...Just which Useless Tricks any one person will pick up. Tam had never seen Orange-Peel Pryotechnics until today -- I had a tangerine for dessert and wandered into our Data Central squeezing the peel into a lighter flame: Foom! Wooomph! Delightful little bursts of flame, though tangerines don't give you quite the weird curls of fast-dissipating black smoke oranges create.
Tam was chatting on the telephone and stopped for a moment, fascinated by an innocent citrus peel producing tiny fireballs.
Yeah, we make our own fun here at Roseholme Cottage!
