For my family and friend in the United States I wish you all the happiest of Thanksgivings as you gather with your families and friends.
This particular video is not available for embeding but is worth clicking to on YouTube for the incredible voice of Jussi Björling.
To think that there once was a time when in America - and Canada - people watched programmes like The Voice of Firestone every Sunday night and heard great classical singers in operatic arias and what is now known as cross over music.
And my wish for all those who are "gathered together" and indeed for all those I love and care for is echoed in this card from Vintage Holiday Crafts: May your joys be as countless as the golden grains.
