He must be delivering some good stuff!

I have forbidden our family in Florida from ever complaining about how cold it is and how they are freezing. In fact, they are NEVER freezing. I was there for Christmas in 2007. We were deep frying a turkey by the pool in shorts on Christmas day.

Here is how I get through winter

Dec 21 - The start of winter - the shortest amount of daylight all year. To help with this I think that the days are getting longer. "it's comming"

February- Typically the coldest month - Pitchers and catchers report about Feb 14.- "It's getting closer"

Late February - Early march - Spring training - " They are gonna come north soom."

March - St Pattie's day

April - Easter and it's here.

Am I a baseball fan - no, but they play baseball in good weather.

I do like sinshine and I am glad to see the days get longer.

So, in retrospect, I am psyching myself out, but, it helps.

I read a long time ago about getting an inexpensive synthetic comforter and folding it inb half and putting a zipper in it on the long side. Put it on the couch, unzip, get in, zip up - Instant snuggly.

Here is wishing you all warm days sooner rather than ater.

One difference between a cook and a chef is that the cook mows the lawn, while the bread is rising.

Charlie, it looks like some posts were removed that discussed global warming since that is not the topic of this thread (even though it is in the title).

Hey, and that was from a guy that never ever wears socks, no matter how cold it is and how deep the snow is. My therapist thinks it is because I have no feeling around my feet... but that tingling says otherwise LOL.
