All I got out of this was "Open the bag of concrete and mix some water in" daah!

Where is the measuring for certain size jobs? What part cement and what part water, and what kinds to blend for the strongest. And what is this light stuff you talk about??? Never heard of it and where do you get it? What is it good for? stepping stones?

The real success to any concrete project is the consistency of the concrete, not too thick or thin but better to err on the thick mixture.
I have quit using a whellbarrow/hoe/shovel for mixing concrete several years ago after a friend introduced me to product called the cretesheet. This is much easier to use and greatly controls the pouring without a lot of mess. I usually let it dry for a few minutes then just shake it off and store for next project. Forgot to mention the whole thing weighs less than a pound.
I was laughing the first time I saw it but soon realized it was no joke, much less expensive than a wheelbarrow. The only mixing tool I currently use.
