Food, Inc.

Recently, our family watched a new movie called Food Inc. This film is extremely eyeopening as it describes where the vast majority of our food comes from. It goes into great depth as it documents the reasons why a hamburger costs less than a bag pf apples. It dives into topics like the dangers of E Coli and how they bathe meat in ammonia to kill bacteria.

Do you really know where your food comes from? I thought that I had a pretty good idea until I watched this movie!

Basically, most of the food in grocery stores comes from a few major companies that control how the food is made and who it is made by.

Although the people who made the movie did not appear to be Christian, they did seem to understand that food left in its natural state (the way God created it/ planned for us to eat it) is best. However, they mentioned "evolutionary design" a couple times. (Please.... now I've heard it all!!)

Aside from the humanist aspect of the movie, it's a great film that everyone in this country should watch! You'll never look at dinner the same way!

Finally Fixed...

For as long as I can remember, the only chair in my room has been broken. Recently it almost reached the point of no return, as you can see.

Molly was quite fascinated by the old glue.

A little too fascinated...

My seat in the mean time.

After taking it apart, my dad and I used J-B weld to put in back together.

At one point, many years ago, my Dad refinished the desk, chair, and dresser set.

To tell you the truth, it's not the most comfortable work station. But the neat thing about it is that my Dad worked on it when he was young. It makes my happy to see the chair restored for future generations.

...'til next time....

Broken Promises

I want to apologize to my readers for not posting recently. I have been working on a few posts, but have been very busy lately. Just what has been keeping me so busy may show up in later posts... We shall see.

In the mean time, I thought some of you would enjoy this...
