  1. Good cold morning, in the low 40’s to start the day, from Atlanta.

    I do not know what those are in the header, but the thought came to mind, maybe a fancier version of my grandma’s pot belly stove😃
    Very elaborate! Beautiful work, whatever they are. Maybe the sign says, but I can’t read it.

  2. Morning all! 30 degrees here heading up to 45! Let the ice on the roads begin to melt away!

    Those are lovely stoves up there. When in town I had a little similar stove that I placed in my garden out back. I put a potted plant in the stove pipe hole then opened the door with another cascading plant. When we moved here in the forest my daughter took it and put it in her front garden.

  3. Good morning after an unusually restful night. We slept though they may have been up partying for all we know.

    Thirty one here and snow in the forecast.

    Husband is off, taking a car in for repairs and twenty one year old to the grocery store. Nurse expected at some point.

    My dad has added a new question to his daily routine of asking if his wife has passed: do I know where his car is?

  4. I posted a video from America’s Test Kitchens on FB about cracking eggs. Some people crack on a flat surface, others on an edge. The video guy cracks one egg on another egg.

    I use an edge which gives a finer break of the shell along with the membrane but might cause eggshell fragments to release into the egg. Yes, that happens occasionally.

  5. It’s the plan, but that doesn’t mean it’s right.

    There’s been gas stoves in this house for over 70 years, and no one died or got sick from these alleged pollutants.

    This, like banning natural gas for heat in new homes is part of an agenda driven effort to do away with fossil fuels. Science has nothing to do with it.

    I’m buying a new gas stove in the next 2 weeks.

  6. I have treatment early tomorrow I have to be at the hospital by 7:45AM, so I will post tomorrow’s threads later tonight.

    After tomorrow’s treatment I will be 2/3 complete. 🙂

  7. The stoves are a sampling of the work that was done at the Hopewell Furnace.

    The sign just says don’t touch them because they’re old and your greasy hands may harm the finish. 🙂

  8. AJ @5:22, agree.

    And real cooks, let alone true chefs (I’m neither but know a few), don’t like electric stoves. At all.

    7:45 to be anywhere is early in my book. Praying for treatment that’s as easy as possible and glad you’re knocking them down, one by one, and the end is somewhat now in sight. That helps.

    I talked to a friend in one of our large Italian families in town a while ago whose Parkinson’s has taken a turn for the worse. He was diagnosed 8 years ago but only recently it seems to be getting much more serious. 😦 He was a football player, surfer and all around athletic guy (as were all his kids). He has a large, well-to-do family so will be taken care of, but I just hated to hear he’s now having so many issues.

    It’s raining off and on here, but during one of the breaks I got Abby out for a walk. She’s still skittish, I have to really keep her on a short, wound-up leash to make sure she doesn’t dash in front or behind and around me.

  9. But she does enjoy the walks, the sniffing and just getting out to see the neighborhood. It’s important to get her acclimated and exercised. Good for me, too, of course.

  10. AJ, I agree with you about gas stoves. We have had the power down for extended periods of time too often to rely on electricity for essentials like cooking and hot water.

  11. It was the one good thing about the last hurricane, and the 4 days without power that followed.

    We still had hot water for showers and hot meals, as both are gas and require no electricity.

  12. To quote: they can have my gas stove when they pry it from
    My cold dead hands.
    I live in a hurricane zone. It can take weeks to get power lines back up.

  13. Trash is gone and I’m thankful. One can had blown over and the other had the lid open. I prayed for help as I just can’t walk down there. I drove down to get the cans. I tipped them to get the water out. The trash can had one of those little vodka bottles at the bottom which sure didn’t come from me. A mystery
