Thanks, Ursa—I appreciate the sentiment.

Please, others, share your stories—I hope I didn't put a halt to the process, that wasn't my intention!

Define: timing.

My father is currently in ICU with failing health. He is not long for this world. Sometime last week, he had an unusually good evening, so I spent it picking his brain about the...

A friend of mine called me out on real estate being an "investment" (making money) some years back. After having done the math on a bunch of homes, his thesis was that once mortgage interest, taxes,...

Might be worth posting on Hearth.com. That's a great resource.

Yeah, not many stoves can do a solid burn all night, but supposedly the new catalytic ones can go a solid 12 hours. My Hearthstone gets ~8 with oak, about ~5 with pine. I almost always burn pine...

It may be worth looking into how people bank their wood for long burns. I'm not sure of the different Woodstock versions, but I've always seen 10+ hour burns. Though, now that I think about it, that...

No, but it's the philosophy. If everyone bought solely on price, a place like DaSilva's might not be able to compete with Irwin or HK, etc.

I believe in supporting good service and what's good for...

It's also that drive that has led to Mom and Pop shops going out of business in favor of Amazon and Walmart.

I'd give an arm to have small outdoor shops again, fewer chain restaurants, the ability...

Hill, you should be getting some extended burn times with that Woodstock, right? From what I know about their stoves, a couple loads a day is all it takes.

FLL, when I got the quote from DaSilva's, it was presented as, "this is our price—we may not be the cheapest, but we're always competitive." It appears to be a few hundred less than what dealers are...

Thanks for the well-wishes, friends. It's not looking like tomorrow will work out, either, so I called DaSilva's—I'm going to be ordering from them—and they'll have the Sea-Doo and Yamaha models I'm...

I think it's more that the post in reference was in isolation and, at very best, barely connected to the forum.

The above political discussion relates directly to the economy and, as a result,...

I'd be interested to know what size solar you'd have to go to in order to run the tub and electric baseboard vs. mini splits, etc. and the associated costs.

Remember how awesome things were with Bush's economy? So awesome to buy things at fractions of their worth at the expense of those struggling.

Don't worry, it's coming back soon enough!
