Spending Thanksgiving with YouTube and Jimi Hendrix

One of the strangest things about living in England, so far away from family and friends in New England, is when Thanksgiving arrives. There’s no one around to share the holiday with that understands what it’s like on a day like today back home. Family that you haven’t seen in awhile, good food, NFL, a lazy day and of course, remembering all of the things to be thankful for. It may sound sad, but the only thing I’m doing today in keeping with tradition is eating a turkey sandwich. But that’s not to say there aren’t other things to do. I will spend some time acknowledging the things in my life to be thankful for, but aside from all the serious, sappy stuff, YouTube is one of them.

We can’t get enough of YouTube, and I am thankful for the fact that there are so many free videos available at our finger tips. There have been times when Dave and I will sit in front of the computer with a good bottle of red wine, taking turns introducing new bands and videos from each of our own countries, taking pride in our tastes in music. Maybe we’ll do that tonight, but while all of you in the States are sitting around watching the Macy’s Parade, eating turkey and then enjoying the the Broncos vs. the Chiefs game without me, I’ll be here in Oxford thinking about all of you and probably listening to some good music.

Jimi Hendrix is always a good cure for feeling down, so maybe the video of Jimi playing “Hear My Train a Comin’” will do the trick.
