Happy Thanksgiving Day!

For some people, the day is marked by watching the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York, football, and overeating.

We've added another tradition.

Watching pumpkins getting chunked.

It started two years ago and now we can't help watch with awe and fascination at how some folks will spend more than $100,000 to build air cannons, trebuchets and catapults and any number of other designs to send a pumpkin towards the magic distance of one mile. No one has ever managed that, but that makes the mystical number all the more special.
