One of our Dads is a bit of a number cruncher and tends to think outside the box. He mentioned something to us that we couldn’t dismiss. He said 1 does not equal 1. He explained that when using fractions, 1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3 = 1 and that made sense to us. Then he...read more

We visited a grocery store recently who had one organic produce stand, surrounded by conventionally grown and GMO fruits and veggies. If more people went to the organic stand and the demand grew, so would the supply. Maybe GMO and Conventional Farming would disappear...read more
