Why I'm not Covering This or That Event Right Now

vintage solar powered hatBack in the 80's I gave my grandfather a solar powered hat with a fan on it that blows a wind on your head as long as the sun's out.  I thought this would make his life working the farm in the hot sun more enjoyable.  He never wore it beyond the mandatory initial try it on for everybody show.  I always assumed it didn't really work because it was just a weird gimicky "future" thing.  It worked.  I guess it was too much technology for him.  It still works, and now I'm wearing grandpa's hat.

Time Again Farms sits just 1 mile from the Appalachian Trail and 2 miles from Intestate 81.  It could be a lot of things but odds are in favor of a new McMansion sub division.  Or not ... saving this 200 year old farm house and 180 acre farm is the goal of Tony Sferlazza.

BioTech 2005 ~ Farmers Speak Out and the Really Free Market

This was filmed at the Really Really Free Market... it's really free because people really give stuff away. Food Not Bombs, fed people, but that's nothing new for them... it's what they do.. feed hungry people for free off the waste of corporate glutiny. I gave out about 20 Fluxview News DVDs.Through out the day Farmers took the mic to explain why Genetically Modified Food is bad for us and all living things.
