    Oils Well Or The Short Ramblings On The History Of Llghting.

    I use oil lighting all the time. Electrickery is fine, 3 phase theory positively sexy, r @ angle theta and all that. But there is something warm and intimate, dark and deep, lonely and sentinel piercing the dark in the semi luscent cast from a paraffin lamp. A friend who was...

    During A Power Outage.

    It's the perfect time to read, but sometimes a flashlight isn't handy. So that makes it hard but... sometimes you just can't put the book down. Candle light is the next best option.

    Last Winter

    It's extremely hard. Can't see the words very well. I was better off using a flashlight, which i switched to since I couldn't see. That was last winter. We had a power outtage.
