The wood stove is burning 24 hours now! The house is warm ,. Feels great to come home to a warm house on a cold night and knowing you are saving money at the same time... There is always someone home to put wood in it, so it never goes out! The wood we burn is free, we are trimming our olive trees. And yes we have a lot of them too. Free heating and free olive oil! What else can anyone ask for !
