Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    The fly, fish, bear, hunter, mouse & the cat
    This is a story about A Fly, a Fish, a Bear A Hunter, a Mouse and a Cat.



    There is a moral to this story......

    (Maybe not the one Most of you expect.... So, just read on!)

    In the dead of summer a fly was resting among leaves beside a stream.

    The hot, dry fly said to no one in particular,

    'Gosh...if I go down three inches I will feel the mist from the water and I will be refreshed.'

    There was a fish in the water thinking,

    'Gosh...if that fly goes down three inches, I can eat him.'

    There was a bear on the shore thinking,

    'Gosh...if that fly goes down three inches
    That fish will jump for the fly...
    And I will grab the fish!!'

    It also happened that a hunter was farther up the bank
    Of the lake preparing to eat a cheese sandwich....

    'Gosh,' he thought, 'if that fly goes down three inches...
    And that fish leaps for it...
    That bear will expose himself and grab for the fish.
    I'll shoot the bear and have a proper lunch.'


    Now, you probably think this is
    Enough activity on one river bank,

    But I can tell you there's more....


    A wee mouse by the hunter's foot was thinking,

    'Gosh, if that fly goes down three inches...
    And that fish jumps for that fly..
    And that bear grabs for that fish..
    The dumb hunter will shoot the bear
    And drop his cheese sandwich.'

    A cat lurking in the bushes took in this scene and thought,
    (as was fashionable to do on the banks of
    This particular river around lunch time)

    'Gosh...if that fly goes down three inches..
    And that fish jumps for that fly .
    And that bear grabs for that fish
    And that hunter shoots that bear..
    And that mouse makes off with the cheese sandwich .
    Then I can have mouse for lunch.'


    The poor fly is finally so hot and so dry that he
    Heads down for the cooling mist of the water.

    The fish swallows the fly...


    The bear grabs the fish..


    The hunter shoots the bear..


    The mouse grabs the cheese sandwich...


    The cat jumps for the mouse..
    The mouse ducks...

    The cat falls into the water and drowns.



    NOW, The Moral Of The Story....


    Whenever a fly goes down three inches,




    Some pussy is gonna be in serious danger.
