raw granola and flowers in the sea

making raw buckwheat granola (oh yes how interesting) but now as ive sprouted all me ingredients
getting ready to dehydrate, i now truly understand  1. all the work that goes into it, however it seems rewarding,  2. this now makes sense of the costs of raw eattins.

 gonna be doing the pasadena artwalk again this year, and my mom will have a booth again
fun to watch her in action she gets the work done

more info to follow for oct 13th... this is a new one where the flowers run away from
home and float out to sea
probably because they are tired of the republicans planting hate seeds and dont want to
be tainted by the drift
ok ok ok back to raw granola and painting

bulls just want to relax

this new one creeped in after i cringe when the running with the bulls comes around every year,
not to mention bull fighting is cruel, if these creatures are like taurus the bull they like to be cool
so in other words dont antagonize either one...

politically perplexing place

what are friends? what are presidents?  we are all on our flying agendas what is anything?
the dali would probably say compassion...cornel would look under the carpet for justice,
bill maher would make us laugh at the ridiculousness, rachel maddow spar with words till
you finally get it then show us kindness..... a few days later after reading this draft im just now remembering
my state of mind,  1. scott walker bought wisconsin  2.  do women republicans vote against the ledbetter
act, or equal pay for women?  3. does everyone think by voting for romney they too will make money,
the guy is going to kill our environment and doesnt care if you see a penny.  it all makes me despondent
not to mention  seriously i dont care for marriage what does it mean but same sex partners money is good
enough to pay taxes (they dont ask if your gay when taking taxes from you) so why cant the rights be extended
for same sex couples for social security, hospital visitation, at least in this day and age they have some jobs offering health care for domestic partners, dont get me started on health care. man the state of mind is back
i quickly had to add a picture of my cat cooking white bean kale tomato stew for dinner, that should lighten
the conversation,   but damn i cant help it

refer to title or please tell me its not possible for romney to win,what are the answers,do people really's a new one
that lowers my anxiety calico see's a ghost

10 things monsanto doesnt want you to know

just wanted to post this, to me it reminds me of the mc mansions and how we paved the farm land then is it to late?   man leave our food alone!
What’s wrong with Genetic Engineering?

Genetic engineering is a radical technology that breaks down genetic barriers between humans, plants and animals. Once released, these genetically modified organisms (GMOs) can easily spread and interbreed with other organisms, and they are virtually impossible to recall back to the laboratory.

Monsanto provides roughly 90% of GMO seeds in the world. These seeds have been genetically modified to produce their own pesticide or survive repeated spraying of their toxic herbicide Roundup. Monsanto’s GMOs are not designed to increase yields to feed the world, but rather to increase Monsanto’s profits by increasing the use of chemicals such as Roundup and selling their high-priced patented seeds which farmers must buy every year.

Due to the enormous political clout of Monsanto, the American public is being denied the right to know whether their foods are genetically engineered or not. Following is a list of 10 facts about Monsanto and GMOs, and how they can adversely affect your health, local farmers, and the planet.

1 No GMO Labeling Laws in the US

Foods containing GMOs don’t have to be labeled in the US. Monsanto has fought hard to prevent labeling laws. This is alarming, since approximately 70% of processed foods in the US now contain GMO ingredients. The European Union, Japan, China, Korea, Australia, New Zealand and many other nations now require mandatory GMO labeling.

2 Lack of Adequate Safety Testing

In May 1992, Vice President Dan Quayle announced the FDA’s anti consumer right-to-know policy which stated that GMO foods need not be labeled nor safety-tested. Meanwhile, prominent scientists such as Arpad Pusztai and Gilles-Eric Seralini have publicized alarming research revealing severe damage to animals fed GMO foods.

3 Monsanto Puts Small Farmers out of Business

Percy Schmeiser is a Canadian farmer whose canola fields were contaminated with Monsanto’s Round-Up Ready Canola by pollen from a nearby GMO farm. Monsanto successfully argued in a lawsuit that Schmeiser violated their patent rights, and tried to force Schmeiser to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages. This type of biotech bullying is happening all over North America.

