Quiet Cravaack

A couple of weeks ago I emailed Chip’s office stating my views on Obama’s jobs bill and I asked for Chip’s view on the bill and if he would be supporting it.

To date, I’ve heard nothing from him.

In the past I’ve email Franken on an unrelated matter and at least his people bothered to send me a standard response in a timely fashion.

Are elected officials obligated to reply to the questions those they represent have for them?

If not, I’ve not sure how appropriate the term ‘representative’ really is.

Steel drum needed!

With the cold weather starting to arrive I’ve been roused to start looking at ways to keep warm.

I found a very cool stove kit that uses a 55 gallon steel drum. The kit adds a door, legs and vent to the drum to make an inexpensive wood stove for my garage.

Trouble is, I have no idea where I can get a 55 gallon steel drum around these parts, can you help?

Free or cheap is best otherwise I could end up with a stove costing more than a cheapo cast iron one from Menards!
