Thanksgiving is a time for family and for sharing, but use caution when it comes to your family pet. The American Veterinary Medical Association offers the following tips: 1. Table scraps are never a good idea. Pets' digestive systems can't handle fatty foods. 2. Keep trash containers closed and secure so pets can't get into them. 3. Do not feed pets turkey bones. They can splinter and damage the animal's intestines. 4. Keep animals away from dessert tables as well, since these types of food -- especially chocolate -- can be harmful to animals.

ShopRite of Parkville and its parent company, Klein's Family Markets, distributed items to provide 100 Thanksgiving dinners in the Parkville community during an event last week. The store had fielded nominations from customers for families that, due to economic challenges, might not otherwise be able to have a Thanksgiving meal this year. Names of families were entered and names were randomly selected for the Nov. 21 distribution.

Thanksgiving comes poignantly. The all-American holiday that traditionally brings the gathering together of families will be saddened in many a hearth this year by thoughts of loved ones far away, facing danger in service to their country.How much the world has changed since Thanksgiving, 1989! President Bush was at snow-covered Camp David, reveling in news stories reporting how crowds in Prague were marching for democracy, led by a playwright and former political prisoner, Vaclav Havel, who was destined to become president of Czechoslovakia.

We're looking for Marylanders who've made a ritual of eating their turkey and trimmings with friends rather than family - perhaps the same ones every year. Or maybe you're the one who hosts a group of friends or co-workers. We'd like to interview you for a story about how friends create holiday rituals at a traditional "family" time. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number and a brief synopsis of your annual ritual by Friday. Please put "Thanksgiving with friends" in the subject line.

Thanksgiving is a time when we pause to gratefully eat large amounts of food in memory of the Pilgrims, a band of courageous and deeply devout people, unless it turns out that they were dirtbags.You never know anymore. Historians are constantly turning up shocking new evidence proving that everything you ever learned in school was wrong. For example, historians now tell us that the electric light bulb was not, in fact, invented by Alexander Graham Bell. It was invented 3,000 years ago by the Aztecs.
