“What’s a book Grandpa?” That seems like a fair question, I used to do book reviews in this space not that long ago. Now, I find myself searching and surfing my way across the web for knowledge and tips. I think I get more, more efficiently so I can get back to my game of choice. Here’s a list of my favorite links to things I’ve found on the web by category. Consider it a peek into my library.

I go back to these sites over and over again. The free content is plentiful and helpful. For more lube specific help, the National Oil & Lube News (www.noln.net) web archives are a great resource as is AOCA. I am available to host a training session in your market. It’s a fun and intensive program for you and your employees.
