i dont know why this sprang to mind but can you all remember having to draw the coal fires with newspaper to get it going..manys the time the paper caught alight..it used to start burning from the middle and work outwards..then we had to screw it up very quickly and it ended up going up the chimney..[Little LOL]

I can only say that as a youngster I didn't know too much about it. I had five older sisters I was well looked after. Now my wife Jo looks after me.
