Beautiful Secret #3

Every builder has a dream to make his own house. Nothing quite like seeing your work serve you so well. But everybody has different ideas on how they want it to look. Here's an idea of how I want mine to look.

It's somewhere in the desert. You'll drive out to the address and see nothing but an elevator.

And then down you go in the elevator to my abode. All underground. I imagine it would save quite a lot of cooling expenses. Who knows, maybe there'll even be a sunlight.

Beautiful Secret #2

I want to make a thermal lance out of spaghetti and aluminum foil.

Beautiful Secret #1

I saw a video, which challenged me to think of a new beautiful secret every day.

I'd like to take up that challenge.

I would love to build a furnace. Or maybe a smelter. Something that could be so concentratingly hot to melt whatever I want. It would be part underground, with a billowing chimney rising from it. Of course it would be made of brink and mortar, done with my own hands. I don't know how to, nor do I have the funds to, but if I ever get the latter, I am sure I can understand the prior. Ideally, it would have a place for me to sit near by it. Like a small brick amphitheater for my toosh.
