READ ALL ABOUT IT
You can't make this stuff up department......heard a news report the other day that there is a study underway at the Lacombe Research Station, to look at ways to reduce the amount of methane gas produced by cows. This may be a much-needed study in the eyes of some, but cows produce methane gas based on how much they eat, and subsequently expel into the air.
Now one has to wonder how they measure the quantity of gas expelled, and who is the poor guy that gets to hook up the plastic bag, (presumably), to get a control sample of expelled material.
Things brings up all sorts of possibilities. It's not the Seine River in France, but looks like Love Lock fever has reached Rosedale's Swinging Bridge across the Red Deer River. We were out at the famous attraction on a cold Sunday, and visitors have started to adorn the walking bridge with locks, not unlike the now famous Pont des Arts bridge in Paris. For years, people have been locking the padlocks onto the bridge and, then, as a symbol of their love for each other, sign them and then throw the key into the river.
Wo rke r s in Paris have had to cut the locks off, as the tremendous weight, ( 45 tons), added to the bridge with thousands upon thousands of locks pose a safety hazard.
Hopefully these locks can be removed as well, before it becomes a major issue.
