Show & Tell
I finally arranged my schedule so I could show my car to an environmentally aware fifth grader at one of my schools. Originally my plan was to obtain pure cooking oil from the school's cafeteria, but I soon learned that food isn't actually "cooked" at the school and the so called "kitchen" is lacking any items you might assume would be present. After a quick detour to Krogers where I purchased a small bottle of canola, I took the student outside for a tour of the grease mobile. Before I let her pour oil into the tank, I made sure she understood the difference between a greasecar and other common, gasoline powered vehicles. It would be very bad news if she went home and poured canola into her parents' cars.
