With 13 grandkids living within 3 miles of my home there is no shortage of extra curricular activities in which to participate. You are correct in saying there are different strokes. If I had little else to do, cutting wood is a good wholesome past time and one I enjoyed when I did it. I'm burning wood again but in a different form. I have a pellet boiler running my house that takes a grand total of about 3-5 minutes per week of my time.
