Just about everyone stores candles for emergencies however very few people really know how many to store up on. To judge the time it takes for a candle to melt you must consider its diameter as well as the length. A candle which is ¾ of an inch in diameter and 4 inches long will burn for approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes, while one which is 7/8 of an inch but the same length will burn for 5 hours. The two inch diameters will maintain a light for approximately 7 hours per inch. Click here

Review - Kelty Chinook Sleeping Bag

April 13, 2009 - We have a short review on the Kelty Chinook Sleeping Bag. I'm not an arctic mountain climber or anything like that, but I do like to go on extended canoe and camping trips with my wife. We both use the Kelty Chinook sleeping bag (20 degree model) because it's easy to pack, keeps the water out (even when we hit a little whitewater now and again) and keeps us both warm in our tent from spring to fall. The decision was left up to me, and considering myself a frugal man I was after the most bang for my buck. The Chinook has proven to be the perfect sleeping bag because it isn't too hot for mid-summer canoe trips but also keeps us nice and toasty into the early fall season. Click here

Tell me about Salted Fish

April 7, 2009 - "Tell me about Salted Fish" By Joseph Parish. During the 15th and 16th century, there was no such thing as refrigeration or canning so the professional fishermen of the Mediterranean had to preserve their daily catch by means of salting. Although salting was judged the most widespread method, the anglers also preserved their catch with oil or brine, air-drying and smoking. The most common fish used for salting was anchovies, sardines, tuna, eels, herring plus bottarga, which is Italian for tuna eggs. Click here
