    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    While I went out for a smoke this morning in a bathrobe/slippers, and it wasn't that bad, it's much worse tonight. This is really sucking now.

    My mom also got me a throw from the Faribault Mill for Christmas. Itís exceptional. Itís made from recycled wool and blended with recycled acrylic. I had never heard of them before but this blanket is incredibly warm. Itís also quite soft. Huge fan of recycling material as well. They arenít cheap but I like it so much.

    Iíd use it in my car as an emergency blanket and something to take to football games but Iím not sure itís going to leave my living room.

    -15 or so in Minnetonka (western suburb of MPLS). Thankfully, I have underground heated parking. It is rather amusing watching the temp drop on the dashboard reading, from 70 to [insert cold-arse temp] by the time I get to the end of the block.

    My co-worker has one. I thought I heard that the newer cars don't need them, but don't quote me on it.

    How many younger folks even KNOW what block heaters are?

    You parked too far away from the rink. On Friday, I parked at the ramp across University Ave from Old Mariucci, and that was cold enough. The fiancee wasn't very happy with that walk.

    Newer cars with the fuel injection do a much better job starting in the cold than the older carbureted versions, but having a block heater installed doesn't hurt anything. And with these smaller engine blocks, the block heater can be effectively the bulb from the old "Easy Bake" ovens.

    How many younger folks even KNOW what a carburetor is, ... or an Easy Bake oven.
