COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 119 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 94 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 33 DAYS


Morning Bers Fans! It's Thursday and you know we LOVE Thursdays. Our counts first of all are as follows: 119 days till Thanksgiving; 94 days till November; and 33 days till The Bers. Tomorrow we reach our milestone of saying Farewell to July before Welcoming in August on Saturday. Back to Back Milestones when we reach the end/beginning of a month. Our weekly count to Thanksgiving is 17 weeks. Moving along through the teens. And with it being Thursday we have a Thanksgiving poll which is the following today:
If Thanksgiving HAD to be moved to another month other than November what month would you move it to?
A.) December (put it right near Christmas)
B.) Spring Time (put it on the other side of the year when it still feels coolish like Thanksgiving)
C.) Summer (would be fun to have a summer Thanksgiving)
My answer is...B. If we HAD to move it (which I wouldn't want to) I wouldn't mind separating it from Halloween/Christmas where sometimes I feel it gets overlooked by some (not by us of course). And put it in March/April where it still feels cool out and you could celebrate it. Just my opinion.

Have a great Next to Last Day of July!

I am going to vote for C.) Summer, but to the very end of summer, when the season is just getting ready to change. This may because I would love to have a major holiday looming right now!

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 118 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 93 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 32 DAYS


Happy End of July! We're on the last day of the month folks and you know what that means. It's a MILESTONE DAY! And our counts today are the following: 118 to Thanksgiving, 93 to November, and 32 to The Bers. We have reached the milestone of reaching the end of July. We say farewell to the 8th month since November. Pretty crazy. As you know when one month ends the next day a new one begins and another milestone appears as we welcome in our 9th month since November being the month of August. Well I know you will all be here Saturday for that milestone. It's been a heck of a ride through summer so far. And we've still got a good amount to go. Thanks for the poll answers. I don't want to move Thanksgiving myself but it's fun to see where we would if we had to. Have a great End of July!​

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 117 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 92 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 31 DAYS


Happy August Arrives! The sun is shining to start off this Saturday morning and we arrive at another MILESTONE as we reach our 9th month beginning since November (that would be August). Amazing just another milestone along the way. Our official counts are the following: 117 days till Thanksgiving, 92 days till November, and 31 days till The Bers. Those are the 3 counts we continue to move along with on the right track. It's a great feeling to be in August folks. I really do love July but wow was it a hot and humid month. At least in August you can see Autumn ahead of us even though we have plenty of warm/hot/humid days left this year. Next milestone? Oh that will happen in 17 days when we reach the 100 day marker to Thanksgiving. That will happen on a THURSDAY too with a special poll. Have a great August Arrives!​

I decided today that I needed to do something to celebrate August 1st and set the mood for Fall. I'm going to make a "test batch" of my homemade baked mac and cheese that I usually bring to Thanksgiving dinner at my wife's family's house. I bought the cheeses already, and while I will likely change up the blend for Thanksgiving - today's batch is using dubliner, aged white cheddar, and gouda - it should be a decent taste test.

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 116 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 91 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 30 DAYS


Happy August Sunday! Here we go into the 2nd day of the month with 3 counts to start off your Sunday (hopefully with coffee). 116 days are left until Thanksgiving. 91 days remain until November. 30 days to go until The Bers. Wow look at those counts. We are now 16 days away folks from the 100 day marker to Thanksgiving. And then? We're into double digits territory in all 3 of our counts. Pretty incredible. The 300s are a distant memory right now. The 200s are a long time ago. And soon the 100s will also be just a thing of the past. A thing of the present though is it's Sunday and the weekend. We need to enjoy it. Summer weekends are great. Heck all weekends are great. Have a great August Sunday!​

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 115 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 90 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 29 DAYS


Happy August Week! We start off this full new August week with 3 counts as usual. They are the following brought to you by all turkey lovers around the world: 115 days till Thanksgiving, 90 days till November and 29 days till The Bers. And those 3 counts look mighty fine to start off this week. Our next milestone will be the huge 100 day marker to Thanksgiving Day. Amazing as it will be the LAST day of any count being TRIPLE DIGITS in this thread...EVER AGAIN. Is that serious enough for you? Well it will happen 2 weeks from tomorrow. I look forward to it but right now I'm just hoping everyone's week starts off ok today. That's always important on a Monday after a weekend that was fun. Have a great August Week!​

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 114 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 89 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 28 DAYS


Happy Hot August! Today it's more about the storm than the heat though. That's ok though we'll get through it. And we'll get through these 3 counts (114 days till Thanksgiving, 89 days till November, and 28 days till The Bers). Our next milestone happens 2 weeks from today when we reach the 100 day marker to Thanksgiving. That will be our final triple digits count of the entire year in this thread. Can I get an Amen? Oh well that's going to be exciting for all of us turkey lovers. That will be a monumental number for sure. Just strolling along through the summer time. That's what August is about. No holidays or anything this month. But here? It's a holiday every day. Have a great Hot August!​

Amen! The month is already flying by. I want to savor it, but at the same time...come on 100 days until Thanksgiving!

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 113 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 88 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 27 DAYS


Happy August Mid-Week! A late post today due to my power outage. Still hoping it comes back soon. We have 113 days till Thanksgiving. We have 88 days left until November. We have 27 days to go until The Bers. Just like that all 3 counts keep moving along with or without power. And of course in 13 days we'll reach that huge milestone known as the 100 Day Marker to Thanksgiving. The last 100 marker we will ever have in this thread. How incredible is that? I figured that would be the best way to do things. Other than that? Just a warm and humid day out. Sleeping without a/c? I'll be sleeping in the basement if that happens turkey fans. I need some cooler weather. Have a great August Mid-Week!​

Happy Powerless August! Still no power for us but I'm dedicated to not missing a day of the Thanksgiving Countdown this year so here you go: 112 days left till Thanksgiving, 87 days to go until November and 26 days remain until The Bers. Speaking of dedication how about the dedication of all of you for being here? I'll never be able to convey how much I appreciate it as when I started this thread (last year's) I wasn't sure anyone would even post and it's built up now to where a bunch of people do regularly. I'm glad there's so much love for Thanksgiving. Hang in there everyone. 12 days left until we reach the 100 Day Marker to Thanksgiving. Tomorrow CW will post a special Thanksgiving Video for us. Have a great Powerless August!​
