Did you know that organic imports into the U.S. are growing? This apparently means that consumers are becoming more health conscious and are demanding more non-GMO, organic food. Click here

There's nothing more organic then growing food yourself (assuming that's what you're aiming for) and herbs are no exception. Herbs grown yourself can be quite tasty and can really add some wonderful flavors to food. For some good ways to dry and store them, Click here

On a slightly different subject, you may already know that there is a warm patch of water off the west coast of the U.S., but do you know how warm? 2 to 7 degrees Fahrenheit. That may not sound like much, but when it comes to the ocean, that's quite a big difference. Click here

There may not be a newsletter next week as I have to be somewhere on Friday other then in front of my computer putting together a newsletter. But I will see what I can do.
Enjoy the rest of this newsletter, and have a wonderful week.

Something Worth Knowing

Aalto University helps Native Americans relocate after whales warn of impending tsunami
Finland’s Aalto University is helping a rare North American indigenous people design a new hometown that is out of harm’s way, in a cooperative effort with a backstory as unlikely as any that could be imagined. The Quileute tribe of La Push, Washington holds a ritual each year, where every woman, man and child in the reservation summons local whales, dolphins, sharks, seals and other marine species to the community's beach by playing drums. The tribe’s chief then wades among the animals and interprets the sounds they make.   In 2014, tribal leaders said they received information from the Pacific Ocean whales that a tsunami would soon hit their community. La Push is located at the intersection of three tectonic plates, and is prone to earthquakes of a 9-point magnitude.   The tribe immediately started to make plans to move their community to higher ground. It applied for and received money from both the State of Washington and the federal government to fund the relocation.

Happiness – Gateway to the Miracle
Everybody wants to be happy. But if we ask people what makes them happy, they all tend to provide different answers to this question. There are therefore many ways leading to happiness. Out of these ways, there is a form of happiness that offers us an opportunity to peep through the gaps in the wall of our ordinary consciousness and see the reality of our real existence.

The Two Faces of Happiness
Positive psychology differentiates between two faces of happiness. One is the hedonistic type of happiness, rooted in the satisfaction of various physical needs, and the other is the eudemonic type of happiness, generated by our involvement in various activities. We experience hedonistic happiness when some bodily or other psychological need is satisfied. For instance, when we have had a substantial and delicious dinner or achieved one of our goals. Eudemonic happiness is brought about by activities in which we are fully involved, and we enjoy the positive experience of making use of our abilities to the limits. Psychologists have observed that artists, while creating a piece of art, behave as if they were in some sort of a trance. They are so deeply engaged by the process of creation that they completely forget about the external world.

Secret Ancient Subterranean Tunnels And Caverns Across America - Who Or What Were Our Ancestors Hiding From?
Throughout all the Americas there are a number of legends of secret of subterranean passages stretching for miles. Were these tunnels made by giants or did perhaps our ancestors for some reason seek protection underground? Many of these ancient legends tell of a great catastrophe that occurred in ancient times. Several myths and legends also relate how the first human beings emerged from underground caves, tunnels and even cities. In his fascinating book, Native American Myths and Mysteries, author Vincent H. Gaddis (1913-1997) who was famous for using the phrase Bermuda triangle for the first time, relates some very interesting tales of underground passageways and caverns in America. In his book, he writes that "to the Hopi this is the fourth world. Thrice the world on the surface has been ravaged while the Hopi escaped by living with the ant people (ant totem) in an underworld beneath the ground. The Mandans of the northwestern states, some of whom had blue eyes and silky hair, were almost wiped out by smallpox in 1830 with the survivors being forcibly incorporated into the Rickaree tribe. Their legend was linked with the Great Deluge.

Signs That The Elite Are Feverishly Preparing For Something BIG
What in the world are the elite up to?  In recent days, we have learned that the New York Fed is moving a lot of operations to Chicago because of concerns about what a “natural disaster” could do, the federal government is buying 62 million rounds of ammunition commonly used in AR-15 semi-automatic rifles for “training” purposes, and NORAD is moving back into Cheyenne Mountain because it is “EMP-hardened”.  In addition, government authorities have scheduled a whole host of unusual “training exercises” all over the nation. So are the elite doing all of this in order to prepare for something really BIG, or should we just chalk up all of this strange activity to rampant government paranoia? First, let’s talk about what the New York Fed has been doing.  What kind of natural disaster would be bad enough to completely shut down the operations of the New York Federal Reserve Bank?  It would have to be something very unusual, and apparently the New York Fed is very concerned that such an event could happen.  According to Reuters, the New York Fed has been transferring personnel to Chicago and building up its satellite office there just in case a “natural disaster” makes it impossible for normal operations to continue in New York…

