Dog poop has bright side: Powering Mass. park lamp

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — It stinks and it's a hazard to walkers everywhere, but it turns out dog poop has a bright side.

Dog poop is lighting a lantern at a Cambridge dog park as part of a monthslong project that its creator, artist Matthew Mazzotta, hopes will get people thinking about not wasting waste.

The "Park Spark" poop converter is actually two steel, 500-gallon oil tanks painted a golden yellow, connected by diagonal black piping and attached to an old gaslight-style street lantern at the Pacific Street Park.

After the dogs do their business, signs on the tanks instruct owners to use biodegradable bags supplied on site to pick up the poop and deposit it into the left tank. People then turn a wheel to stir its insides, which contain waste and water. Microbes in the waste give off methane, an odorless gas that is fed through the tanks to the lamp and burned off. The park is small but has proven busy enough to ensure a steady supply.

Dog Poop Lights Park Lamp

A dog park in Cambridge, Mass., is being lit up by the excrement of the dogs who visit, reports Fast Company . Dog walkers are encouraged to deposit their pets' waste at a methane digester called the Park Spark, which then turns into a burnable gas that powers a lamppost.

101A along the Atlantic ocean in Flagler county  Florida

unlike Volusia county is definitely pet friendly.

All of the pets have a leash on and enjoy getting along

with other pets and the ocean, the pet owners that we

met were very friendly and seemed to enjoy Breanna's first

encounter with the Atlantic ocean far more than she did!

Don't get me wrong I believe that Volusia has at least one beach

that if you wish to have your pet see the ocean just

"show them the money"!

All of the rest of the ocean is blocked by cement buildings!

We took Breanna to Flagler county  on the east shore,

the west side of Florida is the oil problem!

As you can see Breanna's first encounter

with the Atlantic ocean did not go as planned,

she wanted nothing to do with the water chasing her!

 

 

Motels near A1A Flagler beach Florida?

We enjoyed this stay and give it 5 stars.

 
 
 

We all know that almost all Red Roof Inns

http://www.redroof.com/

 and all Motel 6's

http://www.motel6.com/

allow pets however, there are many more motels that are starting

to get the message that they were losing a lot of

great customers because of a bad rule.

the

 " No Pets Allowed!

rule!

I could use your help in getting the word out

as to where these new friendly places  are.

I also know that there are a number of

beaches and parks that now allow pets.

Airedale Picnic

05/03/2010

This past week end we enjoyed the Airedale picnic with Breanna

and her new friends, we the pets of Breanna met many good people

and are proud to say that we are joining this club.

I did take some pictures however, I was so busy playing with

the Airedales that mine did not come out all that great,

the club did also take photos so I will add them

as I get them.

we were all welcome!

This is a real nice older motel that is kept clean

and Amish and his mom are a blessing.

We like this style because of the ease of getting

Breanna out the door for potty runs.

The motel is a few miles from the park that we went to however,

no problem getting around.

If you need information they know the answer,

 if not their computer does.

The pool  and rooms are clean with Wi Fi connections.
