Welcome to page 54!

Nice new waterfall there, Pat! Great work on it! :thumbsup:


Love the two new mini-falls.  I was messing around with plopping water and rocks and the like and realize it's gonna take a long time to master that aspect of gameplay.  So once again, my hat's off to you and excellent update today &apls  Look forward to tomorrow.

So today is the big day huh?  Well, I hope you come home with a clean bill of health :thumbsup:  You can tell me all about it tonight over YM :thumbsup:

Great work on those PhotoShop effects.  I've not figured out how to do "cut outs" like that yet (guess I need to read some tutorials). 

I'm very impressed with your stamina and creativity for this OSITM month Pat - you really are doing a grand job.



Fantastic picture my friend, this is so réalistic and superb

 &apls &apls Excellent photoshopping that you have done . Nice waterfalls too. Always the same who have all the talent  ;D


Hey there Pat!
Very nice PS-editing you did there. I like it very much.  :thumbsup: I would only suggest that you "blur" the edges just slightly (aprox 9px brush size and strenght set to aprox 50%).

As for the update, I love that fall. It looks very nice.  &apls

Looking foward to see more.

 Well Pat, if they are still poking and proding you it means that can't find what's wrong, maybe it's all in your head.  ::) Maybe you are going to the wrong kind of doctor.  ;) Just kidding my friend, I'm sure all is going to be okay.  :thumbsup:

I have no complaints with the TPW yet, from what I've seen you do with it.  The streams in those two pics are quite nice indeed. :thumbsup:  I am ready for more.  More importantly, I hope all goes well for you health-wise, Pat.

Double Shot Thursday Update Part 1 Special Turkey Day.....

Most stories of Thanksgiving history start with the harvest celebration of the pilgrims and the indians that took place in the autumn of 1621. Although they did have a three-day feast in celebration of a good harvest, and the local indians did participate, this "first Thanksgiving" was not a holiday, simply a gathering. There is little evidence that this feast of thanks led directly to our modern Thanksgiving Day holiday. Thanksgiving can, however, be traced back to 1863 when Pres. Lincoln became the first president to proclaim Thanksgiving Day. The holiday has been a fixture of late November ever since.

However, since most school children are taught that the first Thanksgiving was held in 1621 with the pilgrims and indians, let us take a closer look at just what took place leading up to that event, and then what happened in the centuries afterward that finally gave us our modern Thanksgiving.

The Pilgrims who sailed to this country aboard the Mayflower were originally members of the English Separatist Church (a Puritan sect). They had earlier fled their home in England and sailed to Holland (The Netherlands) to escape religious persecution. There, they enjoyed more religious tolerance, but they eventually became disenchanted with the Dutch way of life, thinking it ungodly. Seeking a better life, the Separatists negotiated with a London stock company to finance a pilgrimage to America. Most of those making the trip aboard the Mayflower were non-Separatists, but were hired to protect the company's interests. Only about one-third of the original colonists were Separatists.

The Pilgrims set ground at Plymouth Rock on December 11, 1620. Their first winter was devastating. At the beginning of the following fall, they had lost 46 of the original 102 who sailed on the Mayflower. But the harvest of 1621 was a bountiful one. And the remaining colonists decided to celebrate with a feast -- including 91 Indians who had helped the Pilgrims survive their first year. It is believed that the Pilgrims would not have made it through the year without the help of the natives. The feast was more of a traditional English harvest festival than a true "thanksgiving" observance. It lasted three days.

Governor William Bradford sent "four men fowling" after wild ducks and geese. It is not certain that wild turkey was part of their feast. However, it is certain that they had venison. The term "turkey" was used by the Pilgrims to mean any sort of wild fowl.

Another modern staple at almost every Thanksgiving table is pumpkin pie. But it is unlikely that the first feast included that treat. The supply of flour had been long diminished, so there was no bread or pastries of any kind. However, they did eat boiled pumpkin, and they produced a type of fried bread from their corn crop. There was also no milk, cider, potatoes, or butter. There was no domestic cattle for dairy products, and the newly-discovered potato was still considered by many Europeans to be poisonous. But the feast did include fish, berries, watercress, lobster, dried fruit, clams, venison, and plums.

This "thanksgiving" feast was not repeated the following year. Many years passed before the event was repeated. It wasn't until June of 1676 that another Day of thanksgiving was proclaimed. On June 20 of that year the governing council of Charlestown, Massachusetts, held a meeting to determine how best to express thanks for the good fortune that had seen their community securely established. By unanimous vote they instructed Edward Rawson, the clerk, to proclaim June 29 as a day of thanksgiving. It is notable that this thanksgiving celebration probably did not include the Indians, as the celebration was meant partly to be in recognition of the colonists' recent victory over the "heathen natives,".

A hundred years later, in October of 1777 all 13 colonies joined in a thanksgiving celebration. It also commemorated the patriotic victory over the British at Saratoga. But it was a one-time affair.

George Washington proclaimed a National Day of Thanksgiving in 1789, although some were opposed to it. There was discord among the colonies, many feeling the hardships of a few pilgrims did not warrant a national holiday. And later, President Thomas Jefferson opposed the idea of having a day of thanksgiving.

It was Sarah Josepha Hale, a magazine editor, whose efforts eventually led to what we recognize as Thanksgiving. Hale wrote many editorials championing her cause in her Boston Ladies' Magazine, and later, in Godey's Lady's Book. Finally, after a 40-year campaign of writing editorials and letters to governors and presidents, Hale's obsession became a reality when, in 1863, President Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday in November as a national day of Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving was proclaimed by every president after Lincoln. The date was changed a couple of times, most recently by Franklin Roosevelt, who set it up one week to the next-to-last Thursday in order to create a longer Christmas shopping season. Public uproar against this decision caused the president to move Thanksgiving back to its original date two years later. And in 1941, Thanksgiving was finally sanctioned by Congress as a legal holiday, as the fourth Thursday in November.

Nice history, Pat.  It's easy for me to just think "Turkey" when I think about Thanksgiving, so it's nice to see it put into perspective.

Pretty cool Pat, job well done my friend.
Happy Thanks Giving Day to You and Everyone else.

Call me Robin, please.


Thank you for that, Pat!  I always enjoy reading the true background behind our various traditions and holidays.  It's funny that, more often than not, what we think and profess as the "original" or "true meaning" of things is often not even close to accurate.  Imagine if we weren't such a young country... we'd never get any of our history right!  :D

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Pat... and remember not to feed the hodag!

Good history lesson, Pat. You are always so thoughtful about things like that. And a Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate the holiday.




My very best wishes to you for Thanksgiving.

Its always a pleasure to pop in and see what you've been up to and this time has
also the added bonus of a History lesson. I never knew the origins of the festival (as we don't celebrate it
in Europe) so it's good to find out - Thank you for that :D

Great stuff you do with TPW- I wonder whats at the end of the river ;D

Till the next time
take care
