2 stoves are better than one

PostBy: lincolnmania On: Mon Jan 19, 2009 7:37 am

i'm going to be painting a car in a few hours, so i decided to build up tempature in the shop........rather than overload the efm, i fired up the warm morning..........it was 58 degrees in here a few hours ago........gradually approaching 75 in here :D
not a big task for most, but this garage is large and drafty......19 degrees outside too

yes i'm registered with the mark VII club, me and some of my friends will be there the whole weekend......not sure about this 87 crown vic being at carlisle tho......it belongs to my friend in the air force.......his homecoming party i am throwing for him is march first....so it is crunch time with this car....... my friend being at carlisle with this brand new vic depends if he can get leave in june..........even tho my mark still needs paint too i'll show it even with peeling clear lol

stat on the efm is at 70 and it's not running 100% of the time now with the old warm morning helping out.........by the way, both stoves were free, they both just needed some cleaning up with the warm morning not needing any parts just a cleaning

Hm-m-mmm. It's amazing to me that back in '73-'74 at the time of the first whoo-doo by the towel heads, we 'mercans hunkered down, said " to *censored* with you!" and went back (in this part of the country) to heating with wood, cut street lights out, cut thermostats back at night, stove shops popped up like mushrooms after a spring rain, and we looked for ways to use less energy and become more self-sufficient.

This go around, when fuel went to $4-5 dollars a gallon, electric utilities announced astounding future rate hikes, food was going up every week at the grocery ( or more like it, Wallyworld), etc. all I heard was mewing, whinning and crying.

Nobody (around here, at least) was scratching around looking for serviceable wood or coal heaters. Someday, they'll be really missed.

Not sure what you mean. Try buying a coal appliance right now..... People are telling OPEC to kiss off. As far as burning
wood,,,,,painful and expensive. Thermostats are turned down, people are driving less, tightening the houses up. Street lights are going out more and more. As a nation, we are on it. My old iron comment was lamenting the fact that cool cars
hanging around were scrapped when metal went through the roof. There is a fair amount of whining too, usually by those
who are unwilling or unable to cope.

Sorry, Paulie, I missed your meaning in regard to "old iron". Around here, there is no move toward 'alternative' heating as there was in the first oil embargo or any solid move by people toward taking care of problems themselves or even as much as raising a stink with their Congressman. There is just the whining. My point being, that in the course of those thiry-some-odd years, people's independent spirit has given-way to dependency.... a dependency upon anything but themselves. That is distressing to me.
