I really like logs,…… they warm you up five times;
Once when you chop the tree down.
Then again when you saw the tree into logs.
And again when you split the logs to fit the stove.
Then again when you carry them into the house.
Finally when you burn them.
Then once again when they set your chimney on fire.
Finally, when we set about cleaning the fireplace without making a mess!
Somewhere in the deep recesses of my scull, a memory tells me that the EPA (Environmental Pollution Authority) regs for burning firewood in Aus, mandates that the wood has been dried for 7 years since being cut.
