My fhather and his brothers made, long time ago, charcoal. But they covered de wood with earth o soil. And in Spain there are similar constructions for diferents uses in other time. I think they are very beautiful.

Norrel, all the best barbecue chefs build their own kilns, and make their own charcoal. Of course, this makes dinner a bit late, but these are the sacrifices one makes in the interest of authenticity.

Larry, first you drag swamp monsters out, now it's giant hornets. You need to quit being such an apocalyptic scourge. : D

Hello, ordiso62. Thank you very much for your visit and sharing some of your family history. I was going to add that, before kilns, one way to make charcoal was the pit method, but I didn't think that folk's patience would hold out. I salute your family for the hard work they did in this process.

they rounded up the giant hornets and they have them now down at Area 51. Fools let a breeding pair of swamp monsters escape, however. it was only a matter of time.

Very good story, Larry. You should make a compendum, and get it published. Or take Margot's advice...

This must be the famous "Beehive House", one of the main tourist attractions in Salt Lake City!

Very similar, Norrel. Things got rather warm in both places.

He's making that up n1w, he's been stuck on a picture of English Bay for four days.

No beehives on English Bay, that's for sure. They let their hair down over there.
