New York - Beauty and the BeastIt is a bit of a cliché, but beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.

Some people see only the outer beauty, some see only the inner beauty. Some are lucky enough to see both.

I am sure we all know couples where one person is a beauty, and the other is quote the opposite. Sometimes we even shake our heads in amazement but obviously, outer beauty isn’t everything.

We also all see everyday things differently. What is a work of art to one person is an eyesore to someone else. What is beautiful to one person is a nuisance to another.

If you are an animal lover you probably appreciate the beauty in animals that I could never appreciate. Sure there are some things that maybe I appreciate on a superficial level, but not quite the way someone who truly loves animals would. (Though I do love flocks of birds soaring in the sky. They fascinate me.)

I give you my version of ugly. Cows.

So maybe it is just the really awful smell I associate with them. Or the way they poop everywhere. Which takes me back to the smell.

So while I do like to drink milk, sorry black and white fellows, you cows are a bit ugly looking.

So what do you think makes someone or something ugly as opposed to beautiful. Is it just looks or something more?
