Thanks for the link!  Awesome long problem.  Never saw the trick of putting your fingers on the back of your neck to warm them up like that, I'll have to try it out this winter.

yep.. it is a good trick.   

Strong work by Tomoko.     I  thought Alex Johnson would have had a v14 by now.. too many comps not enough stone perhaps
