Not me
Guilt is concerned with the past. Worry is concerned about the future. Contentment enjoys the present.

I remember in my, "old" Girl Scout days, how we made portable stoves. We would use a juice can and use a bottle opener to punch holes around the top (open end) then place it over a tuna can that had tightly wound up corrugated cardboard place in it. We then poured melted paraffin over the cardboard. We would then light the cardboard/paraffin. This would be our heat source. Next we would place the juice can over the tuna can. The top of the juice can would be our cooking surface. Talk about a smoky mess!! This new device looks like a bit of heaven. Besides, there's not juice cans anymore (I know the industrial sized cans are out there); plus the tuna cans are not the same quality they were back then. I think we fried bacon on the thing and tried to cook an egg. Of course, this was quite some time ago. I don't think the things tasted very good either. Wow, I hadn't thought about that in ??? years. Thank you, Stanley for the walk down memory lane! :unsure:

That's the "Hobo Stove" you made. We still make those in Boy Scouts today.
Breakfast: first cook your bacon... then cut the center out of a slice of bread and place it on the stove. Now crack the egg and pour it in the hole in the bread... Kids love to do this.

Thank you for the provision of the proper name. We called the egg in the center of the bread "hole in the eye". Those were good as well!
