What will you be doing on Thanksgiving and whom will you be with?   I'll be in Hermosa Beach with my wife, Rebecca and her family. We've got a great dinner planned.

What will your Thanksgiving meal consist of? A deep-fried turkey, stuffing, veggies and some good craft beer

What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish? Why?  I love stuffing -- but it's probably best that it's really only served on Thanksgiving.  

What is your favorite thing about Thanksgiving? Football --- I mean, spending time with family and friends.

What was your childhood Thanksgiving like? We always had a pretty small, traditional Thanksgiving at home in Florida where I grew up and of course it was always a big football weekend for my Florida Gators.

Hey Gretchen - good eye. The photo was taken at The Buchart Gardens, just outside of Victoria, BC. Really beautiful spot if you ever have a chance to visit.
