    That's okay... we're all entitled to make a mistake now and then. ;-P


    What, a guy can't make a point using stereotypes anymore?

    Yep, frugality used to be considered one of the cornerstones of patriotism. Now we're told it's our patriotic duty to go out and shop.

    Call me cheap, because I see no reason whatsoever for spending an extra dime, on anything...

    Unless, that is, I want to. I do not want to spend extra money on oil... I've been to Riyadh, and I don't particularly care for the Saudis... on a personal level.

    -- Mike

    PS - just called my local Bio Brick store... Good old Woodland Valley Fireplace... $390/ton. He can shove it. I have to convince someone else around here to sell these things... its either that, or I am going to be stuck with a tractor trailer full of them.

    If you were cheap, that Dolmar would have been used and your stove an Ashley. Same thing with Mike. How can you be out on a boat (hole in the water in which one pours money) and be considered cheap?

    BioBricks are intriguing because it's predictable product. I have two cords being delivered tomorrow AM and have no idea if it will be as seasoned or "seasoned". I still need another two, and might just order two pallets of BioBricks instead. Pricewise, in my area it would be about the same.

    It would be nice if they could get jotul certify these are safe.

    Quite the opposite BG. When I part with my hard earned cash, I want to do the research (and the math) to make sure that what I'm buying is of the quality that will pay me back over time. I look at it this way: if I'm going to spend a good amount of money on a saw, for example, I want to buy one that will last me. I figure I'm farther ahead spending the extra money up front than replacing an item several times or putting a lot of money into repairs.

    That goes for items like a saw, stove, splitter, appliance or other "major" purchase. On the things where quality is less of an issue, I'm cheap. Take cloths for example. The only way you'll see a designer label on me is if it was a gift or off of a clearance rack. There is a bit of a grey area with cloths also though; I do have a pair of work boots that's about 20 years old.

    Maybe I should say that I'm cheap, but I do it wisely. ;-)

    And that is known as frugality and thrift. Not cheapness, but wisely spending your hard earned money.

    Trust me, you can... especially if you own a sail boat... hell, I go through my 42 gallon diesel tank once a season... my powerboat friends clean through that in one day, before lunch.

    Count me in on CHEAPPPPPPP. I am the original cheap ?*&**#$ though I do it politely. It is a delightful feeling to beat an Arab, Politician and above all Parasitic Corporations out of their inflated extorted profits. I would much rather pay a farmer for his corn and bypass the whole crooked system.

    Yeah, I know... I know... and trust me, if I could get them for about 215/ton, even 250/ton, I'd have 4 tons in the basement right now. I've had conversations with Bio here about the topic, he's been very good about it... Basically, it completely pisses me off, because he has a perfectly good product, that nobody around here is going to use because the only dealer he has is raping its customers on price. I was going to cruise around my more local stores to see if any of them want to supply the area with BioBricks, but I only have one store in Southold (8 miles away) and another in Sag Harbor (10 miles away, by Boston Whaler) to work with, and neither of them do any major stove volume... they sell stoves, and Adirondack chairs, and umbrellas... you get the picture. There's a stove in Patchogue, I forget their name, but they seem to be a big dealer... that's 50 miles from here though.

    Right, I got my 4 tons from Perras Lumber. Any chance of you folks expanding your pressing operations in other states in the future?
