Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day here in the US and so it will be pretty quiet on the interwebs. Friday won't be much better as many people have that day off too. Last year at this time I blogged about the netting around turkeys and how much underappreciated that product is. If you didn't read it last year, I would suggest you take a look.
This year, I'll keep it short and just mention that the American Chemical Council's blog has a great overview of how polyurethane is used in creating the giant balloons used in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. (As well as a few other examples of how polyurethanes make the day more enjoyable.) It's worth a look. And making those balloons would be one cool job to have.
