    Middle class revenue generator for the Federal Government. Just recently increased my contribution by 2%.

    In my spare time, I also generate revenue for the State that I live in, and the State that I work in.

    I buy pellets with whatever I have left over.

    Get the 601 Greens. Those were the good ones. Should try all the AJ Fernandez stuff, MOW, Ave Maria. Good Values too. And check out cigarbid dot com. You can really score some good deals there.

    I'm a psychologist and writer.

    Interesting that so many here are of the technical, engineering variety. Is that reflective of the pellet stove owning universe in general, or of the universe of owners who also want to yak about the stoves they own?
