I do not think of myself as a competitive person but apparently I like to show off and impress my physical therapist. Unfortunately, I overdid it at rehab today with the result that even hobbling is too fast! "Can you do 5 leg lifts?", she asked. "I'll try," says I. And then I did 10. Then there were the 20 minutes of walking on the zero gravity treadmill... Where is my pain medication??

Our snow has arrived. I happened to glance out of the window just now and saw brown lumps where none should be. On closer inspection, it resolved into a group of 4-6 deer hunkered down. Here is a photo of 3 (or 4??) of them.

Regarding Hampton Court's chocolate kitchen: I posted a number of photos on my Flickr account (Hampton Court 2014, https://www.flickr.com/photos/8311418@N08/sets/). Here are a few from that album.

Cleveland set a record for the coldest February ever recorded. The average temperature was 14.2 F (-9.8 C). We haven't seen grass since January due to all the snow on the ground. The geese and birds are having a difficult time finding food. It might be warm enough tomorrow to rain instead of snow! Hooray!

Insomnia - or sleeplessness. A side effect of a steroid injection into my left hip. Walking does not hurt now. I sit here and think that if I were in England, I'd be waking up and ready for another new day. As it is, it's dark here and only 1:30 a.m. Nothing to do, eyes won't stay closed, brain is frustrated with still being awake. So, good morning to my UK friends! What's it like in York and London? Snow here, frigid temps. It was -27C on Friday (-17F). It warmed up to 20F today (-6 or so). We haven't seen grass since early January!

Glad that the steroid helped your hip! Wish I was in England now myself. :)

I don't know how to add this below the Feb 1 photo of the deer, but perhaps you can see that photo elsewhere. As a gauge of the snow we are receiving, this photo was taken a few minutes ago (Feb 4) of two deer in the same spot. Can you spot the ears of the second deer? More snow expected this evening and into tomorrow.

My question to the gurus at grammarphobia.com was answered today, February 2. I asked how we came to pronounce "colonel" as "kernel". You can see their response at http://www.grammarphobia.com/blog
Q: How did a “colonel” in the military come to be pronounced like a “kernel” on an ear of corn? A: The word for the military officer once had competing spellings as well as competing pronunciations. When the dust settled, it ended up being spelled in one way and pronounced in the other.

Furnace gave out in the middle of the night. Repair is slated for this morning. While it's 10 F. outside, it's managed to stay 65 inside so it's not too bad yet.

Sort of tempting, but February is booked more-or-less solid for me.  Now, if it was Jens ...
