Wimps, y'all are wimps.

Unfortunately, the trip to the Wisconsin Dells with the boys at the end of the month is the only travel I will be able to schedule for a while, Lori....
Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristrocratic forms. No gov't in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, gov't tends more and mroe to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class

Lori, what's nippy, sixty degrees? haha.

Remember, I admitted to being schooled by Shalom as well. Knowing stuff is important.

Israel is the one subject even the smartest American is crazy goofy on.

And Frank we are so grateful to have your nuanced view available to educate us.

Frank: My BFF and I went out last night, and it was about 35, 41 at the most. The part of the Bay Area furthest north of SF was 27 to 30 last night as well. We have snow on Mt. Hamilton, which is about 30 miles outside SF, and Mount Diablo should have snow too, which means it's damned cold in the East bay too.

Mark: Everything, man or machine, has a temperature best suited for its optimal performance right? Is it my fault that mine is in the 50-65 degree range? I don't think so....

BTW Frank, if "Israel is the one subject even the smartest American is crazy goofy on," then how can we trust your analysis? After all, unless Ohio seceded from the union without telling the rest of us, you're an American too aren't you?

*shrug* It's only a problem for my feet, the rest of me is well insulated! *L*

I hate wearing socks, and my Crocs don't do much to keep the feetes warm.
