    I think we've been thru this before -- peanut oil is "vegetable oil". There
are as many types of "vegetable oil" as there are vegetables... and they all
burn more or less the same. And before someone comes up with the old "but he
first designed it to run on coal dust", yes, but it didn't run, so he switched
to peanut oil. I switch to peanut oil when I fry fish, but normally fry with
canola. Or a little sesame seed oil when I stir fry.


  And you know what -- the cricks are running, the ponds are almost open, and I
saw a guy fishing open water today -- I think I got to start putting my mind on
