November is here and the Holidays are almost upon us. As we transition from autumn to winter the Prescott area is thriving with events and things to do. Thanksgiving is the real kick-off for the festivities and that is right around the corner. Happy Thanksgiving! Give thanks with a grateful heart!
Unlike today’s traditional Thanksgiving feast consisting of turkey, stuffing, cranberry, etc.; the original Thanksgiving menu probably consisted of the following items:
- Seethed [boiled] Lobster, Roasted Goose, Boiled Turkey, Fricassee of Coney
- Pudding of Indian Corn Meal with dried Whortleberries, Seethed Cod, Roasted Duck
- Stewed Pumpkin
- Roasted Venison with Mustard Sauce
- Savory Pudding of Hominy
- Fruit and Holland Cheese
While you are remembering all your blessings this Thanksgiving please take time to remember those who may not be so blessed. There are many opportunities to give to the less fortunate through the holiday season. To find out what is happening and where go visit Theresadesoto.com for a community connection.

- Mosquitos kill an average of 750,000 people a year. Compare that to 475,000 human-related deaths, 50,000 snake-related deaths, and 10 shark-related deaths per year, and mosquitos suddenly seem even more terrifying than before.
- All of the gold mined in the history of the world would more or less fit into a 20x20x20 meter cube.

Did you know this was written on Thanksgiving Day?

To grandfather’s house we go;
The horse knows the way
To carry the sleigh,
Through the white and drifted snow.”
