Smoked Wagyu brisket is a big winner for Thanksgiving http://matellis.com/2013/10/09/wagyu-beef-for-thanksgiving/
A delicious way to cook a big Thanksgiving dinner is to smoke a large brisket. Wagyu beef of course. It's very easy and will make a big impression.

Google has withdrawn support for various widgets I was using to send SMS messages from my desk, citing SMS support in Google Hangouts.

Completely agree with Simon. I wrote a similar thing in 2008 http://matellis.com/2008/12/24/cisco-the-cloud/ PaaS is the best way to compete with AWS. Once folks fully get their heads around IaaS there will be a big demand for scalable PaaS if it's available. I hear one or two incumbents talk about taking this route but not sure if they will be able to execute. Let's see, should be an interesting few years as it pans out.
