First-rate fire starters

  • Pack sawdust into paper muffin cups, above, or a cardboard egg carton.
  • Melt paraffin wax in a double boiler, pour over the sawdust and allow to cool.
  • Slow-burning when lit, these hotcakes make great starters for a fireplace or campfire.

  3. First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do tawke pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Thanks!
