    And good luck to any turkeys reading the site. And do you left-ponders still eat pumpkin pie? Sheesh, there is more to food you know!

    And if any of my fellow Brits haven't tried it.... Don't bother, no really, just don't!

    Wasn't that yesterday? Or have all my kindergarten lessons been forgotten?

    Jane (my wife) made pumpkin pie this halloween, and it was delicious! First time I'd had it and I was very impressed.

    You're not thinking of Halloween are you? They mess around with pumpkins then too.

    WIKI:- Thanksgiving, also known as Thanksgiving Day, is a harvest festival. Traditionally, it is a time to give thanks for the harvest and express gratitude in general. It is primarily a North American holiday which has generally become a national secular holiday with religious origins.

    The dates and whereabouts of the first Thanksgiving celebration are a topic of modest contention. Though the earliest attested Thanksgiving celebration was on September 8, 1565 in what is now Saint Augustine, Florida[1][2], the traditional "first Thanksgiving" is venerated as having occurred at the site of Plymouth Plantation, in 1621.

    Today, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. Thanksgiving dinner is held on this day, usually as a gathering of family members.
    I thought it was always 25th Nov. And I stand by my views on pumpkin pie, but the soup is worse!

    So if in canada then it is in october but if in the usa it is Today..

    We have a new logo for thanks giving too (thanks to sysman )
    Just a FYI it will revert to the normal edugeek logo only when the PST timezone (California) is no longer the 27th.

    Cool QUESTION ABOUT BRITISH VS. US SCHOOL STANDARDS?

    Hey everyone, just thought I'd post a question in this thread since you guys seem most likely to have the answer:

    IN TERMS OF TECHNOLOGY DEPARTMENT AT K-12 SCHOOLS, WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN STANDARD PRACTICES IN ENGLAND VS. THE US?

    I'm asking because we are launching a site <edited out due to being possible link-back spam - dos_box> (check it out) that sells powerpoints for teachers. Some of the powerpoints come with our own custom installers to install various powerpoint add-ins. So we're anticipating the IT department getting involved to help install it. And I've asked a bunch of questions in this forum and have received great answers, but we need to confirm that the US school system is very similar to the English school system in terms of managing computers, the IT department, etc.

    You can check a thread where we learned a lot from the members of this forum regarding this issue:
    HELP - Firewall issues regarding Downloadable products for teachers

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated?
