that torch I got the other day for about MXN130, that burns a butane/propane mix in MXN35 canisters, just couldn't make quite enough heat for brazing. so today I went out to Home Depot and got a MAPP/Oxy kit for about 10 times as much, MXN1300 or so. but it works. got my first mirror mount done, now to finish attaching the mirror and make some more. solar oven, here we come.

just realized where the rest of my carnitas went yesterday morning. left the back door open when I went upstairs for a shower, and when I came down, a dark shape slowly walked out. the neighborhood feral cats. they don't steal everything that isn't nailed down like the neighbor's dog did, but they'll take every scrap of meat and fat.
