Actually.. yes (and no I'm not kidding.. but probably only 1-2 inches )

Fresh air is good for the soul.

Perhaps you should sleep with your window open too... start preparing for the Freezing Our Buttes Off Ride

Toss in some hot flashes and it's only by chance that the house hasn't burned to the ground yet.

I simply apologize every time I see PR blush and her face start to glisten.

Used to have one of those random cold breezes. Then I caulked the beam across the center of the great room. Between that, new windows, 6" walls with vapor barrier, the upstairs stays toasty. The downstairs suffers from a gas fireplace of questionable ventilation, and a dog door to the garage.

The $1500 energy tax credit and $6500 repeat home buyer credits are gonna pay for a nice honeymoon.
