I worked for 16 weeks one year in Columbia, SC, with a great group of folks down at SCANA (including the guy who won $100,000 from America’s Funniest Home Videos for his quadruplets). The best contact I met there was Rick Kirkland, all-around great guy.

Rick had a tradition of calling people up on Thanksgiving to personally thank them if they’d helped him that year. I know because he called me that year, which was as cool as it was unexpected. It’s a great tradition, and since Monday was Thanksgiving here in Canada, and this is the blog age, I’ll continue it (a few days late) here.

I’m grateful for …

… and that’s just to start. I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving and got to spend it with your friends and family.
