Thanksgiving Quick Tips!

The U.S. celebrates Thanksgiving on November 24, 2022

This Quick Tip is prompted by Thanksgiving, but the tips here apply to all food-oriented holidays, and there aren’t that many holidays that aren’t focused on food!

Here are some great tips on managing Loop so that you can eat, maintain great control and just enjoy the day.

These tips show the Loop interface, but the concepts can be translated to any closed-loop system.
