Tennessee State Fire Marshal Offers Do’s and Don’ts of Wood Stove Usage

 

Tennessee State Fire MarshalNashville, TN – As 2018’s brutally cold weather continues, wood stoves might seem to be a cheaper alternative to traditional heating sources for some Tennesseans. However, the Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFMO) warns that wood stoves can pose a significant fire and carbon monoxide risk if they’re not properly installed and maintained.

Alternative heating sources such as wood stoves, chimneys, and space heaters are common in Tennessee and are just as hazardous as traditional heating sources (electric, gas). Since 2010, wood stoves have been responsible for 23 percent of fatal heating fires statewide according to SFMO data.

Dodging the Roadkill: It’s A Journey Not A Destination

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – You see this “meme” all over social media. “Being a biker is a journey, NOT a destination.” Or, “It’s about the ride, not the destination.”

Have you ever wondered just WHAT this journey is? Does it matter?

In my short time as a biker, I’ve discovered that this one theme is the common thread that connects us.

To me, it speaks volumes about how we don’t ever want the “journey” to end. We want to ride forever. We don’t want there to be a “destination” because that implies that the journey is over.

Too deep?

Celebrate 2019 New Year’s Eve with NASA’s New Horizons Spacecraft

 

NASA Headquarters

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – The New Year’s celebration to usher in 2019 will include an event like no other – more than four billion miles from Earth.

In just under a year – shortly after midnight Eastern Time on January 1st, 2019 – NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft will buzz by the most primitive and most distant object ever explored. New Horizons’ encounter with Kuiper Belt object 2014 MU69, which orbits a billion miles beyond Pluto, will offer the first close-up look at such a pristine building block of the solar system – and will be performed in a region of deep space that was practically unknown just a generation ago.
