Oh, and I'll add this to my Thanksgiving greeting to you all this morning (below) -- this is a Thanksgiving Day Message from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, compliments of my amigo in Jamiaca, VT, HomeyM:

We are all here on this planet, as it were, as tourists. None of us can live here forever. The longest we might live is a hundred years. So whiile we are here we should try to have a good heart and to make something positive and useful of our lives.

   Whether we live just a few years or a whole century, it would be truly regrettable and sad if were were to spend that time aggravating the problems that afflict other people, animals, and the environment. The most important thing is to be a good human being.

Well DUH! That is good advice but pretty obvious for a Dali Lama. He should tell us how to get food, shelter, health care, etc etc just from sitting around advising people if he really wants to help. He doesn't understand the common man!
Happy Thanksgiving Steve! See you soon!
