    You have a bat nursery?

    Scary to think about that maybe they're going to try to bypass the honey bee and other pollinators.

    I was at my seed company’s winter seminar a couple weeks ago and they were talking about Aphid resistant soy beans they are working on and said they should be available in 3 to 5 years. I assume these beans will be another variant of BT. They were also talking about the BT soy beans that had been approved for full scale trials in Brazil this year.

    I just don’t know what to think about gm crops. I know as a farmer how much less insecticide we spray on BT corn. But I don’t know the long term effects of gm crops and unbiased research is hard to find.

    to 'loosely' phrase an old song by Buffalo Springfield...

    paranoia strikes deep
    into your heart it will creap
    it comes when you are always alone
    step out of line and some will come and take you a way.
