[nfbwatlk] Turning Up the Heat

Ok, so I changed the subject line per Noel's demand!

I have been known to put my hand into a fireplace as well, when the log just won't cooperate.  

But, anyway, normally, you certainly can tell which space a flat burner is in,  by proximity feel, rather than having to put your hand directly on the flat surface. What I worry about is the things people just drop in flat surfaces on a kitchen counter.  Papers, plastic bags, mail, etc.  Could have a good fire if you turn on the wrong burner, or don't make sure the whole stove surface isn't clear.

Er, um, one puts one's hand *above* the heat unless one is a masochist.
Eventually, one learns the approximate location and dimensions of the
several burners and the whole process becomes second-nature.

But then you're talking to someone who reaches into a fire bare-handed to
adjust the logs (if the poker didn't do the trick).

Find the burner by the heat method.  Oh yeah, I get it, that's the one where
you put your finger on the hot spot, right?  Then you know where to put the
pan that you're cooking-I mean the food that you're cooking in the pan.
Lol.  You,:, I'm real fond of that method, Mike.  (Smile).  I like finding
the burner while it's cool, getting my pan arranged squarely and then
turning on 
the heat.  Failing that, gas works great.  Ah welll.    Peace,    
Debby
