The time of year for an open fire, or a fire in a stove or fireplace, is upon us. Anything to keep the cold and wet out, really. How do you choose to keep warm in the long, dark, winter months? This guy really pushes the boat out when it comes to firewood:

I keep telling everyone that here the days are warm and sunny. It's almost got to T-shirt and shorts weather. The sunshine pours down like honey and warms me right to the bone. Aren't you jealous?

A brilliant skit! These two have redeemed my opinion of the American sense of humour. I especially enjoyed the careful and subtle scenting with fresh ginger (and the enormous circular saw blade made of MDF in the background). Decidedly cockle-warming!

Central heating radiators here. But it’s a big house and not many radiators in the hallway so we either keep the door shut or use an electric heater to warm that extra place

Ah, the ubiquitous radiator, or electric heater... Nowhere near as romantic

@pgntwo no not really. We do have a fireplace though but it’s just not ready for use yet. Hopefully it will be by next year.

We have central heat, and I have a little heater by my computer if it gets really cold. We do have a fireplace, but I think it's more burning small fires than for keeping the place warm. Funny video, I thought at first it was real.

The video is very well done. I had an infra-red bulb to keep my feet warm in a house I lived in decades ago.

@pgntwo I loved how the woman bought a tiny amount of wood, and they took it to the car and put it in the back. It's not laugh out loud funny, but very funny nonetheless.

Well, until today it hasn't been very cold and compared to what you go through it's probably not cold even now to you. I'm just glad I don't need to burn wood. It's a shame that some people do because trees are not as prolific as they once were.

Trees probably replenish quicker than oil or coal... and sunlight's scarce around these parts at this time of year.

That is probably very true @pgntwo the problem is that with the decrease of bees trees are not reproducing as much as they should be.

@rebelann Bees may not feature quite as much in tree pollination as they do in flowering plant pollination. Here is how our 5-month old GSD looks today, he'll probably see his first snow tomorrow!

Believe it or not, several years ago my Boss started selling firewood over the Interwebs...Main Event Wood...he stopped when he found out there are all sorts of laws about transporting raw wood over state lines. Has to do with environmental issues.

The video above sounds plausible until about half-way through... And yes, shipping untreated wood can lead to the spread of nasty critters and fungal baddies.

The special rubbing technic of artichoke to the wood was particularly appealing.

That was ginger being rubbed on it, I think - artichoke and ginger do resemble one another a bit in appearance, but that is as far as the similarity goes...

It's not officially winter here yet but it sure feels like it. I've had my string vest on for months now, and that keeps me toasty. I don't have a 'real fire' to warm my cockles. I do miss it.
