Herding Geese

Leave it to my alma mater to concoct a way to keep "goose grease" off of the golf course.  As we now know from our time on the Idaho Falls Greenbelt, goose dropping create a veritable minefield of slippery, smelly obstacles when walking beside the river.  In places, it's so thick, you can't avoid it.  Imagine how the hoity-toity golf crowd feels about slipping up their swing while sliding around on the goose poo.  Well, Good Ol' Purdue simply wouldn't let THAT happen, would they?  Nope, no way.  They have a border collie "on staff" that keeps the geese off the courses.  What a novel and endearing idea.  The local newspaper did a great story on the dog and its human managers yesterday.  You can click here to read it.  If the link doesn't work, just google this phrase "Lafayette Journal Courier Pooch On Patrol" and then select the print link.

Gonna be a busy day today--we'll chatter about it on the other side this evening when we are back here again at McDonald's.  Have a great day and Many Cheers!  jp

I'm so glad you took my advice about Mickey D's and the Wi-Fi. What happened the netbook you had by HP like mine? Hope you like the DELL. The earlier versions had a lot of problems, but I know you'll return it when you're finished anyway:).. Border Collies need a job and you know how much I love Border Collies. Well done.
