Wilderness Walk for 11-24-2011: Turkey Day Edition

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. As you sit around the table with your family today, thinking about everything you are thankful for, consider for a minute how many things could take that away from you all too suddenly. Now consider how many of those things are 100% preventable with a simple check up and check in with your doctor. High cholesterol, high blood pressure (going to see in-laws today?), diabetes... cancer. All can be beaten with help from a doctor. 

The lecture ends now. Well... until tomorrow. Enjoy your day today, and tell everyone you see that Hockey Wilderness says Happy Thanksgiving.
