Holly crap it was cold here last night -21F. We received another two inches of snow last night which brings us to twelve inches. We are suppose to be just as cold tonight. I'm running late today and I am just having my first glass of pop. I am on a steep learning curve with our new house. I had done a smoke test in the house to see the air flow and where I need to make changes. So, with all of the changes I have made over the past four months I have made some good progress, especially in the past few week. Last night the entire house held a constant 80F. Not bad since the last four weeks of cold temps I was having trouble keeping the upstairs at 60F. My wife is happier since I am not bitching and complaining about moving heat upstairs. My Ferguson 35 started pretty hard this a.m.
I have to get a lot of work done in the shop today if I plan on staying on schedule. I have a nice jewelry box that needs to be finished today so Tuesday I can send it on its way to Germany. I scored a nice load of stove coal this past week (one ton) and I am currently burning it. Nice old coal, nice red ash. The owner asked me if the coal was still good to burn. My response was,"Yup!" the fifty years it has spent sitting in his cellar means nothing since it has sat in the ground for the past million years. He wanted to see it burning so I took a nice pic and sent it to him the other day. Freddy, I wish I could have stopped in earlier this morning so I could have taken part of breakfast, maybe next weekend. I hope everyone has a good safe weekend. Don't forget to give your coal stove, stoker, boiler or whatever your burning a hug just to give it some love. A little insurance so it will not break down when you really need it.

Thank Heavens your wife was on the ball. This sounds like a repeat of my first daughter, but as with yours all is well and here we are 23 years later.
Remember, you sleep when she sleeps even it you are not tired. Do it anyway, I think you'll find sleep to be a limited commodity for the next couple of months. Take care, Lisa
