battles.

Turkeys can be dangerous!

The End.
I went to a Q and A screening of "Ratatouille" the other night. This quote was funny:
"Brad Bird with Pixar is like playing "Doom" in God Mode."

Please help save the chickens of Othello, WA

My hometown is in a video competition to get an MRI machine for the hospital. They don't have one. One comes every Thursday on a truck, if you need a scan any other day, you can drive an hour to the next nearest hospital. This time of year can be bad, roads get shut down and make it hard to travel. The people in the video work at the same hospital my Mom works. Check out the site, there are alot of other small town hospitals in the competition. Please vote! You can vote once a day from the same computer. Scroll down to find the video.
