A Red Fire Place

Many days in the winter in Southern California can be no burn days for wood burning fireplaces.   On bad air days, the Air Quality Control Board will issue a no burn advisory for your zip code.   Healthy Hearts  web site suggests some ways to burn clean all of the time.   Pesky particles from a “dirty”  fire can harm your lungs, and those of others,  not to mention be a fire hazard.

Ho Ho Ho,  I think that this red fireplace is for decoration only, but it is very festive.  I beseeched staff to find a velvet padded ottoman for me to pose on, to improve the composition of the photograph, but none were to be had.  So here you have relatively short me,  and a very tall fireplace.    I think its very festive anyway !    I wonder what is in those stockings ?      See you later pals,  we are off to find some delphiniums.   Staff says we must find delphiniums before we go to the sausage shop.    Go figure . . .RedFireplaceZ
