Lo, my name has served me well, for I am the Goddess of Fire!

See, I am loathe to start a fire in the woodstove when Don is home. If I tanked, he would be standing there to witness my failure. And since he is better than me at everything in this world (with the lonely exception of jousting), that makes the failure all the more keen. Yeah. I'm a freak. So?

Don will not be home from work for another hour. With no one to witness any false starts or abject suckiness, I had at it. Now, a lovely flames are dancing in the green soapstone stove. First try. Just newspaper and kindling.

Ummm... it isn't cheating to use newspaper, is it? Even Goddesses of Fire should be willing to take a shortcut.

Newspaper isn't cheating at all -- it's a great way to start a fire -- according to my Dad(the firemaster) the Times works best. ;)

just avoid using color ink newspapers- toxins in the inks et al.

if it burns...use it.!

btw Im sending you and Don some piccies from the shoot- not official ones but interesting all the same.
