Doldrum buster

The official term for today's temperature here in Northeast Ohio is "cold as a brass monkey's pecker." Everything is covered in ice and snow and I'm like a weird troll, peering out at the hopeless scape. Not good.

In order to mix it up a bit, I shall be packing up the Goat and Lil' O'B and heading down to the Brite Winter Festival on Feb. 19. If you are in the vicinity, I suggest you do the same.

This is a hipster event. I am not a hipster, but I don't care. I'm going anyway. There will be cool gourmet food trucks and people who actually are hipsters eating stuff they purchase from the cool gourmet food trucks.

Um, yeah.

Yes, it's still a couple of weeks away, but with no hint of the mercury heading above freezing for the next ten days, you need something to look forward to and the Festival will have giant snow skee ball, so there you go.

I hope I see you there.

For sure were I off I-75 and up the Turnpike that I would elist someone to bring me to whatever...

I read your piece 'Now Right Woman, Mow Right Man' and thought it was wonderful. There is a cetain amout of repsect that no accomplishment or money can buy a woman who goes out on a hot, stifling, August afternoon and fires up the Toro and cuts the damn lawn.

Good to see that the attitude has been passed down to the next O'Brien generation...

I have a friend visiting from out of town that weekend, and I intend to take her along to this festival. What better way to show off Cleveland that in the freezing cold with lots of ice and snow games?

Not thought of St Lucia or at least the Keys. BTW, it's 15 degrees centigrade in Tipperary at the moment.

It's colder than a witches titty in a brass brazziere!

Y'know, I wouldn't be all that surprised to see this sort of terminology show up on Earlier this week (or was it, last week), they had this infographic on the main page that was smack dab over Tennessee... and it had two large arrows pointing east, and the words "SEVERE THREAT" going across a handful of states.

That sort of thing, I'm not all that used to.
