  • Yes, I realize the value of the internet and the information that is available at a click of a mouse, but I still prefer the book. Maybe it’s because we have pokey-slow-country-dial-up that reaching for a book proves faster and more efficient for me. Maybe it’s just that I like the tactile experience of a book.

  • I thought we would be set on the firewood front this winter because of all the downed trees and limbs from last year’s storms. We have a huge pile of wood out by the barn that we are literally chipping away at with the splitter. 

    I love splitting wood; it is great exercise and manages to shed just about any frustration that may be lingering from the day. 

    But not all wood is created equal if you plan to use it for warmth in the fireplace.
