  1. NYT: Contending With the Pandemic, Wealthy Nations Wage Global Battle for Migrants [Click] “Covid kept many people in place. Now several developed countries, facing aging labor forces and worker shortages, are racing to recruit, train and integrate foreigners.”

    One question perhaps runs like a cold-water current just beneath the new warm welcome: What if there are not enough qualified workers who want to move?

    “We’re hearing the same thing from everywhere,” said Mr. Dumont, the O.E.C.D researcher. “If you want to attract new workers, you need to offer them attractive conditions.”

    Imagine that!

  2. Foggy this morning, but it's burning off fast; the weather will be beautiful today. After my morning ablutions I shall prepare the festive bird and pop it into the oven.

    1. The turkey is in the oven, the kitchen is well cleaned up, quality control on the pumpkin pie is in progress, and the weather is beautiful.

  4. Short form: go to Walmart, get a turkey about the size of your head, stuff it with bones and skin, cook at one degree for ten minutes. Desert is ice cream on chicken thighs.

    1. Pretty good collection. I still feel like a great big fat tick. Postprandial pie is out of the question. . .

    2. Made it safely home! We went "there and back again" today, as there's "weather" moving in. It was already raining in Vermont as we drove home, and snowing in our town. (We have to keep up our reputation. LOL!) ☃️

    3. Today 14 of 18 family members gathered. Two DILs had to work, and one lives about 4 hours from the gathering, so Eldest and VT*Grand stayed home to cook for her.
