Happy Thanksgiving!

We have much to be thankful for this year at the Legal History Blog. My list includes you, dear reader, for keeping us going and bringing us over the 250,000 mark just in time for the Legal History Blog's second birthday, today!And now I hope you will forgive Dan and me a little time off-line. One of us is traveling and the other is cooking for seventeen. To keep you going, here is a Thanksgiving essay on how the bird came to be called a "turkey," and here is my favorite, fool-proof and delicious, recipe for pumpkin pie (substitute milk for the cream, but keep the 1/2 and 1/2). Flawless gravy can be found here (include the optional sherry). And more on Thanksgiving history is here.
