Check out this new kick starter for gasifier. Only 5 days left but it looked like something folks here would be interested in

Instead of voting, could we plan one each week for the next several weeks?



I agree. I'd like to see them all

Popcorn pops when steam builds up and it explodes.


Just a quick addition. If you look at your kernels and see any cracks they won't pop as the moisture in the kernel has evaporated. And get your oil hot before adding the popcorn

Thank you. Every bit helps. There are so many things to do it really helps to have guides so you don't forget something

Years ago when my brother was in scouts he taught me to make fire starter. Take a small jar 1/2 full of gas and start putting in Styrofoam. It shrinks down and you keep adding Styrofoam until you have a pudding. It only takes a pea size piece of puddy to start a fire and you use so little that it really isn't an environmental problem.

I also glue them together in the shape of a cake and practice how I want flowers arranged on a cake. That way when the cake is iced it's easy to place the flowers just right

I'm excited, love John Denver
Years ago we built a straw bale addition to our home. We were newlyweds and didn't have much money. It was cheap, sturdy, earth quake resistant and had a r54 insulation factor. There are two types, Nebraska and post and beam. Nebraska is cheaper and sturdier. That is what we built. They call it Nebraska style because that is where it originated. They didn't have wood to build with so they used straw bales which were a waste product. When they had a big earthquake there most of the buildings were knocked down but the straw bale house only got a crack in the stucco. It is also fire resistant. Because it is covered in stucco and no air can get to it, it only smolders. It is easy to construct, but I would recommend help just because after you get to the 3rd or 4th row those bales are heavy to lift. Invite a dozen friends over for the day and you can have the walls up in a day and the roof on the next. If you have everything ready
