Thanksgiving Jukebox and Open Thread

My wife is the “general manager” of a the single outlet of a certain restaurant chain here in town, rhymes with Benny’s, and she works every holiday because it is always open. We’ve long since gotten used to having our Thanksgivings, Christmasses and Birthdays on her next day off rather than the actual day. This year it’ll be next Thursday. So…I’ll be blogging through tomorrow, though probably only weekend-style as we won’t be getting the traffic in any case, then I’ll be taking next Thursday off. (Edited for clarity – in the chain’s parlance “general manager” means you run a single store, not the whole business as one commenter leaped to conclude.)

Here’s an extra jukebox to celebrate the holiday, and an open thread for whatever you wish to post too.

This one is for my darling wife, for whom I am truly thankful. Thank you, accushla.

Most recently I was Editor in Chief of The Agonist from Feb 2012 to Feb 2013. My blogging began at Newshoggers and I’ve had the immense pleasure of working with some great writers there and around the web ever since, including at Crooks & Liars. I'm a late 40′s, Scottish ex-pat, now married to a wonderful Texan, with Honours in Philosophy from Univ. of Stirling, UK 1986. I worked most of life in business insurance industry (fire, accident, liability) including 12 years as a broker/underwriter/correspondent at Lloyd’s of London. Being from the other side of the pond, my political interests tend to focus on how US foreign policy affects the rest of the planet. Other interests include early and dark-ages British history, literature and cognitive philosophy/science.
