Around TechWhirl, we’re still enjoying the U.S. Thanksgiving weekend,
before facing the prospects of yet another frenetic holiday season.
Leftover turkey and pumpkin pie is much more appealing to us than risking
life and limb with Black Friday shopping. Smart technical communicators
long ago learned the virtues of online shopping, which leaves plenty of
time for reviewing and rereading the articles on TechWhirl, or contributing
to the interesting conversations on the email discussion

Have a great weekend!
