So, here's a slideshow of the first few minutes of the storm that devastated the house. This is before the hailstones got big enough to punch through our tornado roof, broke the windows and skylights, took out all the fencing, the truck... But, we all survived and everything can be repaired...as long as the next storm doesn't bring another tornado, it's all good. For a given value of good...

It should be noted that the fact that I stood outside with a camera until the air turned white and tree bits started flying at eye level, may be the only proof Tom needs to have me put away in the funny farm.

The Eyes of Texas are Upon You: Leigh Larson, a leader of and organizer with College Kids For Wendy, is now becoming another face of the movement to Stand With Texas Women. Much like Martha Northington, Larson has received a lot of plaudits for leading the "Eyes of Texas" in the Capitol Rotunda at the end of Tuesday night's citizen filibuster.

Now Lt. Governor David Dewhurst may have his eyes on her. She has received notice that the Lt. Governor may be considering pressing charges on her along with others for "disturbing the peace" and "inciting a riot". http://www.burntorangereport.com/diary/13720/lt-gov-dewhurst-atty-gen-greg-abbott-consider-charges-against-student-who-led-eyes-of-texas

This is an interesting argument for total sousveillance by David Brin, author of The Transparent Society.  I don't agree with his arguments, but I find the position from which he argues to be worth exploring. http://hplusmagazine.com/2011/05/23/david-brin-on-the-path-to-positive-sousveillance/

This is madness.  

The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) have filed a petition with the FDA asking the FDA to alter the definition of "milk" to secretly include chemical sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose. This will impact not just milk, but ALL dairy products such as yogurt, ice cream, etc.

Importantly, none of these additives need to be listed on the label. They will simply be swept under the definition of "milk," so that when a company lists "milk" on the label, it automatically includes aspartame or sucralose. And if you're trying to avoid aspartame, you'll have no way of doing so because it won't be listed on the label.

The FDA is requesting comments on this petition. You have until May 21st, 2013 to submit your comments here: https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2013/02/20/2013-03835/flavored-milk-petition-to-amend-the-standard-of-identity-for-milk-and-17-additional-dairy-products.

I filled it out. Here's my response in the notes section:

Any time a corporate interest wishes to 'roll something' into a product (especially so front-loaded into the processing network) WITHOUT allowing for the public to be informed, it is a loss for citizens and transparency - which is increasingly important to voters.

Even if the substances are found to be benign, it is intellectually honest to include such substances in any listing. This contributes to more informed foodstuff choices and will better cover the government when the inevitable backlash against corporate control manifests itself.

It's coming. You don't have to be conspiracy nut to see this one. Any old conservatively-minded forecaster can tell you this stuff.

Storm tore off doors to shed, and hail went thru the walls and windows.

This is so fabulous.  Not that Mike lost his job, but that his attitude about finding another one is so hopeful.  If any of you have seen Mike's job, do let him know, won't you?

Happy International Woman's Day.  In celebration, I give you: "This is my body." This Is My Body

"It is time for you to accept that I am fully aware, capable, and accountable for myself. I don’t need a hero or saving because I’m not in distress. I’m not defined by my need of a man or partner, but I have the right to be made happy by one, in a safe and supportive relationship. I’m not defined by my weight, hair, make up, skin color, or breast size. I do not exist to be your play toy. I won’t wait my turn nor be quiet nor heed you. I know my physical and mental strength and I do not fear you. I’m beautiful, despite what you think, with or without your approval. This is my body, not yours."

Hey gang, DuckiDeva here. :) (Although, to be fair, "here" is relative...I'm rebuilding my computer, and I've just gotten it to boot for the first time in 3 days, and it's making kind of a weird noise, which probably isn't supposed to be be happening...and really, gods only knows when or if I'll ever return to the digital world once I power this bad boy down again...)

Almost as clever as I think I am.
Introduction
I'm a mom, a writer, a wife, a business owner, a soap maker, a baker, a philosopher, a metal sculptor, and secretly... a Mad Scientist. I even have my own Igor. If I were a candlestick maker, I'd be my own crazy little medieval village.
Bragging rights
I can both weld and make a souffle. I cannot, however, do them both at the same time.
