Now that Thanksgiving is over, I am sure everyone has tons of leftovers. What in the world to do with it all without having to eat the same thing four days in a row? Well, I gathered some sites that might be able to help with that.
Curried Mashed Potato Soup
Double Grilled Cheese and Turkey
Turkey and Waffles
Cranberry BBQ Sandwiches

As you most likely know Plymouth, MA was the site of the first Thanksgiving. It was where the first colony was established by those from the Mayflower in 1620.
Plymouth's population at the time would have been small as many people perished on the way over. The first Thanksgiving was to celebrate their deliverance.
In perspective, the U.S. census in 2010 showed Plymouth's population to be 56,468.
Plymouth has not always been the site of tourism but that of capitalism considering its location. Plymouth was known for its fishing, shipping and rope making. This helped the city to survive.
Now that tourism is its main attraction, one can see those things made most famous like Plymouth Rock. Although there is no written historical proof that this was the landing site of the pilgrims, it is the most well known and most identified place.
Although much of things that supposedly happened at Plymouth are most likely that of myth than anything, it is still known for its rich heritage and will be a tourist dream for years to come.
I want to thank each and everyone who visits my blog and buys my books. I am grateful for all of you.
From me to you, Happy Thanksgiving!

Not too long ago, I blogged about what aliens might eat.
So, I was thinking, with Thanksgiving coming up in the U.S. very soon, what would the aliens eat if they were invited to Thanksgiving dinner?
I have no clue. What do you think?
Tell me in a comment.

Where did they come from? Who put them there? What do they mean?
Some people say that they were created by ancient aliens to send messages to us or even back to where they came from. Others say that the crop circles are proof that aliens do exist and the intricacy of them is proof of their intelligence. Still others say they are complete hoaxes by kids just having fun.
What do you think? Let me know in a blog comment.

In my last blog I wrote about the Freedom Trail in Boston. This time, I want to talk to you about the Mohawk Trail in Western Massachusetts.
This trail once connected the Atlantic Native American Tribes with those of upper state New York for trade. On the National Register for Historic Places, the Mohawk Trail is around 62 miles and follows along the Millers and Deerfield Rivers.
Many points of interest and historical places are to be found along this driven route including camping, statues and other historical aspects to be seen. Beautiful forest areas accommodate this wonderful drive and allow for gorgeous scenic views of the Fall foliage.
In 2011, a 6 mile section of the road was damaged when Hurricane Katrina hit the area.
If you are ever in this area during the Fall, this is a no-miss trip to take.

An interesting place to visit in Boston to visit is called "The Freedom Trail". This area is 2.5 miles of brick-lined route that leads the follower to 16 different sites.
Along the route you can find museums, cemeteries, old churches and meeting places. Each place allows the wander to learn of the United States' founding history and how the American Revolution began.
It is certainly a place you want to visit.