4 Monsanto Products Pollute the Developing World

Monsanto’s deadly legacy includes the production of Agent Orange and DDT. Now massive aerial spraying of Roundup in Colombia is being used by the US and the Colombian government as a counter-insurgency tactic, contaminating food crops and poisoning villagers.

5 Monsanto Blocking Government Regulations

A revolving door exists between Monsanto and US regulatory and judicial bodies making key decisions. Justice Clarence Thomas, a former Monsanto lawyer, was the one who wrote the majority opinion on a key Monsanto case. Michael Taylor once worked for the FDA, later represented Monsanto as a lawyer, then returned as the FDA’s Deputy Commissioner for Policy when rBGH was granted approval. ▶

6 Monsanto Guilty of False Advertising

France’s highest court ruled in 2009 that Monsanto had lied about the safety of its weed killer Roundup. The court confirmed an earlier judgment that Monsanto had falsely advertised its herbicide as “biodegradable”.

7 Consumers Reject Bovine Growth Hormone

In the wake of mass consumer pressure, major retailers such as Safeway, Publix, Wal-Mart, and Kroger banned store brand milk products containing Monsanto’s controversial genetically engineered hormone rBGH. Starbucks, under pressure from the OCA and our allies, has likewise banned rBGH milk.

8 GMO Crops Do Not Increase Yields

A major UN/World Bank-sponsored report compiled by 400 scientists and endorsed by 58 countries concluded that GM crops have little to offer to the challenges of poverty, hunger, and climate change. Better alternatives are available, and the report championed organic farming as the sustainable way forward for developing countries.

9 Monsanto Controls US Soy Market

In 1996, when Monsanto began selling Roundup Ready soybeans, only 2% of soybeans in the US contained their patented gene. By 2008, over 90% of soybeans in the US contained Monsanto’s gene.

10 GMO Foods May Lead to Food Allergies

In March 1999, UK researchers at the York Laboratory were alarmed to discover that reactions to soy had skyrocketed by 50% over the previous year. Genetically modified soy had recently entered the UK from US imports and the soy used in the study was largely GM.

crazy life Alina Szapocznikow

went to this show at the hammer, unbelievable, when i talk about it, it sounds like when a person is compelled
to tell you of their dream and nothing makes sense and you check out of the conversation....but this show makes you feel many feelings from moved to sad to what are we doing to exuberance of putting yourself into work (i guess this is the dream part)  the stuff is so personal you feel almost sick, below are her own words

"My gesture is aimed at the human body, this 'entirely erogenic sphere', with its undefined and ephemeral feelings - celebrating its impermanence in the recesses of our body, in the traces of our steps taken on his earth. Through casts of a human body, I attempt to preserve in translucent polystyrene the ephemeral moments of life, its paradoxes and its absurdity. (...) I am convinced that among all of the manifestations of impermanence, the human body is the most fragile, the only source of all joy, of all pain and of all truth, and this is thanks to its ontological poverty, which is as inevitable as it is - at the level of consciousness - absolutely unacceptable".

'pockets of the world weeping' (myself included)

this is an abstract very enjoyable for me to make, without the identifiable image however delivering an overall existing tone from the rest of my work. the world is hurting and we need to feel it, being aware and rethink our actions.

occupy rose parade

random supporters
of a better world

glad to be a part of this, amazing how people seemed confused of the issue

yelling out 'get a job' (guess what people you could have a full time job with

benefits and YOU are the shareholders nightmare) is this china where everything

has to be cheaper? another yells out ' you just didnt play wallstreet right'

(yeah i guess madoff did or aig or every bank that got a bail out) and finally met

some nice supporters who sat on the sidelines, wanted them to join us but wellwisher's

none the less.
