    I've got a fireplace with a insert and has pretty logs but has BLUE flames that is kinda freaky. Propane. But kinda cool chilling out on the couch after a few Scotch on the rocks watching ol' blue and scheming about nitrous bows. BTW..guys from 70's or earlier (most) lol, what are flashbacks? Side note...I did not like the original fireplace and since I scheme on everything, I modified the look of it rebuilt the whole unit, reset the bricks and then Travertine tiled it but saved original insert and increased the draft through experimenting with flue angle and size of chimney exit. Thought I needed to make sure no carbon monoxide. Got 1 foot flickering BLUE (yah I said it ...BLUE!) flames above logs now. Grandkids think its cool, and they get to play with matches to fire it up, when Mom and Grandma aren't around. While sipping pop (Coke products,lol) and candy right before supper.
    Addicted to Slayers or Slayr's, have more than one. Probably enjoy the mechanical side of archery the best. I have really enjoyed the articles and the stories on this site. I strive to help others with what little knowledge I have.

    Even though making firewood is a lot of work, sure get a lot of heat from a cord, 1st you sweat while cutting it, and again when splitting, some more when loading onto truck, once again when unloading it, and yet another time stacking it, and then finally you get to heat your house with it. Even with all that warm work, I do miss wood heat.
