My favorite holiday of the year is finally here! There is nothing better than Thanksgiving. No gifts or religion to worry about. Just food, drink, sports and family. Looks like the perfect morning for the Turkey Trot, hope to see everyone down there at 5:45AM. HA! The Detroit Lions actually have a chance of winning their third TDAY game in a row. But the real star is the TDAY dinner. Personally my favorites are turkey, sweet potatoes and stuffing. Mashed, rolls and cranberry are OK but real stuffers! Dessert? Pumpkin pie.

How about MSU! 5th in Football and 3rd in Basketball. No other college can boast that. If MSU can go on like this for another 20 years, then we will see more Michigander’s wearing green and white than that dreadful maize and blue. Warning: We must beat PSU on Saturday and avoid a tremendous game letdown. We are only favored by 1.5 points so the experts think it will be tight. I’m ready for Indy so let’s blow them away.

It was great to see Max & Essie last weekend in Malibu. Very nice beach homes, very nice weather and very nice restaurants. But nothing beats home cooking and the only thing Essie likes to do better than name polish is to cook. July 2017 they will be free to do it again, I am waiting patiently to see what that may be.

Does it seem like Christmas is only a month away? No way right? As usual the year flew by once Labor Day came and went. Loving this November weather. Sunny and 50 today.

TNG Worldwide is only one of 13 Michigan-based companies to win Best Workplaces 7 years in a row (every year the competition has been held). That includes four top 5 finishes in the past five years. No doubt we have the best talent in the beauty business.

With gas less than $2.00 a gallon are people spending more and are they happier? According to recent polls the answer is no. In fact gas prices ranging from $2 to $3.50 a gallon have little affect on behavior. Losers this holiday season: Apparel especially with the warm weather. Winners include salons and spas, restaurants and travel.

The pro beauty business has been unusually quiet in 2015. Where is the innovation going to come from next?

Got to love that Apple knows your driving patterns. Leaving the house, leaving the gym, going home, it knows where you are going and gives you the status of the drive. Nothing is sacred anymore.

Speaking of Apple, does anyone walk anywhere without carrying their phone? Once Apple Pay gets going the era of the men’s wallet will finally end. The government has to figure out how to get the driver’s license on the smartphone sooner than later.

OK, back to Thanksgiving meal. How long to consume 5000+ calories? No matter how hard we try, we are done eating in 20 minutes OR less (not counting seconds and thirds).

Happy Thanksgiving!
