To Help You Deflate Photo



My son and his friend are enjoying the Ice Festival in Harbin, China a few days ago. Every winter Harbin becomes a frozen palatial city filled with life size buildings made from ice cubes and huge life like sculptures carved out of snow. I've run a few photos of the Ice Festival in Harbin on my website over the years. I'm so glad that my son has a job, even though it is in China. He wishes a Happy Spring Festival to everyone!, (大家春节快乐!)I bet the ranch that my Florida born and bred son was freezing his ass off in that photo.
