I am soooo ready for warm weather. We have froze this week because I have refused to start a fire. Now house is at 60 (probably colder) and its supposed to get below freezing tonight. Grrrr. Guess I will start another one.

Are u still burning??

We've had a fire everyday this year except for one night last weekend it was 65*! Hopefully I just got a couple more weeks left....

I had a couple cord in reserve this spring, but a couple customers ran low and I let it go...

Still burning but just at night. During the day it is warming up enough to heat the house.

You should talk to my wife, she thinks it more convenient to go turn the thermostat up on the furnace than go out to the wood pile. :D

I keep the stove going 24 hours a day. Pretty sure if Jer had to do my job we would have gotten propane a long time ago :)

We are going to get a little propane next year. It's hard to find a dog sitter that can keep a fire going too. It didn't work out well this past Christmas :)

I wouldn't want to piss the boss off, looks intimidating but is probably a big softy, right? My dog can actually sleep outside now in the sun. Tough life for him.

When I first saw the title of this thread- I thought she was talking about chiggers, hemorrhoids, or Psoriasis.

Psoriasis is no laughing matter. I'd trade that for something else. Tough call though, more annoying than anything.

My cousin has it- he used to joke about being "the Elephant Man..."

I have it. I've been real lucky in that it's been dormant for quite some time now. As a kid it was difficult to deal with for sure. Must be close to 10 years now since the last it surfaced for me. UV light drastically helps with it. My grandfather had it real bad. He bought a UV lamp setup thing with a timer, and it reduced the surface area affected by a lot. I'd recommend it to anyone who has this. What I don't know is the type of bulbs he had, I know there are different types of UV bulbs available. A dermatologist could probably answer that.

He's a huge wuss, hates the cold, hates getting wet, loves everyone he meets.
He hangs out at the shop most days he's great with customers, they love him.

About 5 years ago I forgot to stoke the fire before I fell asleep and apparently had too many blankets so the cold did not wake me up. Tat night was so cold that when I finally awoke the faucets in the bathroom were starting to freeze. Needless to say, the boiler down in the basement did not survive, so for the last five years or so I have heated with just wood, and have seen no good reason to replace the boiler yet. However, the nice thing is that the wife can turn up the thermostat all she wants, but a fire will be required for real warmth. She learned quick when she came to me, she's a good fire tender now:thumbsup:

She's starting it up for the night as I type this:bananawhip:
