Our Facebook Favs of the Week:
- Elsa Dickson Pike One of the scariest parts of this for me is that it is talking about events that began more than 10 years ago and most people are still woefully ignorant about the dangers of GMO.
- Just be "cause" you might want to know I actually heard them discussing this on MAIN stream news...whooo hooo! It is only a fraction of the information that needs to be out there for all to see, but at least it is making the news!
- Heather Oswald Bucaram I boiled my old ulta tube (3 times). I mixed cocoa powder and honey together then filled the tube. I'm in love with it. It's really pretty. It never ends up under my eyes and it smells incredible. I also like the idea of everything I use on and around my body being something I wouldn't be harmed by eating. It's dirt cheap as well.
- Judy Charles Deborah....myth! Many sources for yeast/garlic tabs made for dogs available. Mine are doing quite well and no fleas this year! I have quit using poisonous flea products for the first time and so far so good! The lemon/rosemary tincture is great, spray them everyday.
- Barefoot Gourmet - Social Organic Food Great article! We are certainly blessed to live in a country where we just need to look up and find an abundance of coconut water. We are huge fans of the island cocktail you mention at the end of the article except here we call it a coco-loco and instead of a Tom Collins glass, we just pour the rum right into the coconut!
See you in Tweet Land or on the "Wall!"
