Wow, very unflattering photos there J-W. Looks like the photographer had his flash attached to the bottom of the camera. Natural lighting FTW.

We have a B.S. detector when watching television. It is called "The Remote."

My experience with carbon monoxide detectors have been that the go off without a reason. I have had two go off in the middle of the night - called the gas company both times. The result being nothing wrong... That was several years ago. Have they improved them since?

Oh - and the noise they make waking you up almost gives you a heart attack!

My wattle and daub walls allow enough air exchange that I'm safe from carbon monoxide.

I need to get one. It is sometimes hard to tell if I should blame my furnace or Don Julio for the way I feel. Guess I need to know if I may die or just feel like death.

To Do List Today: buy Carbon Monoxide detector have Don Julio install it for me
