Q:

I am a regular listener and appreciate your concise and entertaining format! 

On August 28, Leslie was discussing fire safety regarding using citronella torches and candels. I'm sure it was a slip of the tongue, but she mentioned keeping a water bucket nearby in case of a fire when using citronella. Pouring water on a citronella oil fire produces disasterous results and is often the cause of  many deck/outdoor residential fires. 

Perhaps a short mention during an upcoming episode discussing the importance of mounting a $15 fire extinguisher rated ABC (for all types of fires) near a grilling or outdoor area, or at the very least recommend keeping a box of baking soda nearby to extinguish cooking or oil based flames would clear up any confusion for your listeners. 

Keep up the great work!
