The recent apartment fire really left me shaken, so I'm reworking the floor plan; here's the prototype...

"Even longer since a seed popped and burned a hole in my shirt."- Artie

I know what you mean. That's why I started buying the purple stuff for $450/oz. Kinda rough on the wallet, but not one damn seed ever. But then Chad got busted and I don't know where else to get it. Oh, Chad.........

Each lemur has a super soaker. Once a week we hold fire drills. You can hear the hooting and screaming for miles.

Probably the 1st thing to do to prevent fire is to not live in a structure where other people do things that will start a fire. Then you can practice safe habits that will help prevent a fire.

I too, also, gave up the fiendish weed. I have not burned myself or my chair in almost threee years. Even longer since a seed popped and burned a hole in my shirt. If anyone remembers that.

Yes. A bucket, hose and a faucet.

First, I quit smoking many years ago; that ends the possibility of fires from "discarded smoking materials."
