How many Long John Silver's are there anyway?...

Somebody asked me at church today if I was going to brew my own biodiesel.

Maybe someday, but first I want to master the perfect martini. I know I wouldn't put anything I had manufactured myself in a $200,000 tractor.

My JD dealer agrees.

But lots of other people are getting into the backyard biodiesel business. Mostly they are using free waste cooking oil - which is a big plus for the input cost problem.

Unfortunately, that waste oil already had users and they are not amused, so biodieselers are getting some pushback from the rendering industry.

Can you imagine the bizarre schemes Americans will come up with if gas prices go to $4?
