Do you guys heat with softwood, hardwood or a mixture?

We only burn hardwoods here for heat.

12 & 24 hours ain't metric ... it would need to be a factor of 10 somehow. Then you'll need to metricate the calendar next!

Metric systems have their uses ..... but they ain't all some folks crack them up to be!  ;c)
"Information is not knowledge, Knowledge is not wisdom, Wisdom is not truth, Truth is not beauty, Beauty is not love, Love is not music: Music is THE BEST...   
Wisdom is the domain of the Wis (which is extinct). Beauty is a French phonetic corruption of a short cloth neck ornament currently in resurgence..."
