I just removed a person from my circles who had recently added me, The number of posts by that person simply overwhelmed all the other posts on my home page. I had tried placing the person in a circle with limits to what was posted on the home page but to no avail.
Please remember that if you share everything, nothing is viewed all becomes lost in the noise.

I have removed a post that linked to a community of those who hate Monsanto. I cannot support hate in any form so it will not exist in this forum.
I may dislike, intensely, the actions of Monsanto as it pertains to GMOs and various other actions that restrict the ability of farmers and gardeners to grow the crops they wish and continue to use seed they have kept over from their cropping practices.

Are farmers being forced at gunpoint to grow Monsanto seeds?

I have removed two posts that had no relevance to the topic of GMOs and the need for them.

Or more to the point the need to avoid and restrict them.

Today the wind is calmed to a gentle 50 kph but it is supposed to get a bit stronger later in the day. I will be out shovelling our walks clear soon but I called our neighbour yesterday to let him know I don't have to go to work today so he can hold off blowing out the driveway until later today or even tomorrow. Actually, I can see the bare ground under and just around the car and at the top of the driveway since the North winds blow it clear to the road. There are places between the car and the road where I expect the drifts are half a metre deep. 
Our snow dog just loved ploughing through the snow this morning out the front door. he was a bit put off by the wind when he went out at 5:00 am from the north facing back door though.
We were fortunate that we did not lose power, There was a line crew checking transformer connections on our road yesterday morning before the storm started so maybe that helped. We are now just sipping our coffee and seeing how the rest of our friends an neighbours are managing via our internet

This is an interesting look at the need to maintain our environment as nature planned it. This is not the first time I have heard of the positive benefits of reintroducing prey animal to an ecosystem and gaining huge benefits. I remember hearing 30 odd years ago of a similar effect on an isolated plateau where a reintroduction of wolves actually improved deer hunting on the plateau and improved the deer herd's overall health.
