    Another Reason To Move!

    Living in northern climates is dangerous for me. I don't like the cold and once you slip on the ice a few times you don't miss it when it's gone! I am done with snow, forever!

    Ouch!!

    Our lane is covered in thick snow and ice and has been for the last 48hrs.  I have just taken my darling dog for a walk and went flying ... I landed on my back, knocking my head and elbows and felt very shaken. It is just superficial but I think there will be quite a...

    Ouch!

    I Don't Know What Was Worse

    When I was a young recruit wakling all over the base in Great Lakes...the ice was so bad I fell several times daily. The boots they issued us would get caked with snow and then the smooth ice and packed powder would make it impossible to keep our feet under us. I remember...
