When it is this cold outside I have no desire to leave the house. If I didn’t have to go to work I wouldn’t. As you know I order some of my groceries online so I minimize my trips to the grocery store. I prefer to stay at home in my pajamas with my books piled up around me.

I do ok in this arena, but I know that many Americans are struggling right now. Here are some options.
So lets do this. Lets read a few pages every day, hunker down and get through the winter.
You with me?
