Actually, that mechanic probably has a waste oil heater, and burns it to heat his shop in the winter. Mine does...

I'm in MS, it gets sold to a place out of AL. The place in AL either recycles it or uses it as fuel in some industrial equipment. Or so I am told.


Winter is when we turn off the A/C and let the women wear shoes.

I have always had an environmentalist side, tempered with a side of pragmatism. I garden organically as much as possible, prefer a natural landscape to a large expanse of manicured lawn, but will use chemicals if necessary, sparingly of course.

Whether Earth Day is the creation of long-haired hippy pinkos or not really doesn't matter. What matters is that this ball of rock and water orbiting Sol is the *only* habitable home we humans have for the foreseeable future, and to deliberately trash the hell out of it, or to let others trash it through apathy and ignorance, is, in a word, stupid. Take better care of the Earth, and Humanity as a species may last awhile. Keep going the way we are going, and future generations will curse our generation with their every wheezing breath.
