BONUS NOVEMBER DECORATING IDEA: - Thanksgiving Decor in Natural Autumn Colors - "To celebrate the main autumn holiday and give thanks for everything a good idea is to use the autumn colors: brown, red, orange, a little bit of gold. They look cool, make us feel as if we were celebrating outside and, of course, add coziness. Take colorful tablecloth, napkins and cards for the guests. Use bright tableware and centerpiece of flowers, vegetables and berries. Use pumpkins, gooseberries, leaves, peppers, pears and dry ears for decoration of the table, mantelpiece and candle holders. These colors would give some cheerfulness and relaxation to your party or family dinner."

From - 11/04/16:

A man was trying to cross the street. As he stepped off the curb, a car came screaming around the corner and headed straight for him. The man walked faster, trying to hurry across the street, but the car changed lanes and was still coming at him.

So the guy turned around to go back, but the car changed lanes again and was still coming at him. By now, the car was so close and the man so scared, that he just froze and stopped in the middle of the road. The car got real close, then swerved at the last possible moment and screeched to a halt right next to him.

The driver rolled down the window. The driver was a squirrel!

The squirrel said to the man, "See, it's not as easy as it looks, is it?"
