All this freezing, grey weather is getting me down. I keep thinking about that Stones song "Winter" from Goats Head Soup,  "I wish I was out in California, when all the lights on the Christmas trees are out."
And I've been staring at this, little bit of the Bay Area on a balmy afternoon.

Growing up in New Hampshire, sledding was serious business. One year my sister got a blue toboggan for Christmas and it was the fastest sled this side of the White Mountains. When my youngest sister was little, all three of us could ride it. It was unbeatable! Except when conditions were right, we might get overtaken by a surprise saucer attack.
