The numbers on the right of the window are the outside temps, so open the window to that setting and the house stays 72* :) it is 40 degrees and sunny up here so I just opened a few windows and viola!

I think the bread is starting to ferment toothy

I am very suspicious this is a picture from Maine.... :nono:

I see a bare spot of ground out that window that isn't snow covered and doesn't have a lawn chair on it!!!

That can't be true for Maine in early March!!!

We need a CSI Maine investigation just to make sure MA hasn't been kidnapped and taken to South Jersey. :!:

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a 'piece of human solid waste' by the clean end." More true today....
