No surprise to anyone that we still have had no rain and the heat is still with us. There maybe an upside to the heat though-start using the sun to cook outside. Wrap your food in foil, lay it on a rock and let the sun cook it, sure would save heating up the house and at the same time be going green. Just be sure and check it often to keep it from over cooking said, "with tongue in check."
The president keeps wanting everyone to use something other than fossil fuel, so that sounds like a good thing and it would make the companies that make foil happy. Besides it just might open up some new jobs if the demand for foil increased, the manufacturing company would have to hire more
people. A warning-you must use a sun-screen to keep yourself from burning while going out to check the food. If enough people started using more sun-screen, the possibilities are endless. Think about it! It could have a domino effect.
Something you always wanted to know, but wouldn’t ask— Aluminum foil, also uses less energy during both manufacture and distribution. Within plant scrap being recycled. Recycled aluminum including cans and foil account for more than 30 percent of the industry’s yearly supply of metal. This number has been increasing and is expected to continue. In addition, processes used during the manufacture are being improved to reduce air pollution and hazardous waste.
