Yeah, I know but we live in a very tight suburban neighborhood and that's not going to happen while we live in this house. Although we are not saving as much on our heating bill as we could buying bulk we are still saving a substantial amount. Actually, I did look into having bulk delivered but it was also $330 a ton and then we'd still have to move it around back. That's just not going to happen due to our health issues. I also realize that we probably won't save much or any on the actually price of the coal but at least we will have a choice of higher quality brand - maybe. Thanks for your thoughts, though. Lisa
