    Thanks, Bill ... and likewise from me, too.

    This was the first Thanksgiving I didn't have to go to "work" ... no Thanksgiving services at my new church - we had an ecumenical service last Sunday afternoon in combination with two other churches and their combined choirs. Next year this service will be at my church.

    For my Danish friends who almost want to celebrate,
    but decided to ship their feast to Welland, Ontario, Canada.

    I see chocolate bars at 100 grams for $1, a dollar a gram, as being a good deal,
    so I'm curious at 340 grams of "cooked ham" for $3.
    Does anyone know the equivalent price in Danemark?
    The minimum hourly wage is around $12, as a reference.

    The equivalent to $1 US in Danish krone is 6.98. The $3 US) ham would cost the Dane 10.94 Danish krone. When I was in Denmark the exchange rate was about 5 to 1. The cost of living in Denmark is very high as compared to the US. But their wages are higher, so it all comes out in the wash comparatively.

    Found this on Danish wages:

    Due to a strong trade union movement, wages in Denmark are generally higher than in the United States. Negotiated minimum wage is approximately $20/hour. Income tax in Denmark, however, is high by international standards, and ranges from 45% to a high 56%.
