[...] > Now if we could find some transparent fleece... Years back I lived in an old house subdivided into apartments. If the building's single thermostat got turned up enough that my apartment was warm, the upstairs tenants sweltered, and the elderly boiler got cranky. After a couple of winters of conventional caulking and weatherstripping, without much impact on the temperature, I hung a clear shower curtain (with penguins on it) in the doorway between the old glassed-in porch and the second room where the radiator was. Suddenly it was snug and warm. A plastic curtain wouldn't survive kids as well as polar fleece, but otherwise I heartily recommend the solution.
