You help me to get out of bed every morning in hopes that your newsletter is in my mailbox. I learn so much— and despite the tough news, I come away with confidence that our democracy will survive. Thanks to you and the chickens for keeping me sane! And very happy thanksgiving to you and your family.

Hillary was right about so many things. So many people were wrong about Hillary. Let’s hope next Thanksgiving the Turkey is locked up.

Love it when we get chicken breaks. I imagine they are thankful to not be on the menu. LOL

As with HCR's photos, your chickens and their friends offer us context. Thank you for everything.

Happy Thanks giving to all our rich and powerful cousins across The Big Pond!

I wish we in Australia had a Thanksgiving-style holiday somewhere in the calendar - I feel like it's missing. All the hoopla of big meals and many family gatherings are tied up with Christmas in the torpid summer heat - which for most Aussies are entirely secular events these days. Or the occasional special birthday. But a purpose-built additional day to gorge (and score a lazy four-day weekend) would be greatly appreciated!

Happy Thanksgiving! I love Pepper’s mussed and slightly crazed look; she always brings a smile to my face. Thank you for Civil Discourse. I have learned so much about current legal issues from you (and Cafe Insider and #SistersInLaw).