8 Beautiful & Easy-To-Grow Houseplants
At Gardenista, we appreciate  hearing about new plants we should try next. From the members of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory, here are the experts’ favorite, easiest-to-grow houseplants:

1. Oxalis Triangularis
Photograph (above) via Easy to Grow Bulbs. Allison Koll at Gunn Landscape Architecture recommends oxalis triangularis, or purple shamrock. She loves its beautiful triangular leaves and deep purple shade, and because it stays alive while her other plants have not. She suggests keeping oxalis in indirect sunlight—its leaves open and close to the sun—and watering every few days or if the soil is dry. It becomes dormant during winter, she says, “So just when it seems like you’ve killed it, it comes back to life.”

2. Fiddle Leaf Fig
Neither Leslie Bennett nor Stefani Bittner of Star Apple Edible Gardens is an admirer of houseplants in general, but both have grown fond of the Fiddle Leaf Fig for its big, beautiful leaves and retro-chic look. They’ve also found that it’s hard to kill. “If things go wrong,” says Bennett, “I just cut mine way back and it comes back beautifully.”  Photograph via The Marion House Book.

Weather Watch

‘Warm blob’ in Pacific Ocean linked to weird weather across the U.S.
The one common element in recent weather has been oddness. The West Coast has been warm and parched; the East Coast has been cold and snowed under. Fish are swimming into new waters, and hungry seals are washing up on California beaches. A long-lived patch of warm water off the West Coast, about 1 to 4 degrees Celsius (2 to 7 degrees Fahrenheit) above normal, is part of what’s wreaking much of this mayhem, according to two University of Washington papers to appear in Geophysical Research Letters, a journal of the American Geophysical Union. “In the fall of 2013 and early 2014 we started to notice a big, almost circular mass of water that just didn’t cool off as much as it usually did, so by spring of 2014 it was warmer than we had ever seen it for that time of year,” said Nick Bond, a climate scientist at the UW-based Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean, a joint research center of the UW and the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Bond coined the term “the blob” last June in his monthly newsletter as Washington’s state climatologist. He said the huge patch of water – 1,000 miles in each direction and 300 feet deep – had contributed to Washington’s mild 2014 winter and might signal a warmer summer.

Food Watch

U.S. is Now Importing Organic Corn to Satisfy Consumer Demand
There are three things driving a surge in organic imports:

1. U.S. farmers have been systematically pushed into growing mostly GMO crops; grown primarily for fuel, animal feed and cheap processed foods. Russia even used our food supply as an example for the EU to dump us and join them instead.

2. U.S. consumers are not only demanding fresh, organic produce as well as non-GMO convenience foods – but also want meat, dairy and eggs from animals that were fed non-GMO or organic feed.

3. Other countries primarily grow non-GE crops, and plenty of organic. They’ve got the goods and they reap the benefits of trade.

This is ridiculous, as the U.S. could not only use a valuable export, but could honestly use a supportive, in-house product. Yet again, we find ourselves outsourcing for staples. Shouldn’t our own farmers be benefiting from this rise in demand coming from their country?

Learn how to dry herbs for long-term storage and health self-reliance
Most herbs are easy to grow in your garden or even indoors on a windowsill or in a hanging planter. They are just as easy to dry for long-term storage. Not only are herbs tasty additions to lots of recipes and the basis of teas, rubs, spice blends and more, but many also offer health-promoting and medicinal properties as well. Anyone preparing for long-term emergencies or just wanting to keep their kitchen well-stocked should consider learning how to dry their own healthful and flavorful organic homegrown herbs. Shelle Wells at has posted a helpful guide for drying herbs using several different techniques. And as she points out, regular harvesting is good for the plants and will provide a steady supply of herbs for storage. As she explains in her article, which you can read here:

You can dry herbs throughout the season as time allows, it's easy to do, and it costs less to purchase your own plants than purchasing dried herbs from the store. Your plants actually respond to regular cuttings by growing better. It keeps them compact and prevents them from flowering and setting seed. The benefit of regular harvests? You will have a longer harvest time and more herbs to dry.
