    Well, "Winter" Can Be Sort of a Misleading Term.

    Rubber Boots Over Flipflops

    The sister of a girl I work with attends college in Erie, PA where the snow is almost knee-deep all winter, as I understand it. She loves wearing her flipflops year-round, and she had a stroke of genius: she bought a pair of colorful rubber rain boots large enough to fit easily...

    But Not Today

    It's usually pretty warm where I live,  but not this week.  I think my Yankee blood has thinned a bit over the years.  I am cold.  And so are a lot of other EPeeps,  from what I read.  Here is a little something to warm you up...   ...
