What are traditional foods for Thanksgiving?
    Whatever your do, you can't have a REAL traditional USA-style thanksgiving without a couple of NFL games on the TV! Get them via a satellite feed or even a DVD/tape or two and play them during the afternoon.



    And then don't forget to set the alarm clock for 0300 the following morning to get the jump on the big after-Thanksgiving sales.

    I went through Ulysses on my way to New Mexico to go skiing last Christmas. But alas, I have no family in Ulysses. Best part of the state? You must be drinking.
