Disappointments, the Third

Oh, Speedy! What the heck! I can't believe Idaho's own ended his Olympics in a brawl that had nothing to do with speed skating. Shameful. Shameful!

And speaking of poop, check out this, a story about San Francisco collecting dog poop and turning it into energy. Pure genius, if you ask me. Judging from the amount of dog poop I've encountered walking in the Foothills here, we in Boise could generate plenty of energy to heat our houses and cook our food (now isn't that a disturbing thought: Poop-fried steak, anyone?).

And hats off to the headline writer for "Behold the Power of Poop." To write "poop" in a headline is cool. To use alliteration, even better.

Speaking of recycling, check out The Idaho Statesman on Sunday for my primer on paper recycling from one of my personal heroes. Craft alert: There are
instructions on how to make your own paper without going to the store. Reduce, reuse, recycle, baby! (It helps assuage the guilt brought on with all this
wasteful yarn buying).
