composting in elementary schools, deer season here, coach wade gone

composting in elementary schools is going on in a
district near here
there are 80 elementary schools in the district
the plans are to eventually have all of the elementary
schools composting by the end of the year

rather than throwing everything in the garbage and
paying a disposal system to take it to the landfill
the schools will be saving the leftovers and not eaten
food to be sent to a composting center which composts
it and sells it as bagged compost
the district may save 12% on its garbage disposal bill

also included is milk cartons, napkins and other
compostable materials

the district calculates that 3 million pounds of waste
will be diverted each year from the 80 schools

many of the kids are now composting at home
now days kids are interested in recycling or anything
considered green    
these things willl be more important as
they get older and have to deal with worse problems
than what we have now with our pollution, our water needs
and energy needs
(from a review of article in local metropolitan newspaper)

its deer season here
we live a quarter of mile from a river that has a lot of

deer and turkey that are hunted
dont hunt but understand the hunting concept
my two dogs alpha dog  1 and beta dog  2 dont like deer season
at times it sounds like war has broken out near us
they both dont like the booming sound of the guns
beta dog 2 usually only barks when guns are shot off
near here

think that in the area close to us more deer are probably
killed on the highway than are killed deer hunting
thats how got my deer with my car
was an expensive deer and did not get to keep the
deer for its meat

the other time its bad here is with dove season
its louder because its closer to our house as the dove
are flying over our neighbors pastures

this noise is one of the few sacrifices have had to make
by living out here in the solitude of the country

just have to make sure my wife she doesnt make her trip
down to the river during deer season like she did once
when first moved here
my wife she was walking down to the river when she
walked by a deer blind in the edge of the pasture by
the river     there was a gun sticking out of the blind
my wife she decided to talk to the hunter which she
knew so that he would know she was there

my wife she doesnt like snakes but she aint afraid
of a hunter with a gun who doesnt know she is there

well he is gone now
what a nice guy
but hes the head guy so when the team falls apart like
that then its his responsibility

now the boys can move on
jason garrett is a smart guy
maybe a spark can be put into those guys
as the fire to play seems to be put out already

if they could just play buffalo next-
the worse team in football right now
or is that the 2nd worst team
