Getting In Touch With My Inner Wampanoag For Thanksgiving

The Wampanpoags were the Indians that shared noms with the Pilgrims on that very first Thanksgiving. You can find their website here and a screen cap below.

They've melded the Old Ways with the New Ways pretty nicely.
On the occasion of Thanksgiving, and in concert with the Wampanoags on that website, here are some of the things I'm thankful for:

  • Web servers
  • HTML
  • Digital cameras
  • Photoshop
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Siding for houses
  • Asphalt shingles
  • Cars
  • Machine-woven cloth
  • Machine-washable garments
  • Smartly-tailored suits
  • Casinos
  • Baseball caps
  • Hoodies
  • Foldable nylon / aluminum chairs with coverings
  • Chain link fences
  • Home Depot / Lowe's garden department where they sell flowering shrubs
On this day, I thank God for old traditions and new technologies, whether they came from "my people" or yours.
