    Yeah, I have noticed the number of low count posters on the rise. And the return of some seasoned ones as well. Craig, it looks like you might get to go out for pizza two times a week, now.:cool:

    I wonder if there is some kind of report that will tell you (of people who actually post) the average number of years they hang around. I know there are some die-hards who come back year after year, but I wonder if there is a large number of people who come for a few months before getting their stove and then never come back, etc.

    I like numbers, just tossing it out there.

    Scotty - that is the beauty of this place. Your very first post can bring just as much info, enlightenment or entertainment as the next dudes 10,000th post. Maybe more, since some of us are turning into crusty old curmudgeons.;lol

    I used to send telegraphs to Craig. We called it Hearthgraph and advertised in the back of Mad Magazine.

    Were all gathered here in one place, but scattered all over the country at the same time. I couldnt keep my My 6 year old son out of the campfire at the river this labor day so i guess its hereditary as well.

    Well, maybe it just goes to show my crazy thoughts and ideas aren't as crazy as I though they were! Either that or we're ALL crazy.;)
