1. We had gone to #Nantucket for a family August vacation. Our boys were about 3 and 4. When we left, we detoured through #Boston to take them to a #RedSox game. The plane was a "puddle-jumper" small twin-turbo-prop aircraft. The flight to Boston was bumpy.
2. As the plane was violently bouncing around people on it were clutching their armrests for dear-life while my oldest boy was standing up taking the whole thing in like he was on an amusement park ride. Then, out of the blue he shouted, "Mayday Mayday Mayday, We're going in!"
3. A man seated behind us who made for possibly a WWII or Korea era vet looked like he'd touched a live wire and shouted, "Will you shut that f*cking kid up?" And then, without any input from me, my son sat back

🧵 I did 10 parent teacher conferences yesterday where my kids have an A in the class & I had nothing to discuss. I used the time to tell #TeacherTwitter a few things:
👉I know you risked your own health & life, & your family’s, to come to work in a #pandemic. #ThankYou

👉I know you spent 1.5 yrs teaching our kids virtually, navigating unfamiliar technology, staring at a little dot on your monitor instead of a class full of kids, not knowing if the kids with cameras off were there, wondering about the ones who never connect. #ThankYou

👉I know you are now trying to teach students this year’s content, but also content that was learned & forgotten during the #pandemic…or never learned at all. And that, as you do this, your schools, & in turn you, will be held accountable for how your students are performing. /3

Him: I want the spinach

Her: you can’t have spinach

Him: it’s thanksgiving!

Her: that doesn’t mean your kidneys are suddenly fine

Him: all i had today was three hard boiled eggs!
Her: that doesn’t make spinach ok!

Him: fine

Her: fine

Me: so no spinach?

Marissa Fuentes from Havertown #Pennsylvania was 32 wks pregnant when she was placed on life support due to COVID. 7 months later she returned home to her family, including her infant son, who was safely delivered via emergency c-section #TheySurvivedCovid…
Her nurse, Elena Casanova, said most patients average 10-15 days on ECMO support. Fuentes lasted around five and half months.

Casanova called Fuentes a medical miracle.…
Fuentes was not vaccinated, but now says "If you can get the vaccine, get it...Because it could save you, it could save your child's life."

#HappyThanksgiving and here are the words of the first governing document in our nation's history. The Mayflower Compact:
IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, &c.
Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the first Colony in the northern Parts of Virginia; Do by these Presents, solemnly and mutually, in the Presence of God and one another,

My mother, with her broken foot, showed up tonight with two big boxes of food. Instead of resting her foot, she baked a turkey, made dressing, veggies, mashed potatoes, gravy, jello w/ pears like when I was a kid, a tub of my favorite olives, a can of cranberry (more)
De-canned and in her GOOD TUPPERWARE, no less. Also a can of whipped cream a pumpkin pie for my best friend James, who rents our first floor, and a cheese cake for Mike. An entire cheesecake. "I brought you half a turkey, I hope that's enough." (more)
Me: You didn't have to do so much work!
Mom: I realized yesterday I was the only one in my family who was alone.
Me: We were going to see you, you just weren't going to cook!
Mom: Enjoy your dinner!
Me: (bringing out her box) Here is a ham, a bottle of wine (more)

To @sunrisemvmt: we see that you have endorsed @RepDebHaaland for Secretary of the Interior. We believe that she can be a strong candidate, but only if she is accountable for her anti-Freedmen legislation and stands up against Jim Crow in Indian Territory.…
We must protect our planet, but you cannot allow your climate change activism to be complacent with apartheid and disenfranchisement of the descendants of enslaved people owned by Native American masters. We must be treated equally and Deb Haaland has undermined us in legislation
If you believe that #ALLBlackLivesMatter, including #BlackNatives, please call for @Deb4CongressNM to meet the demands of our petition as a part of your endorsement. All Natives should be treated with dignity and respect.

