This week, when temperatures lowered to a point of -14.8 fahrenheit in Finland, there was a discussion on the latest teenage girl fashion trend which is to leave your ankles uncovered by a shoe, sock or long johns even in outerwear.

I saw a young woman in Columbus the other day with a heavy winter coat, hat, gloves and jeans that didn't cover her ankles, with no tall socks or boots.

Now Columbus loses The Andersons, which is closing all retail stores.

http://www.dispatch.com/content/stor...s-closing.html

I have no idea where I'll go for a good beer and wine selection, as well as a replacement for their House of Meats. Anyone have recommendations? I hear Gentile's in Grandview has a good beer/wine selection. Butcher?

If you're going to Grandview for booze, the might as well check out this butcher shop.

Thanks. I'll check it out. We've done the cow thing every second year for a few years, splitting one three ways with other families but you end up with tons of roast and ground beef and only a few good steaks. Once the strips and so forth are gone, we'd go to the Andersons in the interim. Their House of Meats was actually our first introduction to how to properly and economnically buy steak by buying the whole loin and having it custom cut to our needs.

It does look like House of Meats is actually separate from Andersons, and they're looking for a way to stay in Columbus. One commenter had a golden idea: House of Beer and Meats...

Anyone have any better suggestions for wide beer and wine selections beyond Gentile's?

I'm not sure if I should feel confident that you'll never be harmed for that reason, or worried that Donatos might now be threatened.

In Markus Nutivaara's hometown Oulu last night a man was found to have surrendered to a male pig. The police are are determining whether it was an act out of free will or a drunken mishap to be naked and in the piggery. The man had escaped from the pig caretaker, who initially found him being surrendered after alarm notification, stumbling on manure and lifting his trousers on the way to his car. Police found the either unlucky or lucky man passed out in the ditch 40 kilometres off the site.

Happening in the spring of Athens of Finland in, Jyväskylä, the home of griffin Matti Nykänen and Markus Hännikäinen's former team JYP HT No Smoking Team...

A late night fisherman, 31, was left in the river after the current got the best of his boat. The man rose from the stream feeling algid. Wisely, he broke nearby Suur-Savo Electricity company's hydro power plant's window in search of warmth. Inside the plant he found also Suur-Savon Sähkö work overalls, putting them on. Apparently inspired by this the drunken man then started going around the plant, operating the switches as he went on, managing to shortcut one of the three 1,5 megawatt generators, bypassing the automatic systems safeguarding the plant in the process. The plant has since went under-capacity for eight months, making around one million euro losses after this incident.

Thanks for this. I am looking to fire up the smoker and I bet they happen to have some good cuts of beef and pork.

I haven't posted much this season but wanted to drop in to fill my HF peeps in. CBJ wins are good medicine. I have been battling breast cancer since October. Diagnosed during Hockey Fights Cancer week, no less. Depending on treatment days, I've missed some doozies at the arena, but have seen them all on tv! Just ready to share, now that the battle is well underway. Doing well! Cancer sucks.
