    Actually, When the crews winter over in the South Pole they have quite a bit to tide them over. Satalite TV, Satalite phones to call back home when ever they want to. The food is actually quite good and plentiful and they do hjave plenty of free time to persue activities that interest them and any hobbies they may like. They also get plenty of physical activity if they want. there is skiing (cross country of course) and ice trekking and other winter type sports. I know this from my brother who has wintered over at the south pole and Mcmurdo for 12 of the last 13 years. He loves going there to work. as for the "esteemed" Dr jerri Nielsen...I have heard a few stories about her from several people that have worked with her and stayed there with her that might just change most opinions about her and her "bravery"

    The fortune cookie fortune I have taped above my computer screen is: "Love, time, and patience are your three great physicians." HHhhhhmmmmmmmmm, if I add "in bed" to that it could be VERY interesting-- with or without Viagra?

    Some of my other favorite sayings are:
    1. "Fast food isn't fast enough" from a "Women who do too much" calendar;
    2. "God made time and He made plenty of it" an old Irish proverb; and
    3. "Our lives are frittered away by detail; simplify, simplify." Thoreau
