YES! Solutions’ Thanksgiving dinner prep

The community that began with Southern Dragon’s Lakeside Diner continues. Today we collect news from outside the usual, and renew the discussion.

The killing of an Afghan policeman has been avenged by his family in the western Afghanistan province of Farah.   His mother, a daughter and daughter-in-law took up arms to retaliate after his was killed.

The woman, identified as Reza Gul, picked up arms after her son, who was leading a small group of police forces in a village in Farah, was killed by Taliban militants.


Afghan Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Siddiqui said the woman’s armed battle was a symbol of a major revolution and public uprising against the Taliban militants.

EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has announced a €315 plan to jumpstart the austerity economy with a jobs plan which includes infrastructure programs.

At its heart is a new €21bn fund that would provide loans for infrastructure projects. Mr Juncker hopes most of the rest of the money will come from private backers.

Only €16bn of the original money would come from the European Union budget.

However, critics doubt it can attract so much private investment.




Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, I’ll check in this p.m. and am helping with dinner for needy this morning so won’t be here until later.   All topics are of course welcome, as are all who wish to join the diner for conversation.
