You probably think I’m going to start talking about designer duds. Not here and not now! No, it’s been far too long since I’ve written to you folks and I’ve got more important things to get off my chest.
Lately, I’ve been wallowing in the misery of Prop 37 going down in flames…
Yes, I had truly hoped that the labeling of GMOs would actually happen for California. Well, now it seems there might still be a way.
I got a little email from MoveOn.org with the following:
“According to investigative journalist Jon Rappoport, more than one million votes on Prop 37 (the GMO labeling initiative) in California have gone uncounted to date. Since the margin of “victory” is about 600,000 votes, this means Prop 37 may conceivably have passed.
Rappoport called the voter registrar offices in the largest California counties and nearly 1.7 million votes remain uncounted in Santa Clara, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Orange Counties alone. It is still unknown how many votes are uncounted in other California counties.”
Join with me in getting these votes counted!
And in the meantime, you can look out for GMOs on your own. Food is labeled in many ways, so check out my safe shopping tips below…
Check the label on your produce! Organic starts with 9, conventional starts with 4, and GMO starts with 8.
Watch out for soy and corn. 90% of soy and 85% of corn are genetically modified. Look for ingredients like soybean oil, soy lecithin, and anything with corn in it. If you’re eating non-organic, processed food, you should count on those ingredients being genetically modified.

I’ve missed you folks and I promise to be back again soon!
