VW BUS OIL CHANGE

Every 3,000 miles (1,500 if driven hard), we’re supposed to change Moksha’s oil. It’s the life blood of an air/oil cooled VW Bus. We parked him on a flat surface, put a drip pan under the drain plug, open it up and let it roll. Within fifteen minutes...

LIKE-NEW IS BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

TOSTONES (TWICE FRIED PLAINTAINS) RECIPE

After visiting Puerto Rico, we fell in love with tostones (twice fried plaintains). Plantains are like bananas, but firmer and less sweet. We had no idea how absolutely delicious they are when cooked right. When we left Puerto Rico and made it back to the mainland, we...

Every animal on the planet drinks water, period. Up to 60% of the human body is made up of water and it is essential to our health and well being. It naturally hydrates, cleanses and balances the body. Supposedly, in the 1700’s, a man by the name of Joseph...

CHOOSING FRIENDS WISELY
