    OK. Time for my annual thread. I will start it off with the same one I always do.

    "You know you are a real wood burner if at a wine tasting you refer to the Cabernet as 'Oakie with just a hint of creosote.'"

    Have fun gang.

    You check on the stove(s) and add a couple of splits in the morning before you pee.
