"Grab a piece of paper quickly. Oh, and a pen or pencil too. Don't think about it. Go on. Now, without even looking at your watch or being distracted by anything else that might be going on in your world at this very moment, write down 25 things you are thankful for. Go on. Start writing. 1, 2, 3, 4 and so on. Don't stop. All the way to 25! Here I go:"

One thing I'm not thankful for. I could still slap Hoover for taking the Good Eats concept (started here locally) and franchising it nationally. The month after he franchised, he went bankrupt and closed the 3 original Good Eats locations here in Austin and we have been left behind to suffer. I guess our loss is your weight gain!

Great list, happy holigays.
