Thanksgiving: Some Reasons To Be Thankful

Thanksgiving: Some Reasons To Be Thankful

In US, today is the Thanksgiving Day. We have to be thankful everyday but, today, it can be special. Here, my reasons!



First of all: I’m still alive –I suppose so-.

I survived last year to a thrombosis. I woke up and I felt bad. Leg ache… just that. I went out with Jack and I couldn’t walk like always. There was something strange I couldn’t explain. I spent a bad morning and when I called Isabel by phone I was really bad. I had two options: to buy a bottle of whiskey and wait or to call my sister –she is a doctor-. I chose the second option –sometimes there is a paradox in the logic- and when she looked at me she turned pale. To the hospital! I just wanted to watch the Barcelona – Real Madrid that night but she was repeating: Don’t worry, you will be fine! And I wasn’t worried at all –that’s what happened with idiots, we are never worried at all-. My sister told me I was very lucky. I had a lung embolism caused by a thrombosis in my leg. It could be worst: coagulated blood could go to my head and… I wouldn’t be here writing these clumsy words. Thanks to everybody who came to visit me at the hospital, thanks to the doctors and, thanks God, I am still here.

Sometimes, you wake up and you don’t know anything. You can plan everything but everything may be wrong or –maybe- better than you planned. That’s life! And if things were exactly as you plan, life would be so boring. I have planned some things for today and, of course, for now… well, the day is being something very different I had planned but… I woke up one day planning to watch the match and I ended the day in a hospital falling out with a doctor about my habits with alcohol. Anyway, I’m here.


Have a great Thanksgiving in US and, if you are not there… think this: the day can be worse than you can imagine. Smile to people. It’s free and, above all, it’s good for your health.

Have a great Thursday.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
