I like the kindling concept and my wife has mentioned the 'm' word more and more lately, this is coupled with her crazy talk of camaros and mustangs. My 10 year old son is trying to take advantage and trying to work her over for a jeep. But i digress, our register is under the bed and inaccessible partly because of all the stuff she has squirreled away over the years. (Anyone need an ab-roller?) This makes it more difficult to used the kindling concept. To CN's point, I have gone downstairs to flip the damper during my late night wanderings to the piss-stop cafe but that was getting old and I was a bit tired of stubbing my toes in the dark down there.
Oh, and Dave and Matt, I will take my cruise tickets to Alaska!!
