Belching Cows Create Global Warming!!!

This article appeared in the Tuesday, January 22, 2008 issue of the Mobile Press Register:

Stockholm, Sweden

Study of belching cows funded

" A Swedish university has received $590,000 in research funds to measure the greenhouse gases released when cows belch.

About 20 cows will participate in the project run by the Swedish University for Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, about 40 miles north of Stockholm, officials said Monday.

Cattle release methane, a greenhouse gas believed to contribute to global warming, when they digest their food. Researchers believe the level of methane released depends on the type of food they eat."

I didn't know that Al Gore had so much influence in other countries to have them believe and spend so much money on such a ridiculous thing.

God made cows. He made them to eat green grass and produce white milk. He gave them two stomachs; one to fill with the green grass (and other things) and the other is to be filled with what has been BELCHED up, chewed thoroughly and passed on to this second stomach for final processed into producing white milk, strength for their body and natural waste.
God Made No Mistakes.

I guess the next headline we'll see will be someone in Tennessee, around Al's non-green mansion, be given a couple of million dollars to study the dangers of flatuence produce by donkeys!!!

And so it goes.......................

Snowstorm in South Alabama

Snow in South Alabama is a rarity. But on this day, I woke up to see snow falling all around Lonesome Pine Farm in Millry, AL.

At first, it was kinda light along with some sleet. But soon it began coming down like times I've seen in East Tennessee and Maine. It was coming down so hard and fast that it looked like chicken feathers floating down, coating everything it touched.

Most of the cows had been out early eating hay along the edge of the woods north of the house. They stayed with it until it started coming down very hard. All but one made it their business to head for the barn to get out of this strange stuff falling on them. The one that stayed at the hay roll was a 2-year-old light brown cow with about 10" horns. She took advantage of the lack of competition around the hay roll. Most of the time, the cows will eat the hay from the center out. This cow had her head almost buried up in the middle of the roll.

Of course, I took many pictures of this event. This was the first snow we've had here since an 8 inch snow in about 1991 or 1992. So, this is a significant event for this place located about 80 miles north of Mobile. Thus, earning a blogspot for history!
