Sorry to hear about Q, Shann. Hopefully he puts all of his trust in God to provide the right girl for him. It's good that she didn't stretch it on longer and longer if she knew she didn't want to marry him. It would be harder if she had waited until after the wedding and all the pictures and memories...so even though it's rough, it'll be better in the long run.
Glad he called you and cried it out.
GMO's are genetically modified foods which are produced to be resistant to pesticides and herbicides. Thus the farmers can douse their fields in both, killing every living thing but the GMO crop they're growing. But now when you eat corn or soy or wheat or vegetables you are eating all of those pesticides and herbicides, and what are they doing to your body? If the farmers wear spacesuits to spread them because of their harmful effects, why would you want to eat them? That's why organic food is so expensive and hard to produce and rarer than GMO crops. Most of the food in the US is GMO, unless it's labeled organic or non-GMO. The CA labeling law will basically force all stores to label everything GMO unless it's not. Then places like Whole Foods where people assume it's mostly organic will be honest about how many items they have which are GMO. A lot of people go to WF thinking that everything's organic, and then they see two items, one labeled organic and loads more expensive than the other, and they buy the other, thinking it's also organic, but it's not. It's GMO. And for a lot of people, GMO's are something we need to avoid whenever possible.
I'm trying to really take charge of my health. I'm trying to lose weight, really cut out the GMO's, to cut back on medication wherever possible, and next I have to figure out how to get some clean drinking water. Apparently where we live has some of the worst tap water in the country. We have a Brita filter, but it doesn't eliminate pesticides which have leached into the ground water. Whenever we do have kids, I want to make sure I'm very healthy so my babies won't have birth defects. Not sure how to figure out the water issue. I'm pretty much non-dairy now, and I think I've decided to be vegan about 1/2 to 2/3 of the time, with fish and grass-fed meat on the side (kosher - no pork or shellfish except very rarely). I know there are a lot of people who are either vegan or Paleo, and they both have points on either side, and Biblically you can make a case for both. But I'm sticking with a balanced diet. And I take a zillion supplements. It's coming up on flu season, and so I need to stay healthy through the winter.
Okay, that is a very shortened version of my sermon on organic food and vegan/Paleo diets. If you want more info you're gonna have to call me.
Had a good night last night and a nice delivery. There was a knot in the cord, so basically it was a miracle baby. So glad nothing bad happened. I had a kind of ugly strip so I suspected something to that effect; had the NICU team and the neonatologist there for delivery but the baby cried right away and did fabulous. I even made it out on time which was wonderful.
Debating whether to clean house or chill tonight. We had a nice Indian dinner earlier with a Groupon deal. I may need to work off the points from my dinner with the DDR...
