Maybe you should accumulate a list of the best threads to make a sticky... so they don't have to use the search function.....

Talking

Yep, I noticed too. After I got the WVO fleet and fuel setup sorted I stopped checking in so often. Came back yesterday and lo and behold, I"m not the noobie any more! Here were all these posts about alt fuels.

I've stopped yacking about it and am much more protective of my oil source Also decided to quit advertising what I run on for fear someone will decide to come after me for fuel tax...although I don't see difference between running untaxed WVO / diesel v/s untaxed electric/gasoline. A hybrid's a hybrid - we should get a tax break or an award..!

What is a Gentleman Farmer? Is it the same defination as a "gentleman"? AFAIK, that defination states that a gentleman is someone who can shave a good looking kitty and not rise to the occasion.

It's not about shaving kitties, Greg's referring to a far more demanding mistress. Anyway, a few years back, I swore to a single-user license agreement.

Nice spread!

That is quite a nice "mistress" you have there. And yes, you will not have much time to work on benz's if you are building a new house. But the consolation is you could always go fishing if that tank is stocked . Also, that barn appears large enough to hold several projects.

trees???

what do you do with all those trees??? yuck. and everything looks "green". you must have picked it up cheap... but maybe you can convert it to good desert land where you have a good view. cut all those trees down and get some good tumbleweed and cactus.
then you can feel good and cook some biodiesel in that house with the big door on it.
come to NM and i'll show you how...

Hey, I know the land of enchantment has a tree; I saw it once.
