No.
Thanksgiving in America was declared by the Pilgrims and Puritans after the 1621 harvest. It has zero cultural relevance in Australia.
Halloween is also not really a thing despite how much the chocolatiers and supermarkets want it to be.
Basically, from Labour Day on the first Sunday in October, until Christmas, there's nothing.

Mariah Carey and Paul McCartney start up in the shops from about late October.

That aside, I don't like the Puritans. They went to America so that they could enact more persecution because they thought that James I hadn't gone far enough in reforming the church and they hated the toleration of Catholics. They would eventually be responsible for having Charles I's head hacked off.

Yeah it is kind of weird how a lot of holidays in America started. Most of them aren't celebrated in the spirit that they were originally intended when first conceived, but are now just an excuse for higher consumerism and for Americans to have parties or family gatherings.

I'm not to much into parties, small ones maybe - BUT I do enjoy our Family Gatherings :)

I got PCSX2 (a Playstation 2 Emulator) up and running, so now I can play the various EA NASCAR games as well as Gran Turismo on my laptop wherever I go :D

Right now trying out NASCAR 07, aside from a minor hiccup here and there, and some slow loading screens, it runs basically flawlessly. The stutters it does have are so minor it barely impacts the playability of the game, even amongst the pack.

Now to find out how to extract textures to be used as references for NR2003 schemes :rolleyes:

the slow loading may be "emulation" of the famous PS2 slow loading thing...

Finally got to see my Mossie first hand...
Mossie Noc18 2021.jpg
WW2 era

de Havilland Mosquito​

The Brits, Aussies, and Canadians built these during the war and they were flown by all three air forces as well as the USAAF...the Germans thought so much of it that they actually tried to copy it's design... it was made of plywood!

Dear Supercars (and NASCAR),

Why?

Why did you both decide to go up Gen-N whatever and instead not jump on the Trans-Am train?

Yer, both off yer trolley. This is what both NASCAR and Supercars coulda/shoulda/woulda looked like.

Love, Rollo

The pattern they flew and the positioning of the crowd it made it very difficult to get a good shot of it in the air

I am rewatching the Bristol night race where Smoke throws his helmet at Matt Kenseth....


ELI5:
How come Chevrolet didn't put a V8 in the Impala 8 onwards, and how come Ford didn't do likewise with Fusion?

How come these two automotive companies were both writing cheques on the Bank of Kudos that they refused to cash?

I'm continuing to watch NASCAR 21 Ignition videos despite the game being so bad because it is basically at the right intersection of terribleness that I end up laughing my a** off at how pear shaped this "game" is x'D
