We should all take a moment, or two, or three to remember what we have to be 'thankful' for!

Family, friends, health, life, good days, bad days, those who have preserved, and are now serving for our freedom and safety....and a lot of other things.

Everyone; have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving

Very true John, what we take for granted everyday is many times true blessings.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

For sure. There are many little things which exasperate us, but they really aren't that a big a deal when we stop to think of all the important things we have to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! \:\)

Have a happy and thankful Thanksgiving everyone! And today is what the wiring codes for kitchens were essentially written for. To allow us to prepare the turkey and all the trimmings.

A few irreverent comments.

I note that our non-US members had to work today. Gee, I'm glad to be an American! \:D

From the years when I did nothing but service work, I remember some of the unique "gotta have it fixed now!" calls. From what I call the the electrical test season... Thanksgiving, X-mas, and New Years are the biggest electrical draw days short of the SW in in Summer. Everyone is going to go to someones home and turn EVERYTHING on. And the days when that over-loaded already resturaunt panel gets a few hundred extra watts applied to it. That Office party at night.... Or that store that had to out-do the competion with their lighting display.

If you haven't already - go put a few 100, and 200A fuses on the truck. Then give thanks that you're not a plumber!

Happy Holidays!
