    See what I mean? In 10 years, a scientific study will recommend "More Lard!" Mark my words. OK, perhaps not. But you never know. Nutritional recommendations seem to change more often than the weather.

    Us, too, my friend. -20 C to plus 10 today. Not sure of the Fahrenheit anymore LOL - grew up on it but our current PM's father, also a PM, made the change to Celsius when I was about 11. Even went for a walk today. Nice break from the cold. But I do love snow, especially a fresh coat. More snow, please, Great Spaghetti Monster!!!

    Love this, sober! Please, please, no more acting. Your previous post said that "you had" to put on a show for these people. In reality, you don't. All you have to do is be yourself. It is much less stressful and so much more truthful! A great deal of Psychic pain, I believe, comes to us from "acting" like others expect, after which, we come home and feel guilty and even ashamed about putting on a show that was not how we really are! Be yourself and **** them if they don't help! Delete them from your life. Think of it this way. Not everyone will love you for being in pain, but some, the people you need in your life, will love you and care for you more because of it. The proof is right here. You are yourself here, and we love you all the more for it!

    Yes, we have the infrastructure to get though these conditions, my friend. And in these climates, talking about the weather with others is always fun! I was thinking about the temps you guys are getting, though. In my life it has never been near minus 40 in Southern Ontario. Perhaps the fact that we are sandwiched in the middle of three Great Lakes keeps us a little warmer (-20 C LOL). Don't know, but just a guess. Despite being cold, lakes of this size are much warmer than the air. But I digress

    Hi Riv, please try to realize that if you do your best, that is all you can do (says the guy who worries about many things out of his control ) Perhaps a little daily presence meditation before, or when you get to work, would do a little for you. During it, try surrendering to what is happening now and observe those cataclysmic thoughts as those of your mind/ego trying to upset you. They are not the true you. Observe them, don't fight them, but when they come up, recognize them from the perspective of your true self, the calm and at peace self you are underneath all this thinking! You will, hopefully, begin to train yourself to recognize these thoughts as the fictions/stories they are. Your thoughts tell you it's all about to come apart. The FACT is, they don't the future. I know, it's not easy. But daily practice, even for a minute or two, can help reduce your anxiety.

    Hi, tryingtobe (love the name BTW - aren't we all?). There is help and understanding here. I am so sorry you're feeling this way! We've all been there. For tonight, please know that you are feeling something that will wane, even if it comes up again, from time to time. I hope you stay with us! We all live in an overwhelming time. There is hope. I think most of the help is in your name - tryingtobe. Being, just being! Accepting. Presence. Many have found hope here. Hugs!!!

    There is a blessing in cold climates, for societies. If you look the world over, the communities and countries most egalitarian and close knit live in such climates (generally speaking). I'm glad I live in my country for just this reason. Although, we could lose it. It's a constant battle.

    Just where you like it, my friend!!! Cold as you can believe here, and lots of snow. 1 Hour shovelling today. I don't mind it. It's my workout.
