Hi: cpaharley2008... When it gets that cold, how do you get the "Molasses" to move? Alf

We put the molasses jar on a trivit that is sitting on our wood stove
We had -14 below wind chill yesterday morning.
Wind chill was invented to fool people in warm climates .
Remember " If it ain't below zero then it ain't cold " , at least that's what the Nuns told us in grade school only using proper english.
Boys had to go outside for recess no matter how cold the temperature but girls got to stay inside when temps were below zero. This was back in the 1950's and before women were liberated

My condolances, it's sunny and very warm here. Tee shirt and shorts weather with breakfast outside on the deck. Given the weather I went heavy on tropical fruit for breakfast.

In Vancouver it'd probably be oatmeal but here, in international waters off the West end of Cuba, oatmeal doesn't seem like the way to go.

It’s 37F here with 25 mph wind out of the NW with gusts to 39mph. The birds are walking because the don’t want to have to fly back from Illinois when the wind goes down. I had oatmeal the last few days but opted for toast and grape jelly today. Working inside these days reducing hoarded printed matter in my cave. Camping will have to wait a while now.
We never had a lot of molasses growing up but ate locally produced sorghum on oatmeal from the then largest cereal mill in the World, Quaker Oats.

Cuba? Ron, You are in the real, actual CUBA, like, the island country Cuba? So cool. How did I miss that?
Was in Cuba, New Mexico not so long ago. (North of ABQ, south of Pagosa Springs.)

Speaking of THAT Cuba Myron, we overnighted there once for free in a municipal park. It wasn't bad.

In reading this thread it makes me rethink where I want to domicile for retirement. Snow, minus temps, wind chill don't particularly interest me. Maybe Mexico on the gulf side.......

Definitely alot to consider. Climate, cost of living, taxes, quality of life, access to medical care, everything.

Yes, what you mentioned above is very true I am finding out. And in addition I need a place that is Pitbull friendly for my travel buddy Brock. By friendly I mean the laws as well as the environment.
