If Everyone Had Soft Touch The World Wouldn't Be Harsh



Statement time...I try to spend my money at certain place that have respect for workers and the environment.
Since I live in area that don't offer much for everyday items. I some time get push in purchasing from Walmart. I can tell you one thing in a year time. Statement...I haven't spend a 100 bucks there.


I didn't know October is fair trade month. It should be in act everyday. I'm sorry to say the world isn't a fair place.

I try to make things fair as I can.
Maybe two weeks ago I went on a tour though the old part of LOCAL CEMETERY and learn about symbol on grave stone...Three chain length means they had connection with ODD FELLOWS I guess when the time comes I want a pentacle and a broom on my stone. The broom is to represent to “sweep away the world injustice” I know I won't be able to sweep away the injustice of the world but if I can do my small part, a lease it something.


PEACE LOVE ORGANIC MOM is having a give away using rafflecopter. The prize is and stuff lion,  from alpaca fur.
There is 12 ways to entry. I did 8 of them. 
The GREEN HEART SHOP shop offers “fair trade” items.
I'm a chocolate lover and add some nuts. Oh this is right up my ally CHOCOLATE WITH HAZELNUT

Coffee is on

  1. I never heard about the Odd Fellows - thanks for expanding my knowledge. Now I'm off to search for books about them.

  2. I try to buy locally when I can. It isn't always easy, or cheap. I'm fortunate that I can support businesses in this way. I agree that no one should have to work full time and depend on SNAP or heating assistance. This is a big problem in my community, which has high unemployment and underemployment. Alana

  3. The whole cemetery walk was interesting. Here is a few of the syllables.
    Acorn= prosperity, fruitfullness
    Yew=immortality
    Ant=Christian Industry
    Gate=Transit into different realm
    Birds=soul

  4. There a lot of people around my community have a low income and use program such as WIC, Snap, heating assistance, and local food bank.
    Wages are low here also. $12 an hour would consider a lucky wage. Lot of young people are leaving.

    I also have budget and lot of the fairtrade I can't afford it. But I do what I can.

  5. for some funny reason i've always lived close to cemeteries. i live about a block away now. when my kids were little i always took them in the stroller for walks in the cemetery.

    when i fill my bike tires with air i always head to the cemetery and start coasting down the curvy hills to see how far i go. the harder the tires, the further i roll.

  6. The tea company I work for is trying to get all flavors to be fair trade. I know first hand how difficult that can be but if they can make it work then I know it's not impossible! Interesting symbols too, thanks for sharing this :)
