Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

How to


I am a little short on time, so today’s post is short and sweet.

My discovery today is that mag wheel polish removes the thin carbon deposits that attach so well to my gold-plated wood stove door after a protective glove or other fabric contacts the  hot surface and burns on. The only other remedy, which does not work as well, is soaking the door in cold water and, after a few hours, scrubbing with soap and water.

Mag wheel polish on a moist rag is all that is required. Other common polishes either do not work or will scratch the gold.
