It is freezing in the north east but a good fire will increase the temperature in my house my 10 degrees. I bought a face cord of cherry wood 2 weeks ago that came in damp, but I figured if it sat in the garage, it would dry out in time.
I figured wrong.
I tried to make a fire when temperatures here hit -10 and I got a little of sizzling but no fire. The wood refused to burn. I tried splitting it (imagine me with an ax!) , adding kindling, paper, basically grabbed everything I could get my hands on to get a fire burning – but the wood would not ignite at all.
I was exhausted with the effort and finally, I just gave up – cranked the thermostat up and sat down annoyed and discouraged.
From the emails and questions I’ve been getting, this is the way a lot of you feel about the efforts you’ve been putting into social media. So, I’ve decided to do develop something I’ve been thinking about for a number of years – The Social Networking Masters Class.
