"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    If you want to make something dirt-cheap, make it out of dirt. Preferably dirt that’s locally sourced. image

    With the amount of plastic waste that's generated, we won't be short of fuel with this idea. Sorry @Science24, I can't download anything. Kathmandu seems to be having a communication crisis and the internet and mobile phone networks seem to be at a standstill.

    I thought it would be a word of something else. Wrong turn.

    Apparently plastic is recycled in Cambodia, but I was amazed to hear that glass isn't.

    I guess plastics to chairs are good alternatives as well. :)
