So how much is this idea going to cost the ratepayer? And now glass will end up as trash. I doubt people will go through the effort to store it, then haul it to the center.

We got The Letter today.  Does anyone know where besides the Recycling
Center glass will be accepted once we switch to single stream recycling and
glass will no longer be picked up?

Overall, I'm excited about the progression  :-)  Getting used to every other
week only pickup will be an adjustment and I'm not thrilled about piling up
recycling between, but we'll adjust . . . and rearrange our garage, I guess.

The most significant concern for our household will be that glass will no
longer be picked up.  Although I understand the problem glass creates in the
single stream recycling scenario, I'm pretty unhappy about having to haul it
to a collection location once we move to single stream recycling.  We have
been pretty diligent about recycling even before there was curbside
recycling, and glass is by far our household's largest (space & weight)
recyclable.  With the exclusion of glass, I really wish we would have had
the option of a smaller roll cart or bin  :-(  I'm not thrilled about losing
garage space for a container I expect will be much, much larger than we need
with the glass exclusion plus having to make reserve more garage space to
accommodate the glass we will now have to haul ourselves to avoid it going
to the landfill.

My dh enjoys his wine & beer, and he looked at me like I had two heads when
I suggested he switch to beer in cans and wine in boxes, and he was even
less thrilled with my suggestion that he give up alcohol altogether because
of the glass issue.  Go figure.

Ever wonder why your cat goes bonkers after taking a dump? Well, here comes the science . . . just in time for Caturday.

Courtesy of The Dodo at:


Why Do Cats Go Completely Bonkers After Pooping?
Cat lovers know that their feline family members can have very peculiar bathroom habits.

Arguably, the greatest mystery of these behaviors is when cats LOSE THEIR SH*T, figuratively, after losing their sh*t, literally.

Bolting out of the litter box is a bizarre phenomenon, and the theories aiming to explain it are quite varied.

Some say post-poop freak-outs, or "zoomies," are a carryover survival instinct, so that predators can't trace the smell back to the kitty responsible for it.

Others, including a veterinarian, say that it can be a sign of discomfort stemming from food allergies or even an infection.

Still others, including another veterinarian, say that using the litter box might lend some fresh energy to cats, and they burn off the high with a favorite exercise: running frantically around the house.

It could also be that cats run to cast off any remnants of waste. Or perhaps kitties sprint, some cat lovers speculate, because they can't stand the smell of their own droppings.

Or maybe it is just exactly what it often looks like: a sign of happiness and exhilaration.

In humans, the vagus nerve, which descends from the brainstem to the colon and is stimulated during defecation, can cause all kinds of reactions, even feelings of exhilaration, according to gastroenterologist Dr. Anish Sheth, who wrote "What's Your Poo Telling You."

A similar phenomenon could be occurring in cats and could explain why cats seem elated and happy, running around and scratching their scratching posts with joy, Erin Willis, animal physiologist at Oklahoma State University, told The Dodo.

"Dr. Sheth calls the pleasurable sensation with defecation 'poo-phoria.' Good name for humans I guess, but the term 'poop crazies' is much better for cats, in my opinion, since they essentially run around like crazy cats afterwards," Willis said, adding that there is very little research on the matter.

Whatever the reasons are, we just keep scooping ? and sweeping up the litter.
