The Liebster Award

This just in from The Green Study, one of my favorite blogs: the Liebster Award.

And she has me completely pegged:

“The Life of Kylie- Her blog is a fun combination of parenting, food, serious and really angry issues (just ask her about gun control). You just never know what you are going to read that day from her, but that makes her blog all the more genuine and authentic. Her comments almost always make me laugh, because you get the sense she just can’t help blurting out whatever is in her mind. She’s lovely.”

  1. Kylie, I know, it’s slightly off topic, but I was wondering if you, the Portlandian that is, has read the recently fped post by the GMO-Farmer (more or less about Monsanto) and what you thought of it.
    And btw, any award that comes your way is totes justified 😀

    1. Re: GMO post. I thought it was telling how he called the corn “technology” instead of “seeds.” From what I’ve gleaned from watching Food, Inc. and King Corn and things I’ve read, the problem goes so much further than the possibility that GMO food and synthetic pesticides and herbicides may pose threats to our health and environment. There are also the problems inherent with farmers having to buy from “the company store” and not being able to choose their crops, grow a wider diversity, and save seeds to cut down on their expenses. And corn and soy are mostly feed crops for cows and other animals, which in turn cause a lot of pollution (methane gas, pollution run-off) in addition to not being the most heart-healthy food items. Corn in turn is used for cheap corn syrup in sodas and junk foods, also contributing to the obesity epidemic. The lens on this has to be bigger than just whether the farmer feels his contract is fair.

Say Anything. Anything at all.
