WINNER:  EnvirOnMentaDoubLe PlaY.   "In an effort to reduce herbicide use, we have placed conveyor belts at the bottom of the perimeter fence.  This helps to reduce climbing vegitation and allows a small buffer for the mowers so they do not have to 'hug' the fence.  Preventing plants from climbing the fence also serves a security function." - Lowell Wright w/ Dane County Regional Airport in Madison, WI

repurposedGAME/SHOW.  Damon was the morning speaker yesterday at a big Kansas conference.  One fun part of his routine is he brings contestants out of the audience to come on stage to play "Name That 'Repurpose'".  He often pits one major university against the rival state university.  Anyway, yesterday it was Kansas vs. Kansas State.  When he asked about "repurpose" ideas for 275 gal totes, The KU team suggested that..."You could make the 275 gal tote into basketball hoop that the K-State Wildcat team could actually hit!"  Ah, we love "repurpose" trash talk!

repurposedIDEA:  "Find a qualified welder and weld together cooking grates for Weber grills!  Better yet, size them to go with 55-gallon steel drums which you sell.  Add some 4x4 legs from the steel you have extra, and you’ll have a killer BBQ." Lee

repurposedIDEA:  "Depending on alloy and wall thickness you might be able to get some to automotive brake line builders.  Classic Tube and Inline Tube are two companies that I can think of that build stainless brakelines for older vehicles." - Stephen
