Only 71 days of Winter left. I guess that's kind of good news.  It's always good to have something to look forward to.

I've never been a real Winter kind of person. I realize a lot of people enjoy Winter activities like snowmobiling, ice fishing, skiing and that kind of stuff. My main sport in the Winter is trying to keep warm and it's a challenge some days.

There seems to be a disproportionate gap between holidays this time of year. By holidays, I mean vacation days. There are quite a few all bunched up the last few months of the year and then after New Years, nothing.

Maybe we could lobby to make some of the upcoming "holidays" vacation days. It's not that I don' enjoy working at my job but to be truthful, I enjoy not working more.

So, I suggest we make the following days, vacation days. First off, President's Day just for the fun of it. Valentine's Day, love deserves holiday status, right?  And of course 4/20, you know, just because. And maybe just make up a few more.

Anyway, 71 days until the start of Spring.  Hang in there.
