BUFFALO: BY HOT NEW ARTIST FROM BOULDER, COLORADO


Check out this beauty! I found it here in Boulder, Colorado.

Wandered into the Rumours Hair Studio and met this wildly incredible Italian hair stylist who also happens to be the hottest artist in town.

Frances Marino is sizzling with prizes. Her painting, The Pearl Horse, was just chosen for advertising of the Louisville Fine Arts Show. Another, Mares and Foals, is to be published in The International Horse Art book. Best yet, she’s just won 2nd in the Boulder Arts Association Show “The West, 150 Years of Boulder, Colorado” with the painting, Horses West of Boulder.

Hit this link and you can see them all—and more. http://www.Frances-Marino.artistwebsites.com

This shining gal, Frances Marino, isn’t all horses, but she’s sure all West. Check out Things Are about to Change or a stunning abstract like The Heart is a Lonely Hunter.

But then, you all know my favorites would be the buffalos, don’t you?

CARBON FOOTPRINT OF THE BUFFALO


Did you know that the historical U.S. buffalo population had twice the carbon footprint of today’s dairy industry.

I’ll bet you never thought about it, did you? Well, this news comes from Robert Hagevoort, Ag Sense columnist, at New Mexico State University. I had to consult Wickipedia to make sure I knew what a carbon footprint was in the first place.

Carbon footprints are a little like women’s shoe sizes: the smaller the better. A tiny carbon footprint is better than a great big hulking footprint. And what this is really all about are those dreaded green house gas emissions. 

Gosh darn it, quit being so sad about the buffalo. If those forty million bison were still hanging around on the grassy plains of North America, wouldn’t we be in a pickle? 

The last Sioux hunt was in 1883 and Eunie’s Blog on early day hunting stories gives us some grim details of General George Crook’s sportsmanship. 

So, not to worry when you read farm animals produce more greenhouse gases than the world’s entire transport system.
