    The heat is on. Unfortunately, I can't stand the heat. It's already 100 degrees in the sun on my sister's pool deck(9:30 am). I will probably spend a good part of the day either in the car, in an air conditioned Mall or in the pool. The other day I had a negative reaction to a new...

    What do you have inside your ski boots? I have just a thin sock and my foot. I am careful to make sure that there are no cuffs from my long johns or ski pants inside and that there is nothing else that will compromise the fit (no heaters, no charcoal heating warmers, no "extra" inner soles...

    How many females, as compared to males are there on this board? Another member asked a similar question in another post. Data from an older demographics survey were given, but I think that has changed, I think there are less. Here is a new poll.
