2019 March 23, Grooming Report;   I actually hope you both read today’s report.  There is real information provided (if not entertainment).

I am not sure people are stupider now but the case has been made.  For example,

2019 March 21, Grooming Report;   The things you find when looking for something else!  So, I was looking for one of those Union 76 antenna balls and came across all sorts of things from the day but alas, no antenna balls.  For either of you under the age of 60, antenna balls were orange Styrofoam balls you would put on top of your radio antenna.  Of course I haven’t had a car with an old style antenna in decades but I’m sure I have a ball somewhere in some random tool and supply (ie; junk) drawer.  Of course, I

2019 March 17, Grooming Report;   Today’s report is brought to you by the organizers(?) of the 510 Club.  I hasten to add, this is more of an organic movement than anything one could call organized.  In any case, Vickie looks to be having the rest of us skiing as “also rans”.  Of course, the great thing about the movement is the positive pressure to keep grooming to 510.  Judging by the forecast our seaso has a good way to go.  Don’t let those 40f temp forecasts scare you off; each night will freeze through the 6 day forecast so
