I have much to be thankful for this year, including but by no means limited to all of you who take the time to read the Blog.  So, like the Northern District, I will be taking the remainder of the week off to spend time with family and friends.  Have a happy Thanksgiving.  And, enjoy U.S. Patent No. 7,102,301 (by Chicago-area inventors) which teaches holiday lights with user-selectable lights.  Just think, lights that stay up all year round.  Anyone who has spent a November, December or January evening in the Midwest putting up or taking down lights, can appreciate this invention.

I will see you on Monday.
