Like coalnewbie, I've been to class but I've graduated from Coal College.

    I'm now attending classes for my MBA (master burners accreditation) from Coalgate U.
      :) :lol: :D

4-5 times a day is nothing!
Keep counting - it's worse when you have a smart phone on your side half the day!

My addiction to coal is a known fact around these parts. If I'm not burning coal, I'm thinking about how I can burn coal better. On top of providing me a way to keep my family warmer for less, I've met a lot of truly unique individuals through the forum. I can't think of a time when I've logged on that I haven't learned something new. Right now, it's 35* out but my living space is 75* and I'm in shorts and a t-shirt. What could be better then that? Take care, Lisa

I check this site all the time, I am worried that work will start blocking this site. Oh well, if i get fired I already have my heat paid for the winter so at least I will be warm sitting at home twiddling my thumbs.

I like to burn "rocks" and this forum is my "virtual crack pipe"

And who ever knew that the Mayor (Richard S) of this fine vast community was the drug dealer, seems like such a straight and honest guy!!!
