    Also, is "Guardian" by Alanis Morisette really from 2012??? As stupid as it may sound, I'm shocked. I've known that song for a long time and all this time I thought it was one of her 90s songs. What rock have I been living under?
    Adding to my defense, I never saw the music video either. Maybe because the song is too good for 2012, which I can also add to my defense.

    Here's a question.....and I know that there are as many definitions as there probably are people, and I am interested in hearing a variety of them.....what does "high strung" mean?
    "...each affects the other, and the other affects the next, and the world is full of stories, but the stories are all one." - Mitch Albom, one helluva writer

    When you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, you know which one you hit by the one that yelps!

    I guess my definition of a "high strung" person would be one who is definitely wound a little too tightly. It would take very little to set that type of person off and I always feel like I have to walk on eggshells around him/her.

    Fanny Mare, where do you live...the North Pole? I can't even begin to wrap my head around -30 weather! I'm guessing that is Celsius and now I have to do the conversion...let's see F = 9/5 C + 32, which would be around -22 degrees!!!! YIKES!!! How do you stay warm outside? Do you even go outside? What do you wear in that kind of weather? Is it dry?

    Living on Long Island we rarely get temps lower than the teens (Fahrenheit) but sometimes it feels colder b/c of the proximity to water. I remember years ago when I attended college upstate (far from the ocean) I would routinely walk around in 0 degree or low single digit weather with my parka open. It just never seemed quite as cold as it did downstate, which I attributed to it being drier.

    LOL damn near~!! We are in the north of Canada, so yes, now and then we got these very very cold temps/ Skin freezes in 5 minutes etc, especially when you are not dressed for it. That's why I take coats etc to all the homeless shelters. I started something in the condo where we live, and boy do I have coats and hats and mitts I guess we are used to it, I hate it, but I am used to it. The dogs have to have coats on, and boots or socks on, and we dash in and out. We go from underground parking, to underground parking. But heck we still go out to the moves etc. Hardy lot( or perhaps just mad)

    I worry for animals - but everyone seems to keep an eye out. I found a little guy running around the other day. He had escaped from his yard, I picked him up and took him home, he was freezing= he had his name tag on, so I was able to phone them
    Where hubby was , it was -40, you do the math!

    Similar stuff in Wisconsin. I lived there from birth through age 28 -- never really got used to it. That's one of the big reasons I moved to SoCal nearly 27 years ago. I've never regretted a moment of it. I went back to Wisconsin on ONE -- only one -- Christmas/New Year holiday. It was below zero the whole time. Nope, not for me...

    I hear you Ellen

    I left the UK, it never stopped raining, I found that more depressing, than I do the cold .When it isn't this cold, the sun is always out, and I need the sun.
    I would enjoy SoCal. But its nice to leave this and go somewhere warm( hot) in January and other times of the year. We have very hot summers, so all in all.-I take the good with the bad. Our company is here, it would be hard to move now, perhaps when we retire

    So it's the 21st and we're still here. If end of the world predictions were true to begin with, we would have been gone hundreds of years ago.
