    Post Ah...that SWEET smell! You know what I mean!

    Anyone involved with wildland firefighting knows that initial rush....when you smell the smoke and say to yourself.."that's XXX burning" or "that's YYY burning." I thought of that while reading this news. THEY call it unhealthy. WE call it NECTAR!

    FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Regional air quality regulators extended
    an advisory health warning in Fresno until Thursday after smoke
    from a woodpile fire caused unhealthy breathing conditions.
    "At this point, it isn't as bad as it was earlier in the week,
    but it's unhealthy," said Janis B. Parker, a spokeswoman at the
    San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District.
    Children in the Fresno Unified School District were kept indoors
    Tuesday and Wednesday. School officials also canceled outdoor
    sports, including baseball and track practice, which recently
    started. Soccer season also is now underway.
    "When you can smell or taste the smoke in the air, you know
    it's bad," Fresno Unified spokeswoman Jill Marmolejo said.
    Fresno Fire Chief Joel Aranaz said firefighters were still
    trying to determine how to douse the fire buried in about a
    30-foot-high pile of wood and other debris.
    The fire started Saturday on a 3-acre plot owned by Archie
    Crippen Excavation, which collects wood from demolished homes to
    sell it for biofuel to power plants.
    Air officials have issued a notice of violation to the company
    for improper handling of the material.
    Business owners did not return a call for comment.
