Roof started to smolder yesterday after I added some unknown wood from an old pallet to the wood stove. It burned hotter than anything I can remember ever putting in there, and even the twin-wall stove pipe wasn't sufficient to keep the heat away from the surrounding papercrete. Luckily I never really repaired it after the last mishap, and I was able to douse it with a few gallons of water.

Trying whole-wheat flour instead of baking soda in my underarm guards, after realizing how well the stuff works as a dry shampoo. If it lasts a week, I'll use it exclusively and stop buying baking soda.
