Let's hear it for the non-traditional Thanksturkey. Thanksgiving is supposed to be a family holiday, but one Thanksgiving, I found myself alone. My mother was off to a relatives, my sister and her family had been invited elsewhere, and there I was, alone in New York City, having recently left my...

News reports say stranded cruise passengers survived on nothing but spam, mayo sandwiches and booze! Booze! Booze! Sounds like my diet from 1985-89.
