Sauna! Bring on the sauna! Full Finnish please, wet sauna, none of this 'dry sauna' stuff!
But a proper sauna is dry!
Oh goodness no! Bless my Finnish cousins, a proper sauna always has an option to throw water on the hot rocks and drive the temperature upwards!
The Finns invented the sauna, and they should know. A dry sauna is ok, but once you've felt the rush that comes when from pouring a cup or two of water over the heating rocks, you'll never find a dry sauna completely satisfactory ever again.
In Finland, every home has a sauna, and most apartments and condos do too.
Ok, we were using different meanings for wet and dry. Agreed about the rocks to throw water on. But a sauna is different from a steam room!
(When my great grandparents homesteaded up near Sudbury the first thing they built was the sauna -- and my aunt still makes regular use of it, still lit at night only by the oil lamp in the changing area, and the circular thermometer that faded into unreadability decades ago so I only no my sauna temperatures by what "o'clock" position the needle is in.)
Absolutely. A sauna is definitely not a steam room. For one thing, saunas almost never grow mold, while steam rooms suffer from mold (to which I am allergic, so I avoid). And a sauna, with the water on the heating rocks, achieves temperatures, safely, that a steam room could never touch.
Even the Finnish cousins' summer cottages had saunas - no showers, no bathtubs, but a sauna by the dock on the lake!
Were your great-grandparents Finnish, Tad? Or from one of the surrounding countries, like Karelia or Sweden or Estonia?
Yes, Finnish (well, I think they were from Karelia,long since siezed by Russia, but they were Finns (as were many of the families settled nearby)

Hey everyone, been a while... so long I somehow got blonder :happy:
Woah, have you dyed it or is it natural? :O
I'm bleach blonde now, haha.

Just got back from a trip to Arizona and had a great time
Beeen awhile since I posted a pic here. Here's a couple of shots dressed up for a wedding I attended last month. I had to put up one sans jacket to show off the nice spring colored braces!
Looking sharp, Leo
You clean up nice for a Texan
Thanks! We don’t always wear chaps and stay covered in crude oil and cow s—t down here!
That is a good look.
Thanks. I had a really stylish older sales lady help steer me away from the standard boring navy jacket khaki slacks look.
