Kenneth is a rural citizen of Hamilton, Ala., and has begun to observe life and certain things and people helping him to write about them.

In The Year of 1975

June to be exact, I married my wife and we set-out to make our marriage work even it meant learning to get by with little or nothing. This is not a sob story, but the truth. My wife and I were in our early 20’s, in love, and we thought that our world was bright.

We searched for our first place to live and found a place that was located in a local housing project. The monthly rent was fine and the food price was okay, so with my car payment and a few small bills, we tried our best to make things work and if that meant not having a TV, then we would go without one. But knowing that all men who love sports, love football on the weekends, so my dad helped me to find just the right TV and there we were. And to tell you about our heating in the project apartment truthfully, a good deal. The heat was thermostat-controlled and it was never too hot or too cold for us to live. We thought that we were off to a great start.

As The Years Went by Soon

our family was going to be three instead of two, due to us being pregnant with our only child and we were happy as one can be. I was without words as all dads are, and I could not wait until our baby was born. So was my wife. And my family doctor took great care of her and the baby, but he had her sent to Birmingham to see a specialist thanks to Toxema Poisoning which meant, any child being born after our first child was running the risk to be born still dead and my wife’s life would be at risk. But we prayed and went on trusting our Maker and made things work.

The day came when my wife went to do some house shopping which meant that she and I were weary of this project apartment with little or no privacy—with gang members, drug dealers, and violent people who were hanging-out sitting on hoods of cars near other apartments. This place was so miserable that our own police force hardly drove by to check to see what was going on.

But my wife scored with this old, antique frame house that was built in the late 1950’s, and amazingly, the house was okay to live in, but mind you, it did have problems: no insulation inside the walls or ceiling and the winter winds were so cold that we had to place strips of plastic over the inside and outside of the windows to keep the winds out of the house. But we knew that this was not the worst place to live, but we only had two heating sources: Butane gas that was kept in a big tank near our backyard and a wood heater in our kitchen. That was it.

When we ate in our kitchen, I had to haul enough wood inside to keep a fire in the heater and then we could eat with a moderate-amount of comfort, but we both knew that we would soon have to do something as soon as our baby was born.

To say that this space heater is good, would be to say that Van Gogh was a good painter. No. You can safe and afford this Electric Space Heater. My family and I bought one like this one and let me tell you. We were never cold in our home.

I Can Speak With Experience

With this andily Space Heater,

Cold winter weather is no obstacle with this space heater. This Electric Heater for both Home and Office is a Ceramic Small Heater with adjustable thermostat 750W/1500W

Look at These Features:

  • Small Heater: 6.2" X 4.74" x 8.3" . Manual controls. Fully Assembled. Carrying handle for easy transport. Adjustable thermostat for comfortable warmth.

  • Three Modes with Fan: 1.High Heat (1500-watt), 2. Low Heat(750-watt ), 3. Fan Only. Power indicator light lets you know when it’s plugged in. You are assured that Safety is first.

  • Heater has Ceramic Elements: Ceramic space heaters--fast to heat, produce abundant heat without open coils, and are long lasting

  • Space Heater with Thermostat: system can be adjusted according to the thermostat setting let your room remain at a comfortable temperature.This heater can be used in small area (such as warming your feet),meanwhile warms up your surroundings

  • And FOR SAFETY: Automatic overheat system that shuts the unit off when the parts of the heater overheat. TIP-OVER SWITCH will shut off when tipped forward or backward/

  • Power indicate light can lets you know at a glance that it’s plugged in. ETL certified

near as my wife and I talked about getting another, better heating source and we decided on a kerosene heater—the rage of what the stores were selling for people without proper heating. We did buy the kerosene heater and had problems right away. The wick or cloth that kept the kerosene wet and the flame could be burning to produce heat was always going out and one of us had to get out of bed and re-start the heater and friends, this got old. And the kerosene heater did not have a safety feature that made it possible for the fire to go out in order to keep us warm. That in itself spelled danger due to our baby coming soon and we wanted to do whatever we could to help make her life better and safer.

We felt it necessary to shop for an Electric Space Heater such as the ones on this piece because it was small enough to produce heat for a small or big room of the home or the office. Both models of these electric heaters do the work and they last. These heaters are NOT the electric heaters that my wife and I used to have to use, but these two are well-manufactured to the extent that they are so well-tested from the factory that the heaters take a lot more abuse that a family will in a lifetime. These heaters are that good to own and use as an efficient way to cut back on one’s electric heat pump, so it makes good sense and good CENTS to invest in Electric Space Heaters like these.

Honestly, Those Cold Years Taught us

something and it stayed with us. That old adage: "you get what you pay for," which we did get little of nothing when we bought our kerosene heater. Speaking years later, we found that it was dangerous, accidental-prone and not a money-saving purchase.

When my wife and I invested in an Electric Space Heater, the modern heaters that were completely redesigned with safety in mind, plus a heater what was productive and so affordable as well.

The day when we invested in an Electric Space Heater is when our home (the one we had built when we left that old shanty-of-a-house) we started enjoying those winter days and nights and we did not have to worry about those dangerous fumes that emitted from a kerosene heater and were not built as well as the Electric Space Heaters here today.
