Happy Thanksgiving

This is where I am nestled this Thanksgiving Day, at my coffee table in front of the fire.

I was watching the National Dog Show earlier, and J. Peterman, the host of the show, said, "The National Dog Show Presented by Purina is brought to you by..... Purina!"

I found that funny, but it does not read well.

Does anyone think that NBC's coverage of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade has become more NBC self-promotion and less parade?

I have to say, that Al Roker still cracks me up.

Nice fireplace. It's all about the money on NBC or any of the networks for that matter. Happy Thanksgiving to you all, and you need to check out auntie joice's blog. Surprise for you there.

Nobody's done decent parade coverage for years as far as I'm concerned. I remember when the commercial mentions used to be sort of parenthetical. Now the parade itself is the nuisance and the commercial plugs have taken center stage.

The Purina plug you mentioned would have cracked me up, too. The National Dog Show presented by Purina is brought to you by Purina? Who knew?!?

Nice, cozy looking room, though. Glad you had a good Thanksgiving.
