Building a straw hut part one

Observe direction the wind is blowing. Plan to build your straw hut so that the back faces the direction the wind blows.
Step 2

Cut two branches that are more than six feet long with your ax or saw. Branches that have notches at the top work best. These are the uprights for your straw hut.
Step 3

Sharpen the bottom of the branches with your saw or ax, then drive the pointed ends of the branches into the ground so they are firmly in place.Step 4

Use a third branch as a ridge pole, and place it in the notched ends of the embedded uprights. The ridge pole is the top horizontal part of the roof. Think of it as the straw hut's spine.Step 5

Make the back wall of the straw hut out of cut branches. Lean them against the ridge pole and lay lighter branches across the leaning branches. Lash them into place with vines.Step 6

Trim straw into lengths several feet long, and weave them into the branches until you create a solid wall that will protect you against the wind. If you are building your hut in a where it's hot, add even more straw to the wall. The thicker the walls, the cooler you will be inside your hut.

TRUMP FOR PRESIDENCY!! 2017

I personally am proud of our new president,"Donald Trump", despite the controversial subject matter at hand he has previously thought through some of the tough decisions at hand presently and signed and sealed the decision that all good people would want.
There seems to be a lot of bickering about some issues that remain unresolved and he was quick to resolve them. In his intelligence made the decision that overall would end civil liabilities and put back to work USA .
Making America Great again is not an easy task while he can give the orders to move ahead, the real true work lays in the hands of citizens. How much of your time and energy are you willing to put into "making America great again", is all I'm asking?
This is what you voted for, if you voted.
When there is no work and no money, the work there is becomes very grueling and tedious. Working money sometimes is just as tedious, and you gotta be there to answer the call, step up or step down, your stil…

Important Blackfoot Mythological Figures
Old Man (also known by his Blackfoot name, Naapi, or spelling variants such as Napi, Nape, Napa, Napiw, Napioa, Na-pe, Na'pi, Na'pe, or Old-Man.) Naapi is the benevolent culture hero of the Blackfoot tribe (sometimes referred to as a "transformer" by folklorists.) He is a trickster, a troublemaker, and sometimes a foolish person, but he is also responsible for the shaping of the world the Blackfeet live in and frequently helps the people. He is assisted in these tasks by his wife, Old Woman or Old Lady (Kipitaki or Kipitaakii in Blackfoot). In some Blackfoot Indian legends both Old Man and Old Woman are associated with coyotes (some Blackfoot storytellers even call them "Old Man Coyote" and "Old Lady Coyote,…

Dangers of smoking and taking marijuana candy alternatives

I was a wife of a man who said, periodically that "marijuana", was safer than even alcohol or smoking cigarettes. That it was even safer to smoke marijuana joints than drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes and the hidden dangers of getting cancer.This was in the eighties not the the year 2000 and above.

Well, I suppose that it was the lessor of the evils of this world,(Not for me). However; We then realized the hard way the real dangers when Smoking and getting high on marijuana candy and high potency marijuana. How some people would even prefer not driving at all as opposed to loosing the right to smoke marijuana medicinally or not.

The additives that raised the potency, was then recipe'd into a candy that mimicked other famous candy labels.
Which took me back in time to a mass murderer in Texas Known AKA Candy man, or Dean Corell, and his conspirators.
Which I always am stumped by seems there are really only three that impact Texans lives and so children's lives.…
