Jammin... Have you tried Aveeno Intense Relief Hand Cream? That's the only lotion I can get my better half to use because it's not sticky or greasy feeling at all. It comes in a size that you can stick in your pocket too.

I don't blame ya, when you find something that works stick with it. I just mentioned it as an option if you can't find the Vaseline ;)

Another cream that works really well (for me anyway), is that 'udder' cream, I forget what it's called? I'll look and edit this post to add name later. My career choice for the past several years meant my hands were being constantly washed (haha, no it wasn't OCD) during the past several winters and it was the only thing that saved me. It also doesn't have an icky perfumy scent and isn't greasy.

I think what your referring to is "Udder Mint" which you can find in any Veterinary Clinic which deals with Dairy farmers.

Change of subject.....
In your travels this season have you noticed the lack of outside Christmas lights? I can't decide if people are just conserving on electricity or it's just the lack of holiday cheer

Pelicn I thought it was just me or the areas we have been in. I love looking at Christmas lights and have missed seeing them.

The average family around here lives in a "Manufactured home" as in trailer, either single or double wide. Probably making less then $35,000.00 with a double income, BUT the Christmas lights are everywhere.

If the house in that video isn't on Elmdale St, (in Brook Park, Oh), there's one just like it - in fact, there are two. They seem to have been trying to "one up" each other with the lights for years now, and it gets more extravagant every year, lol. :D

The product you are talking about is called utter balm or bag balm........you can find it at some drug stores and farm supplys such as tractor supply..this is the best hand cream that I have ever used.I use to sell it to mechanics and they loved it.
