PillowGirl you rock! I babble with her for a bit and couldn' t get the shot of the fire in the fireplace, yeah it's still going! ha ha...She told me to speed up the shutter...how many shots happen. I have a button for that on my point and shoot...it worked! You will also be glad to know that I had a nice comfortable fire going most of the day, and no one complained...ha ha, they were all outside! See those coals, this is almond and it burns HOT and clean! We haven't had the heat on at all! It got down to 29 last night!
