    After the wood fireplaces that we had for years, the gas fireplace is wonderful for just the reasons that you listed. Enjoy!

    I guess Iím nostalgic for the old wood burning stove days. But Iím not so far removed to forget the endless task of cutting, splitting and stacking firewood before each winter. In the seventies during the Carter Administration we had the energy crisis and thatís when our gas forced air furnace was switched off and two wood burning stoves were installed. One in the living room fireplace and one in the basement. Keeping those going was a big job. It was messy, dirty work but I did enjoy the crackling of of the wood and the sparks dancing and he licking flames. After a long day hunting in the cold of winter, there was therapy in that arrangement.

    Now, I have a deluxe gas fireplace with four lighted ember settings to simulate the coals, five fan settings to blow out the heated air at might discretion and five flame settings as well a a constant pilot, all behind a special radiant glass and inside a jet black metal firebox. I am spoiled. And I like it.

    Nice IL.
    Your fireplace looks very inviting and I love the arch on the doorway.

    But you can't burn your ID sensitive trash in a fake fireplace, can you?

    Do any of you remember what that old fireplace spline was called? I am thinking it was similar to Oakum, which is used in plumbing.

    I talked to the artist you know in Hermann today, the metal artist. Ann? Maybe, already I forgot her name. I told her I have an online friend who knows her, and decribed you as someone who did glass work with her husband until recent years and who lived near Branson. She said to tell you Hi.

    I saw my orthopedic surgeon today for the follow-up on the wrist surgery (almost two months ago - dang, time flies!) She is really impressed with the progress I have made; I haven't been playing much guitar because it got aggravated the other day, but I am working away at the jeweler's bench, seven weeks post-op! I am going to go to OT for twelve more visits to work on the stretching and strengthening. The first month was really difficult, but now that I know what it all entails, I'll probably end up getting the other hand done (my dominant hand) at some point but not any time soon. It is pretty sore but not THAT sore yet - maybe next fall, which is my surgery season (always in October)!
