Thanksgiving is almost upon us. Besides the good times with family, great meal and wonderful things we all have to be thankful of, anticipation for getting a great deal is just around the corner.
With new technology always rapidly changing and new products being released on the market at a never-ending pace, prices are always fluctuating and it can become very quickly confusing knowing what to buy, what makes a good gift and where we should look for the best deals on electronics.
It's time to give thanks. Many of us will break bread on Thursday at dinner tables across America to reflect on the things that unfortunately we only reflect upon once a year. But thankfully, the federal government from its earliest form of the Continental Congress to the Civil War to FDR weighed in at some point of history and made it a federal holiday. Well played.

This formidable desert mountain range is about 18 miles long and includes some remote but storied locations, including Last Chance Canyon, Walter Bickel's Camp, Burro Schmidt's Tunnel, the Old Dutch Cleanser Mine and others.
