For the past couple of years my hubby has been complaining that he can’t find a styptic pencil anywhere. I have even gone to different stores with him to look, and the ones that I’ve been able to find he insists aren’t “good enough.” I just found one online at pinaud at smallflower.com and I am going to show him this picture and ask him if he wants me to order it and try it out.

Do you remember collecting vinyl records in your youth? Or are you so young that you started out with CDs? My parents have a huge collection of vinyl albums that they don’t listen to anymore because their stereo broke down and they couldn’t find a repairman to fix it! I recently found a great deal on a USB turntable and from what I understand, if I buy this thing it will convert the albums into a digital file so we can store the file on a computer and then play it through the computer! I think that would be so nice to do for my parents, don’t you agree?

An alternative to breathing wood smoke

Guest post by Luther Wilson:

I have asthma and COPD..in other words, my lungs are rather shot and I will indeed blame it partially on breathing wood smoke that came out of my wood stove at the farm for years, as I used to take my writing out there, as it was so peaceful. But my lungs suffered and I knew despite of loved sitting in front of that stove to write, I need an alternative. I started looking into gas logs and found a site that would give me info on Gas Log FAQs that I needed.

This website that I found has it all! I’m pretty darn impressed and this may save my lungs! They have really great low prices I can afford. Hey dig this…no sales tax and free shipping too! So that cuts the prices down even more and won’t put a major dent into my pocket book. This is great news to me. I’ll maybe save my lungs and my bank account because of this. Not to mention that they also have ALL KINDS of styles and varieties of awesome logs that are gas, even outdoor gas logs.  No more chopping and splitting wood. No more cleaning up ashes and trying to figure out where the heck I’m going to get rid of them either!

I think this is the answer for my love of sitting before a fire and being cozy, writing and just watching the flames. I love gas logs, and I’ll be warm through the winter also!
