I've been debating with myself about 'Jumpin On The Energy/Fuel Bandwagon' for sometime now.
I'm not much of a News Paper reader, but HiHoney reads and reports on important issues like the Energy/Fuel Woes, so I'm up on that.
I'm not much for 'Shootn'Off my BossySmartMouth...as HiHoney calls it, and stating my opinion, but all the Hooplala Goin'On lately got me to thinkn' about a Solution right here in Texas.
And wouldn't you know it.....it involves a Herd of Heifers....'CowGirls'.
"Ya know Bossy, there's alot of mooooin' goin' around about the shortage of fuel.
Yep, Mabel, I've heard that the 'TwoLeggers' are havin' some issues with all their 'Fuels' like gas, heat, food, oil and lord knows what else.
Oh, Girlfriend, ain't it the truth. They should put us Heifers in charge, why we produce enough 'Poo' to keep that 'DirtyJobs' guy and the other 'TwoLeggers' busy for years."
CowPoo may also be collected and used to produce biogas to generate electricity and heat. The gas is rich in methane and is used in rural areas of the world to provide a renewable and stable source of electricity.
CowPoo is also used to line the floor and walls of buildings owing to its insect repellent properties for some types of insects (not flies or dung beetles). In central Africa, Maasai villages have burned cow poo inside to repel mosquitos. In cold places, cow poo is used to line the walls of rustic houses as a cheap thermal insulator.
CowPoo is also an optional ingredient in the manufacture of adobe mud brick housing depending on the availability of materials at hand.
CowPoo, known as "cow chips", is used in the traditional Texas sport of "cow chip throwing". Another game is Cow Chip Bingo. (Thanks Wikipedia...modified a few choice words...okay?)
"Mama, do ya think they really 'ThrowOurChips'? Mama, what's Bingo?
I don't know, SweetPee! I was just wonderin if they know about our Cookies!"
PS...I hope you enjoy the CowChip Cookies. I haven't tried them, but Bossy and Mabel make them for their Little Heifers all the time, and say they are really good for 'TwoLegged' Heifers and Bulls, too!
Oh, and the CowPooPitcher....not one of mine!
