    Back in the 50′s my parents had a gas stove in the house where I grew up. The kitchen stove even had a heater on one side for those cold mornings so we didn’t have to go into the cellar to shovel coal into the furnace. I’m glad my current house doesn’t have gas, but there is a new wood stove in the kitchen so I don’t have to turn on the oil furnace.
