Hurricane Names for 2010
Why do I list the Hurricane Names each year? It's simple. One of these hurricanes could be the next big one. And if one is, that hurricane name will be the most unpopular baby name in the United States.

Thanksgiving, A Time for Family.
The days of eating dinner around the dining room table are long gone. I remember eating each meal at home with the whole family -- breakfast, lunch and dinner. We've now replaced home cooked meals with fast-food and car seats. Prepared foods are also very popular. Just visit your local supermarket, and it will look more like a smorgasbord than a grocery store. Then the forth Thursday of November comes along and everything changes.
