Congratulations Everyone!
Just a few facts about Buffalo or Cow Chips:
(Just in case you didn't get your fill from the photo!)
They burn very hot!
They have to be dry . . . thank heavens for that!
They are also known as "Meadow Muffins" or
"Nik Nik" by the indians.
I'm not even going to mention what the
English name for this wonderful topic is!
Cow dung is also used to line the floor and walls of buildings
owing to its insect repellent properties for some types of insects
(not flies or dung beetles).
 In central Africa, Maasai
villages have burned cow dung inside to repel mosquitos.
In cold places,
cow dung is used to line the walls of rustic houses
as a cheap thermal insulator.
Buffalo and Cow Chips were also used for throwing contests.
Who would have thought?!?
They used them the same way we use charcoal now,
and they were easy to find!
This whole subject is just busting me up . . .
I had no idea I could be so easily entertained!
Hopefully this is a great incentive for YOU
to store a few extra bags of charcoal!
By the way . . .
Is the Buffalo Chip holder in the picture,
called a "Wheel Barrel" or a "Wheel Barrow?"
Just wondering.  I spelled it both ways and was ok with either one!
Thanks for ALL of your comments!
My phone line hasn't been fixed yet, but they are supposed to be doing that
TODAY!
I will be posting the PDF files for yesterday as well as a
Lunch Bag Meal.
Thanks for being so patient!
I've always been BLESSED,
but never very LUCKY!
