:roll: Candles are great for creating ambiance, but when you are camping - in a tent - battery operated lanterns are probably more practical! :thumbs_up:

Practical a battery lantern may be, but candles are better for romance. :gflower: :k

Wars are one way (albeit unpleasant) of tackling overpopulation.

( :lol: BB)

Dung left behind by elephants is used to manufacture writing paper, I have seen it in the shops in Kruger - they even collect and put it (the dung) in plastic bottles, screw a lid on the bottles and sell it to the tourists

Tourists pay a lot of money for paper made from elephant dung, bearing out the Lancashire proverb "There's brass in muck".

Stationery manufactured from recycled material is good and people appreciate receiving it as a gift
