Hmm well it's always good to have something to look at so yeah i do:-))
Just look at the fire as you position your poker. Once there check out the mantle piece to ensure that you're poking is effective.
Not without hitting my head.
Looking makes me want to poke the fire....
No PEACE in that! Poke the fire and forget the mantle or you may get burned. Keep your eyes on the fire and a short distance from it because sparks will fly if the fire is too high.
The shred of doubt.
I must be missing something. I don't understand what you are asking.
Always, why would you not want to look deep
No but I hold on to it :-) x
