I posted last month about Josh Tickell's book Biodiesel America and mentioned a couple of weeks ago that his documentary, Fuel was coming to Columbus. I went and saw it at Studio35 in Columbus on Tuesday (tonight is the last night it is showing here) and it was every bit as good as I had hoped. Now I just need to find ways to put it all in practice. If it comes to a town near you, please go see it. It is well worth the time and money. I just wish I would have been able to get a few more people out with me to see it.

Before I forget, I wrote a couple of weeks ago about Fuel and Biodiesel America. Well, I got an e-mail the other day that the documentary will be coming to Columbus 17-23 Apr. I'm looking forward to seeing it. Join me. Info is here.

Things have been pretty busy for me lately. I took a brief vacation last weekend and visited my baby sister and got to see my nephew, the baseball star, play. His team won both games, he scored the first run in one and drove in the game winner in the other (and according to my internet research, he appears to have won this past Thursday's game with a solo homerun in the top of the 7th inning). It was a good time, I always enjoy spending time with Munchkin and her family. Yesterday and today seemed like they would have been great days to fly, but, alas, I didn't get to. I hope to get in some flying again in the next week or two, but that will depend in part on the work situation. The company and the union are still negotiating although the contract expired last night at midnight. If the union goes out, I'll have to work in a new place and, I'm told, it will be 6 12-hour days per week for the first few weeks (if the strike lasts that long). Ah, well, it isn't flying weather now, we have thunderstorms and a tornado watch and they are predicting snow tomorrow and Tuesday. Gotta love spring, huh?! Oh, well, tomorrow is opening day of the baseball season and the NCAA championship game (in basketball), so I'll try to OD on that and enjoy the snow. It also just occurred to me that yesterday was the 41st anniversary of the assassination of Dr. King in Memphis. As I think I wrote before, I really came to appreciate him much more in the mid-70s, but I do remember the rioting that broke out after that awful day. I'll try to write something of substance in the next week.
