Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels across country in my mobile billboard truck as I attempt to engage in dialogue with people in hopes to wake us up and inspire action to change our country and communities and selves. And it is froth with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society and life we want

pride goeth before a fall - to be continued

I'm so full of myself: I've found a nice, empty lot with a decline to park my truck on so I can lift the hood without help and change my veg oil filters.

I change the little one again, even tho I just changed it yesterday, 500 miles ago, in California at a rest stop. It is dirty already, although not critical, but I decide to change it anyway along with the big filter.

Feeling quite accomplished, I lower the hood and attempt to start the truck. It is still hot so I'm starting on veg oil. Only the truck won't start.

I decide there is air in the line, reopen the hood - altho it is much heavier this time despite the decline - and notice that the big oil filter has not filled up with veg oil. So I open a drain valve and rescue some oil, feeling quite resourceful, and poor into the filter.

It STILL won't start. I switch to diesel and she finally fires up - not after I close the hood on my little finger, smashing it and drawing blood! grrrrr - battle scars of veg oil
