“Carroty Lion,” an art entry, reminds me of Frankenfoods.
We have been eating strictly organically for three years. We made the decisive switch when we became friends with members of the Weston A. Price Foundation in 2008 and never looked back, except to pat ourselves on the back. We learned that it is hard to understand how much fast food and industrially prepared food affect your health, body and emotions until you make the switch, feeling better every day.
In addition to avoiding pesticides and added chemicals such as preservatives, we have avoided GMO, or genetically modified foods by eating strictly organic. Genetially modified foods have had their cellular structures rearranged on the molecular level. To the naked eye, they look the same, but microscopically, their chemical structures have been changed to formats that have never existed before. They are testtube designed for reasons other than health. What I am saying is they are designed with storage longevity, profit or any one of a number of other motivations, none of which include the health and fitness of animals and human beings.
An educational video on GMO foods features an interview
with Jeffrey Smith. His book is previewed below.
GMO foods are nothing short of remarkable, in that it is amazing we have the technical ability to design food on the molecular level. Being able to do something, though, does not make it right for or advantageous to everyone. While the industrial growers gain market and profit share, consumers are being physically and mentally disabled as these bits of molecularly designed foods enter the food supply. Those people who oppose eating such patented invented foods call them “Frankenfoods” with good reason. And, it is important to realize that many countries, other than the United States, do not allow the sale of GMO foods.
Here is an interesting article on the Hershey company reformulating their chocolate products so that they DO NOT contain GMO ingredients in order that they may be sold to the European markets. This is sobering as it indicates Hershey products sold in the United States DO contain GMO ingredients.
Dr. OZ discusses GMO foods on his show, while indicating
the drawbacks of GMO consumption.

What a glorious story of being homeless while holding
out with hope and a positive attitude.
It was an inspirational moment when I viewed this first video on YouTube.com last week. What a neat person and what a story. But, as the week went on, the story and the video’s posting on YouTube got better and better. This is a perfect example of keep love in your heart, knowing what you want, visualizing it and making it happen. Seeing this was a great way to begin the New Year. See what you think!
Standing on a street corner with a sign advertising
his abilities has changed Ted William’s life. He has
gone from homeless to famous, literally overnight.
CBS and the Today Show both picked him up and
interviewed him giving him more national exposure,
a new job and a new home!

A very Happy New Year to you and yours with all
the best wishes for 2011, each and every day!
It is wonderous, nothing short of amazing, how fast the year goes by. I am sure I don’t have to go on at length, because I bet everyone out there will agree with me. I am always reflective, therefore, when I come across heartfelt sentiments from year’s ago, like the greeting on the back of the above postcard:
12/29/16 Dear Abbie: I wish to thank you for all the
presents you sent me. We had a dandy day for Christmas
this year. Everything was all white. A Happy New Year
to you all. Edith
Am I just nosy? I just naturally HAVE to know who Abbie was. Who Edith was. Their relationship, how they lived and how they died. Such love and sweet sentiments from almost one hundred years ago remind me that, just as everyone says, the years pass too quickly and our turn to enjoy life comes to an end. At this time of year especially, it is good to reflect that each day a gift.
With that in mind, here’s a little penguin who knows how to get the best out of each moment, even though his elders aren’t quite sure what to make of it:
I get happy watching this little fellow. Isn’t it catching?
And look at these people! What a genius it took to create this eye catching performance. If you remember back to the 1970s, the following video will make you smile and get your New Year off to a happy start:
Rock out with some memories while this “group” puts on a show.
Once again, here’s wishing you and yours the best of life and love in the New Year. Come back and visit as we take on 2011 together. I’ll be watching out for you and leave a light on!
