I finally just got a chance too...been busy with work. Right now, I'm about to fall over. Shrek and I have a big shopping day tomorrow. I'm hoping I get my electronic starter for the car...beats sitting in it waiting for it to warm up! It's been darn cold out!

At least the streets finally dried up, no more ice on the main drags.
