Missed Opportunity

Boy Did we blow it, Yesterday at around 4:00pm there was a train derailment less than ½ mile from our house.My first instinct was to grab the cameras and run to snap a few photos (though my dear hubby was a little more cautious).But we were almost instantly told to evacuate.So we jumped in the motor home and headed to the state park for the night.Today theyevacuateda few people a little closer to the site but we were allowed to come home.

Solar Cooking

We just bought two solar ovens, and we love then.In one good really sunny day we can cook enough meals for our family of 10 for three days and them we make three gallons of tea as well.So now we only cook every third day if the weather is SUNNY.This got me to thinking about posting some photos of our ovens and meals cooking.
