    of mosquitos recently- scary thought being that they're out spraying by truck and chopper every damn night this time of year. Nicotinoid pesticides kill off every damn thing it makes contact with and the use of then is rampant throughout this area of Florida for a multitude of lame ass reasons, the residual nature of nicotine based pesticides not only kills in the immediate sense, but for a very very long time thereafter.
       As long as our politicians, Repugs and Dems alike are swinging off of the nutsacks of Monsanto, Bayer, and the like, things  will only get worse. They're in full Inhoff climate change denial mode about the use of pesticides, antibiotics, growth hormones and everything else they have snuck into our food chain in the name of production for that almighty damn dollar.
       I wanna move to Canada SO bad, just can't take the cold or I'd have been gone long ago.

      It doesn't get all that cold there, and it's gorgeous. I'd move there but it's hard - very nearly impossible - to get immigrant status when you're over sixty.
