Sorry everyone...tons of stuff going on.
I was in Milwaukee for a shoot with Kohls,
and have been running around the city all day today and earlier this week.
I just bought two colonies of honeybees,
and after watching the feature on 60 minutes
and reading Dhru's posting, I couldnt agree more.
Conventional bees are treated so poorly,
and I think that the wave has finally crashed on the beach.
They are robbed of their honey, fed poisonous corn syrup,
and totally pumped full of toxins.
I didnt even like the idea of buying my bees from
conventional beekeepers, but they offer disease free bees
that are close to my home in Minnesota, so I can get them easier.
You should see it though...in their catalog
they sell corn syrup by the TRUCK LOAD.
A big 18-Wheeler filled with Corn Syrup.
Here is a fun fact that many of you might not know.
The Hostess cupcake company had their original factory
in cleveland, and corn syrup would flow through the pipes.
There would be puddles of high fructose corn syrup on the factory floor.
Not even RATS or FLIES would eat the syrup.
Only dogs and humans would eat it.
I have been reading the Anastasia series, and I am up to book three.
I actually was happy that my flight to Wisconsin was delayed
so I could keep reading in peace without having to get up and wait in line.
It keeps getting better and better. These books will change your life,
especially if you are in the process or raising children or are planning to someday.
There are so many more to read, so I am really excited to explore more.
A documentary that I recently watched was
"The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil"
