GE pays no taxes?

Report: General Electric Paid No Federal Taxes Last Year

I'm a bit disturbed that this is legal. I would think our country's budget would be in better shape if it wasn't. True, they need to be able to run their business, but if they saved the money they used to pay people to figure out how to not pay the taxes, maybe paying the taxes wouldn't be a big deal!

I have found the love for knitting! I never knew I would enjoy the craft so much, and even thoough it makes me feel old, I don't want to put it down! I'm almost done with a child size sweater now, which is my 4th project - ever! I started with the scarf, then the hat... pretty typical stuff. I then tried my hand at making a cup cozy, which I gave to a friend, and now the sweater (which will also go to a friend).

I have my next three projects queued also! Two more cup cozys and a headband. I figure they are small things to try new techniques like cabling and lace. I'm excited! I'm making myself take a break from knitting though after this sweater so I can read Green Deen, a book I checked out from the library.

Need to Get Back on Track!

I have been completely waivering in my organic and healthy shopping habits. As a mom to a new baby, I have been taking the easy way with getting groceries delivered. While the delivery service does have a good organic selection, it is all too easy to go the cheaper route and get the generic stuff.

I still stay away from MSG and HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) for the most part. Especially since I'm nursing, I want to keep those at a minimum. Shopping at the grocery store with a new(ish) baby is just draining! How do people do this!

This summer we will be starting to go to the farm for our CSA share again. We are really looking forward to visiting the farm and I am excited to make baby food from the produce we get there!

What do you eat organic? Do you think it is valuable? A scam?
