Somebody agrees with me that those who screwed up should show some shame.

Okay, here is an 82-year-old blogger who doesn't hold back! Read down a ways.

Wood stove

After several attempts, I finally got the wood stove going. It took about 1/2 gallon of diesel. I didn't think the woodpile was that wet, but boy, it sure was stubborn to start. Then again, I am not much of a Boy Scout.

The wood heat feels much better, even though it still amounts to hot water going through the floor. When you are on off-peak electric, they shut you off quite a bit. When they turn you on again, it can get quite warm on the floor before the news gets to the thermostat that it is quite warm. With the wood heat, it is more consistent.
