Hi JR! How'd the first month of your New Year go for you?  Heading to 16 months now, before we know it we'll be at 2 years WOW! For now will just enjoy today and finally being free from cigarettes.  Just wanted to pop in and say hello, hope you and the other Octonopers are doing well.

Hi JR how are you doing? Unusally warm here in chicago also in a few weeks spring is around the corner. No more of those extreme polar vortexes we used to get, i dont know if that is a good thing

Hi Blue, 

I haven’t logged in here for a while and am behind on answering messages.It is amazing that we really are heading to our two year quit. Seems like I almost never think about smoking anymore. That is one thing to be thankful for because those first few months were really hard. Hope your winter is going good and maybe spring won’t be too far off for us.

It’s good to hear from you. Where I live it has been a very mild winter so far. We usually get a few snows each winter but so far we haven’t had any this year. I noticed this week that the tulips I planted in 2018 are coming back up this year.  Seems like they are starting early so maybe it is going to be an early spring. 

I have been keeping an eye on the Coronavirus thing and hoping it doesn’t get out in the US like it has in China.

How is your quit going? I haven’t read any of the posts for February yet. Think I’ll do that next. Anyway, hang in there..we’re heading a bit closer to spring every day.

HI Jr, we finally got a nice slow snow fall, makes everything white and pure.

I have a feeling we are going to have a real hot summer..
