Happy Turkey Day and More

It's been a busy month so hopefully things will get back to normal in a bit and blogging will become a bit more regular.

  • First, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. I hope you consumed a goodly amount of turkey and the fixins and have avoided the crazy Black Friday shopping mobs (or not, if that's your thing).
  • And a belated Happy Veterans Day.  I can't believe I forgot to blog on that important day.
  • Here's hoping you #OptOutside tomorrow (Friday).  I have a group trail run scheduled for zero dark thirty tomorrow morning which should be fun.  This is much more enjoyable (IMHO) than battling the hoards of shoppers fighting over consumer crap.
  • On another note, if you haven't heard about the battle for net neutrality, you should know what it is and what you can do to help the cause.
  • On another, completely unrelated note, there's a little town in Eastern Washington that I used to drive through fairly often.  They are perhaps best known for their annual census update sign (old sign but I couldn't find a more recent picture) and a bit further down the road, they were known for Boggan's Oasis which sadly burned to the ground a few nights ago.  If you are feeling generous, it would be nice to see them reach their GoFundMe goal.
  • On a more useful note, consider doing these end-of-the-year financial preps before the new year arrives.
  • I found this interesting take on air travel over at USA Today.
  • And the analytical part of my brain thoroughly enjoys this column over at Refinery 99.
That's all for the update today.  Happy holidays and onward!
