We live very close together in a valley - the smoke just sits here and we breath in each other's fireplace smoke. Let's prevent asthma attacks by burning our fireplace wood just when it rains. Kids and others will be able to breath much more easily.

They should ban all wood burning/fireplace usage. I can't stand the smell in my hair and there is no reason people need to use their fireplaces. S'mores can easily be made in ovens with the broiler on. People can buy the DVD of the wood burning photo with sound.

Yeah..while we are at it, "they" should ban all BBQ pits, and restaurants who BBQ, all gas burning anything including diesel, all perfumes, all sewage pipes and sewage plants..I can't stand the smell of any of them and there is no reason for people to use BBQ pits or cars, and no reason for perfumes if we all just bathe ( in cold water, of course, for the fresh air contribution, or sewage if we just all bury our waste in our backyards.

Think about what you are saying!
