I've uploaded a selection. Seems that furnaces, at least their "personalities", haven't changed much in 100 years!

This is a great bit of humor, Anita! :) I thoroughly enjoyed the tale. Brought back many memories of furnaces, and basements too!

20 tons of coal in the basement! In 2017, the national average sales price of coal at coal mines was $33.72 per short ton.

Here's my second contribution for volume 071. 74 minutes being the standard recording length for a CD, 74 minutes is also the maximum allowable length of a recording for the snf. This one clocks in at 73 1/2 minutes... Long recordings can always be broken into two parts if they run over 74 minutes.

Thanks Sue. That was interesting :D

PLOK
It is said Villa legally married 75 times
In 1920, Villa made an agreement with the Mexican government to retire from hostilities, following the ouster and death of Carranza, and was given a hacienda near Parral, Chihuahua, which he turned into a "military colony" for his former soldiers. In 1923, as presidential elections approached, he re-involved himself in Mexican politics. Shortly thereafter he was assassinated.
Sad ending to a good story.
