Not unlike the glorious Village Harvest above, the new website Veggie Trader strives to eliminate the waste of the natural or home grown vegetation all around us.
Veggie Trader allows registered users to tap local resources to buy, sell and trade area fruits and vegetables. In “these tough economic times” you have to ask yourself, “got fruit?”
There’s hardly a neighborhood in the Q where you can walk a block without passing the decay of apple, apricot or even grape yard “crops”.
We’ve done the leg work for you and found that within 100 miles of the metro there are in fact currently a total of 7 listings for herbs, flowers, fruits and veggies – more than we expected.
So if you need a little green or just strive to be so, harvest the crops around you to spare them from becoming waste and you can donate, sell or trade ‘em. We wish you good farming!

Indiana chapters of Planned Parenthood are offering gift certificates for healthcare services at their clinics. Similar programs are or likely to become available in Illinois, New York, Alaska, and Michigan. Surely among it’s critics will be the Wolverine in Business Barbie clothing known as the governess of Alaska – who opposes sex-ed in her state.
Outraged groups ignore health service and education benefits citing ‘lethal’ treatment possibilities. Planned Parenthood president and CEO, Betty Cockrum asserts basic healthcare such as annual exams, including cancer screenings and contraception, are often put off in tough economic times such as these.
An ABC News.com commenter says, “Wal-Mart gift cards can be used to buy alcohol and ammunition … but nobody is outraged.” – Nuff said?
Real – As seen on Rachael Ray, Rachel Calabrese provides birthday parties to underprivileged and displaced youth and their families. The organization Calabrese is a part of is called Birthday Wishes, please check them out here and the video on this program is a must see here.
Lesson Learned – If not you, who? If not now, when?
Unreal – The pretty pixie above: “Jill Hutcheon, president and CEO of the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board and a deputy minister at Queen’s Park [Canada], is charging [Canadian] taxpayers for gas and grocery bills at the cottage, car detailing and ritzy hotels…spent almost $7,000 on a two-day conference in New York City last April where she stayed at one of the most expensive hotels in the city, the Waldorf Astoria… [alledgedly] spent $2,000 on meals last year…[and] spent $168 for a Toronto hotel room when she lives in the city…Hutcheon earns a salary of about $400,000 per year.” – CTV Toronto
Some crime prevention organizations have held local events giving cash or gift certificates in exchange for guns – no questions asked.
It is somewhat difficult to find such programs NOW in progress. The above video and following links are from previous weapons exchanges. YOU can contact your local Crime Stoppers to inquire about starting a program in your area.
The combo of rampant illegal firearms and the very poor economy can only up the incidents of gun violence – already OOC, out-of-control. The NRA has nothing to fear – It’s the illegals (guns/not peeps) that are most used in violent crimes. Let’s get ‘em turned in. Hell, call your local police dept. or crime stoppers and ask straight-up, “What’s the exchange rate on guns today?” Abq., NM Police Dept. offers cash for crime TIPS….
