I never sprouted. So if I'm not the proverbial "bad weed", I must be Goodweed. Also, I live in and love the North.

I'm not a bit cold and 10' F., and don't really start feeling the cold until the mercury dips to around the 0 point. But I get physically ill feeling when it rises much beyond 90. I'm uncomfortably hot at 80. When the news, or some special warning comes on TV telling about the brutal and potentially deadly temperatures of 45' F., I laugh. To me, that's perfect for doing outdoor things. I'm warm and don't have to sweat.

I am, Goodweed of the North. Though I'm not great and powerful like Oz.

I also love the north. I lived in Minnesota for several years. Through several moves and circumstances I ended up in Houston, which is like living in a sauna during the summer. Nothing is all good or all bad and I'll be planning a picnic in late October, when some of us are still wearing shorts and T-shirts.

My username - simplicity - identifies my goal in life - to live well and simply.

What a heartwarming story. Gosh, I can't remember where I put the remote control let alone stories like that from my childhood (and I'm 20 yrs your Jr, from the sounds of it). If I had known we'd start discussing usernames in this forum, I would have chosen something more symbolic... like Beefcheeks .

I am also deprived in vertical stature (5'1") and non-heat-tolerant. I always say that I can put on more layers if I'm cold but you can only take so many off when you're hot! Though I don't very much prefer it hot. I guess I'm a climate snob: 65F to 75F I prefer. but precipitation of any form doesn't bother me one bit! Maybe I was an invasive perennial plant of some sort in a former life. That could be my new name: Noxious Weed of the Burgh..
