I love the brilliant color of Echinacea and Amarilis in the spring. Found these in the garden this morning.

Two of my Grandad's old screwdrivers. Both customized for some special fit.

In 1978, when I lived next door to Grandma, one Saturday she was going through some things in her garage. She knocked on the door and asked me if I could use any of the tools she was about to get rid of in an old wooden box. I went back to her kitchen with her and picked out these and also a larger, very well worn yellow handle flathead screwdriver.
I don't think I really knew it at the time, but living there, for that year, was really one of the high points in my life.

+Jeff Fincher You're making a common mistake: the natural fallacy.
Why do you link "natural" with "good" or "proper"? You can't even define what "natural" really means.
Is natural botulinum toxin any more healthy?

Prop37 was not a label about pesticides. GM-plants often need less herbicides than "conventional" plants. You gain nothing from that.

You're completely unaware of the current alternatives to GM-seeds. Everything (non-GM) is produced or has been produced in a completely random fashion. Cross-breeding (not used much anymore) for example, will create a plant with a lot of new genes nobody really looks at. Mutagenesis using radiation or chemicals to mutate plant genomes are major contributors to seed production these days.
These are not GMO. They're not put under any specific scrutiny.
And awkwardly, anti-GMO-activists often point these plants out as great examples of how "conventional" methods produce good seeds.
Little do they know.

By the way, genes are just expressions in a small part of a cell. What matters if what the plant consists of.

Is there a VoIP hardphone that allows a USB headset to be plugged in? A PC type USB headset. 
Thanks!

By now I am sure everyone is aware of this. I am interested in the vendor's lack of initial response. Makes me wonder if voice security is thought of as less significant than data security?

You can get bubblegum and bailing wire in the finer piano supply shops.
