Meryl! Great to get an update on things in Alaska. :)

With temps in the thirties, you have it warmer than I do at the moment. :o

Good to hear from you, Miz Merly!  ;D

Seriously? A rental car in Alaska that didn't come with snow tires? Seriously?  :o

Happy Monday, Brokies! What did everyone think of the Grammies last night? Or Downton Abbey, if you went there instead.

I spent the evening with Miss Barbra, watching Funny Girl, which I'd never before seen all the way through.

   That is one of my all time favorite movies Jeff.  I owned the "soundtrack back in the seventies.  I would not even venture a guess how many times I listened to that.  Or how many times I watched the film.  My hubby and I went to see it the first time in the theater.  It was for an anniversary, (can't remember which one.)  We went to the de rigeur, dinner and a movie.  I remember, my husband commenting as we left, the
storyline was very similar to ours...   Barbara was at her finest in that movie....awesome..  Maybe I will watch it again.  I do love it, and the music is not to be beaten..


    Then there is the Grammys.  I like some of it, and other parts, I almost hated.  I am overall sad that I missed Downton in favor of watching them.  I could have  picked them up later, on other places.  The parts that I wanted to see.  Leaving out the stuff, that was close to hurtful to watch...  I hated the extra, generic lighting and stage productions.  I hated Chris Browns dancing up and down the pyramid of blocks.  The whole thing was close to damaging to the eyes, and psyche.  I loved Bruno Mars, and Adele,  Jennifer Hudson's tribute to Whitney, was absolutely flawless.  Very emotional and powerful.  She is the Whitney of this time.  I was so so angry when she was bumped from Idol.  She was my favorite all the way.  It certainly hasn't hurt her in the long run however. 
    I was very ho hum about it overall.  Sorry to say.

My morning paper tells they found a man in a car totally covered with snow, up north.

You won't believe this: he's survived there since the beginning of December!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hasn't had anything but snow to eat since 19th December!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He had a good sleeping bag, which is how he survived the cold.

He was totally emaciated when they found him.

 :o indeed.

Seriously? Since Dec 19th? That's two whole months. Can a human survive that long without anything to eat?

If the car was totally covered, the snow would have worked as isolating layer, the car would be like an iglu. That helps with the cold, but how the heck did he get air then?

It's a strange story.
But whatever the details are, the poor guy went thru hell and must have lost half of his mind by now.

I agree.  The article wasn't very detailed, but it did say that the snow worked as insulation.
I guess a car isn't built tight enough to not allow air in, but I don't know.

I have a small suspicion the whole thing is a hoax, time will tell.

Yeah, that thought came to my mind, too.
Maybe your news will give follow-ups.