Today, we unapologetically thank God for America. We thank Him for the blessings of liberty & remember the Americans before us who risked everything to settle, work, & defend this land – all so that we might live free... (1/5) #HappyThanksgiving #StandUpForAmerica
...Today, we demonstrate our thanks by rejecting calls from Americans living bountifully off the sacrifices of these previous generations to tear America down from the inside... apology by apology, statue by statue, tradition by tradition, norm by norm... (2/5) #StandUpForAmerica
...Today, we recall the first recorded Thanksgiving - in Virginia – where after a decade of suffering & struggle in which 450 of 500 settlers at Jamestown perished in the first 2 yrs; suffering from Malaria, starvation, & battles w/ local Powhatans, the people persevered.. (3/ 5)

Mississippi is home the Choctaw and Cherokee Indian reservations. They own thousands of acres of land and commercial property in Mississippi Alabama and Louisiana. Casino Gaming and Agriculture are their major sources of income today.
As we celebrate “Thanksgivings” let us all remember the Native #ADOS who predate the “Founding Fathers” of this Country before 1775. #ADOS have been in America well before 1565.
Our #Genocide in America was aided and abetted by Native American Tribes and Chiefs of this land. The town of Greenwood is located in Leflore County, MS at the edge of the Delta farming country. It is named for Chief Greenwood LeFlore. Chief in 1830.…

1/ Here's the latest chapter in my #COVID19 drama.

On Saturday, I tested POSITIVE on a #PCR test.

Was I reinfected?

(Note: this is a multi-tweet THREAD; please read ALL tweets in the thread.)

#COVID #Covid_19 #COVID__19 #coronavirus #CoronavirusPandemic
2/ As some of you might recall, I had a brutal case of #COVID19 in the fall. I spent 17 days hospitalized at @NYULangone, including almost a week in the ICU on a ventilator.

#COVID #Covid_19 #COVID__19 #coronavirus #CoronavirusPandemic
3/ But the idea of having #COVID19 again surprised me, for a number of reasons.

First, reinfection is rare. And I was tested at the same time for #COVID antibodies, and I was still positive.

A thread for Thanksgiving:
When I was a kid I told my mother that I didn’t think anyone would ever love me enough to want to marry me. 1/7
When I was a teenager I considered marrying my first boyfriend — who was awful — even though I didn’t love him. (“I’ll have kids,” I told myself, “and I’ll love *them*.”) 2/7
In my early twenties I considered marrying a man who I’m fairly certain cheated on me because I figured I wouldn’t be lucky enough to convince a *third* person to date me. 3/7

While we think of Thanksgiving as an American holiday, we don't have the market cornered on harvest celebrations.

I explored autumn festivals from around the world in this series for @rosettastone , including sharing traditional recipes.
(2) First up we have Sukkot, a biblically-based holiday sometimes called the Festival of Booths where Jewish people celebrate the exodus of the Israelites and the bounty God provided.

Also, there's challah with honey and I'm ALWAYS down for that.…
(3) Next we have Olivagando. Italians celebrate la dolce goccia or the “sweet drop" with a fall festival. I chat with @chefchuck1 about why Italians value olive oil and how to choose a good one.

I also made a very pretty olive oil cake. You're welcome.…

It’s nice to be courteous and the best thing it doesn’t cost...
I list below Some #TooGoodNotToShare and #SimpleWaysToShowCourtesy AND DIGNITY..

1 In case you miss a call, drop a message as soon as possible if you're unable to call back
2 Pay back borrowed money as soon as possible no matter how little the amount is. Do not opt to clear your personal needs first at the cost of your lender's personal needs. IT'S BAD MANNERS!
Don't assume that they don't need it, and never make them ask you for it
3 Do not ask for a lift & make the person wait for you.Instead,position yourself at a convenient place so that they do not have to divert from their route
4 Turn volume down if watching video,playing music or playing game on your phone in a public place or better, use headphones

1) 4,400 words long—7,600 w/amendments—& just four simple pages, our Constitution is the oldest—and shortest—written one in the world.

Nothing more important than the creation of those four pages has occurred in our history as a nation. #HappyThanksgiving…
2) Our United States is a Constitutional Republic—characterized by a constitutionally limited government—with powers separated between three branches: executive, legislative, and judicial.
3) This structure was created precisely because our Founding Fathers were acutely aware of the dangers inherent in a pure democracy.

As John Adams famously noted, “There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”

I’ve been cooking for three days straight, but have legitimately been having a blast. Putting the finishing touches on everything now...

The Southern Spoon Bread is coming out perfect. ☺️
This might’ve taken 3 days to prepare, but was worth it. 😋
