    Mid-January is a very nice time, as you know. Great time for celebrating everything! And, of course, you'll find a lot of Silver on the island for 25th anniversary remembrances.

    Being from Pittsburgh, I seem to think the winters are not as bad now compared to growing up there in the 60's
    we also try to get to St.Barth's at least once a year. our escape! Thanks for the reviews

    One big difference from the sixties is that back then, at least with lower middle class parents, we would go out into the winter with basically cotton clothing. Being a landscaper for the majority of my life, I know what a difference the hi-tech apparel makes in facing cold weather winters. Two mornings ago I walked our dog for two hours in temperatures in the teens and never felt cold.

    Probably should start a new thread under Everything Else. When times were different?
