Saying for the day- Use the talents you possess - for the woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except for the best. ~Henry Van Dyke
I don’t know if this is good or bad news but the price of bird poop has gone up. It is good news for the Peruvian company that controls the 20 islands off the shore of Peru where guano piles up , over a foot deep in some places. The company is now intensifying its poop harvesting.
It’s bad new for the poop users f the world who will now have another thing along with food and gasoline they have to pay more for.
Who wants guano?
Why producers of food of course. It is one of the greatest chemical free fertilizers in the world. That means the cost of food already increasing will increase even more..
It is good news for the workers who mine the stuff. They stand in their bare feet and pick the hard guano loose with a pick and shovel it into bags. For this they get $600 a month, three times what one makes on the mainland of Peru. I am not sure that you could get me to stand on bird poop in my bare feet even for triple the going salary.
So important has guano been to the world that wars have been fought over it.
Now this is stuff you would never know if you didn’t read this blog.
#### News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal. Two more people did their stories for the local contest. One got a 7.3 and one got a 5. The 5 was as low as anybody has ever gotten. He must have had bad judges. In any case we will share with you only the stories getting over 8.
The Tommy Club went to the crossing yesterday where the White Rabbit was last seen. Tammy pointed out some odd markings that seemed to be made by a wheel and four things. Tommy UK said those could be from almost anything. But Tammy thinks they could be from some mechanical device that ran the rabbit. The rest of the Club agrees. They followed the tracks to the woods and then they just disappear. Tammy thinks that if this was a mechanical rabbit it was picked up here and loaded into something. Tommy UK still thinks they are wrong. Tammy says she understands how Tommy UK who has spent all this time defending the rabbit from Mrs. Trumble would be reluctant to admit it was a hoax. But he is just going to have to face up to it.
Mrs. Trumble says that the demon rabbit wants them to think it’s a hoax. But she knows its real and dangerous.
