Hello BESTers,

I came across this intriguing article.  In an effort to increase 
awareness of food waste, an Austrian artist has taken a series of 
still-life photographs of well-rotted food.  I'm not sure if you would 
want these pictures hanging on your wall, but they certainly are 
interesting looking, if not somewhat beautiful. Warning: You may not 
want to look at the photos if you are in the middle eating something.

Have a great weekend,

P.S. I'm passing along another article that was sent to me about a dog 
poo compost operation in Ithaca, NY
