New to Forum, Hello

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

Welcome!

I'm a Bloomsburg native myself...still have family there and visit often. I always find an excuse to stop at Berrigan's when I do. :D

You'll find this one of the most helpful boards around. I sure did when I had to replace my stove a month or so ago. LOTS of helpful advice from folks with much experience and know how.

Thanks for all the support everyone.

Who hasn't heard of Bloomsburg, the ONLY town in Pennsylvania. ;)

Just for Fred I'll do my profile in crayon, OK?

(I hope Fred can tell when someone's joking.)

In my defense Fred, this is NEPAcrossroads and there is a picture of PA at the top of the page. I guess I just sorta assumed everyone was familiar with the geography. Sorry, my mistake. It's fixed now. Can I stay? Can I???
