WELCOME to Tuesday November 20, 2012. Thanksgiving Week!
Well once again it’s the yearly Thanksgiving week where we focus on family, in-laws, drama and food. I guess in some cases really bad food that you’ve got to eat anyway because either your family or in-laws have cooked it! My advice? Eat it really fast with a smile and thank about that last steak that you had while eating it! Now don’t eat it too fast or you will make the host think that you actually want another piece! In some cases the food is really good and the conversation is awkward, I mean how many times can you talk about the weather, the kids, Uncle George or Albert? Exactly what is the correct Thanksgiving style? Whats the proper thing to wear? All you really hear about before thanksgiving are ad’s about Black Friday sales. Why is it called black Friday anyway? So you spend one day being thankful for food, families, relatives, and all your material things and then the very next day you are out spending all your money on things that are priced where they should be priced anyway, low!
And last but not least there’s always a drunk uncle, aunt or friend who smokes, who will some how manage to stagger out of your house after the football game and make their way home, no matter how much you’ve tried to stop them from drinking in the first place. Here’s a thought! Maybe they are drinking so that they can eat your cooking? Oh well what’s life without a little adventure? Hey, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a great Tuesday people, and whatever you do, don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace I am outta here, Eucman!
QUOTES OF THE DAY
“Facebook and the Department of Labor have teamed up for a new app
that displays job openings. It’ll be weird when people find a job because
of Facebook, then get fired from that job for using Facebook, then use
Facebook to find another job. It’s the circle of life.” -Jimmy Fallon
“Today is ‘America Recycles Day.’ We’re celebrating here. All of tonight’s jokes
are from previous shows.” -Craig Ferguson
“Hostess, the company that makes Twinkies, filed for bankruptcy in January.
I don’t understand how this is possible. This country has never been fatter.
How are the people who make Zingers and Snowballs losing money?” -Jimmy Kimmel

Although he always ordered just ham and eggs everyday, one customer at the diner always studied the menu carefully each day before ordering.
One day, his regular waitress decided to see if he could be made to order anything else. Before giving him the menu she marked out the ham and eggs entry. Once the customer had looked over the menu for a few minutes, the waitress approached him and asked, “Sir, did you notice that I scratched something you like?” Without looking up from the menu, he quickly replied, “Well, would you mind washing your hands before you bring me my ham and eggs?”
Monday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ How much movie trivia can you answer?
What movie is this quote from??? “He’s going to arrive at the sea on the anniversary of the massacre at Amritsar.”
[pause] “General Edgar is right – ignore it.
Answer: Gandhi! In this scene British Viceroy Lord Irwin (John Gielgud) – the top ranking British administrator of colonial India prior to Indian independence – has just been informed of a planned walk by Indian civil disobedience leader Mohandas (a.k.a., Mahatma) Gandhi (Ben Kingsley) and his followers. They plan to walk across the country to the Indian Ocean to protest a British law that Indians only purchase their salt from distributors licensed by the British. Gandhi plans to demonstrate to his followers how anyone can boil down seawater to get salt. Lord Irwin’s Principal Secretary (Michael Bryant) says line one and Lord Irwin dismissively says line two. “Gandhi” tells the true autobiographical story of Mahatma Gandhi, a lawyer by training, who led his followers on a non-violent rebellion against British rule that ultimately resulted in Indian independence in 1947. This was the strategy later used by Martin Luther King, Jr. in the U.S. civil rights protests in the 1960s. Because of his simple dress and slight physique, he initially was not taken seriously by the British as a rebellion leader. Gandhi neatly summed up his objective with this quote, “In the end you will walk out, because one hundred thousand Englishmen simply cannot control three hundred fifty million Indians if those Indians refuse to co-operate. And that is what we intend to achieve – peaceful, non-violent, non-co-operation ’till you yourselves see the wisdom of leaving.” In the 1983 Academy Awards “Gandhi” won eight Oscars, including Best Picture and Ben Kingsley for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Gandhi. When Kingsley was dressed in a Gandhi-style simple, white dhoti, his resemblance to Gandhi was so striking that many Indian locals at first thought they were seeing a ghost!
