Welcome back! We send you warm midwinter greetings and hope that you're staying well in this cold and flu season. If there was ever a time to discuss things that chill, a week in January is certainly it. And, while we're at it, we'll also suggest a few ways to keep the chill off, at least while you're indoors!
