Now that Thanksgiving is over, Americans across the country are taking some time to relax, reflect, and digest. I know I will be doing all three, after enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving Day surrounded by family, friends, food, and, yes, trademarks.

Giving Thanks

Posted in Mixed Bag of Nuts

As “Black Friday” store openings creep earlier and earlier into Thursday, I’m growing concerned that my favorite holiday Thanksgiving is losing its luster.  We eat pumpkin pie rather than carve pumpkins like Halloween, and Thanksgiving doesn’t carry the festiveness or allure of a stocking hung by the chimney with care.  We gorge on tryptophan, watch… Continue Reading
