This evening could, quite possible, be the last cool evening where a fire in the fireplace would be comfortable.

My friend Brian B. brought over several cords of firewood earlier in the winter and the family have put it to good use over the chilling spells during the coldest part of the winter.

There is something calming about a fire; my friends and I call it ‘Caveman TV’, since we all get the 1,000-yard stare after a few minutes into the fire:

The thousand-yard stare or two-thousand-yard stare is a phrase coined to describe the limp, unfocused gaze of a battle-weary soldier, but the symptom it describes may also be found among victims of other types of trauma.
