Friday 28 November

It's the day after Thanksgiving, and here is this group entitled "Turkey in the First World War". It is only the depiction of the Turkish flag that steers me away from the idea that turkeys (note lowercase) had any role to play in WW1.

Can I also say that I'm profoundly disgusted by the scenes in supermarkets across the UK on the pretext of Black Friday? It is thoroughly disgraceful that this bad custom has wafted across the pond. Thanksgiving is an American custom, only observed in the Isle of Lewis within the UK. Elsewhere in the country, it is an excuse for greedy and grabbing behaviour. Please abolish.
