Roundup proven more toxic than Monsanto claims, Cherries a superfood, Lessons learned from Ration Books.

I thought this was too important, I had to share it.

And from The Preparedness Pro, Kellene Bishop

Alternative pastry crust recipes.   Lessons learned from Ration Books.

I thought this was interesting because Kellene mentions that during WWI & WWII rationing of food was commonplace and often Moms had to do without common ingredients that were once taken for granted.  I'd say they had to get really creative.  I've always been of the opinion that we can learn a lot from our elders and the lessons and times that they lived through.  There aren't many people left who lived through the great depression, so that makes their stories even more valuable.

I thought that these were some pretty thought provoking articles....

So glad we don't drink much soda.  Little to none actually.

Pesticides containing genetically-modified scorpion poison to become recombinant DNA in GM crops.

And then there's this from DIY  I was surprised to see that we're already doing a lot of these things.  Go figure!  LOL!  :-)

I've been hearing a lot about essential oils from the ladies on The Survival Mom Radio Network and I'm really looking forward to diving right into the world of essential oils.  I'm very curious to see what kinds of things that I can use them for.  :-)
