I must admit that this is a cause near to my heart - I used to be an HIV researcher

I have and use all of the above to stay warm... Takes forever to get this hose warmed up it's a constant chore in the winter.. The house has Zero Insulation.. I have tried to get hubby to help put some in but no good. he won't do it. I will have to buy some and climb up into the attic and do it myself! Joy!!
Your not talking about fire starters are you? I don't think I know what kind you are talking about. Are they a substitute for wood heating? I make my own firestarter fron old eggcartons and saw dust that people just sweep away and wax. You melt the wax . while thats melting you por sawdust and small wood chips into the eggcartons, cardboard, that is! Then when the wax is melted you fill each egg cup with the wax over the top of the saw dust! Then you cut the cups apart when cooled and voilla! You put 1 or two in the fireplace or stove and layer your wood kindling criss cross over the wax, then a pile of log. Light the cardboard sides of each of your starter you put in stove and instant fire and no messing around with the bellows forever to get it going!
Is this stuff your talking about like compressed with other stuff or is it a chemical compound of somekind?
Sir Winter is definitely here! It is freezing in this house! I really want to get gas heat.. I hate being cold!! I like it when it is just right. Not hot, but comfortable enough to not have to wear long Johns all the time! I am wearing right now my Bra, my shirt, my sweater, my hooded sweatshirt and am wrapped in a blanket with a fire in the other room! I am still freezing!

Hi Dave. I've noticed that when I want to reply via the 'quote' function it automatically takes me to the 'Quick Reply' rather than the full version, meaning that I have to cut and paste. Any plans to direct to the full reply (like it did on the old site)?
