The Joy of Biofuels
There is a loose collective of people in the region who run our cars on biofuels. We generally find vintage diesel VW's and Mercedes Benzes, convert them to accept an unfamiliar fuel and drive around town in an almost climate-neutral manner smelling of french fries or onion rings. Old cars are much more forgiving than newer models, and better lend themselves to owner maintenance. One of the big downsides is parts. Finding a power window motor for a 1980 Benz 300D can take a week on Google. Finding trim parts for a 1980 Scirocco can be impossible.
The Brattleboro Shop is now open.
As most people know, I’m a big fan of both Brattleboro and local history. I’ve combined those two passions into a project that others can enjoy - The Brattleboro Shop. It’s an online gift store with exclusive, unique Brattleboro-centric gifts and goodies.
My fun comes from re-making old logos and designing retro-looking artwork. It’s good practice for me to study old lettering and to try to imitate old poster styles, and it is joyful to give some of these old designs new use.
You get to benefit by having access to some really neat, new, unique Brattleboro gifts.
