I would rather burn a few logs to dry the clothes than use that.

When the kids say they are cold, they put another jumper on.

After October half term, that's when the fire should get lit!


It never did me any harm when I were a lad... born in '61 it was '84 before we even had an inside bog and proper toilet rolls !!

Centrall heating came then also and I had more colds that hot dinners [ we couldn't afford to light the oven we was so poor] then I got married and moved out into a house with no inside bog or central heating... It were grand when I were a lad.....

Hello there ,

if more people would have a wood stove ,
just been watching BBC , there was something about 3000 people a year die because of no being able to pay the energy bill .
That's how far we've got . Next there was a part about Aberdeen and the oil boom since 1975 , seen the Queen open the first
pipeline and it was said UK could be self sufficient for energy . Things changed since then ?
Now Eu is giving billins to Greece and let their own inhabitant's die of cold and hunger , nowaday's more people die from obesitas
than from hunger , what went wrong ?

regards ,

Paul
