GB - This was is an antique, so I am not positive. I think that they put sand in the middle then placed the jug in the fire - The ceramic was known to hold the heat for a long time - A good place to keep your feet nice and toasty!!

Okay kids, let's play.
What ship is this?
I need its official name, its nickname, and where it lives.
Good luck.
Buck

Right, right and right. Your post. Suggestion; let's stay with the Naval theme (after all, you started it with the Hunley!)
Take it away!

Interesting about filling your bed warmer with sand, Reanie525i. I had something very similar in Britain, made not that long ago either, when I lived in a very old house in a rainy part of the country and any help keeping warm in bed was welcome. I called it "the pig" given its looks. It must have been slightly different to yours because I had to fill it with hot water, like an ordinary hot water bottle. It would keep hot all night long and into the next day, far better than a rubber hot water bottle. One night, one of the cats decided it was so cold he was going to come under the quilt with us. He got the most awful fright when he saw the pig! Mind you, they were all quite happy to snuggle up against it on top of the quilt during the daytime.

I'll have to do it this evening since I overslept by about 25 minutes this morning. I have just enough time to check messages. Sorry guys. Time out!
