How do you Give Thanks during the Holiday Season? Locally in Spokane, WA there is a site (Volunteer in Spokane) that has a list of many organizations you can help out as a way to Give Thanks. 

Did you know that Thanksgiving is primarily celebrated in the U.S. and Canada? (source wikipedia)

If you enjoy the history part of the Thanksgiving Holiday check out all the info on -  I didn’t realize President Lincoln was the one who proclaimed the national holiday to be held in November. Maybe I wasn’t paying attention that day in history class. Anyways lots of fun facts on the site, so be sure to check it out.

I know you always wanted to know how to say “Happy Thanksgiving” in 10 different languages… check it out here.

All of us at North Coast Life Insurance wish you and yours a Very Happy and Safe Thanksgiving Day and Weekend!

Anonymous Hacker Group in Spokane?

hacker group anonymous mask on bloomsday runners

Today in in our Great City of Spokane, WA. It looks as though Legendary hacker group Anonymous is either making a visit or are living among us.

The steel sculpture of runners in Riverfront Park are sporting the Anonymous mask. This sculpture is directly in front of Spokane City Hall. So is this a statement for our great leaders in City Hall or is it a completely different statement altogether? I suppose if I put forth a little more effort in researching this I may come up with some more realistic answers. For now it looks as though we may have been tagged Spokane.

(Spokane’s Riverfront Park sculpture named: The Joy of Running Together, depicts runners of all kinds in celebration of the annual Bloomsday run. Spokanites are very proud to host the largest timed road running race in the world.)
