You'll Be Missed, Duffy Lyon

I'm not from Iowa, I know very little about Duffy Lyon, but even here in Illinois, we've heard of "the butter cow lady." Every year at the Iowa State Fair until she passed the torch in 2006, Duffy Lyon sculpted a butter cow and entertained visitors. On Sunday, Duffy passed away at age 81. Here's a video of her from the 2004 fair.

My first thought - that's a lot of clogged arteries.

Well, that's for sure. I love butter, but pretty much never touch it. I'm an olive oil or nothing girl (well, okay, sometimes I use canola in salad dressings).
