As I sit here watching the fire in my fireplace (Side note: this is the first time in my life I have every lived in a home with a fireplace) this is the second fire this season I have built. I was just wondering a couple of things. 1.) How often do you burn a fire in your fireplace? 2.) And what is your reason for burning the fire a.) warmth b.) to watch c.) or both I have mine gone right now for both. We are trying to not start using the gas heat till we absolutely have too, but I am also finding it is very relaxing to sit her and watch the logs burn

We have a portable one in our den area downstairs. I bought it for my hubby last year for Christmas. We have lit it 2 times so far. It is nice for a bit of atmosphere and romance. Upstairs, we cheat. We have a dvd with several different choices of fireplaces to look at. It plays music with each. Just right when you are in the mood for it.

You have a portable one does it burn wood or is it electric? I have never gotten excited about watching fireplaces on TV, even when I didn't have a fireplace. I have a bunch of friends who also have a DVD with Fireplaces on them and they love them, but for me I really like the real thing
