You can grow grass and flowers by applying bone meal on grass blocks. This is useful if you're on an older part of the map without grass and want to add some.

It's also VERY useful if you want flowers for dye. It doesn't generate too many flowers, but you get a few from time to time.

You can mix the dyes from the red and yellow flowers, squid ink, Cacti, and lapis lazuli, with bone meal to get lighter color dyes and can also mix other dyes together to get various other colors, like your orange, or purple.

It is really cool and then you can go out and dye sheep and change their colors for different color wool.

Tip
Fire (ie a block of netherack on fire) burns/sets fire to anything 2 blocks above the flames (lost a house this way lol)

Remember wood burns but stone doesn't

I'd have thought that one a bit obvious :P

A lot of people have lost houses trying to set up a lovely decorative fireplace (you also have to take diagonals into account)... it's best to have 2-3 blocks in all directions of something non-flammable.

(and just ask Bazz about the flammable properties of lava )

Having trouble sleeping in multi-player because everyone-else is too busy during the night to rest? Well, if everyone-else is in the Nether, then you can sleep in the normal world without a problem. Night will become day and your new spawn site will be set. Since this is only a normal world change, the Nether will be unaffected.

so you cannot "shield" from flame

I think what she was meaning is that nothing within 2-3 blocks should be flammable - horizontally, vertically, diagonally. Air is not flammable and is a valid block.

Sorontar,
whose building was once set alight because one of those directions was missed.

true just felt I should also advise a stone floor, 2 blocks above a heat source with wood ontop is not "safe".

Who set fire to his floor, then second floor, then third floor, then roof because he did not realise this
