Winter in Siberia was where I found out why the Russians chill their vodka... When its -40 thru the day and -60 at night, thats simply room temperature....

Ha! I'll have you know I'm not a bad skier - got to get some practice in before Spring skiing in March anyway! However, YOU on ski's would probably be hilarious :rofl:

What, you think that someone born and raised around the best skiing in the UK has never tied a binding in his life????

Ah, are you claiming that dry ski slopes produce better skiers??

I have never been on a dry slope in my life. Nasty things that break your fingers. Growing up in the foothills of the Poconos, I never needed a dry slope.

Report from Sussex............

It's falling moderately now, on top of the minor avalanche last night. Trains to London are up the proverbial, so a very important personal commitment will be disrupted, and my London office will have to manage without me until (probably) Wednesday.

Deanetta is stuck in London, I'm stuck down here........... still, we are used to being apart........... ;)
