business news in context, analysis with attitude

This is Thanksgiving weekend here in the US, which I always think is the best holiday of the year - just food and football and family. (And almost certainly a movie or two at some point…) Maybe even a little Christmas shopping, though definitely not on Thursday and I'm sleeping late on Black Friday before going for a jog.

For the first time in years, I won't be making Thanksgiving dinner ... my 22-year-old daughter, Allison, has become quite the accomplished cook, and she'll be making a rib roast obtained at the local butcher shop that I told you about last week. (Nobody in the household likes turkey very much, so we've established our own traditions.) The wines will be from Oregon, from my friends at Willamette Valley Vineyards and Carlton Cellars there. Like I said. Tradition.

In keeping with tradition, MNB will be on hiatus for the four-day weekend.

Have a great holiday ... a great weekend ... and I'll see you Monday, November 28.
