What's Hot This WInter

You heard it here first: "hobo chic" is the latest trend in outdoor decor. Be the first on your block to get your hands on one of these stylish 55 gallon steel drums. The rusted, burnt-paint finish blends with your landscape, be it asphalt driveway, or muddy, rutted "lawn", or snow-covered ice rink. It's practical, too: light a fire in there (stand back -- way back -- the flames have been known to shoot up 12 feet into the air) & you'll have outdoor heat for the skaters and contractors alike.

But that's not all... This stunning outdoor accessory will also spark intellectual curiosity! Observe what happens when the heat from your barrel o' fire starts to melt the surrounding permafrost. Next time the kids are off from school due to a snow day, send them outside to study these jagged ice formations... and tell 'em they can't come inside until they have figured out this shark-tooth phenomenon. Talk about motivated learners!
