Welcome to the Day After Thanksgiving Link-o-Rama!
The Friday after Thanksgiving is sometimes called Black Friday, due to the hordes of shoppers that traditionally descend upon retail establishments on that day. It marks the official beginning of the year’s orgy of consumerism. The day can also be called Buy Nothing Day, as a day of protest against consumerism, and it can be observed simply by staying home and eating leftovers. Guess how I spent my day? Did I mention that my favorite part of Thanksgiving is having pie for breakfast the next day? Mmm, pie…
Perhaps it’s no longer true than an urban area cannot be an agricultural area. The basement of a former bank in Japan has been converted into an underground farm, producing organic tomatoes, lettuce, strawberries, rice, and other fruits and vegetables. This could become a lucrative adventure, as I undertand such commodies are somewhat costly in Japan.
I had no idea that the CoCo3 supposedly had a 256-color mode. Greatest untold secret or wistful fantasy? We may never know. Sometimes, I miss the days when computers were so much simpler, and users had such control over their every move. But then, I realize that they’re still here, if you know where to look.
