BLOG: Toofer Sale at Pete’s Blog and Grille
Side by side logos for the BCTA and Death By Diesel.
First, one of these logos has been serving the British Columbia Trucking Association for a quite some years now.
The other has come out of the mist, from a group called Death By Diesel.
I Googled Death By Diesel to ask about the logo, but there’s no phone number on the site. So I thought I’d just stick it up here to see if anyone thinks Death By Diesel has anything in common with George Harrison, the man who “wrote” My Sweet Lord.
A free Today’s Trucking Cap to who ever guesses what the heck I’m talking about vis-à-vis the Beatles’ lead guitarist and Death By Diesel.

P.S. For the record, the BCTA is more of a man than me and not caring one whit about this logo thing. That fine organization is finding itself a new one, anyway. This venture is purely my own invention.
Here’s part two of the toofer: Pete’s tips for living I’m sharing just because I want to and because they all work.
- Want faster service when phoning a Federal or Provincial government service outside Quebec? Press two for “Service en Francais.” Your call will be answered quicker and the attendant will be bilingual and will help you.
- Stuck in traffic trying to get somebody to let you cut in? Catch a passing driver’s eye and hold it. You’ll own him. Works every time, not so great if he's wearing sunglasses or his car has smoked glass.
- If you’re at a party, always carry two drinks in case you find yourself in the middle of an extremely boring conversation (say somebody’s telling you about an episode of a TV show that you don’t care about) you can just hold up one of the drinks and say “oh gosh I almost forgot, I have to deliver this.” (This one I attribute to one of my favorite Journalism Professors, Patrick McFadden.) Wait... You’re leaving. You have a what to deliver?? A drink?
