I grew up with a wood burner.  I don't miss the work.  I sure miss every thing else about them.  The fire going out in the wee hours of the morning waking up to see your breath.  LOL.  boy we got dressed in a hurry.

by landline do you mean the ones that plug into a phone jack?  No I don't have that.  I do have one that plugs in to an outlet.  I can take it with me where ever I go but it is not a cell phone.  It doesn't run on the net so if I get rid of the internet I still have a phone.  I consider that a landline.  It's not a voip.  I am disappointed with it as I was told it was only going to run 25.00 a month and free long distance.  I get the long distance but I pay more than what I was told for it.

I hope to remember this information for if and when I ever try to do something like this.  I love YouTube.  Good source for knowledge.

I would so relax in that tub.  My tub is small but I still soak in it time to time.  Some times with a glass of wine.  Don't do the candles only because I don't have any.

Off-Topic / How do you vacation.

I day dream of taking a cruise... then you hear on the news of some thing going wrong with a cruise ship.  I don't care to fly.  I would like to take a river boat cruise.  I think that is to expensive for what it is.  I am working towards a good train ride but it seems like you still wouldn't see anything.  It would be like riding a bus unless you get a sleeper car.  I actually really take more of a staycation.  Basically inexpensive and definitely more comfortable.  How do you vacation?   

Off-Topic / Things I thought funny

I am watching an old comedian.  He was popular when I was a teen.  Man he could make us laugh.  I am watching him now.  His old show.  I am thinking what did I think was funny about his act?  Don't get me wrong.  He was very talented but his stand up act was lame.  I guess I never watched that until today.  He even sounded like he was tired of it.  Do you ever feel like that?  Watching something you at one time thought highly of and now when you see it you think what the heck?

Yes.   They seem to think they know better than I.  I hate it.  Luckily they don't live with me anymore.  Still the same town.  I never thought I would be happy that I didn't have my kids in my house, but, I am.  Good luck to you.

I have entered a few times.  I got bored with it.  One year I tried for a few months to get in on a radio call to win.  Never made it to hello.  A few years later made the call contest to the local station and won a dvd.  Sometimes you get lucky.  I have never one any thing big. But it's fun to play.

I think that they are adorable.  I always thought that I would like to have one. Then after reading some of these comments I am not so sure anymore.  Its really just a fancy she shed.  But still it would be nice to have just for a place to take a break and get out of the house.

Do you go to movie theaters?  I don't.  They are to expensive and basically not fun.  I have analog t.v. I used to have a collection of vhs or dvd's  Just don't have the devices to run them on anymore since streaming became the new format.  Now it's bad enough when you make a purchase on line for an old movie to rent or to own.  The problem with owning online is if for some reason you no longer get that service you don't have access to the movies you bought. 

The other day I was walking my grandkid around down town.  Walked by the movie theater.  Seen the billboard sign and had to step back and really look at it.  Yes the movie is almost 20 years old.  It's not a remake of any kind.  Nothing new or more special about it.  I have the dvd and online.  What the heck?  I thought movie theaters were for new releases.   Are they going to charge the full admition price for this movie?   :confused1:  I really hope this is the Saturday matinee movie. Even then I think they charge to much for the matinee.
