"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Simple Tip

With woodstove heat you have to add moisture to the air. In Nevada I had a lovely Revere Ware teapot that I filled each night and placed upon the stove.

At the Double Nickel things are slow to be put in the trash can as I look to see multiple uses for the item before I cast it aside. We left our lovely Revere Ware teapot, so what to use? I have several clean, labels removed tin cans from the weekly meals, which we fill each night and place on the woodstove.

Simple tip and it actually looks quite eclectic!

When my son and I built one, he wanted to 'improve' on it so he will be able to talk to his friend who stays on the floor underneath us two doors to the one side. Needless to say it is the precise reason mr. Bell came to his amazing equipment.
