Been quiet this week.. (Cause we're all boiling water non stop)
Actually, I've been down with a 3 day headache that has my vision blurred too much to type.. 
 And, Oh hey, big surprise.. the rodent on the hill says more winter.. "With a rebel yell, he cried.. more, more more.. " Hey, if someone pulled you out of your warm comfy hole at the crack of dawn on a cold winter day.. you'd yell right? 
 Anyway.. I'm coffee's and ibuprofened here for a few minutes.. so lets do some business before I can't see again.. since I'm running late.. 
 Welcome to February.. midwinter.. we're looking for spring.. and hunkering down .. There are things to help you through your seasonal depression .. get you out among other humans and gathering together.. So, lets take a look into the upcoming week.. 
(Hey, in the week begins on Thursday for those of us in the hospitality industry)
