Here in Florida we are having some wonderful cold weather -- the kind you'd expect to
have this time of year, instead of our usual temps in the 80's in December

"burning" on your screen as long as you leave it up.
It's been my mainstay as I've been decorating the house
and I thought I'd share it with
