I have a Christmas Wreath still on my front door and a string of Christmas lights around a doorway leading to the den with Mistletoe hanging there. Hey, Mistletoe would be appropriate for Valentines Day, wouldn't it????

First of all, you are not ignorant!

I believe they are talking about making ice cream with actual snow. Even here in Dallas I have made it! Everyone makes it a little different. I have seen it made with sweetened condensed milk, which I would like to try sometime. The way I made it was just with a little vanilla and sugar.

Thanks everyone!!! Things are looking better today. They usually have 2 hours of manadatory overtime everyday and then voluntary overtime on the weekends. Well they canceled all of that yesterday when they started talking about shutting down the line. Then they just reinstated it about an hour ago. So it sounds like it may not be to hard of a fix.

I expect to go to my brother's shop and spray paint the car frame this evening. The new sub-frame body bushings should be in today, so it's almost time to put the front end back on the car!

I hope y'all have a great day!
I'm glad your check-up at the cardiologist went great!

That was one of the first things I asked for when we had our home built, a full size brick fireplace. And I wanted it big, so I got it where I can put a 3' log in there. I just love it, especially this time of year. I just love to sit in front of a roaring fire with the snow coming down on the outside... Now, If we could only get some snow....

This is really odd, this is the second year in a row where we have/ are not getting any snow at all, or very little of it. All were seeing is a dusting, an inch and then it melts away or a nasty cold to the bone rain.... The temperature has been too warm.

I was watching some video I took back on December 19th, 2009 and both Feburary 16th and the 20th of 2010, when we got hammered with snow, I mean like 4 feet deep with blizzard conditions, now that's what I'm talking about....Now that theres fun, (yes I know I'm snow sick - hah hah, get it snow sick...lol) I crack myself up....

It is similar to vanilla ice cream. You use snow, milk, sugar, and vanilla flavoring. Almost everyone in the NC mountains eats it when fresh snow is available.

Wow! I haven't been in MMC for a while now. ^^ Well, since I'm back at uni now and I start using my laptop more frequently, it will be much more chances for me to come here. I hope you all guys have started having a great year of 2013. :] Although it seems that Christmas of 2012 have passed just short time ago, I smiled when I saw this thread which already has thousands of replies! Whoah, what a wonderful Christmas fans here! ^^ Best wishes to all from (surprisingly) not-rainy Scotland!

Have a blessed day everyone. Hope we are eating snowcream for supper.
From the pictures I've seen, it'll be a long time before we can get to TN via 441.
