  • a short electromagnetic wave (longer than infrared but shorter than radio waves); used for radar and microwave ovens and for transmitting telephone, facsimile, video and data
  • An electromagnetic wave with a wavelength in the range 0.001–0.3 m, shorter than that of a normal radio wave but longer than those of infrared radiation. Microwaves are used in radar, in communications, and for heating in microwave ovens and in various industrial processes
  • kitchen appliance that cooks food by passing an electromagnetic wave through it; heat results from the absorption of energy by the water molecules in the food


  • (Ovens) The small dome-shaped adobe ovens are used just as the old Dutch ovens of Pennsylvania were used. A fire is built in the oven and when it becomes sufficiently hot the coals are all raked out and the bread put in to bake in the heat.

Insanitarium Art Gallery

Insanitarium Art Gallery
Out of all of the abandoned structures that we’ve found while exploring Manitoba, this one’s got to be the most intriguing and unusual so far.

Right out of a sci-fi B movie, in the middle of nowhere, there’s this unconventional school building that my friend Brad has dubbed the "Insanitarium Art Gallery". Obviously abandoned, it was boarded up a long time ago and is now inhabited by birds and their droppings. There’s an alphabet hanging on steel cables over the absent floor (some sort of "installation"), a dead microwave oven resting on the mushy surface below, a couple carcasses, and a few paintings on the walls.

You can tell that the curator (or anybody else, for that matter) hasn’t been there in quite a while.

The most incredible thing? The place reeks of fresh oil paint.

I’m still trying to figure this place out.

(Video recorded with my phone, so please forgive the quality.)

work on oven continues. Here we are fitting front counter to front of oven. This slab is sandstone and roughly 60 (2m) inches end to end and 15inches (37cm) deep(front to back) and 2 & 1/2 inches (7cm) thick. It weighs at least a couple of hundred pounds (100kg). (was like getting a work- out, without having to go to the gym- moving it about!). Center red marked rectangle has been cut clean (easier to cut than the other stone!) to fit over the ash drop. Surface is flush w/ floor of oven (firebrick).
