    Each system has their place.

    I love pellet stoves for those days when you want to burn all day long, but don't want to worry about it and tend it. Just keep the hopper full and burn away. Their down side is that if you lose power then you don't get heat.

    The wood stove and the bricks is nice for evening fires. Three bricks will get us through an evening and allow us to cool the rest of the bunker down during that time. Took me a while to learn how to position the bricks to get a good fire going.

    An all day burn with the wood stove using bricks is a bit of a pain due to the constant tending. It requires a minimum of four bricks to be burning all the time. It get's very toasty right near the stove. I use elbow length lined leather welding gloves to tend the fire due to the heat.

    Well, you can always come out and spend some time with cousins Bufford and Cooter. By the end of the visit you'll realize that...

    I have no idea what you'll realize at the end of such a visit. That's sort of the thing with cousins Bufford and Cooter. One minute you are pulling swap grass out of an outboard motor (they never listen), and the next minute you're discussing quantum mechanics and particle physics.

    Now I know what you are thinking... what on earth do Cousins Bufford and Cooter know about fixing an outboard motor clogged with swamp grass?

    I'm not sure.

    But I'll let you know after my next dinner with them. Which reminds me, I need to brush up on my quantum mechanics and particle physics. Good thing the cousins bought me those "science facts" Dixie cups.

    I remember many years ago when we (my mom, my brother and I) were all into tennis.
    We would play quite a bit and also hit balls launched from a ball machine at the John Wayne Tennis Club.
    Once mom missed a ball and got one right in the eye. Sure, she always said exactly what happened but you could tell a few folks did not believe her...

    Interesting tid bit (or not)... It costs exactly the same amount to heat with the wood stove as it does to heat the area with electric heat. Zero savings.
    But with the wood stove, the bunker stays warm if the power goes out....

    What I like best about them is their consistency in terms of heat output and burn time. It makes it easy to figure out how many to use, and when to stop feeding the stove if you want the burn to die down and go out.
    When I worked in a refugee camp, the UN would give them sort of round hollow sticks about as big round as a beverage can made of compressed rice hulls.

    I agree with all of this. While this behavior may not be completely his fault, and I have sympathy for his situation, ultimately he needs to establish self control, and has no right to threaten others with harm....
