I guess I bought book five in the Slow Burn series by Bobby Adair just to see what happens next. Not because I love the books. They aren’t horrible. They are actually good. My biggest gripe is that the books spend too much time on one scene. Six pages describing a drift/float to the river is just too long. I found myself skimming, waiting for something to happen.
This article http://www.chow.com/food-news/55536/how-to-brew-small-batch-beer-in-your-kitchen/2 is the exact recipe/set up I used to get started with home made / craft beer brewing!
My first one gallon batch was delicious (probably because I made it myself and refuse to believe other wise) and I now have upgraded to a three gallon / all grain/fullboil set up.
Making this candle was super simple. Diddling around at Wal-Mart- (my favorite place to find free, freak like entertainment and poorly behaved babies, baby daddy and shabbily dressed trailer park kin) I saw the Crisco display and was enticed…
Using one can of Crisco Veg Shortening $2.37 – during the apocalypse when cash has no value and Wally World is temporarily out of business you can use rendered fat/lard in lieu of the Crisco.
One lamp wick .99 – you can cut this in half and have two wicks.
some red neck ingenuity
a steak knife from my kitchen -use the steak knife to stab the wick down into the veg shortening
and a few drops of kerosene (not totally necessary) to prime the wick –
I’m a bit eclectic in my hair brain schemes. I am a truck driver, Survivalist Enthusiast and my goal is to live off grid in the middle of a small city. I love to read, write and travel. That’s how I ended up being a Truck Driver. See the country. Drive the big Rig! I fell for the LIE… Don’t do it… for too long anyway.
Get as many free Kindle ebooks -> five star books as possible. I love reading post-apocalypse Zombie/Virus/Epidemic books as well as Survivalist and Homesteading guides/manuals.
Use very little electricity.
Work for others as little as possible while squeaking by.
Be self sufficient and have the option to live in my small apartment for the cost of rent and food.
