I think animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Oh and Kirsten, I don't do well with heat - or at least that's what I thought. Then I hit Vegas the first week in August, 145F when I got off the plane. I thought I'd DIE! Plus, in the evening, the humidity hit hard, as I was there during their short "rainy" time. (thunderstorms every night with scattering rain)

I honestly didn't think I could handle it. Yet by the 3rd day I was out and about with the rest, walking and hanging outside. Even went to the pool in late afternoon when it dropped to 125F, with LARGE mugs of icy cold bacardi and coke, it was perfect!

Don't know if I could deal with it on an ongoing basis and to be truthful we were both mopping wet messes in the evening from the humidity - we'd go inside a casino just to get dry from the A/C.

If all I wanted was attention, I'd be naked.

Well, instead of driving, sassi, give them the rustic experience of sled dogs.. and snow camping. :)

sassi, I don't think Vegas gets up to 145.. usually it's in the 110's.. are you sure your conversions are right?

Hubby I guess wants the cold/snow for 4 wheeling. He keeps talking about moving up to michigan and buying some snowmobiles. I refuse to move that far north. He also likes it cooler.

Move towards Denver or Colorado Springs, those cities aren't extremely cold, but are only 45 minutes away from good snow.

I would much rather move somewhere that was warm year round.

Oh yes, I'm sure Sunny - it stated that on the electronic billboard, across from the first hotel we stayed in. It averaged around 125-130F in the days but I still remember, how I got off the plane and when I hit the hotel, saw the billboard stating 145F. It was noon.

Oh yes, sled dogs. Love watching those races when I was up north. :) I'm sure someone here would accomodate without any problem. LOL!

As for snow camping, went to do it years back in northern BC. We didn't get to the site until after dark - making it hard to put together the lean-to and set everything up. So, we did rustic - we rented a cabin without TV or radio. Poor exhubby, he had troubles without his TV. But we kept occupied - we played table top hockey. LOL!! (he just bought the game for tourneys back home, so...what else can one do in a cabin?) **weg**

Yup, Sunny good idea for Kirsten's hubby. Kirsten could still have the warmer and he could go off snowmobliling. ;)

Finally got that coffee!! WARMTH!!

Since the left side of the brain controls the right side of the body (and vice versa), we now know that only left-handed people are truly in their right minds.

Hello kitchen! **curling up on a warm chair with a mug of chai, looking out the window waiting for the snow to start.**

Hmmmmmph!! Some people have been recenting.....I can tell because they are still making coffee and hot chocolate the old fashion way instead of using the new kitchen's coffee/hot chocolate taps!

Say, Sassi, do you have the big marshmellows for that fire?

Martha, enjoy the fire as you look out the window for snow. It's doing that here, snowing. Still very cold though.

Jersey, the big bag of marshmallows are in the cupboard. I don't eat them, so they are there waiting for someone who does. :)
