Instead of headphones we've been using earplugs over the Christmas period.

Approach your problem from the right end and begin with the answers. Then one day, perhaps you will find the final question..

Excellent!  and LOL.  sure, I guess you could also look into a house boat?

Please say hello to Junior et al for me and a toast to Morvigor.

I have a very nice bottle here for Tuesday evening.

Some of the ranges around New England include the Berkshires and the White Mountains.

I found a nice resource published by the Appalachian Mountain Club on the Whites recently:

New Hampshire - the 4,000s - AMC

Right now, I'm focused on long flat work, breaking in new boots, and getting in stride. I will work up to some of those peaks this spring.

The UK is also a favorite and I have not been here yet: Snowdonia National Park in Wales, but drove through Wales some years ago and loved it.

So, will just put one foot in front of the other {repeat ad infinitum!} and see how it goes.

Enjoy your weekend!

Junior was there when he was 12 years of age. He jumped on a plane and just took off.

Enjoy the snow.

LOL. You are keeping the volume up to 11, I see.

Well, today I need to save my chi for the wild storm heading this way. :D

But two songs come to mind.

Do you know the tea-related lyrics without listening?
and
Listening to LIB now - perfect before mushing the huskies to the store for provisions!
