solar cooker, cheap gas, duct tape

here is a photo of a solar cooker

my rainwater brother-the one that i infected with the
rainwater virus-use a solar cooker similar to this to
cook food
he bought his made of cardboard for $25
its the ones that are sent to 3rd world countries so they
can be used to cook food there
many of those countries have plenty of sunshine
but have no electricity

he uses a dark broiler placed inside a plastic bag
like an oven bag and leaves it out in the sun
eg he cooks soups and beans
the pot gets up to 325 degrees
no electricity is used

the energy from the sun reflects on the food and energizes
the particles in the food which cook it
beans were good
soup was good
wonder if itll cook a good hamburger

i plan on purchasing the cheaper one then get a better one
if it works well for me
think maybe he just infected me

when we visit california we are always amazed at how
expensive gas is there
makes you not want to drive much there

recently here there was a sighting of gas < $3.00
below is a photo of that sign

sure wanted to drive there just to get that cheap gas
but didnt since it was 50 miles away
would have made for a great picture though


its been a while since its been this cheap

its been awhile since ive posted duct tape stuff

so to fight those pesky flies
you know the ones that are to fast for the folded up newspaper
or magazine or new fly swatter
the ones that land on you nose when you try to sleep
how many times has that nose been swatted while sleeping
the ones that wont just go away
dont they just die eventually anyway
think we have super flies at our house

you can hang a strip of duct tape and extend it from something
like a window frame or ceiling
the flies just have to land on that sticky side
then they are done for
try it
