The coolie hat chimney cap I built for my PROPANE TANK WOOD STOVE lasted all of two years.

Wire clamp tool
Yea you can use hose clamps but that means you have to have the right size at hand. And those are quite bulky so they snag on stuff. There is a slicker way to do the job .

Giant Puffball mushroom
Found in my front yard yesterday
All true puffballs are considered edible when immature, but can cause digestive upset if the spores have begun to form, as indicated by the color of the flesh being not pure white (first yellow, then brown). Immature gilled species still contained within their universal veil can be look alikes for puffballs. To distinguish puffballs from poisonous fungi, they must be cut open; edible puffballs will have a solid white interior. Some similar mushrooms have the white interior (or yellowish) but also have the silhouette of a cap-type mushroom on the interior when cut open. These are young cap-type mushrooms and may be poisonous.
