Guess who had a huge part in making DDT? Monsanto--who is now the biggest supplier of fruit and vegetable seed in the United States. Ps, they also helped make Agent Orange.

Heck no.

The sci-fi writers of the past were right. We have given our health away to big business and our humanity away to COWS. This is a cautionary tale come to life.

What worries me even more is that the milk may not even come properly labeled. I mean, in America products containing genetically modified plant ingredients aren't labeled as such. Do you really see the Monsanto-backed FDA deciding that we deserve to know which products we buy contain THIS abomination?

I'm not surprised they've fallen on hard times. I used to love Borders...but then the recession hit and I discovered Amazon and used bookstores like Bookmans. Really, why would anyone pay $10 for a book that they can get for $3 used? Books aren't like underwear; who cares if someone else used it before you?

I've grown these chickens before. They're cool to look at, but they tend to die pretty easily. (None of mine ever lived to the laying stage.) I think the sun gets to them because that vein in their neck isn't protected. It probably wouldn't be a problem in mild climates, but I live in Arizona. (In other words, what the article says about hot climates probably isn't true. Maybe a naked neck would help in warm climates, but God help a naked neck in the 120 degree sun...)

Jess: The husband in the illustration is probably pictured with horns to suggest that he is a cuckold (meaning that his wife was cheating on him.) If you already knew that, good for you! :-D

Woot! Good for him. More people need to give these books a chance instead of just making fun of them. I mean they may be a little trashy, but they're fun, harmless wish fulfillment and in the end that's all that matters.

'Do I really want to be a vampire?' Throughout the series, Bella BEGGED any and all vampires to make her one of them. That was all she wanted out of life; to be with Edward forever as a vampire.

Heirloom carrots still are multi-colored. Here's a for instance:


So many of the foods we have been lost in the last century or two. Thank God there are still purple and white carrot seeds out there to be had! (Also--I hear the taste puts store-bought carrots to shame!)

In her (awesome) book 'Animal, Vegetable, Miracle,' Barbara Kingsolver talks about how there is an entire cottage industry in Italy devoted to this very thing. Tourists stay at family farms--eating, socializing and boarding with the farmer's family just like a bed and breakfast--except they also come to work. This isn't a new thing. It's just new to America.

And I for one welcome it.
