Bully bully!!!

I thought he was exaggerating when my friend called and said he had snakes in large numbers in a water trap in his front yard. I grabbed the camera and drove out to his farm. I was amazed when he lifted the iron cover to expose the mass of reptiles inhabiting that small area. Practically every crevasse housed a serpent. They were mainly Bull Snakes with some King Snakes and Rat Snakes. The temperature was in the 70's, and the snakes were lively and active. There were no venomous snakes that I could discern. We agreed that the large ...

Hearts and minds

(The deniers who concocted the theory apparently also believed that Europeans never really landed in the New World but just filmed it out in the desert somewhere.)

This series of articles isn't intended to take sides but to provide information to help in making informed decisions. Now let's briefly attempt to get a handle on what exactly "organic" foods are.
