Goodbye Ague! Hello Snow Mantra!
~ I’m finally warm in the warmest coat in the world
My father and my aunt both had Raynaud's disease, which made their fingers turn white in the cold. Mine don’t do that, but my body doesn’t like the cold at all—not one little bit. more
Peter and the Christmas Russian Hat
I got an unexpected gift of money at Christmas, so I went online and found a hat that I had been looking for, for quite a while.

It's a Russian Ushanka hat, and it's one of the warmest hats in the world. It's made in Canada, from Mouton Sheepskin, which is the warmest fur for wet snow climates like Portland. (It's incredibly soft.) Beaver is the warmest for dry cold, according to the company. more

The Warmest Coat in the World:
The Snow Mantra by Canada Goose
On that winter night, I went with my lovely bride, Queen Kimmy Sophia, to One Longfellow Square, in Portland, Maine, to listen to some bluegrass music played by Erica Brown and her band (no relation). After that fine event, we walked back to our car, two blocks away. By the time we reached the parking lot, I was in "Full Ague Mode." (Ague is "shivering and shaking chills.") Like FULL AGUE MODE. I couldn't even drive. more
The Man of Steel, The Cavill,
and Tears for Heroes
Yes, I sat by my Queen's side as we watched The Cavill awe all women of the world. Hugh Jackman has been dethroned as the Most Handsome Man in the World. How can I be jealous of a God? I simply tip my hat and say, "Well... there he goes." more

"The Falkenberg" ~ A Lobster Roll for Those Who Want More than Mayonnaise
~ a gourmet lobster roll recipe ~
Every lobster roll we ate was the same unattractive mixture of a hot dog bun, cold iceberg lettuce, mayonnaise and varying amounts of lobster meat. We couldn't fault the lobster meat, but the rest of the very expensive "treat" was, in the words of Hercule Poirot, "an uninviting delicacy." more
