Urban Turkeys
Lovely idea for a blog, and should definitely be an annual event.

The only challenge looks like it would be shortlisting the nominations!

Re: Private highway in Texas
Hi Rick. It'll definitely need to be an annual thing! And I'm sure we'll have more than five turkeys next year, as we'll have had a whole year to single them out.

I'd love to know which ones you disagreed with and why. And thanks for the link -- I hadn't heard about that before. I don't think I agree with it either. I think that smarter planning would have accomplished the same goal without creating a whole separate private highway, which seems like a waste of land.

Private highway in Texas
Urban Turkeys sounds like something that could be a fun annual feature.

I don't agree with all your nominees,  but I liked the pix of the real urban turkeys--poor lost birds!

The LA mess is legendary and your note about the toll road made me think of the new private highway in Texas. Not something I advoicate, but interesting when moneyed interest move ahead where government does not.

Looking out for your neighbor
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone, it is great to be aliive and healthy!  Whatever created the me-ism attitude, me mine and nothing more is the biggest turkey.  Hopefully people will began to look out for others and work as a team.  The game/ exercise  in the Stephen CoveySeven Habit of Successful people class that showed people advance much farther as a whole when they work together.

Re: Happy Thanksgiving
Thanks for the link, Sheli. I just checked it out and was pretty amused. A lot of holidays have become commercialized over the years, and this is proof that Thanksgiving is no exception!

Re: Clever Take on Urban Turkeys
Thanks Hazel! I'm glad you liked the post. Truth be told, there are many other Urban Turkeys to name, but these five in particular seemed to need a public outing. :)

Re: Government number 1 yes.
CitySolver, I hear you there. The government says what the people want to hear, but as the all-too-true cliche goes "actions speak louder than words." It's pretty simple: If you're cutting resources for education, you are not committed to job growth.

Re: Happy Thanksgiving
Hi Sheli. Thank you! Wow these infographics are fantastic, thank you so much for sharing! I just learned a lot more about the holiday season in the US than I knew previously.

Happy Thanksgiving
Great post Nicole!


Happy belated Thanksgiving, hope you are all enjoying your holiday time.

 

For a bit of fun, here's a great infographic that shows how the cost of Thanksgiving dinner has risen, where the turkeys are farmed, and how many billion lbs of pumpkin are produced!

Government number 1 yes.
The governement is very fond of not knowing what the right hand is doing while taking with the left. In the UK we cut public resources like libraries and then say we need to invest in better education. If there is logic in that then they are magicians!!
