How are you keeping warm this winter? 

It's called Remy Martin. You gather around your fireplace, you pour hot water in your crystal brandy snifter, put your shot in, then swirl it around and the fumes by themselves are intoxicating. It's the whole experience. Very aerodynamic. It heats you from the inside. We also have a hot tub. It's 102 degrees. No cognac in the hot tub, just beer. You don't want glass in a hot tub.

I use my dogs. I have a big fluffy golden retriever and a small dog for a backup. I snuggle with them. It's one animal keeping another animal warm. Cavemen brought the dogs out of the element for heat, and we're just advanced cavemen. It's like the old pioneer days when they brought their dogs along to keep warm. It took three dogs to keep a pioneer warm at night, hence the expression "three dog night." I'm doing the same, but in Atlanta we need only two dogs.

Lun Lun, Atlanta:
I'm originally from Chengdu, China, where the climate is quite similar to Atlanta's, so I'm comfortable. My thick, woolly coat certainly helps, too. They keep serving me fresh bamboo so I'm fine. I love to eat that bamboo. I have to admit, if it gets real cold, like below 40, I'll go in the climate-controlled dayroom and wrestle and chase Yang Yang off that climbing structure. I'm in charge here, not him.
