Primitive Lighting.

I can't see a board where this would fit, so I hope it is okay to post it here.

For most of our lives, my wife & I have lived out bush & off grid. For over 20 years we lived without any electricity. We started off with hurricane lamps, but soon found that these were not practicable. We instead used candles, which we made ourselves, plus rush lights & grease lamps.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less travelled by,
