Of course, cation is needed when using any kind of fire. Just take the space heaters I use to heat the house. The darn things are very hot. You will get a serious burn if you touch it, let alone knock one over. I have yet or anyone in my house for that matter done any of these things. It is all about pre-cations. I recommend a CO detector. I just bought a new one even though the old one was supposed to be good for another 2 after 3 years of use, just in case and I have yet to detect any CO on both read outs. Our house is really drafty. :-)

I also recommend a fireplace grate if you have little ones running around or maybe dogs.

Either that our your brain is running low on anti-freeze. :-)

Some models of Dietz oil lanterns will go out if you tip them over. The Jupiter model has a relatively wide base too.

"Vodka doesn't freeze, got enough of that onboard to stay alive..."

There is a difference between being alive and being preserved.

But there is preserved, and WELL preserved. When my back acts up (which is pretty often), I have found that vodka (even the cheap stuff) works as well as prescription meds, and tastes better.

Merry Christmas!!!
