All good composters have a good vent system. You want air to circulate throughout your compost, but you don't want to let bugs in with the air. My barrel already had two holes in the top so I cut two 2" holes in the bottom that lined up with them. I then cut two lengths of 2" PVC pipe long enough to stick out of the barrel about 1 ½" top and bottom and then drilled several ½" holes in both pipes along the length that will be inside the barrel. After inserting the vent pipes in the barrel I then glued the Nibco fittings on the ends. This fitting has a screw-on cap that would have been used as a pressure fitting for a slip joint. Just unscrewed these caps and cut out a piece of screen cloth to fit inside them. Screw the caps on to the pipes then use some putty to fill any gaps between the pipes and the holes you had cut in the barrel. Find a good place set up, place the barrel on its platform and start throwing in those table scraps and grass clippings. It would be a good idea to keep the compost level inside the barrel just below the vent pipes so that rotating the barrel won't be too much of a task.
Acrylic paints are something that I have not gotten into and do not know much about. The advantage is that you do not have to use special thinners. Some modelers use Windex to thin. My experience is mainly with enamels. I have a friend that uses finger nail polish thinned with lacquer thinner on his cars, as he likes the range of colors and fine grain of the metallic/metal flake ones.
Those new to smoking tend to think strictly in terms of smoke rather than smoke content. You need to start thinking of smoke in terms of seasoning like rosemary or garlic. You do not want to over-season your food. The smoke exhausting from the smokers of those new to the art can only be compared to a flaming mattress. That thick, white smoke bellowing from the chimney of your smoker is going to spell disaster for your brisket. Thick, white smoke carries a higher concentrate of creosote than clear, blue smoke. What you want to achieve is a clear, blue smoke.
First of all, you can educate yourself about the alternative methods of providing power to your home during an outage. While purchasing an emergency backup portable generator is what most people think of doing, many people either don't have the $500 to $800 to lay out for that purchase. In addition, storing gasoline may not be an option, especially if you live in the city and have a small lot, or worse yet, if you live in an apartment.
Another thing you will need is a compressor to power your airbrush. Some artists are scared of air compressors because they look complicated and too mechanical. Please don't be scared! Once you have purchased one and tried it out with your new air-brush, I can guarantee you will never want to go back. There are so many things that you can do with air that you cannot do with a regular paint brush. It will open many doors for you.
