    So-called "green" antifreeze is propylene glycol and is available at some auto stores. I bought a gallon locally for $3. Works fine. It's harder to find in auto stores however because either 1)the ethylene glycol big boys like Prestone, etc. have poisoned the market against the PG types, OR 2)some mechanics say that the PG stuff actually makes the radiator rust out sooner than the EG type. Take your pick.

    It's been a long time since I have seen a radiator that could rust. It's hard to see how either glycol could cause "rusting" and they both have corrosion inhibitors anyway. Ethylene glycol is bad for children and dogs because it is sweet, poisonous, and children and dogs love sweets and cannot read labels. I think it's propaganda by the manufacturers of ethylene glycol antifreeze.

    All of this discussion got me to thinking about the lyrics for O. of O.'s old theme song: "Keep them guessing, with Oil of Olay" . Is it only me, or is there a deeper meaning to those words. Could this be the much discussed, highly sought after photo/artist's/ elixir, guaranteed to instantly inject an image with subtle level of depth & mystique, or at least seem to???

    And think of how youthfull your hands will look after using it for a few weeks!
