We keep being told that animal fat is dangerously unhealthy and that plant oils are healthy. We have found that the fat we separated out from our Thanksgiving turkey dinner did not solidify in the refrigerator. We did get some mushy granules, but it poured easily. It certainly did not solidify any granules at all at room temperature (about 65º).
We did have to heat it until all the bits were crunchy to get rid of the smell, so it is golden brown. Next step is to see how well it will burn in an oil lamp, of which we have many.
I have not used this as a blog but more to see how it would work for keeping records.
Clearly, it does not seem to work well for that.
The purpose of a blog is to be read by others.
That would be why I do not think of myself as having a blog.
Choose paper that is easy to fold.
Fold in half twice.
Fold a third time so that two adjacent sides are together in order for the point to be the center of the circle.
Clip a curve on either corner as long as it is not the center point.
Unfold the paper and use it as the pattern for something like card stock that is sturdy; elastic would be better.
Cut out to the pattern, including around the slits.
Glue the dull side of aluminum foil to the card stock or equivalent.
Tape the slit sections together.
Use a piece of white paper to make sure there is a focal point.
Exactness does not seem to matter!
I know this probably belongs somewhere else like Instructables, but I will put it there later!
Since Salt Lake and the Dead Sea are not conducive to life, then saline solution is antibiotic and reducing saline opens the door to disease.
Easy to construct parabolic form. All that is left is to form the parabolic dish over the form.
“Non-trivial” for the construction-challenged and craft-challenged.
