Yes, Namaste all!

LOL LibraGirl, I am so not looking forward to the 9 to 12 inches of snow starting tonight

And to Teddy, yeah, not sure about that do over life thing, it's been tough enough the first go round. Darrell Worley's 'Awful Beautiful Life' immediately comes to mind.

Gotta go fix lunch, happy day all!

Completely snowed in this morning, almost a foot expected. Actually, I tend to love February snow. I like Feb. because it feels like a short month and I love Valentine's Day in the middle. The snowfall in Feb tends to be prettier and cleaner around here, and picturesque...there's a feeling of quiet and serenity, and for retirees, no place to have to go. What I dread is the possibility of ice that will bring down power. Then it's getting serious. I'm just having coffee staring out at the white field behind my house as it steadily snows.

Yeppers, same here, we have about eight inches so far. Light and very fine flakes but it is coming down very steadily.

Negirl, it's 77F at Jupiter Inlet...........

Don't worry folks, that was NOT an earthquake in LA, it was just the collective groan of every Angelino over ER's pun. Actually, ER I love puns and they were one of the things I loved about Spider Robinsons series of Callahan books.

With temps in the low 50's here we're just getting rain - if only I could send some of it ER's way, they need it so.

I think we should put him on stage or Saturday Night Live - he's become quite the jokester

Actually, the statement is grammatically incorrect. The word "too" is a superlative modifier to "widespread." There are no degrees of "widespread." Something is either widespread or it isn't. Thus: Obesity is getting widespread.

Can you tell I have cabin fever? Picture of me being posted soon,,,,

I heard about the storm you east coasters were going to get - just think, spring IS coming. More plowing for you


This winter has gotten to me - I'm getting crabby and I rarely get crabby.

You remind me of Wilson from "Tool Time" - never saw his whole face. What - no jacket on the poor cold pooch?

I keep having mental images of an ocean, sand, warm breezes~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~then I look out the window.
