    Re: Happy Thanksgiving

    I may have the background wrong but... Thanksgiving is a celebration that the earliest surviving plantation of English settlers lived through their first winter in the New World? I think that's right.

    Yes, congratulations, I'm delighted one of the English settlements finally did survive. The idea that you'd otherwise all be descendants of Pizarro and Cortez, or worse yet the French, doesn't bear thinking about.

    Bravo the survivors.

    Would it be fair to describe them as Puritans?

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
    From the upper tier of the Leppings Lane End of the Hillsborough Stadium, I watched the events of that day unfold with horror.
    When the flowers want to oxygen and nutrition, or you’re a wedding or party planner, I will help you too much.

    Actually, Jamestown, in the Virginia Colony was the first surviving English settlement in the colonies. It was a commercial venture.
    The Plymouth colony was, indeed, founded by Puritan separatists who called themselves "Pilgrims"

    It is the story of these pilgrims that is became the focus of the Thanksgiving tale.
