I bought new Cuddle Duds this year! I love those things. So soft and warm. I 'discovered' them when I lived in Alaska and figured if they were good there they'd be good here. They are! I wear them to work too because I freeze half the time. It just doesn't get cold enough here to go all out on winter wear. Still seeing a lot of shorts, tees and flip flops.

Put another log on the fire.

It's 13 degrees outside and we have high winds making it feel much colder than that.

I suppose the smart thing to do is go to bed, get under the covers and snuggle up with the 2 dogs on this 3 dog night but I'm wide awake and not feeling the least bit sleepy.

If it gets any colder at night here in Los Angeles, I may have to take the drastic step of moving the thermostat switch from "off" to "heat". That does happen several times each winter.

Oh, ER, be quiet. Tomorrow's high temp. might be minus 4 around here so we don't want to hear about your basking in warmth. Or maybe you are inviting all of us out for a little visit?

Speaking of BROWN BREAD in a CAN, I will sell it to anyone here for $35/can. Joking. The grocery stores are loaded with it and I have some in the cupboard right now. Yum. Sat'day night supper=sliced brown bread that comes in a can (and is delicious) and Boston baked beans and hotdogs. That's it. Great tradition, eh?
Fills ya up and keeps ya warm on a freezing night like this one.

Default How many of you have met other C-D posters in person?

Sure, y'all come on out here! But there is only a single bed in my guest room, so if you have a spouse one of you will have to sleep on the floor, or on the couch in the living room.

On a more serious note, and as a change of subject, your comment caused me to think about the fact that many City-Data posters have visited each other in person. I think that's pretty nifty, although I personally am very cautious about giving out my personal information. I have met only one other City-Data poster in person (for a most enjoyable breakfast at a restaurant), and he is the only one here who knows my real name or has my email address. Since he and I live almost 2000 miles apart, there's not much chance of weekly lunches!

I have had a few other people ask me for my email address, but I have politely declined on general principles. I am not at all upset that they asked and I especially hope they weren't offended by my refusal, which I tried to put in a nice way.

Any experiences, positive or negative, to share?

I've been on Cape Cod in the winter; it was overwhelming. The were wind, waves, and snow in the air. It wasn't a day for any but a short stroll followed by pleasant reverie watching the wintry beauty from the comfortable window of an inn. For wondrous memories I'll take that in preference to a hot summer day when the beach would no doubt be festooned with noisy and probably verminous children accompanied by parents with cheap yellow mustard and raspberry Kool Aid stained lips.

Re: B & M Brown Bread

Do you steam it and if so for how long?

The Brown bread from the store needs nothing other than opening, slicing and enjoying.

Ha ha! Only you guys will appreciate this...my BF is 74, apparently his son thinks his Dad is setting a bad example for his kids, by living "in sin" with me!

Huh. I am obviously a "Jezabel", who coerced his Father, who up to meeting me, lead a virtuous life, by being married for 45 years...(his wife died...was he supposed to be alone?) obviously.

So,we are on the "Do Not Come Over" list...okay.

Stay warm out there, a good weekend for a good book! My Grandma used to make brown bread in a can, using those tall coffee cans. And real baked beans, which taste nothing like the ones from a can!
