No, not again!

I've always loved opening my windows in the evening and letting in the cool night air but over the last few years it seems people in housing developments think they're out in the woods at a campground. They stink up the whole neighborhood with smoke from who-knows-what? Smokers? Chimineas? I've already walked around town last year trying to figure out where it's coming from.

If you want an outdoor fire, you should go to a local campground and spare the people in their homes from feeling like they're living in a forest fire.

I know I'm not the only one with allergies. This smoke is aggravating my asthma and bronchial problems.

Please have mercy on the people with breathing problems and stop burning wood or whatever in the cramped Quakertown neighborhoods. Please!

Thank you!

Some people love the smell, so itís a matter of opinion. If youíve walked around town trying to figure out where it's coming from, maybe it isnít an outdoor fire. Peopleís chimney can cause it on a calm day.

You have several options.
Walk outside to see if anyone's burning before opening them.
Donít open your windows at all.
See a doctor about your allergies.
Move.

I would love to move to a place where the houses aren't packed together so tightly and away from swamp land. Hopefully, some day!

Do you know how much toxic chemicals there are in plastics, carpets, furniture, paints, cleaners, and a host of other things? No matter where you live, indoor air levels of pollutants can easily be 2-5 times higher than outdoor levels, and sometimes more than 100 times higher.

I wasn't trying to be nasty when I said move. Sometimes that's the only option for someone with severe allergies.

The mosquitoes are really bad in Montana, plus before you get to the mountains there are swampy parts. I'd go to the Pacific Northwest. Washington is nice plus it's named after our first president!

Oregon is nice. You can get far away from anyone. You can be all by yourself. No one will bother you. You will be invisible to the world. No one will know you exist. And we won't have to listen to your incessant Whining. Now GO!

I don't live in a row house, honey. Too close to the neighbors. I like my acreage and my fire pit.

You are the narrow-minded one. You lack such imagination and intelligence that you have to steal my username, "bethwhistler" rather than come up with one of your own.

Fire pits and chimineas ARE allowed in the borough - I checked Quakertown's website. If chicken coops aren't permitted without certain property clearances, fires of any kind (other than a grill for cooking) should also be banned.

I do not live in a row house. There is nothing wrong with a row house, per se. I would just prefer to live in the great outdoors where there is lots of fresh air.

You are an ugly person to type rude things and pose as someone else. I wonder how many other ugly things you post on here using someone else's username? Too bad you have no integrity or strong moral fiber.

Get your own username and leave mine alone creep.

I've been to Oregon. Wouldn't recommend it for an east coast conservative type.

In addition, it's obvious you are not me because you typed "your" instead of "you're." Also, you type "Its" instead of It's" just to name two of your errors. You display a great deal of ignorance when it comes to clear use of English grammar and spelling.

This is not a matter of narrow-mindedness no residents of row houses but about caring for the health and welfare of our neighbors. I think it's possible to sit outside and enjoy the night air without burning things.

The previous post has a typo which should have read "or residents" not "no residents."

Since I brought up the use of English grammar, I thought it appropriate to correct my typing mistake.
