Excellent attire. Franco you are simply oozing with a highly refined taste. You must have been peeking in my wardrobe.

Oh no, it's happened. The local building inspector is a buffoon and I would not ask his advice on the stove install. UL listing is an overpriced boondoggle that has inhibited many inventions. I laugh at them both. However, a demand from the President of of the BAC (Baseburner Accrediting Council) for an installation explanation has me sweating bullets this morning. Our resident baseburner engineer and metallurgist (dlj) who lives down the road will be brought in for consultations. Perhaps another coal party with more XXX being brewed for the event is in order. This is going to be a tough summer however brief. An exact accounting of progress on September 27th with hi res photos and in depth questioning (do you waterboard? :sick: ). I will need Ambien tonight.

Put a chair about five feet away from the stove so you can sit there and contemplate it. Surely you will find peace therein.

I use Williams vids and wisdom's to find relaxing peace... toasty warm Crawford, book next to sofa, the Victrola spinning classical sounds and the soft glow of the Tiffany :cheers:

The truth is more sinister. If you look in the background you see huge speakers. I thought I saw Poison and Anthrax heavy metal CDs. The tiffany has been replaced by laser lighting and outside his highly modified Lambo awaits. Fame and fortune changes people. However, on a more serious note, William seems to have found contentment in a simple life that is an inspiration to us all, he needs to give seminars.

... and the sun rises in the East. How did I know that.

More to this thread. Skip seems to find these stoves at flea markets and garage sales in MA, I'm very jealous. The best I can do around here at flea markets is Cabbage Patch Dolls, it's not fair.
