Simply a reminder of what I have lost. I won’t talk to him… otherwise, I’m gonna be deemed a “STALKER” … LOL ;)
reminds me of somebody that I used to know

I love shooting these out of a straw at people c:
Waat I never thought of that! Gonna try it noww :3
Rather than spending thousands of dollars in fixing the pool or having it filled with fill dirt we decided to design an inexpensive & self-sufficient urban greenhouse. Initially, we had anticipated self-sufficiency by 2012 but we achieved our goal by mid-2010. Our family gets about 8 fresh eggs a day, unlimited tilapia fish, organic fruit, veggies, and herbs 365 days a year.
This is genius! My mother wants to fill our pool in with cement considering the cost that goes into something we barley use at all anymore. I wonder if I could convince her to build one of these..
I would do so many of these. I think this post needs follow-ups with video footage in regards to the hilarious results that could come about.
serotonin - happiness, satisfaction
dopamine - love, passion, pleasure
acetylcholine - learning, memory, dreaming
a wallet that will never be stolen from your purse
Will be getting a hoola hoop eventually.. ♥

Create Food Democracy, Occupy our Food Supply
The biggest corporate takeover on the planet is the hijacking of the food system, the cost of which has had huge and irreversible consequences for the Earth and people everywhere.
From the seed to the farm to the store to your table, corporations are seeking total control over biodiversity, land, and water. They are seeking control over how food is grown, processed, and distributed. And in seeking this total control, they are destroying the Earth’s ecological processes, our farmers, our health, and our freedoms.
It starts with seeds. Monsanto and a few other gene giants are trying to control and own the world’s seeds through genetic engineering and patents. Monsanto wrote the World Trade Organization treaty on Intellectual Property, which forces countries to patent seeds. As a Monsanto representative once said: “In drafting these agreements, we were the patient, diagnostician [and] physician all in one.”
They defined a problem, and for these corporate profiteers the problem was that farmers save seeds, making it difficult for them to continue wringing profits out of those farmers. So they offered a solution, and their solution was that seeds should be redefined as intellectual property, hence seed saving becomes theft and seed sharing is criminalized. I believe that saving seeds and protecting biodiversity is our ecological and ethical duty. That is why I started Navdanya 25 years ago.
Navdanya is a movement to occupy the seed. We have created 66 community seed banks, saved 3000 rice varieties, stopped laws that would prevent us from seed saving, and fought against biopiracy.
Corporations like Monsanto have created a seed emergency. This is the reason I am starting a global citizen’s campaign on seed sovereignty. I hope you will all join. The lawsuit that 84 organizations, including Navdanya, have filed against Monsanto in New York through the Public Patent Foundation is an important step in reclaiming seed sovereignty.
The next step in the corporate control of the food supply chain is on our farms. Contrary to the claims of corporations, the chemical-based “green” revolution and genetic engineering do not produce more food. Navdanya’s report on GMOs, Health per Acre, shows that the GMO emperor has no clothes. Biodiverse organic farming protects nature while increasing nutrition per acre. We have the solutions to hunger, but it’s not profitable for major industrial agriculture companies like Monsanto and Cargill to implement those solutions….
[Read full article]Please REBLOG if you want to spread the word that it’s time to take back our food supply from reckless corporations like Monsanto & Cargill and build healthy, just, sustainable food systems that work for us all.
Destroying this planet for GREED is the most asinine thing I’ve ever heard of! When the companies that are doing this “succeed”… are they planning to spaceship off to another planet to start all over again?
Alfalfa a member of the pea family, making it a legume. It is indeed a remarkable plant as it can be planted anywhere in the world, at any time of the year, regardless of temperature and climate and it harvests in only 7 days.

Alfalfa sprouts are easily available nowadays at most health or vegetarian stores and the food section in supermarkets. They usually come in a small square, clear plastic containers in which they were grown.
Buy only sprouts that have been kept at refrigerator temperature. Choose sprouts that are crisp, clean, moist and has no sign of yellowing or rotting.
Refrigerated, it can keep for four to five days, but the “eat fresh” principle applies. Try not to keep them for too long.
