Video: Firewood 101

Fall is almost here, and winter is closer at hand than you think. Depending on where you live, you may have spent some extra money on home heating last winter. Heating with wood can be an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels.

I recently got together with my friend Scott Laliberte to discuss the ins and outs of heating with firewood. Here is an informative video of that conversation. This video is the first in a series. Next time, we’ll talk about how to season your firewood.

I like that you both have orange shirts. It reminds me of Fall. And Pumpkins. It’s cool that one of them is wearing sunglasses too.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
