Make and use a haybox cooker, 46°

A hay box cooker (Google will find) is basically a well insulated box in which you place a bot of boiling food. The insulation keeps the pot hot for hours and keeps cooking. Think crockpot without a power cord!

This has many advantages:
* Only needs energy to bring the pot to the boil, not to keep it hot.
* Food cannot burn dry. Set it up in the mornign and come home to a hot meal in the evening.
* Fantastic slow slow cooker for rice, stews, legumes, cheaper meat cuts etc. and other budget/enviro friendly meals.

If you want, I can provide a simple diagram.

Yes, please give us a diagram! This is definately something I want to do, we cook on a wood stove and a small propane cooktop and oven. I would love to be able to start something on the stove, then put it in a haybox cooker and leave it the rest of the day.

I bought recently some original paintings from an art store ArtYou.com I am fascinated by the oil artworks with bright colors. It does look like many of the paintings have been done with palette knife. I particularly must say that they are quite unique and impressive.
There are a plenty of young painters who are testing the bounds of art expression to generate unusual materials in the creation of their artworks.

This originality has occurred as artists have searched for materials to fulfill a particular quality of color or texture that is outside the range of more usual materials.
Their choice of media for their art reflects their awareness . They create an amazing diversity of surfaces by using oil and combinations. Depending on the degree of paint and the texture of the canvas the power of paint vary from a transparent wash to a full opaque impasto.

The directness of the application when using different materials allows the painters to develop a composition rapidly in line and color and to focus on the primary task of creating a interesting design.

The great thing about BuildAModule is how well the videos are organized, by far the easiest to use and most approachable website among all of these resources. The only disadvantage when compared to Drupalize.me is that BuildAModule is a newer service that's not quite as established and credible, but the quality of the content is superb.Mobile Apps
