A hundred years ago, people would meet around the fireplace to keep warm, exchange stories, and share a warming drink. Some things never change.

It sure does bring some nostalgic images to my mind when I look a this photo Larry! I love the spinning wheel and the jug of homemade brew on the hearth. Excellent image for the theme!

:-) I just imagine Brenda sitting in that chair, covered in a nice quilt spinning the wheel and grandkids sitting at her feet listening to the old stories. You have got my old brain working so it must be an excellent shot :-)

Nice picture. And for those who have a centrally heated house without a fireplace, you can buy [url=http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fire-DVD-Light-Box/dp/B001NWICKY/ref=tag_tdp_sv_edpp_i]one of these[/url] and meet around the tele.

What a beautiful place for a chitchat on a cold winter's day, Mr. Ignelson!
