    I'll start it.

    You have to mow a path to the woodpile to get a few more splits.

    I wanted mosquitoes but, I'll go with plugging the air conditioner in.
    (neither are a guarantee to an end of cold weather in New England)

    I only banned Russians (.ru email addresses) plus one guy that I thought was Mikes Avatar this spring!

    If I ban someone and get no complaints, I always assume a bulls eye.

    ;-P

    Me thinks some folks now have MORE accounts then they had before they were banned.

    When it's 76* in the house at 8:30 AM.

    When I can't stand to wear my fake Uggs beyond about 7:30 AM.

    When I look at the on-hand wood supply for the stoves and I don't have to do anything at all.

    When I can't do more than an hour of splitting before taking off my long sleeved shirts.

    Gorgeous day here in Central Oregon, crystal clear and 72*...maybe this winter really will end. (I'm not going to let it fake me out, though). Rick

    You come in from cutting wood and your wife has placed pots of blooming annuals on top of the stove.

    When I'm outside working in my shorts and no top. Like the 76 degree beauty we've been blessed with today. The sun feels good!
