You might remind her that anthracite is "less polluting" than fuel oil. More benign if released back into its natural habitat, as well! :lol:

A few months back when someone posted about those free stickers "Friend of Coal" I got an extra one for her.


If you need to get some super strength epoxy, let me know. Clean the bumper well for maximum adhesion.

Ok, I admit it !

I'm addicted to being warm when it's cold everywhere but near where a coal stove is.

I'm addicted to being warm ALL THE TIME 24/7 - not just when I can get a wood stove, or fireplace going again.

I'm addicted to looking at a coal bin that is paid for, that I know will carry me through the worst winters and power outages, as opposed to looking at fuel oil tanks and wondering how soon before I'll have to remortgage the house to refill them.

And, I'm addicted to finding things with my coal stove to tinker with and run tests on, . . just so I can bask in that special warmth that reaches down into the body's core like no oil, or gas furnace/boiler ever could.

There, I admitted it ! :)

I thought about joining an Anthracite Anonymous chapter, . . . until I found out they make you go "cold" turkey. :roll:

I'm deff. going to put some up. I have a little video I made with a few of them. Can I put that up here somehow?? I'm trying to reply to a private message I just got. When I try to send it says "The requested users to be added do not exist." I'm replying directly to his private message that I just opened and read. What am I doing wrong??

After you click on reply, the originators name show up at the top but you still have to re-enter it in the send message to box. Not sure if that's the problem but I did find that issue.

After you click on post a reply button, below the text window you will see a tab that says upload attachment. When you click on that tab, you will see the allowed file extensions that are allowed. I believe the WMV extension is a video file format for windows.
