Been Too Busy to "Spark" as Much

Snow, Snow, Go Away
Okay, I read the SP article today on how to have fun in the snow and get some added exercise. I personally do not like snow, nor do I like to be out in the cold, so I have to nix those suggestions.
They say we are to get a significant snow... Read more
