Happy Thanksgiving!

 Some of our most loyal fans know our secret... shhhhh.
We are FROM San Francisco but currently located in Plymouth, Massachusetts. We hope that doesn't cause you shock and disappointment-- we're still in "the city by the bay."

Plymouth may not be as glamorous as SFO,
but it's been a case of "Bloom Where You're Planted" for us. And it does have its fun, especially on Thanksgiving Day! We actually made 7th on a list of "Most Overrated Places to Visit," even beating out the famous location below!

Yes, this is our claim to fame-- a rock!

This is supposedly where the Pilgrims set foot when disembarking from the Mayflower. We're skeptical, but it does have its own history now. See that crack in the middle? That happened when the British tried to forcibly take it away from the colonists, because it was a powerful symbol of freedom. I can just picture the two sides pulling on it like a tug of war, then having it split in half while everyone falls backwards! Truly, a great moment in history.
It is currently enshrined in a monument on Water Street, to prevent tourists from chipping pieces off.

The Saturday before Thanksgiving, our Rock puts its red sneakers on, and they let it out of the cage for a parade.

Now you don't see that at Macy's do you?

So, we just wish you a Happy Thanksgiving...
it's the same meal, but always a little bit different circumstances for each one of us, year to year. We are having a quiet one with just the four of us. We sincerely hope wherever you may be, you have much to be thankful for today.
