The Future of Food

We decided when we moved into this house (that is way out in the country) that we would not spend the nearly $350.00 each month for internet and cable tv. Instead we are working our Sprint card to the max by running 4 computers and a VOIP system off of it. We watch a lot of HULU to get us by. I have to say- I am quite liking it! We get to discover a new series and watch the entire season commercial free in one night.
Last night we stumbled upon "The Future of Food". A 2003 documentary about Monsanto's genetically engineered seeds.
"This stylish film is not just for food faddists and nutritionists. It is a look at something we might not want to see:
Monsanto, Roundup and Roundup-resistant seeds,
collectively wreaking havoc on American farmers and our agricultural neighbors around the world.
In the end, this documentary is a eloquent call to action."

Pretty interesting and scary stuff! It has fueled my desire to embrace the local farmers in my new found homeland. I have been sorting through Local Harvest all day.

Netflix is great, too, when you're without TV. $9/month for the 1-dvd-at-a-time plan with unlimited dvd rentals and unlimited watch instantly online. Totally worth the money.
