Editor's note: Happy thanksgiving to everyone, and try not to gobble down too many turkeys, as it may increase ones circumference and force one to purchase new clothes. ;)
This blogger gives thanks to God for all of His blessings, to Google for making the internet a friendlier place to surf, to Democrats and Republicans for a spirited debate, and for the soldiers everywhere defending this author's freedom so that he doesn't have to.
Below are some other bloggers giving thanks in their own "blog ways." God bless!
Mark Noonan from Blogs for Bush:
Some of us, especially myself, do take everything for granted...we concentrate on our own pathetic little problems and whine, essentially, about how the whole world isn't built to make our lives better. We need this day, once a year, to step back a bit and remember what we've got.
Mihai Ionescu, (Software Engineer) from Inside Google Desktop:
In the US, we're preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving. It's the perfect time to say thanks to our users and developers from all over the world. Your continued feedback, support and contributions have helped us grow and improve considerably.
Sgt. Missick from Web of Support:
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO OUR MILITARY AT HOME AND DEPLOYED....MAY THE SPIRIT OF THIS HOLIDAY SEASON KEEP THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES SAFE UNTIL THEY ARE ALL RE-UNITED.
Although their isn't a mention on the Google Blog (as of this post) about Thanksgiving, Dennis Hwang (Webmaster) give thanks to some Victoria Doodlers:
Last week Google opened our new office in the Victoria area of London, and to mark the occasion we invited students from nearby schools to create their own Google Doodles from our logo. [...] In the end, I was simply blown away by the amazing quality of the work, especially from younger artists up to around age 11 (the bunnies drawn by 5-year-olds were simply awesome).
Blake from Inside Adwords writes:
But before we embark on a four day weekend, involving turkey, friends, and family (although not necessarily in that order), we wanted to say thanks to our ever-growing family of loyal Inside AdWords readers. The fact is, we have a great time with this blog, but it wouldn't mean a thing without all of you. We truly appreciate your interest.
Retrophisch from God Blog:
Despite the financial hardships and the extended family dysfunctional, I have an incredible amount of things to be thankful for again this year. I pray you do, too.
Cao on her blog has an interesting snipet from President John Hanson, 1782
IT being the indispensable duty of all Nations, not only to offer up their supplications to ALMIGHTY GOD, the giver of all good, for his gracious assistance in a time of distress, but also in a solemn and public manner to give him praise for his goodness in general, and especially for great and signal interpositions of his providence in their behalf...
Last but not least, Peter over at Pro Life Blogs gives his thanks:
Thank you Lord for all the Pro-Life individuals and organizations who who put forth their efforts to save your children.
This author would like to thank all of the readers of this blog, regardless of faith, creed or political affiliation. God bless you all and have a wonderful thanksgiving!

Pretty please with a cherry on top: Can you send me a orkut invite!
Then I'll also be able to dedicate a post (shrine) to giving thanks ... to the hidden nook for it's great generosity :->
I'm taking a long shot, but you can mail me at:
