Merry Christmas from either New Port Richey, FL or Woody Creek, CO.

That is depressing for a couple of reasons, not least because I enjoy making s'mores.

Breathing winter air scented by wood smoke seems utterly unlike puffing on a cigarette or inhaling the exhaust from a passing truck. But this is an illusion.

Happy Holidays, Buster.

They failed to get the fire hot enough before introducing the tree. And lighter fluid? Very poor technique.

I go camping. A LOT. I am screwed.

But Sam Harris was wrong at least in my case. My response was not resistance...it was grudging acceptance.

Yeah, I just don't care about things that don't directly involve me enough to get upset about them.

F'rinstance: I eat and wear and breathe too many chemicals. Yeah, but the odds are I'll still live significantly longer than I would've had I been born in the pre-(these)-chemicals age. So on balance I'm ahead. Sure, give me that non-aluminum deodorant, but don't expect me to get all excited about it one way or the other.

I am with you on this. I live in the city and my idiot neighbor has is goddam fireplace going half the year. And he smokes. It's like he hates lungs.

It's best to do it outside in a firepit, so you can dump a bunch of Xmas trees together. Make certain they are nice and dried out.

Merry Christmas, Fredericks.
