Fat (video) Tuesday – Frensham

Tomorrow is the first day of Winter on the earth’s northern hemisphere, so that make’s this Yule’s Eve; or as your favorite cable TV meteorologist might refer to as the winter solstice. I like to say it’s the shortest day of the year (even though each day is 24 hours long, more or less). The […]
