Seems to be alot of those types in the past few years ... :o
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are
neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. ...Such laws make things worse
for the assaulted and better for the assailants, they serve rather to
encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with
greater confidence than an armed man."

Crimes and Punishment."

There's no pleasing some people. I wish that stove was humming in my basement. Lisa

There's been a lot of wives here of that mind until they feel the constant radiant heat of a coal fire soak into their bones. And then when they discover that it is 1/10 the work and they don't have to wait for the hubby to come home and lug in more wood. They don't have bugs, mud, bark and crap all over the floor because there is no lugging in pile after pile of wood. They don't have to smell the stink of creosote either. After they find that none of that happens with coal then they tend to see the light.

But then again they might have swapped it out for one of these quiet, easy to use, super efficient models.

That's Hudson Valley women for you. When they get cold they go and sit in the BMW and turn on the engine and set the thermostat. Of course, the pollen filters on the car must be changed regularly too. You try talking them into coal it's not easy.

I put my stoker in the basement as fan noise does get jarring after a while. Provided the duct size is large enough and the LFM is low enough you don't hear a thing and I love HEPA filtering the air and that is the unique part that seems to be very healthy for me. You don't get that part easily any other way.

That was code for ... "wife is a militant tree-hugging obama supporter, and won't let me keep this evil appliance". :lol:

How else can a wife not enjoy being WARM?? ;)

I bet the actual statement would be, "wife doesn't like the stove". It has nothing to do with the fuel, but the appliance it's burned in.

Like I always tell my kids when they are losing an argument (and they know it)....'You're diggin a hole buddy' :P

Well, cut the suspense, were they both hand helds or a stoker. Hope you don't mean that human procreation stuff - yuk.
