Gratitude Open Thread

Yeah, I know, I complain too much from time to time about how hard I work at an age when I should (according to the expectations of my generation) be gearing down to retirement, and sure, I feel foolish for conducting a late-career transfer into a rapidly shrinking (and some would say dying) industry. But you know what? The last time I can remember being bored at work was in 1985, and I am very grateful to be able to do work I love and that is at least marginally useful to society.

So on this Ultra-Lite Major Holiday Blogging morning, let’s do an open thread to allow for expressions of gratitude for whatever you want, dear readers, for whom I am very grateful as well.
