    I was a diesel school bus mechanic since 1997. I recently changed careers. I am now a Nuclear Plant Operator. I made this move to give my growing family a better future. I also Did this to preserve my body. I was tired of everything hurting all of the time.

    I would guess that the answer is that those of us who are techies look upon a pellet stove as a technical device just crying out for attention and improvement. Can't you hear the crying??? I can! Ooops, forgot you're a psychologist...... :)

    I am unwillingly retired from working for the incompetent to do the unnecessary for the ungrateful. I did so much for so long with so little, I was qualified to do just about anything with nothing.

    Field engineer for a water company. Pellet and wood stove enthusiastic since 2009, after moving from CA to MA, 2008 ice storm gave us a nice welcome, 5 days with no power, no heat, no generator, and no water at home, 14 days total with no UNITIL power. I have to include generator, chain saws, portable gas stove, water purification kit, military food rations, and my heavy winter wardrobe in my signature.
