I love Baker Creek.  They're always my first choice when I'm shopping for seeds.  I love that BCHS is not just a seed company, but they are activists committed to educate the public about GMOs and the evils of Monsanto.  Thanks for posting the video!

Two years ago we visited the headquarters in Missouri. You can't walk into the store without buying something. They have a second outlet in Petaluma, CA. Same thing, can't walk out without buying seeds. They are a big promoter of the National Heirloom Exposition (Sept 6-8, 2016) up the road in Santa Rosa. Everyone should attend at least once - overwhelming variety of heirloom produce, products, widgets and gadgets for the gardener! Shocked

If watching that "comedy" film about eating that junk food does not change your way of thinking then you are toast.

Thanks has55, it will help keep me on the straight and narrow.

I have coffee with a friend a couple of times a week and she eats just like that.  I have tried my best to turn her around but she is addicted to the stuff.  She often tells me the the previous day she had been to McDonalds, A & W and Arbies all in the same day.  She is young enough to be my daughter but looks old enough to be my mother.  She smokes ten a day, and is on several medications.  She is arthritic and constipated all the time and takes laxatives and sleeping pills.  She never goes for a brisk walk because she can no longer do more than walk like a very old woman.  She does enjoy the canned peaches and the fresh strawberries and plums I give her, but she only eats them because they do not require any further preparation. 

I will do my best not to give up on her but she is a drain on my life.

There is nothing you can do for your friend except be her friend. You are a wonderful example of being physically and mentally active and I'm sure your diet is part of it, as well as all the walking you do. Some day, your friend will sit down and not be able to get back up. It will take something drastic for her to start changing.

Sanderson, I am resigned to the fact that she will never, ever, change.  As you say, I will be her friend but I know for sure that I will outlast her. I feel sad for her but I know there is nothing further that I can do. Sad

Kelejan, I also have a friend who has many medical problems, does not eat properly, drinks gallons of cola, and gets very little exercise. I am very concerned for this individual but my advice does not and will not help.

Maybe both of our friends could use the following:
