so much so much so much

I have so much to fill you in on.  Right now, however, I can’t…but I will, promise.  But a friend through my CSA posted this and I felt the urge to share.

We had a proposition on our CA ballots this year.  Prop 37, it was to label GMO foods.  Sadly, it didn’t pass…but there’s a movement behind it so it’s only a matter of time. I found this list interesting. … food for thought, esp. those who opposed it.
