Well, it has been an interesting day and this will be a picture-heavy post at the end. It's a day I've been kind of looking forward to for a year, since I missed the last one! I joined the March Against Monsanto in Sacramento! It was a fairly good turn-out, but the organizers were a bit un-organized (they admitted) due to a couple of leaders not being able to help this year ...
So, my day started out around 9:30 this morning when I headed for the local farmer's market! I lucked out and found a very healthy lemon cucumber plant that I wanted. Already has 2 long vines and some baby cukes on it! I also found a cute birthday present for someone special that's coming up in a few weeks. And, some carrots for my bunnies. And, a gluten-free brownie for me. Then, since the farmer's market is on the grounds of the library ... I went in and renewed my card. After that, it was off to fight the traffic to Sacramento. It was horrible! Found a parking spot in a residential area about 6 blocks from the capitol and walked to the meeting spot on the West Steps of the Capitol building. After the speeches and some music, the March headed to the Sacramento Convention Center where the California Democrats State Convention is being held. There was even a politician marching with us, but I didn't catch his name ...
I'm a little disappointed that no one mentioned that glyphosate (main ingredient in Round-Up, made by Monsanto) has been found in vaccines ... but, I'm not quite brave enough to speak in front of crowds ... yet ...
I snagged this pic of me from one of the videos that was taken, which you 'might' be able to see here: https://www.facebook.com/red.sun.31521/videos/1371606706261973/ I'm in it at various times, just standing around with my backpack and my sign. ;)
When I came home, I had to soak my feet - Epsom salt and tea tree oil did the trick. I don't think I'll have any blisters, but it sure did feel like I would when I was walking back to my car!
