    Ice Cream

    Hi folks, I have been spending spare moments the past few days, as few as there seem to be, reading some of the posts on these forums. Some are comforting, some are helpful, some are terrifying and fill me with dread for what is to come. Whatever emotions the posts inspire though, it seems...
