    I really shouldn't be reading John Ringo's writing and having "March of Cambreadth" running through my head while at work.....

    If you're going to check out his books, I'd suggest "There Will be Dragons" for starters, or the Posleen series.

    It's Sci-Fi, heavy on the military. The Vorpal Blade series is heavy on HARD science and military.

    His books tend to be on the rough side, definitely not PG-13 rated material.

    But he's a fairly nice guy in person!

    Random thought - with my hearing impairment, it's often hard to tell whether that noise is wind outside, or an airplane going overhead

    I really should go try to start my car that I haven't run in almost 2 weeks, but it's too windy and cold to walk out to it.........


    ETA: I had to do it afterall. I didn't want any surprises when I finally need it. Started right up - no hesitation!
    Dang - it miserably bitter cold outside.........

    Oh my, time for a trip to FLorida. 43 degrees is not so bad after all.

    I recommend mittens. If you NEED to type, you can get the split mitten/gloves - though they don't work for me, because as Paul has long maintained, I have "chickadee hands" - I always thought they were plenty big, but apparently not!

    If you must do gloves, put a penny in each one. Then it gets warm from the heat of your hand, and you can then slide it into each finger for warmth!

    I am North of Freedom, so our "feels like" temperature is supposed to be well below zero tonight. The winds were gusting impressively today, though an inexperienced driver didn't know how to handle it and nearly overcompensated into my lane. When I figured it was safe enough to pass him, I glanced over and realized it was a teenage driver, maybe the first time on the highway - he looked sufficiently panicked!

    I wonder if this cold snap will break anytime soon and if we might have a balmy winter for a change.
