Organic rather than transgenetic.
Labor instead of chemicals.
Diversity in place of monoculture.

it's black friday and i am determined not to indulge in consumerism so i went out to the corn field to see how things were...what i discovered was a reduced amount of cobs with kernels...it seems the wildlife has found a food supply ( i startled a flight of geese sheltering in some tall grass next to the field [the weather has turned decidedly more winter-like today] and i can only surmise that they were there for food as well as shelter ) could that broken cob with a few kernels left be the result of a deer hoof? maybe...or maybe someone just stepped on it ( not me ) whatever the cause there does seem to be less corn in the field this week than last...it's going to be gleaned whether it abuts a few "big box" stores ( whose parking lots were surprisingly under parked...particularly walmart...perhaps they will finally get the labor unrest they so deserve )...i will be making a few more trips out there to see how things progress...more later.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
