Reading Now

30 Sep

So I haven’t blogged in oh, I don’t know, lightyears. The inspiration to do so hits me occasionally, but I often never act on it.

Today is the day of change my friends! Haha. So I thought I’d compile just some things that I’m reading about/enjoying at the moment.

I usually spend a good 30 minutes reading all my various news sites each day. You find a lot of very curious things along the way.

Food Inc. anyone? If you haven’t watched it yet, at least watch the section about disease outbreaks in food, particularly Salmonella. This particular turkey has been “recalled” ,yet still manages to be sickening

people.  Add this to the growing list of outbreaks this month alone (Tyson ground beef, Cantaloupes with lysteria…) and ponder what exactly is happening to our food system.

Lawmakers are tossing around the idea of having marriages that are valid for x number of years, the minimum being 2.  Couples would have the option to renew, pending they have a valid library card, I mean…. wait….

Is Having a Baby Past 50 Wrong?

Very interesting…. I don’t know really what I think!
