yeah, we had chili tonight for dinner.  I used a great deal of tabasco
sauce.  It all helped.  I wish I had laid in some Thai hot sauce, though.
The best, with lots of garlic.  Lucinda

I'm about 150 miles from the mouth of the Mississippi but most of our
cold air comes from farther west than Minnesota. I suspect it comes from
around where you live but would have to call up a weather map to be
sure. I have a good friend just outside Minneapolis and she's
complaining about the cold too. She claims she just opens a bottle of my
hot sauce and it heats the house though.
