Thanksgiving Feast By Online Invite

ATLANTA (AP) _ Janet Mulford hardly knows anyone in Atlanta, so
she invited 30 strangers to ring in the holiday.

The 22-year-old placed a notice in mid-October on a social
networking site promising heaping plates of food to the first 30
people to respond.

She says she decided to throw the party rather than fork out
$400 to fly back to her native Indiana for the holiday. She She
knows a bit about the guests thanks to an R-S-V-P list and online
profiles.

She says one guest is man who just moved to town from Australia,
and a few others are ex-Marines.

Around the country, other newcomer groups organized Thanksgiving
meals for their families. A group in Seattle contributed to a vegan
potluck, while Star Trek fans in San Antonio were invited to --
quote -- "warp, shuttle or beam'' -- themselves to a meal.
