recycle newspaper, why do they

our newspaper is already printed on recycled paper 
so if we recycle our newspaper then we are recycling 
recycled paper
try not to send our used newspapers to the trash heap
try to read them first then 

use them to lay on top of area where will be a garden bed or flower bed 
put down ten layers of newspapers and place good garden soil on top 
these will keep the grass  weeds  and seeds from growing up in the garden
over time the newspapers will breakdown and help improve the soil
also worms love them 
any time can attract worms to the soil then the soil is improved
worm poop is the best fertilizer

use them in our compost pile 
either just throw them on to the pile and the chickens 
overtime will shred them to pieces or we preshred them 
-the chickens really like that- and will work the paper into the compost  
the paper is  gradually broken down into compost 

the newspaper is also used as a mulch over our garden bed
is laid on top of soil and lightly covered with straw or leaves
the newspaper keeps the soil cool and moist 
the worms come to the surface and eat up the newspaper
and produce worm poop again for the garden 

in the garden if have an area that is not going to be used for awhile
will work in compost  add molasses  then will add several layers of 
newspapers on top then will cover with thick layer of leaves or straw
the worms will come to the top of the soil and will eat most of the 
the soil is well aerated from the worms and is well fertilized
with the worm poop 

the newspaper is used as kindling to start our wood burning stove 
in the winter time
take 5 sheets and roll them up then tie them in a knot 
will use 5-10 of these with some pflat wood to start the 
fire in the stove    works great 

the newspapers are recycled to my wife shes school if we have 
any left over      they recycle paper there 

why do they faint those men 
am always having men faint in the office 
women rarely faint in the office
men especially faint when they get blood drawn or get a shot 
men sometimes will faint if you do a skin biopsy on them 
they always wait after you are finished and then when they try to get 
up to go home
they go boop to the floor 

and gosh dont ever talk to them about a vasectomy 
have had a lot get woosy and pale just talking about 
that procedure 

good thing they dont have babies huh
