Everyone should know that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  Mostly because I was born on that day in 1957, will celebrate my 57th with lusty gusto on Friday.  But also because the date hinges the history of a people changed forever.  While you are stuffing the stuffing, potatoes, and poultry in your pie hole please take a moment to remember the Original Americans, our Native Americans.  Especially if you are a Nebraskan.  Standing Bear, in my opinion, one of the bravest and greatest of Americans.

If you’re still looking for somewhere to burn of some post-gluttony, I challenge you to come out Saturday morning and race me at the Ashland Turkey Trot.  My old buddy Ivan Marsh is the new race director and we’re happy to support him and the Saunders County Food Bank.
