    This is from my friend down in the Hill Country , of Texas.
    ( Buddy is her hubby, he is a huge HOG rider to Washington DC annually , 26th year 2013, motorcycle group " Rolling Thunder" with friends to be in the Memorial Day parade, honoring the fallen )

    Thanksgiving Plans this year

    Again this year Buddy goes to the HD dealership in Boerne. They clean out their sales front room of merchandise.
    They set up tables and order Thanksgiving Buffet Dinner for 200 brand new Air Force recruits.

    The very young men are in their second week of training in San Antonio. There will be four buses of 50 young men.

    They do not tell them where they are going, just to dress and load into the bus.

    They are led within the base by four HOG bikers inside Lackland Base.

    Once they get outside there will be a huge group of the Hill Country Chapter of HOGs to surround the four buses
    on their way to the dealership.

    Last year a phone company had a phone for each soldier, so they could call home with free time on it.

    The Hog club ladies and men help set up, serve the meal, and clear after the dinner to help the dealership.

    None of the folks helping serve or take care of the boys, eats their meal until every soldier has been fed all he wants
    ......turkey, dressing, the whole shebang......

    Many of the young guys were overwhelmed at the generosity last year and Buddy was happy to help out
    with this project again this year.

    I expect I will do something with Amy and family.

    I think what Buddy does is important to those young fellows. Most are away from their homes and loved ones
    for the first time in their we know they appreciate what is done for them, especially for a break in their "boot camp"...

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.......

    Hugs, Nancy

    You are very welcome, we need to always remember what those guy and gals have done for each of us, to enjoy the freedoms we have.
    That's what burns me up with the muslims.. they have no idea what our family ( USA Citizens ) has given in the line of duty, honor, and privilige to keep freedom alive in America.

    I thought you who served in Nam would like to see this, if you missed it , when it was happening.
    My brother served there also.

    No matter what one may think of Nixon now - watch this!

In laptops: the machine doesn’t respect the set power options, As the “turn off the display” is set to be “never”, then if the laptop is restarted then this option is changed in its own and the value of never is switched to other value like “15” (attached). What might be the issue here?...

Had to run to the pet store tonight to pick up some food for the cat and came past Best Buy where we saw at least 15 tents lined up. I find it sad that people will dedicate at least 2 full days of their lives in order to get some great deal. Seriously, rather than enjoying Thanksgiving with...
