First, the good news: You know the old saying, "Spring is in the air"? Well, always each winter there comes a morning when I step outside and feel and smell Spring even though the temps are in the single digits.
This year, that morning was this sunny morning today. Oh my, I smelled spring! And with that scent came all the magic and dreams of warm, sunny mornings and opened windows with breezes blowing the sheers and sitting in the sun outside reading magazines and drinking coffee or lemonade.
I felt it, I really did. Today. And now I can survive the remainder of Winter...... Happy sigh.
Now the bad news. I heard this week on the news that They (whoever they are) have discovered there's mercury in corn syrup. Good grief. You can read about it here. I'd wondered for months why everyone I know is loosing their memory--what one thing is it we all have in common? Well, this could be it. (Find mercury poisoning symptoms here.)
High fructose corn syrup is in nearly everything outside of the organic food aisle. I think we'd all heard that and we all knew it makes us fat, rots our teeth, is hard on our kidneys, etc. But now it's even worse. It appears to be loaded with mercury. Ack.
And here's the good/bad news part. This is what I'm thinking: God has just about had it with our nation and He's doing a first-wave (second-wave?) exposing of corruption and deceit and that 'love of money being the root of all evil' thing.
All our 'Another Corrupt Person Has Been Caught' headlines are not just coincidences. It's happening too much, too often. Bam, bam, bam. And I see God behind it. You may see someone/something else. But I see God doing some cleaning.
And what I am hoping? I'm hoping the FDA will be next. Oh, all the poison they have approved and let slide by knowingly! And actually, the exposing of them has begun. A little. For weeks I've watched the nightly World News show stories about medications which only make things worse and products which should never have made it to the shelves and well, on and on. They've told how autism, ADHD, asthma and allergies have doubled and tripled and become even 400 percent more common than they were years ago. Read about it here, but the information is everywhere. (Here's the video which first alarmed me weeks ago.)
Don't get me started.
But, again, I consider all that exposing to be a good news/bad news thing. Our Country needs to be cleaned up. It's way past time and too many people have suffered for what's been kept hidden and done all for money, money, money.
Please read the information and watch the video before you tell me I'm overreacting, okay? :) There's just too much going on right now, too many young people (especially) who are sick and dying like never before and I, for one, cannot just close my eyes and quip, "It's just the way things are."
Okay, after Nancy's comment, here is the point I think I'm wanting to make... Doesn't anyone else think it odd/suspicious that after all the millions of dollars poured into medical research and all the med's being produced and approved--the numbers of problems/sicknesses/deaths are rising exponentially? Anyone? Shouldn't the numbers be going down?
