Happy Thanksgiving To Our American Friends!


Having spent my last Easter in a dormitory somewhere in the USA where the featured Easter movie was The Blues Brothers, I thought it appropriate to post the above Thanksgiving picture for all my old “buddies” back in the land of snow.

Happy Thanksgiving, guys!

    I love the touch of the pilgrims giving thanks for the their lives and the crops with the HDTV plasma of a football game. That sort of sums everything up quite well!

    Are you responsible for the new cartoon of Thompson feeding scotch to Arthur?

    Yes, Happy Thanksgiving to America and those Americans who believe in true freedom, as visioned by the founding fathers, who fought for so much.

    Indeed, may I humbly also put the words of Sing our Own Song that were so beautifully and melodically voiced by UB40, take it as an anthem to worldwide freedom, to complement John Lennon’s anthem of Peace, Imagine.

    As follows:

    The great flood of tears that we`ve cried
    For our brothers and sisters who`ve died
    Over four hundred years
    Has washed away our fears
    And strengthened our pride
    Now we turn back the tide

    We will no longer hear your command
    We will sieze the control from your hand
    We will fan the flame
    Of our anger and pain
    And you`ll feel the shame
    For what you do in gods name


    We will fight for the right to be free
    We will build our own society
    And we will sing, we will sing
    We will sing our own song

    When the ancient drum rythms ring
    The voice of our forefathers sings
    Forward Africa run
    Our day of freedom has come
    For me and for you
    Amandla Awethu

    A good time to remember a gem from Bobby Kennedy:

    ”Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world. ”
