    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and a special thanks to our wonderful host, Nobugsonme, for creating, maintaining, and enhancing the forum.

    Happy Thanksgiving for those who celebrate it.

    In the UK it will simply be Thursday and I have part 3 of a screening project to conduct which is in conjunction with a University to better understand the dynamics of an infestation in a residential care setting. Its the kind of project that often gets converted into a paper once the genetic data is mapped into the project data.

    I will be thinking about you all having you celebrations.

    Above I wrote:

    I just read it and noticed that it should have been written:

    Thank you, Nobugs. You rock!!! (or I could have written: Thank you, Nobugs; you rock!!!)

    But the bottom line is, she improves the quality of our lives through her dedication to this forum.

    Happy Turkey/Thanksgiving day to all in the US, happy Thursday to all folks elsewhere.

    Regardless of where you are, it is always a good time to reflect on things you are thankful for. I found this especially helpful during my trauma. It really helped to sit back and think about how grateful I was for my family, my friends, my job, my home (bb free or not), my health. I also thought about people in much, much, worse situations. People with diseases, living in poverty, living in wars, etc.

    It's easy to see your situation as the center of the universe when you are going through a bb situation. It's a very good idea to take a wider view. This is just a bug. There a so many worse things in this world. Be bless full for what you have and try to make a better world around you.

    Much love,
    BIS

    When you look at it, Thanksgiving is kinda-sorta a weird word isn't it? But, we've all been used to hearing it since we were all little kids. Thanksgiving, giving thanks.

    As per the passage below, FDR made it law and established it as a permanent holiday in the US back in 1941.
    (source wikpedia)
    Thanksgiving, currently celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November by federal legislation in 1941, has been an annual tradition in the United States by presidential proclamation since 1863 and by state legislation since the Founding Fathers of the United States. Historically, Thanksgiving has traditionally been a celebration of the blessings of the (agricultural) year, including the harvest.

    Several countries outside the US celebrate a similar holiday according to online sources but not all.

    Wouldn't it be cool if everyone did all on the same day?

    Wouldn't it be cool if everyone could get along like John Lennon suggested in "Imagine"?

    Hell, we can't all get along just on this friggin Forum so how the heck are we supposed to get along as humans on a global basis???

    Best wishes to all for a bug free Thanksgiving ! ! !

    Not too bad at the time. Mostly slushy. Hubby had to fly through JFK to get home and miraculously there were no delays! Stay warm and cozy!

    As Gandhi said,

    Be the change you wish to see in the world.

    I think we can all do that.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    I can't put it better than my old forum pal Cilecto, Happy Thanksgiving, to those who are celebrating, and happy Thursday to everyone else!

    Daylight-- I can't take credit for assembling any expertise here-- it was completely self-selection.
    Thanks to all who share their expertise, support, time, friendliness and humor with us.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all! Lets take this time out to slow down our busy lives and reflect on what we do have. Be blessed for family, friends, health, and happiness. Don't forget, someone, somewhere is happy with less than what you have! Cherish every moment!

    In my haste to write, I didn't consider my words carefully enough. I meant to say that because this site was created by Nobugs, the experiences and expertise of all those who join and post are shared with whomever reads this forum. Without the site, I would be wandering in cyberspace trying to find answers to my questions.

    I know that all who join and/or view the site have discovered it on their own, just like I did. I am grateful for this privilege. During the stressful times of dealing with bb's, this site is a welcoming and reassuring place. Nobugs keeps the site safe and maintains it with dignity and civility.

    I hope that explains my thoughts better. I just wanted to express my thanks.

    Nobugs,
    Don't sell yourself short. Without this site there would be a lot more bald folks out there (as in 'I've lost my mind to the point of ripping out my own hair'). No offense to those of you who are bald. I find it sexy in some and others just don't have a choice (my cousin went through chemo/radiation for breast cancer but she is strong and beat it).
    So we all do need to take a moment and be thankful, for Thanksgiving or Thursday. And Nobugs, you are responsible for a lot of our sanity, via this site! I know I would have none left if it weren't for Bedbuggers! It took awhile (I can be slow as times) but Thank You!

    And thank you, all of you, for your great questions, answers, support, feedback, and so much more.

    Happy Thanksgiving
    Happy Thursday

    NOT AN EXPERT but a survivor, twice. Read all the green stickies above, learn everything you can, and listen to the expert advice and your nightmare will end. You too can survive this!
