I just signed an important petition major fast food chains to reject a new, potentially dangerous GMO potato. I think you should, too.

Most likely, you are aware of the “the-food-you-buy-should-be-processed-as-little-as possible” trend among health-conscious food consumers. For example, one can now buy oranges at the supermarket, cut them in half, squeeze the juice out of them on the spot and take the juice with you in a bottle. Clearly, this is better than buying some processed potion labeled “Simply Orange” or something like that. There are now many innovative retailers offering such just-made fresh food items. Admittedly, some of these new items could be improved by a little tweaking Here is an example of a product from an innovative Italian butcher offering you a chance to get freshly-made charcuterie – pâté, sausage, things like that. Go to the link and check this out!

OK, time to review your geography:

Hi Ray:

We have had contact in the past; in case you don't remember me, I am one of your Twitter followers and a user of Galleon Forums and BlogCFC. I've always thought of you as my ColdFusion guru and am now asking for your help.

So far, I've had a very bad month, losing a lot of files/data: first, a hard disk crash, then a failure of the external hard drive I used for backing up. I ended up with a brand-new computer. One of the things I need most is the installer for the Developer Edition of CF 8.0.1. I have looked for it all over, but all I find are dead links and 404 Errors.

I thought you might have some ideas on how/where to get this installer. If you do, I beg you, please let me know.

Best regards,

Carlos Corredor

When I first encountered this tweet, I thought Thank you – for what?

I read the article subject of this tweet: http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/indian-scientists-develop-seedless-mangoes/1/373573.html

Somewhere there, I read: there are many who will lament being denied the pleasure of licking the seed clean of the fruit. That alone is the reason I would want nothing to do with one of these mangoes. 

So, no, I do not want one, even for free; and I see nothing here to thank scientists for.

These mangoes are a hybrid fruit; they are genetically modified, not in a lab, as those things we usually think of as GMOs are. Hybrid fruits are the result of different fruit flowers swapping pollen, something that can easily happen naturally. Sometimes that result is good – e.g. the Meyer lemon, most of the time not so good: I have never met a tangelo that tasted as good as a tangerine, or a pluot as good as a plum (this, of course is very subjective, a matter of personal taste). Have you ever tasted a seedless grape as good as a regular one with seeds in it? The Thompson seedless grape is what started making me think that seedless and tasteless are synonyms.

There is nothing wrong with science, but plenty wrong with certain scientists. Most of the time, I wish scientists stayed far away from my food.

Facebook is on a roll today: I found two goodies that those of us interested in health and real foods will want to see:
 
• the image linked below and 
• this article titled McDonalds Warns Employees Against Eating Their Own Fast Food, here: http://nsnbc.me/2013/12/27/mcdonalds-warns-employees-against-eating-their-own-fast-food

I never go into Walmart; I won’t even dignify them by going in there to take a dump – and I wouldn’t put it past them to collect that dump and turn it into one their “green, organic, great value food” products, like this ice cream (watch the short video; I found this while browsing Facebook). You are hereby warned; enjoy your shopping experience.

I am not exactly known for my moderation, especially when it comes to eating - but this simple one-egg breakfast this morning left me sated:

Menu - 
• Bacon and one goose egg, organic, of course (a friend who lives nearby raises his own ducks and geese in his backyard), fried sunny side up, basted with the hot bacon fat, sprinkled with just-cracked black pepper.
• Colombian dark roast café con leche (café au lait) made with raw milk.
• English muffin with raw butter and strawberry preserves.

Yep, REAL FOOD goes a long way!

Story
Tagline
Enjoying good food & drink and staying healthy are compatible.
Introduction

Born in Bogotá, Colombia.

I run three websites, all bilingual (English-Spanish):

http://www.timos.com, about health and the environment. I am very concerned about government regulations, implemented more based on money/lobbying by big corporations than on the health and well-being of the consumer. I deplore the sad state of our food system with its industrial farms, supermarkets full of processed foods and GMOs contaminating our food and the whole environment.

http://www.gourmandise.co, about food and drink. I am all for enjoying good food and drink and attempt to show people how one can do that in a sensible manner that does not have to affect health adversely.

http://www.dirColombia.com, about connecting people in the USA with people in Colombia, my native country.

I might mention that I wish I had more time to create more content for all the above; my entire one man staff is me. But I shall keep trying.

I have nothing against science or scientists, but I hate how some big multinationals are using them purely for profit, disregarding public health. My most fervent hope is that GMOs turn out to be harmless and that I am wrong – but that is not looking good right now.

A few people said I was crazy when I announced my intention to dump all the prescription drugs I was supposed to take for life after my 2002 heart bypass surgery. I did dump all drugs in 2005 and  I am still here, drinking lots of raw milk, consuming raw butter and cream, red (grass-fed) meat; I even enjoy a Cuban cigar occasionally. The whole story about all this is in a series of articles beginning with this one: http://www.timos.com/timos/timoCorner/timoArticle.cfm?itemID=94. If you have had any serous health problems, you may want to take a look.

Many still think I am crazy and maybe I am.

Bragging rights
I beat nearly deadly heart problems, then dumped all prescription drugs. I am a member of the Weston A. Price Foundation.
