going out to the farm…

23 Apr

I went to visit my friend Debbie this weekend at her gorgeous 140 acre farm – I mean it was just something.  She has everything – a lake, horses, chickens, and…calves!!

This is a Belted Galloway named Oreo, a non-GMO altered breed of cow.  OH?  You did not know that beef is a GMO?  Neither did I.  Truly disturbing.  As I was looking for tastier food, I have made the rather unfortunate discovery –


GMO is becoming more widespread – sugarbeets made it on the list last year with GMO sugar now making it’s way to your table.  It used to just be corn syrup.  Now I have to buy organic sugar?!?!?  I mean I wouldn’t care about this except the US population is basically acting as a test trial for completely non-studied genetically modified food.  And the worst part – when the academic community looks at GMO food – it makes animals sick!

(the quick and dirty – GMO corn damages kidney function of test rats)  Mansanto took these researchers to court to try to supress these findings….hmmmmmm…….

Anyways – I saw one of my favorite guitar players the other day – such a great singer…
