It's now 13 degrees F in NYC!!!

For the past several mornings, I unicycle wearing thermal long underpants and thick wool socks, but after an hour my feet are freezing!

GalaTheDog has a thick fur coat, and seems to thrive in the cold. She just follows me off-leash, occasionally taking detours into the woods when she spots a squirrel.

I just got back from the fire out in East Gipsland. I was supposed to get back tomorrow which would have been a nicely lucrative day but it rained and we weren't allowed back on the line and sent home. Happy Australia Day everyone.

I have a squealing idler pulley, and when I was poking around to find which one I noticed my timing belt is in prime shape for replacement.

Does anyone know his address?

How bout "un plus pour nous et un de moins pour eux" - seems a bit les clunky in my sasky-french, but I haven't been fluent for about 15 years.

Have you tried loosening your shoes? thinner socks could also help if your shoes are too tight.

Bike seat and handlebar conversion also seems to help with circulation in your legs (keeping your feet warm)

Also keep your head warm, if your head is cold your body diverts blood from your extremities like your fingers and toes.

I could go on and on...

Scientists have finally figured out that it's the thought process that aids the heart in getting blood to return, against gravity, from the feet.

Which is why you get cold feet when you have second thoughts.

Try the veal.

Onto something substantially more serious.

And this is not the first time I've seen this.

The term is "postalonathon" people.

I know our roots and heritage have been ripped asunder and swept ahinder by #HeWhoIsNeverNamed, but that doesn't mean we have to start behaving like savages now.

Really, we have blazers, you know?
