From a Sarajevo War Survivor: Experiencing horrible things that can happen in a war - death of parents and friends, hunger and malnutrition, endless freezing cold, fear, sniper attacks. 1. $3 Emergency Solar-Powered Radio Made With an Altoids Tin Joshua Zimmerman has a great project up on Instructables for turning an Altoids tin into a compact solar radio. All said, the entire project cost a whole $3. It seems like a project coming at a time when everyone is ultra aware of emergency situations, so it is both a fun and practical weekend tinkering project. It even comes complete with plug-in headphones. Joshua writes, "In honor of all my good friends still over in Japan I've decided to create an Instructable for a $3 Emergency Solar Radio. And he's right. With a project time of just under an hour, it's ideal for testing out your DIY skills on a weekend. Joshua lists parts and tools as:an FM Radio, two Solar Garden Lights, 1 Diode ($1 for 100 of them online, or take one out of any random junk pile), and a few basic tools like a soldering iron, drill, some wire and wire strippers, a headset or the speakers from a set of earbuds, and of course, the Altoids tin.

Baltimore’s Finest: The Sequel. So, one blog and some 3 dozen comments later, Baltimore’s finest cookie—the Berger Cookie—has resurfaced in a new incarnation. Like the REAL Berger cookie (can you pick it out in the photo above?), our new version is smaller, and spread with frosting that’s closer to the original and heaped even higher. This is my final take on these cookies—I promise! First, I want to thank reader Ann Dahne for sending me two packages of real Baltimore Berger Cookies. I broke them into little bits, and the King Arthur Web group—Halley, Jim, Tracy, Janet, and I—all taste-tested. I started by reducing the size of the cookies to about 2 1/4”. To make the perfect-size cookies, I used a teaspoon cookie scoop… …and flattened the cookies to about 1 1/2” across. The new icing adds vanilla and confectioners’ sugar; subtracts butter; and substitutes chocolate chips for the unsweetened chocolate in the original. Yes, it’s a messy process. See the “real” Berger Cookie here? Which is which?
