Is nothing made in US free from GMO?

Submitted by Oldroser on Wed, 02/20/2013 - 01:00.

 If this article is to be believed, very little. Unfortunately, it probably is at least mostly correct.

Luckily they don't have it here, as far as I can tell, in fact much that isn't listed as organic is still really organic per local articlles, and I cook and bake mostly from scratch. I bake much too large a batch for me and share with my neighbors. A young Texas systems engineer neighbor says he can tell.

The fantastically beautiful Jacaranda tree

Submitted by Oldroser on Mon, 02/18/2013 - 16:41.

 At the Central Park the other day, I was struck by the beauty of one of the many trees in blow (roses are blooming also.) When I asked, I was told that it was the Jacaranda tree and more will be in bloom Holy Week.

Not having had my camera with me, I found this image of it online.  Please click on the link to see it.

Flowers everywhere

 I wish I had had my camera the other day. I saw white flowers intermingled with the other colors cascading over a wall when Brody and I walked to the next little town. Almost all the walls are like this.

This is on the road to Guatemala City,

Typical street, see the cobblestones.

 No Seasonal Affective Disorder here. I really enjoy seeing the blue, blue sky here.
