How Not To Start A Fire

There is nothing like enjoying a fire in the fire pit surrounded by friends. Unlike the video below, please follow a few basic safety rules:

  • The fire pit should be at least ten feet away from combustible material such as a deck or other structures
  • Avoid windy conditions
  • Do not burn on burn-ban days
  • Only burn seasoned firewood – no household trash or brush
  • Keep a garden hose or water supply close by
  • Start your fire small with a store bought fire starter or crumbled piece of paper, then add small pieces of wood

Songs About Beer

I don’t normally listen to songs just because they are about beer, but it is an appropriate topic for this blog.  When I searched my iPod, I found more songs about beer than I would have ever guessed.

A few on my list includes:

Pretty Good at Drinkin’ BeerBilly Currington
I Like Beer Tom T. Hall
Beer for My Horses – Toby Keith
Beers Ago – Toby Keith
Beer in Mexico – Kenny Chesney
Keg in the Closet – Kenny Chesney
Beer on the Table – Josh Thompson
In Heaven There Is No BeerSoggy Bottom Boys
Beer Thirty – Brooks & Dunn
Beer – Psychostick
Pop-a-Top – Alan Jackson
Beer with Jesus – Thomas Rhett

I have a few others that have beer in the content but not in the title, such as:

Dirt Road AnthemJason Aldean
I Love this Bar – Toby Keith
All My Rowdy Friends are Coming Over Tonight – Hank Williams, Jr.

My favorite of both categories is Billy Currington’s People are Crazy with the line God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy.

I do like to have music playing on the veranda.  Of course, then no one is happy with my shuffling song list. So I have spent some time developing different playlists that will keep everyone happy.  Another option I use is Pandora with a playlist called Classic Rock BBQ.

Whatever is playing on the veranda, it is heard through my Bose Soundlink speaker that I received as a gift. This Bluetooth-wireless speaker delivers incredible sound. It is lightweight, portable, and simple to use with my iPod or iPad.  The best part is that because it’s wireless, you do not have to have your device hooked up to the speakers, but instead use the Bluetooth to play music through the speakers from wherever you are in the house.

I suggest checking out some of those songs- you might find one that you want to add to your own veranda playlist.  So, whether you listen to songs about beer, or country music, or classic rock, nothing sets the mood like music playing in the background.
