What a fabulous place! Trucks going in, trucks going out - municipal biosolids (poop) from wastewater treatment plants gets mixed in a recipe with sawdust, paper flakes, etc., and then gets cooked for six days in a concrete tunnel at 167 degrees. What is left is turned, allowed to age, screened and by then it is black gold: the richest, blackest compost you ever saw. And not really a stinky poo either - sort of like an aura of mild cow with overtones of dirt...really. It's kind of amazing to think that this stuff was dumped into landfills just 15 years ago and now is a premium, recycled product that is used on golf courses, new housing developments, athletic fields and by landscapers all over New England.
Literally from poo poo to production line - I love American ingenuity!
BTW, going off on a tangent and randomly changing the subject, if you want to see a great movie, watch "The Boy in The Striped Pajamas" which has a heart wrenching, very sad ending. Now, I don't really want to make you cry, but the acting in this is so superb that I have to recommend it. It prompted a lengthy discussion about history and perception at last night's Movie Night. If you hate sad endings, don't watch - this one will stay with you for a long time.
BTW again, what the heck happened to just having popcorn on Movie Night? Last night there was a pretzel/cheeto mix, some amazing pretzel rods that had been dipped in melted chocolate first and then rolled in crushed chocolate chips, caramel chips and nuts, real made-by-an-Englishwoman hot cross buns, a fabulous sugar-crusted lemon bread, and.........popcorn. We are getting ridiculous.
Does this sound like dieting to you?
We have gone to hell in a handbasket.
Speaking of poo, little Kiley will be here for spring (easter) dinner Sunday and will stay until Wednesday. WAHOO - I just got back from shopping and bought four new books and a little pair of Crocs for her spring basket and I can't wait to have in her my arms... Happy spring to you too! Don't eat too many marshmallow peeps and jelly beans! Save some for movie night!
