What you need is an exercise machine that powers an electric heater.

Two more days of this extreme cold.

I have started a bike and dvd get fit program wherein I peddle 7km on my exercise bike while watching an episode of MASH - I was surprised to find that Kinger doesn't make an appearance until episode 3.

Christmas goodies are still holding strong. :-)

Put another tree on the log burner.

Get that global warming started up there.

I imagine Diane and her daughter as the mice in Muppet Christmas Carol.

WOW! Hasn't Canada got round to installing Global Warming yet?

We like to think we're a fairly hardy bunch in Scotland (I still laugh when I remember the times when I lived in Shropshire, and every school was closed before the first snowflake hit the ground), but we have nothing on you, Diane! Put another tree on the log burner. Stay safe!

Enjoyed the music AND the film clip!
Talking about Disney, I was dancing with my granddaughter today to the music of "The Jungle Book". She seems rather taken with "I'm the King of the Swingers".

I'm typing this with a blanket over my knees and it's 40 degrees warmer here! Stay cosy, Diane!

It's super cold here - my daughter is visiting and we are in survival mode. Things should be like this for three more days - thank goodness for Christmas cheese and chocolates.

I have put off watching Disney's Jungle Cruise for a while because the reviews suggested that it was a bit naff. But I watched it a few days ago and was pleasantly surprised. In addition, there was a part of the film - a flashback narrated by The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) - that immediately resonated with me because of the music by James Newton Howard. I played the scene back again, slightly annoying everyone else who was watching the film, because it was so good.

Here is the amazing scene from the film. If you do not want to spoil the film, the music video follows. In both YouTube videos, the music becomes even more amazing from about the two-minute mark:

MUSIC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjbpGpP7TNw

And after I found the music on the internet, I discovered that it's based on a Metallica song called Nothing Else Matters.

I'll stick with my old avatar, thanks, but that's a remarkable image.
