I, for one, enjoy photographs of things like boilers and radiators.

I'll take some this weekend, when I'm actually home in the daylight!
There are some with kittens instead.
YAY for not being confined to 4 foot area of each room over winter!
I know! It's brilliant. I can actually take my time getting dressed in the morning instead of frantically donning layers before I freeze after my two minute shower.
You've gone native. Excitement over central heating indeed.
Next, you'll be explaining a really good cup of tea to me.
It depends what time of day it is, really. In the morning I like a good strong cup of builders, plenty of milk. At coffee I have Earl Grey with a bit of lemon squeezed in. After lunch, I favour a fruit tisane. After 5 PM, I drink peppermint tea - can be made from fresh leaves if I'm at home.
I have recently discovered Yunnan (Twinings variety, since I couldn't find any better) thanks to a friend, and it's very good! It's like a very mild Lapsang Souchong. I have been having it every morning at work now, and going back to Tetley's brickie tea this morning was a bit of a shock. I am also working my way through a whole box of advent tea - a different one for each day!
Where again might one find a box of advent tea?
"However, the internet has yet to see naked pictures of me and I think I'll keep it that way."
Awww...! [SLINKS AWAY DISAPPOINTED]
My toes are visible in the kitten pictures.
never underestimate the awesomeness of central heating. and depending where you live, central air conditioning as well.
Oh yeah. I wouldn't live in LA without air conditioning. Did that as a student - never again!
Hahaha ... after 13 years without central air, I'm posting my A/C units on Freecycle TODAY. Looking forward to seeing the backs of those moldy little bastards.
Your cats are as cute as the white German shepherd and that is saying something, I tell you what.
Also I love the image of your little tootsies in the bubbles in the second picture. Your naked toes are available to the internet.
It's -15 deg F. here right now... I appreciate the joyous rapture over central heating. I really, really do.
They're not the smartest cats I've ever had, but they certainly are the most sweet-natured.
Ach! My vulnerable pink toes are on the internet. The shame!
I read in yesterday's newspaper that a two-week cold spell is due to start on Monday. The timing is making me even more grateful for a relatively mild autumn thus far.
But they are richer for adorable kitten pictures, no?
(What worries me is that there may actually be naked photos of me somewhere on the internets. I was the victim of a burglary a couple of years ago and I didn't password-protect my photo collection on the laptop they stole. I have to hope they just wiped the thing and sold it on, but of course I don't know that for sure.)
Cool pictures! That last looks like a wet cat just waiting to happen!
Thus far, Telstar has avoided accidentally falling into water. He has, however, deliberately and grandiosely leapt into the deep end of our pond.

Also, I am jealous of your central heating - our boiler is incompetent, and can barely keep up with the temperature even when on full blast permanently. Any colder and it won't be enough. Plus, we can't put it on timer, since it makes a screaming noise when it starts which can only be fixed by running the hot tap for a few seconds, meaning the bathroom is baltic in the morning. If I owned the flat, I would have replaced it years ago!
Oh man, that's so annoying. Especially if you're an environmentally conscientious person.
Actually, it's probably better for the environment - it's so crap we just don't bother putting it on half the time (like now - I'm sitting here with the freezing fog outside and my salopettes and many layers on). If it worked properly, we'd probably have it on much more often!
