Can You Cook over and open fire

I have heard it so many times “Ill Build and fire and cook dinner” Have you ever cooked over and open fire? I would guess that the consistency and simplicity of heat control of your modern Gas or Electric Stove has provide you with a false sense of confidence. I bet that if you asked 100 people on the street have you ever cooked on an open fire.  95 or better would say no. If you asked the Same 100 people do you think you can cook your dinner on an open fire 100 of them would say yes. To be honest I would bet that most of them would be able to eat something. But there is and art to cooking over an open fire. You can’t just turn the heat up and down with the flip of a knob. True campfire cooks know that you have to maintain and tend the fire, bank the coals know when it is cool enough so you can cook. That is right you just can’t build a roaring fire and stick your pan of hamburgers over the flames. You will have burnt outside and raw insides and ruined food and hungry bellies. Continue reading

Wonder By Frinthy

Wonder

To a child the world is nothing but wonder, from the break of day to the last glimmer of the setting sun. Wonder is in the sparkle in every moment. The red flowers, the glint of dew on the bushes, the buzz of the honey bee as it meanders from flower to flower. Wonder, excitement, overwhelming exuberance in the new, the unknown, to the child the world is wonder. Where does that wonder go? Why does it seem to only visit from time to time? After being such a close and constant companion as a child. Overwhelming wonder must fade with learning and wisdom. Who is truly wise the child or the person searching for wonder.

Personal responsibility

What is personal responsibility? There are many thoughts than exist, a quick search of the web brings you to Wikipedia and its definition or outline of personal responsibility.

Personal responsibility is the idea that human beings choose, instigate, or otherwise cause their own actions. A corollary idea is that because we cause our actions, we can be held morally accountable or legally liable. Personal responsibility can be contrasted to the idea that human actions are caused by conditions beyond the agent’s control. Since the late 19th-century, personal responsibility has become increasingly associated with political conservatism and libertarianism. More recently, personal responsibility has been associated with the reform of social welfare programs (e.g. in the Personal Responsibility and Welfare Reform Act of 1996). The earliest known English use of the phrase is by Massachusetts Rep. Nathaniel Gorham at the U.S. Constitutional Convention on July 18, 1787. “

There are several more thoughts on personal responsibility with the linked Quote above   if you want to continue reading. Continue reading
