last of the blueberries

'H' is still working on that ear infection. She has a fever and she says her ears and nose are "plugged". She didn't sleep well last night, and neither did I. That's okay, she's not in pain and today we enjoyed the blueberry patch. It's almost the last day of the season (I picked some of those bushes bare). We were the only people there.

I don't have any complaints about life, it's all good. Beauty all around.

Here's something Jeff and I noticed this summer - genetically modified corn has come to Saratoga County. This Pioneer Hi-Bred corn is bred to resist glufosinate, a highly toxic herbicide. Glufosinate is currently being phased out across Europe because of the health and environmental risks. It's probably already in use around here, and the presence of the Pioneer Hi-Bred now guarantees it. Good-bye butterflies and bees, hello birth defects and fertility problems.
