Happy Thanksgiving San Diego County!
At Patch, we are most thankful for you, our readers, and we'd like to invite you to let us know what you are most grateful for in your lives. So before the feast is eaten and snacked on a second time, take a moment to reflect. In the meantime, here are some more thanks from around the Patch table.
"I'm thankful for the opportunity to work with a great team of editors at Patch as we re-invent local news coverage in the United States." —Senior Regional Editor Chris Jennewein
"I'm thankful for continued good health, happiness, a great career, the ability to live by the beach, and for being able to surround myself with family, friends, and my dog on a daily basis." —Editor Deanne Goodman
"I'm thankful for a loving family and good health. And S'mores ice cream sandwiches from Trader Joes. Well, 'relatively' good health." —Editor Eric Yates
"I'm thankful for Tim Armstrong for starting Patch, which prolonged my journalism career, and Chris Jennewein (Patch senior regional editor) for contacting me about a Patch job three days after I was laid off at the Union-Tribune. (And as always, I'm thankful for my wife and son who support me in the decathlon of journalism.) —Associate Regional Editor Ken Stone
"In the recent wake of Hurricane Sandy, I'm ever-so-grateful that my family in New Jersey, though wet, tired and weary, is safe. Positive thoughts and prayers are still being sent to all of those affected by the storm. And while it's always nice to take time to stop and be thankful for family, this year, more than ever, I'm so thankful for mine. Especially the new brother I've gained. (Congrats, again, Stacy and Josh!). I've been reminded again this year that life is short, love is sweet and there's nothing a glass of wine can't fix. Happy Thanksgiving!" —Editor Melissa Phy
"I am thankful for the most amazing friends and family. This year has been full of great experiences and opportunities. I can't believe how fast this year has gone by. I'm looking forward to some home cooking today and some beach time." —Editor Michelle Mowad
"Family, community, good health and friends. I'm also thankful to live in a country where free speech is championed and people can voice their opinions." –Editor Khari Johnson
