Happy Thanksgiving

(E-i-C Vince:) Happy Thanksgiving to all of you readers out in cyberspace.  Some of you might have jobs that require a few hours on this holiday and others are located completely outside the United States of Turkeyweek, but have a great day wherever you are and whatever you are doing.


On Thanksgiving, I will be stuffing my face with food and spending the day with my family -- alas, my garage projects will have to wait until the weekend. Have a good Thanksgiving and come back tomorrow for our annual festival known as Bracq Friday.


  1. Yep, Canada beats you guys to Thanksgiving EVERY YEAR! But I still think you do it better... Best wishes to my American DT friends.

    1. Thanks Bobinott -- I think you guys have thanksgiving earlier due to the exchange rate...but that is only a gut feeling! Enjoy Bracq Friday.

    2. Nah,its because our growing season is shorter, as we're North of most of you :-)

    3. Yeah, PeterN is right. The turkeys ripen earlier up here. Apparently it is a genetic adaptation due to less exposure to daylight. However, we now enjoy a thriving export market to the US, because by November, they are pre-frozen.

    4. I forgot to ad that we are working on other transportation-related applications for turkeys. Here is an early prototype:

      and the upcoming production version, planned for a December release:

  2. What Bobinott said x2. Happy Thanksgiving. Looking forward to Bracq Friday!

  3. I will never look at a Beetle the same way again.
