So I dug a trail from the front door across the yard to the driveway. I called the mountain of snow "Winters' Mountain" (his last name is Winters) and my path was dubbed "Beckwith Valley".

I like the name Beckwith Valley !! It has a great majestic Western ring to it !!! I can almost see John Wayne now on his horse !!! xo

It wasn't cheap and not every clinic can administer it - it is radioactive somewhat. I would do it again if I had to. I was amazed at the results !!! She went from death's door to healthy in two weeks !!

Count us in on that, please! Our power went out at 8:20, and we were sure that we'd be out for 24 hours, because the gov. said the crews wouldn't go out until the storm was over tomorrow. But it came back on about 10:20! It's flickered, though, and it's blowing like mad out there, so I'm afraid it'll go out again before it's all over. It's awfully cold to go without heat until tomorrow night ...

We're listening to old-time radio cassettes---I think we'll just stick with those until bedtime, in case the power goes out again. Wish us luck! And xmas365, I hope your power stays on.
