Warm toes!

November 6th, 2010 by Heidi

There had obviously once been a wood stove, well in fact more than one, here. But they had been removed sometime in the past and replaced with electric baseboards and a gas furnace. Neither of which thrills me from an eco-friendly point of view and I hate bills, who doesn’t. With 120 acres that is mostly forest I don’t really see why we would pay someone else for fuel to keep us warm!

October 28th, 2010 by Heidi

Today I discovered this new search engine that returns everything about the subject you are searching for that was written in the last 14 days.

To get their name out there they are offering an amazon gift card to the first 100 people adding the widget to their site. Of course there is more to it than that – the widget needs to be used. So I am kind of asking a favour – I would be most grateful if you could try out this new search engine and help me get more books! :)
