    had an old coal converted to.oil furnace. outside covered in a layer of asbestos. i wet it down with a hose then broke it off put in a trash bag all the time wetting it down and wearing a dust mask. you dont want the fibers floating in the air. sealed the bags and threw them in dumpster. then i beat the carcass into manageable pieces to carry out basement. the key is too wet it down

    An Observation for the Fuel Debate

    i buy the premium high test ehtanol free gas for use in my small engines. more power and faster starts. at my age i cant be pulling on the starter rope more than a couple times. just read we are the number 1 oil producer in the world thanks to the permian and bakkens. the pundits said we were running out of supply 10 years ago. the technology thanks to big oil has made the USA a big exporter of petroleum products

    Thoughts on GM plants closing

    would never buy a government motors car out of principle. when the government bailed them out it left shareholders with nothing. i drive fords and international trucks. my 2 suvs expeditions are 20 years old pickup is 24 years young. i dont have the need to profile in a 60k$ car and make payments. i think i have gotten my moneys worth. any repairs might be a few car payments so i am way ahead. i used to have so many.payment books i couldnt keep track. despise the banks and fimance companies. end of rant
