If you’ve been on Facebook the last cou-ple of days, you’ve seen the posts of whatpeople are thankful for. During the month of November, you are supposed to say somethingyou are thankful for each day, not just onThanksgiving. I’m three days behind so I betterget busy and catch up.Day 1: I am thankful for my wonderful hus-band. He drives me mad, makes me laugh, makesme smile and makes it worth coming home everyday after work. We are enjoying each other’scompany and working on some small improve-ments around the house. It feels good.Days 2: I am thankful for the rest of myfamily from the top on down to the little guy,Ringo.Day 3: I am thankful for all I have. Watchingthe footage of the horrible destruction of Superstorm Sandy really makes you take stockof what you have and what you may think youneed but don’t. It’s heart-wrenching to considerthe families of those who have died and thosewho have no homes to go back to once thingsget back on track. We never truly appreciatewhat we have until we realize how much wehave compared to others.Day 4: (Yeah, I know I’m jumping aheadbut I want to make sure I get this all in.) I amthankful the fall season is upon us. Aaaaah.The crispness of the morning air. The crunchof leaves underfoot.The only problem is now comes the pre-winter cleanup. The bushes need trimmedor the Christmas lights will look funny. Theflower beds need weeded and everything cutback. Who knows, with the weird weatherwe’ve been having, we might have to mow onemore time.I can’t believe it’s less than three weeksuntil Thanksgiving already. The pies and tur-key in the freezer is a big hint. I’ve alreadydoled out everyone else’s goodies they need tobring so the food is pretty much covered. NowI just have to work in a little cleaning (OK, a lotof cleaning) between now and then.Back to fall and how much I love this timeof year. I truly enjoy the first morning whenyou can walk outside and see your breath. Thatlittle cloud of moisture hanging in the air infront of me is awesome.We had our first snowfall early this week.There’s an old wive’s tale we chat about on thesecond floor of The Herald building. The taleindicated that whatever date the first measur-able snowfall of the year falls on, that is howmany measurable snowfalls we will have thatwinter. Uh-oh. I believe is was Oct. 30. Thatmeans 30 measurable snowfalls this year.I sure am glad it’s just an old wive’s tale.Whew. No one needs 30 snowfalls but I amthankful it was only a quarter-inch. I am in noway shape or form ready to shovel the whitestuff or wear boots and all that garb yet. I’mthankful that was just a fleeting meet-and-greetwith snow. (I know. That one doesn’t count.)Try it for the month and see what all you’rethankful for. You don’t have to log on toFacebook to make a list. It’s just as good if it’ssitting on the counter or the table. It just mattersthat you’ve thought about it and perhaps shareda few with someone else.

Boseila said back home,he meets his friends to hearmusic in the city, go to thecinema and play basketball,soccer or tennis for fun. Herein the United States, he’s ableto do some of the same thingsand add some new recreation-al activities, as well.“I like to watch the foot-ball games. I don’t really likethe rain and the cold but thegames are a lot of fun,” hesaid. “I also got a chanceto play golf and that wasvery fun, I would do it again.We’ve been to the theater tosee The Bourne Legacy andDark Knight Rises. I alsoreally enjoy the televisionshow Necessary Roughness,the one with the footballplayer.”Boseila says school iswhere he notices the mostdifferences between the twocountries.“Here at St. John’s, theperiods are right after another.In Germany we have breaksin between. Also, we don’thave uniforms back home. InGermany, my favorite classis gym but here you only get30 minutes and by the timeyou’ve warmed up you don’treally have time to do any-thing,” he said. “My favor-ite subject here is biologybut only because I like theteacher.”Boseila’s host parents Annand James Benfield make himfeel comfortable and at home,which helps with homesick-ness.“I miss my friends andfamily of course, but I getto Skype with them. I’mvery busy, though, so I don’tworry about it. Plus I have anice family here now and myhost parents tease me, too,so they’re like real parents,”he said. “I’ve made a lot of friends. I go to school withDominik back in Germanyand I’ve become good friendswith the girl exchange stu-dents here. My host parentshave a grown daughter whohas a son that I hang out witha lot, too.”When he graduates,Boseila says he would enjoycoming back to America.“I would like to maybecome back to go to collegeand play soccer,” he said. “Ihave a friend at home whowould like to come with me.I think every kid in Germanywould enjoy coming here atleast once. We really like fastfood but we don’t eat a lotof it. I like the clothes bet-ter here too. It’s been veryinteresting and I think it’sbeen a good experience forme. People here are so niceand helpful. In Germany, noteveryone will say, ‘Hello,how are you?’ when you’rewalking down the street butthey do here. It’s nice.”Boseila and the otherGerman students will returnhome on December 8.
US officials counter reportson Benghazi attacks
By LOLITA C. BALDORThe Associated Press
WASHINGTON — ThePentagon provided moredetails Friday of the militaryresponse to the assault on theU.S. Consulate in Benghazi,Libya, as questions continueto swirl ahead of the presiden-tial election about the govern-ment’s response to the attack,detailing the troops that weredispatched to the region, eventhough most arrived after thefighting was over.Although two teams of special operations forces weredeployed from central Europeand the United States, theattack, which began after 9 p.m.local time and ended by about6 a.m., was over before theyarrived at Sigonella Naval AirStation in Sicily, Italy, acrossthe Mediterranean from Libya.Pentagon press secretaryGeorge Little said that after theattack began, Defense SecretaryLeon Panetta quickly met withhis senior military advisers,including the top U.S. com-mander for Africa Commandwho was in Washington formeetings. Little said that withina few hours Panetta had orderedunits to move to Libya.“The entire U.S. govern-ment was operating from acold start,” Little said.He said the military unitswere prepared to respond toany number of contingencies,including a potential hostagesituation.The military also imme-diately moved an unarmedPredator surveillance drone toBenghazi airspace to providereal-time intelligence on thesituation for the CIA officerson the ground who were fight-ing the militants.The Pentagon commentscame a day after senior U.S.intelligence officials detailedthe CIA’s rescue efforts, strik-ing back at allegations theyfailed to respond quickly orefficiently against the dead-ly attack, which killed U.S.Ambassador Chris Stevens andthree other Americans.Two of those Americanswere ex-Navy SEALs TyroneWoods and Glenn Doherty,who initially were identifiedpublicly as State Departmentcontractors. But on Thursday,the intelligence officials saidthey were CIA contractors.Previously the agency hadasked The Associated Pressand other news organizationsto avoid linking the men tothe CIA because the officialsclaimed that doing so wouldendanger the lives of othersecurity contractors workingfor other agencies around theworld.U.S. officials are using thedetails to rebut some newsreports that said the CIA toldits personnel to “stand down”rather than go to the consulateto help repel the attackers. FoxNews reported that when CIAofficers at the annex calledhigher-ups to tell them the con-sulate was under fire, they weretwice told to “stand down.”The CIA publicly denied thereport, laying out a timelinethat showed CIA security offi-cers left their annex and headedto the consulate less than 25minutes after receiving the firstcall for help.
