“We do not live in a praying age. We live in an age of hustle and bustle, of man’s efforts and man’s determination, of man’s confidence in himself and in his own power to achieve things, an age of human organization, and human machinery, and human push, and human scheming, and human achievement; which in the things of God means no real achievement at all.  What we need is not so much some new organization, some new wheel, but the Spirit of the living creature in the wheels we already possess.”
Dr. Reuben A. Torrey, The Power of Prayer

You money is likely going towards funding a large corporation at the expense of some poor farmers in an already poor country.

There is a way to stop this madness. “Fair trade” labeled coffee is one way, and there is also a program called the “Cup of Excellence” that provides a way for connecting coffee farmers directly to the roasters and coffee houses all around the world. The programs literally change the lives of farmers and the communties around these farmers. To learn more about Cup of Excellence, Click Here

I purchase my coffee from a roaster in Santa Rosa that purchases Cup of Excellence coffees and has relationships with the farmers. He’s an awesome roaster of very delicious coffee, Andrew Barnett at Ecco Caffe Click Here.

There are a number of other Cup of Excellence coffee roasters. If you want me to look one up in your area, drop me an email.

Organic Tastier and Healthier?

This spring I’ve discovered that organic / farm fresh strawberries are tastier. The chemical fertilizer and irrigation methods of conventional growing methods make the strawberries grow faster, but it just make them taste more watery and less like a strawberry. Organic methods produce a smaller strawberry, but those little berries pack a tasty punch and have better texture.

Now, Some scientific research done a Texas university has quantified that the organic produce is often more nutritious. Click Here

Pesticide Free Kids

Kids are very susceptable to pesticide poisoning from food from birth to 2 years of age because of the reduced ability of the extcretory system to process and reject these pesticides. Little is known about the effects of the pesticide levels in kids, but we do know that pesticides are a neurotoxin that can dramatically effect brain function.
