    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    We don't really celebrate thanksgiving in this corner of the world. Which is fine by me; We have enough holidays as it is.

    But I always found it strange to thank Him for stuff I couldn't really get if I didn't do something about it. Especially when what I would really like was to thank Him for stuff I would love to have but don't because I can't afford it.

    Thanksgiving is a holiday in Aerica (and elsewhere) where we get together, give thanks for what we have, eat turkey, and watch various types of football
