I am currently read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle...and they cover Monsanto...crazy and horrifying.

Am thinking of you as you navigate the other stuff. And I am here if you need to talk.


Hope all is well with you or will be well enough soon!!


Canadian organic canola growers have been battling Monsanto for years now. Basically they are asserting that Monsanto's practices make it impossible for them to produce organic canola. It's a fascinating case and right in your backyard.


I second Animal, Vegetable, Miracle and also the Omnivore's Dilemma. Both are easy reading and very eye-opening.

I'm facing having to buy a new car and am torn about whether I should pay the premium for a hybrid or go for a small car that has great gas mileage. I love my station wagon and there currently isn't a hybrid alternatives. Maybe I'll check out the new VW diesels and see how they compare.

The answer to the fears about control over seeds is to recreate communities that save their own seeds from plants adapted to their own climate and needs. This is the ritual that made civilization possible. No seeds, no agriculture. No agriculture, no villages. No villages, no cities. No cities, no civilization. Rejoin the ritual. Save your own seeds. You can find detailed seed saving information on the site of this 20 year-old non-profit:

I do hope that you and those in your family are okay.

The privacy issue is very understandable. I hope things are ok, but please only share what you're comfortable with.

As for the article, I'll read it once I'm over the jet lag and can focus because it sounds like an important read. I'll keep an eye our for the movie.

Hope all is well.
