    I hear the floods in the mid-west have taken out large amounts of corn...will be a high priced fuel going forward this year. Maybe num-num government will stop encouraging/subsidizing production of ethanol from corn. We can always hope.

    sorry for the quote...i clicked the wrong button.

    anyhoo, if people think pellet stoves fans are loud, just throw in popcorn and it will drown those fans right out.

    I can't shake the mental picture of a popcorn snowstorm raining down from a wood stove chimney.

    Sort of like the end of "Real Genius" that movie from the mid-80's where Val Kilmer plays a science student at a university who invent a powerful laser for the military.
