Thought I would make al ittle list of things I am thankful for, etc. Parents, friends, family, and pets are obviously included, so I am not even mentioning them.
Things I Am Thankful for in 2004 (in no particular order after the Steelers)
1.) The Pittsburgh Steelers and the NFL
2.) A Global economy, which allows us to enjoy things like items #3-5
3.) Kona coffee
4.) Laphroiag scotch
5.) Imported cigars
7.) President Bush and Vice President Cheney- they aint perfect by any stretch, but I will take them over what the Democrats keep burping up any day of the week.
8.) That the junior Senator from Massachussetts is still Teddy Chappaquiddick’s understudy.
9.) That ESPN and other sports cable networks are starting to show lacrosse.
10.) Down comforters, fluffy pillows, and high count sheets in the winter.
11.) Air conditioning and iced tead in the summer.
12.) Long hot showers in the with good water pressure
14.) How easy techonology has made so many things (internet shopping, internet banking, blogging, cell phones, etc.)
15.) The PGA
16.) Every man and woman who is serving or has served in the military in defense of this nation.
Feel free to make your own list and link. And don’t forget to eat pork and sauerkraut tomorrow.
What is eating pork and sauerkraut on New Years Day all about?
I hope you have a happy and healthy New Year.
To be even more thankful try Talisker. I was a Laphroiag drinker for years. Talisker still has pronounced smoke but is a little more balanced. Of course, I hesitate to intervene in a religious discussion of this nature.
