On Turkeys & Travel

If you've ever wondered how the turkey got its name, Larry Tise's "Why Is Our Thanksgiving Bird Called a Turkey?" is your recommended reading for today. Even if you haven't ever wondered, it's a fascinating story.

I'm headed off for a few days at home with family and food and all that good stuff, so I probably won't post very often (if at all) until Sunday. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

(P.S. My travel reading will consist of some random recent articles, plus Mary Roach's Spook and Susan Jacoby's The Age of American Unreason).

Before going on any trip whether you are driving it or going by another other modes of transportation, it is important to have a variety of travel maps available. The last thing anybody wants to have happen is getting lost on his or her trip. Being lost takes valuable time away from enjoying yourself if it is a pleasure trip, or takes away from working time if the trip is for business.
