I suppose I will die never knowing what pumpkin pie tastes like when you have room for it.”   —   Robert Brault

(Ol’ Bob seems to be a bit of an internet enigma.  We know he’s an author.  But there are very few pictures of the man.  No bio, and no obvious social media presence.  I guess that’s the way he likes it . . . uh huh, uh huh!  But, personally, I have not had his problem.  I always have room for pumpkin pie.  I might have to wait about a half hour following Thanksgiving dinner these days, but it was never a problem when I was younger!  The last few years I’ve been buying pumpkin pie weeks before Thanksgiving.  And, hopefully, I’ll be buying – and eating – them for the next few weeks too.  The best thing about it is I’m the only one in my house who likes it!  But, I do behave myself.  Just one slice a day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Literally just a slice of pumpkin pie : pokemon

Irv Kupcinet

An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day.”   —   Irv Kupcinet

(A wonderfully clever quote, from the famous Chicago newspaper columnist, TV talk show host, and radio personality.  Not being a Midwesterner, the name didn’t ring a bell for me.  But, he had a storied six decade long career!  He’s been gone now for seventeen years, and this is his first quote to make it to the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  So, We welcome “Kup” to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

He who thanks but with the lips thanks but in part; the full, the true thanksgiving comes from the heart.”   —   J.A. Shedd

(I hope you’re all listening, friends and kiddies!  The world has more than enough platitudes.  Ya gotta have heart!!  I hope you all had a warm and wonderful, heartfelt and satisfying Thanksgiving.  I know I did.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I always liked the Dalai Lama.  Good guy.  It took me a little while to see that he was the author of this quote.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Is your glass half full or half empty? Science can tell us why you are  either an optimist or a pessimist | Metro News

When asked if my cup is half-full or half-empty my only response is that I am thankful I have a cup.”   —   Sam Lefkowitz

(Who???  Beats me.  This seems to be his one and only quote.  Google has him as an author, but no books come up, if you query that.  It looks like he might be a sports reporter for the Boston Celtics.  But, I’m obligated to welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club!  I think this is just part of the Thanksgiving theme.  I thought the quote was a little hokey.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Ina Garten on What She'd Serve Donald Trump: 'A Subpoena' - Eater

If you think about a Thanksgiving dinner, it’s really like making a large chicken.”   —   Ina Garten

(I was able to see the first five words of this quote right off the bat!  And, the rest came very quickly too.  My daughter is a big fan of her cooking show, “Barefoot Contessa”.  This appears to be the first Ina Garten quote to be used for the Cryptoquote, so we welcome her to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

One small act in gift giving can create a ripple effect across the world

The least movement is of importance to all nature.  The entire ocean is affected by a pebble.”   —   Blaise Pascal

(Ah, the butterfly effect!  1. As John Gribbin writes in his cult-classic work Deep Simplicity, “some systems … are very sensitive to their starting conditions, so that a tiny difference in the initial ‘push’ you give them causes a big difference in where they end up, and there is feedback, so that what a system does affects its own behavior.”  But, as General Stanley McChrystal writes in Team of TeamsThe reality is that small things in a complex system may have no effect or a massive one, and it is virtually impossible to know which will turn out to be the case.  – – – from The Butterfly Effect: Everything You Need to Know About This Powerful Mental Model, a great article in fs.blog!  The idea of Chaos theory is very interesting.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Lemon Velvet Cake - homemade, light textured, and great lemon flavour!The Most Amazing Chocolate Cake

A house is not beautiful because of its walls, but because of its cakes.”   —   Russian Saying

(How can anyone argue with such logic???  Alright, maybe a pie guy could, but I would side with the cake people.  And, it’s got to be a rich and decadent chocolate cake!  No namby pamby vanilla, or red velvet for me.  Ooh, I do like a nice lemon cake though!  And, I like coffee cakes with either cinnamon, or almond paste.  But, this time of year I do eat more than my share of pumpkin pie, and the occasional slice of pecan pie.  I probably like a greater variety of pies than I actually do cakes, because so many fruits lend them selves to making delicious pies.   But, I’ve never heard of a Thanksgiving cake.  Have you?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
