Thanksgiving

Uncategorized | Posted by Dennis November 18th, 2011

As we approach one of our nation’s great holidays, it’s a good time to pause and reflect on the things we have, and what others don’t.  There’s a great PowerPoint floating around out there called LighteninginaJar.ppt that is pretty thought-provoking.  It made me wonder, and look up some statistics.  (see picture).  We are SO fortunate in North America that 4 out of 5 people use the internet.  If you compare that to the whole planet, only 1 of 3 people have this luxury. See detailed stats here.   In the last 10 years I can only remember ONE time that I went without it for more than a week.  It was Tulsa’s Ice Storm of 2007, and I can remember feeling lost.  I was so hungry for information I would hover by the radio waiting for a news broadcast.  We have LOTS to be thankful for folks.  Enjoy your holidays!
