Puzzle Books, Magazines, Cat Food and Cooking with Wood

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 9:02 pm

Found an entire box last night of brand new puzzle books and magazines. Those will go to my relative who’s in a nursing home. The rest of the staff will get what my relative doesn’t want.

4 cans of cat food thrown out. My cats loved the food. It was gourmet cat food.

2 containers of lip balm.

A while back someone gave my husband this charcoal griller. We put it together yesterday. Took about an hour. You can entirely cook from wood in this one. Made 2 hamburgers tonight and they were good. You could taste the wood fire in the burgers.

It’s really important to be self reliant. Cooking with wood is one way. If you know how to cook with wood you won’t fall apart or starve if you have no power.



  1. Nice of them to leave the magazines in a box. You hang your clothes out to dry? I’d like to do similarly. My neighbors wouldn’t allow that.

  2. Why is that Ryu? Is it because you’re in a gated community? I really hate those condo busy bodies.

    You could get one of those clothing racks (the small ones you get in the stores) and hang up your clothes on a hanger.

  3. You’ve got it. Can’t have anything visible that might decrease resale value or curb appeal. Really it seems to be an excuse to get some payback if you irritiate a neighbor in some way. Kind of like the leeway police have in interpreting the law.

    I do it sometimes when they are gone and when I won’t be narced on. We’ve got the perfect climate for it. I think clothes would dry faster in the sun than in the dryer.

  4. You need to do the ice cube spell on your neighbors. Google it.
