It's about that time of year when days begin to get longer and you start thinking winter is almost over. But it's not. Or maybe it's just me. But I'll tell you, this is about the time of year when I've totally had it with the winter. Done with the cold, done with all of it. Of course, spring is still a long way off. Ugh. I long for the time when I'll be able to say, "Stay frosty," and it won't be ironic.

Ever get a call that was a wrong number? Ever have the same person call back repeatedly to ask for the same person who isn't you and isn't there and isn't anyone you know? I'm experiencing that now. I keep getting calls from some strange number and the person on the other end keeps asking for a name that's not me. I keep telling them they have the wrong number, they thank me and then the next day it happens all over again. I don't get it.

Resolutions are funny things. For some reason we seem to think that changes made at the start of the year carry more weight than at other times. They don't. There's never a bad time to try to better oneself. Cheers

I'l spare you my ranting and raving about the snow. We all know that does absolutely no good whatsoever (not that it's ever stopped anyone). In my travels today I encountered a number of motorists spinning their wheels in the slush. Some of them, I'm sure, have new or newish vehicles they're not used to driving in bad weather. That's understandable. But as far as everyone else is concerned, I just don't get it. It's pretty simple: press the accellerator gently. Actually that's a good idea in any weather. But in the snow and slush, and even in the rain, it's crucial. If you're driving a real wheel drive vehicle and you spin your wheels, you might fishtail and get into an accident. If you spin out a front wheel drive car or truck you risk loss of control. So my advice, in any weather but especially in the snow (because it's not over, according to the weather prognosticators) is to take it easy. By starting slowly you have torque which will give you better traction. I say these things because I care. Cheers.
