Well, today is the last call for chicken orders - if you want some, message me ASAP! Find the info here.
The rain barrel fundraiser has been extended, as we now have a set date and location! You can pre-order your barrels until June 15th. We will be having our sale at the Kitchener Market (300 King St. E) on June 22nd, from 7am-2pm. We'll be located outside on the piazza, so come on by and say hello (I promise to remind you all the Thursday before the event)! Oh, and by the way - it is an amazing price for the quality of product you are receiving - rain barrels are typically sold for $60-150 in retail stores, and our price is $50! Visit www.rainbarrel.ca/indevours to place your order.
Now for the comment on development. One of my professors used this political cartoon in one of her presentations, and I just think it is one of those images worth a thousand words. There is so much truth and in it.
I think this image is an accurate depiction of how the 'Western', 'developed' (or whatever you want to call us) world has taken advantage of the other nations, beginning in the time of exploration and colonization. The one comment I would make on the image is that it neglects to depict our similar treatment of South America and Asia.
Anyhow, the truth of this struck me when I saw it, and I was shocked at the suddenly overwhelming feeling of guilt that I had, as I recognized in this simple cartoon, the story of how I came to have all the objects and general wealth that I possess.
What do you think about this map of the world? Does it make you wonder?
