Ah, tell me about it! I actually don't own furniture. I bought my first bed four years ago when I was in Hong Kong and as far as I know it's still there.

I've lost track of how many mattresses, kettles, cutlery and other various items I've acquired and then donated to various landlords around the world over the years.

Welcome to Black Friday. Only in America do people trample on each other to buy things they were grateful to have on Thursday.

I'll NEVER drive on Black Friday again, never, People are in such a hurry today they're honking their horns, cursing each other and making obcene gestures at anyone who who gets in their way. It's like a death wish to drive on the highway,.....

Is Black Friday when there are one off sales in shops? I remember seeing something about it on the news here when years ago people were hurt, am I correct?

There are a few ways to look at Black Friday.....I worked in a store for many years so Black Friday to me and my coworkers just meant to us that it was the start of the busiest time of year. Some would say nightmare time Wink

But actually it is a day for retailers to go from being in the "red" to being in the "black" --financially speaking---in other words turn a profit.

Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to Clooney I go!

Hi yes, you may have read about the people that were trampled trying to get into Wal Mart. I think some employees were injured too. Silly me - I'm hoping retailers can make some good sales, but this day is not for the faint of heart. LOL

Thanks - we have a similar sale here beginning of July, people sleep outside the night before and then thousands try and cram through the doors to be the first to get to the really good bargains, people have been hurt. Business strategies have changed a lot since, sales all year long and now retailers are trying to be competitive with online stores. I had seen Black Friday on the View and it looked very frightening, think it was Walmart.

Yes that's very interesting IM...thank you for posting it. Coolio

I googled for more information and there are some good articles about it all. Hopefully there'll be some news items on or
around 3 December.

All I know is those ancient Egyptians were damn clever !



This is an interesting blog about it......

A thought for whoever wants to read:

Dear JESUS, I am not worried about what may go wrong tomorrow because You will take care of me!!! You will shield me from suffering, or give me enough strength to bear it!!! I will be at peace about my life, and put aside all anxious thoughts and worries. I will continually say today, You are my strength and shield. My heart trusts only in You! AMEN.

Beautiful Cindi!

My favorite from the Bible, Psalms 71:1-4


1. In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame.
2. In your righteousness, rescue me and deliver me;
turn your ear to me and save me.
3. Be my rock of refuge,
to which I can always go;
give the command to save me,
for you are my rock and my fortress.
4. Deliver me, my God, from the hand of the wicked,
from the grasp of those who are evil and cruel.

Thanks Maggy, I'm glad you liked my post. Now if I could only believe it!!!

I'm a little cranky today - trying to get over a huge fight with my ex and family on Thanksgiving day when I overheard a remarkably false and stupid comment he said about me. I'm basically a laid back person but when I get pissed off - watch out. Angry

We should not be in the same room, house or world together.

Sorry to hear that Cindi.
He is jealous of you, or other wise he wouldn't be looking your way or mentioning your name.

Oh, sorry to hear about that, Cindigirl. What a horrible way to end the day. Big hugs to you and let's be thankful that Thanksgiving fights only happen once a year!
