I just awoke from spending my Friday evening sleeping in front of the fireplace.  The warmth of the fire encircled me like a blanket and all I could hear was the intoxicating sound of the crackling wood.  I lay there mesmerized by the comfort but alone in my surroundings, for the house was quiet.  The light from the flames bounced against the walls and shown brightly just for me.....I should have stayed there all night.....

You are blessed by being able to do that. We had a fireplace in our NJ home and our Pennsylvania farm. Here in Las Vegas we have one but can't use it because of the smog alerts. It is probably one of the most relaxing things I've ever done. Enjoy this finer thing in your life. Best Regards, Bill
