For a bonus point, which one applies to ME !


The denatured alcohol could also apply if you have a spirit lamp on the kitchen table.


Indeed, or in my case not a spirit lamp which despite the name is a heat source, not a light, but a Tilley lamp.
These burn paraffin but need meths/denatured alcohol for starting, Tilley radiators ditto.

Same here but all scrap metal goes to the local sports association (called the GAA). They’ve been raising funds using scrap for years. I have no interest in sport but a great deal in re-use.

Well funny or not a lot of people are choosing Vermont over their current location. You could look at Vermont as the USA's largest gated community with a gate you can't see.
