Ours will probably go towards an outdoor wood stove. Hubby is tired of paying high heating costs when we have 20 acres of free fuel.

You got that right, June - pandering is more like it. I heard a suggestion on the radio that the gov't should have used it to build/repair infrastructure. That would stimulate the construction economy *and* get something useful done.
GG, I hope that when you visit Italy(we were in Rome) the dollar has gone up in value.....we were there a few months ago and if the $$ is as stagnated as it was when we were there your $600 won't go far.......and we stayed at a 4 star hotel and took public transport everywhere except for the Borgia museum 'cause it had a cut-off time to be there or you lost your $$$ for the tour (and boy, was it worth it)---for some reason the buses were not picking up that day to go in that direction so we took a taxi--only 8 dollars and worth every cent
