Well, in 'merica we have things called sidewalks, paved roads, and door mats =) (kidding). Also, in a lot of places, we don't have a lot of wet weather (California). so, dirt and mud on floors isn't a problem (here the worst stuff you can track in is sand). Also, if you're vigilant about cleaning the carpets it's not a problem. ________________________________________________ It's worth the risk of burning, to have a second chance...
