Safe Food vs. Dangerous Food

I can have all the brilliant orange cheesey puffs I want. I can live on it and I can feed my kids nothing but this. That’s legal. They’ll need something to drink so I’ll get some cola to go with it. I believe cheesey puffs would be at the big fat end of the food pyramid with the carbs. Puffs are kinda like bread. Sort of. Or… is it a vegetable?

I’m wondering if that orange occurs in nature. It looks muted here, but it’s pretty shocking in real life.

And is there any real food in . . . → Read More: Safe Food vs. Dangerous Food

My GMO rant. For today…

This rant came from John Kemper’s Facebook thread. John is running for KY Auditor — he has my vote!!! He was talking about seeing corn fields for miles and miles in KY where there used to be horse farms. I’ve been meaning to blog on the topic but haven’t yet… nothing like a Sunday morning rant to get the blood moving, eh? If anyone has corrections or more information, please share in the comments!!! Learning and sharing about GMOs is a passion. I have just scratched the surface of my learning.

Dear Chandler/McConnell/Bunning :

STOP S.510. It will crush family farms and small businesses with excessive regulations and criminal charges — even if no one gets sick! And even though they were NOT the source of ANY food safety problems in recent history.

What if Monsanto were in charge of ALL our food choices?

Believe it or not, this is in danger of happening. If you and I don’t do something to stop the march, it will happen as surely as night follows day. If Monsanto is given the reins, bye bye God’s green earth, hello GMO.

Here are two things you can do right now that will turn the tide:

1. Donate $5 to the Morningland Dairy defense fund. This is the single most important battle going on today. If we lose this battle, Monsanto and its FDA will succeed in breaking down the gates to every single one of . . . → Read More: What if Monsanto were in charge of ALL our food choices?

Costa Rica: On 7,000 Marines, Legalizing Marijuana, and Forcing GMOs

Last Saturday, I was at the Freedom Rally in Frankfort, KY. Yay, freedom! One of the best things for me about being back in the states is getting to participate in the political process. I am a political junkie right now. I must like frustration and being angry, eh?

Christina Tobin was there, too. She is the founder of FreeAndEqual.org, an organization dedicated to making sure all candidates have access to the ballot so the voters know their choices for representation. She is a dynamo, a go-getter and doesn’t let ANYTHING stand in . . . → Read More: Costa Rica: On 7,000 Marines, Legalizing Marijuana, and Forcing GMOs

Stress? What stress? Hey! I asked you a QUESTION!

Moving is really easy: you just throw everything you own into boxes, then lug them around the world on airlines for $100 a box. Piece of cake. Actually, I could use a piece of cake, now that I think of it. A big fat piece of three layer chocolate cake with gobs of icing and some of those pink roses. But I’m going to skip it because I am still in KY, land of the Gigantically Obese.

On the health and well-being scale, Kentucky would be dead last. At least, I’m hoping they would be. Surely there are not more fat people . . . → Read More: Stress? What stress? Hey! I asked you a QUESTION!

Indulge Me For Less Than A Minute?

Make sure President Elect Obama keeps his campaign promise to label GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) foods – this takes less than one minute. Thank you so very much!
