Days then weeks go by, and still I haven’t posted any updates….. sorry.  So here’s a very brief one.  Things are progressing on all fronts.  Slower than I’d have liked, but still, progressing.  Going through all my personal things, deciding what to keep, what to dispose of, it all takes time to do it thoroughly and with care.  But I’m getting there…. where-ever “there” is!

Changes happening to the van also.  Some cannot take place until January, but at least they are in the pipeline now.  Other small jobs done today and more on Sunday planned.  Once some basic refits are done, I want to do short trips to trial it and then adjust as necessary.

I’m beginning to dream of getting back into taking my photos again – so I can once more share with you the magic of the natural world and all its bounty.  🙂


The War on Milk

War Notes

Dear Francis,

I received disturbing news today, about the continuing war on real milk by Monsanto.  Remember the joy of drinking fresh milk, virtually straight from the cow, just as God made it?  Sadly, many today have no idea of what real milk tastes like….. nor of the practices that take place in the production of milk.  If only more consumers had an idea of the cruelty to the animals,   I’m sure they’d make better choices…..wouldn’t they Francis?  Sometimes I don’t have the faith in people’s goodness that you have…..Perhaps they need to know the real facts about milk, and instead of being scared of real fresh milk, they would know the dangers of corporate control of the dairy industry and the specific health concerns related to the use of antibiotics and rBGH in the production of milk.

Those who are concerned about food safety and rely on the FDA to guide them, are being deliberately misled – there is nothing independent about the FDA’s decisions!   Because farmers have no recourse through access to federal courts as a result of S.510 (another “conspiracy theory” proven to be fact), the FDA is now allowed to act with total impunity. The fact that humans have a basic God-given right to eat the food of their choice does not apply here. Neither does the fact that humans have been eating small farm food and drinking raw milk for virtually all of recorded history.

I’m sorry the news isn’t better Francis, but Daisy and I wait for the time we can give you some more of her milk which is fresh and real and wonderful!
