I've gone on and on about how I love my TiVo, but there's one feature I haven't had a chance to take out for spin until this morning. If you're in the middle of recording something, you can start watching it from the beginning and it will keep logging the show while you do.

Today I'm seeing just how cool that can be. I always love the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, but in recent years it's been tough to drag myself out of bed just to watch TV, even it if is a once-a-year event. So either I'd get up in time and be sleepy, thereby missing much of the enjoyment, or I'd get up half-way through and miss a lot of the actual goings-on.

But not today. I woke up about 10:30, made coffee, plopped myself down in front of the tube and started watching from beginning. I'm skipping through the commercials and lame host segments and just watching the actual parade itself.

It's nearly as good as the year, not too long ago, when I was actually there in Columbus Circle with my brother Geoff. Certainly warmer and drier.

So I start this Thanksgiving enjoying a satisfying but admittedly trivial blessing. I'm just warming up. Soon I'll turn my thoughts to family, friends, and loved ones, the true joys of my life.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody.
