That is a really scary thought, and yes, bioavailability of glyphosate due to glycine inter-changeability would indeed make it more toxic, as so many processes in the body depend upon glycine.

It could conceivably even harm the genome itself:
It is encoded by all the codons starting with GG (GGU, GGC, GGA, GGG).

Here's a simple lab test for glyphosate in the body using a hair sample sent by mail:

They also claim to be developing a do-it-yourself test kit to be done at home.

This lab tests urine:

A study published in the December 2014 issue of the Journal of Environmental & Analytical Toxicology found that the oral application of certain natural substances were able effectively reduce urinary levels of glyphosate.  7  The researchers used a combination of the following substances:

    fulvic acids
    humic acids
    activated charcoal
    bentonite clay
    sauerkraut juice

The article goes on to say that while herbal extracts didn't prevent glyphosate from entering the cells, these did restore specific enzymes disrupted by the chemical:
    Taraxacum officinalis (Dandelion)
    Rhamnus frangula (Alder buckthorn)
    Raphanus sativus (Radish)
    Carduus marianus (Silybum marianum; milk thistle)

Then this combination was later found to prevent glyphosate from entering cells at all:
    Taraxacum officinalis (Dandelion)
    Arctium lappa (Burdock root)
    Berberis vulgaris (Barberry; the active ingredient in barberry is berberine)
    Chelidonium majus (Greater celandine)

That looks like a very practical solution Ilinda! 

We have a similar situation here, though on less acreage.  Groundhog tunnels, some half-eaten sunchokes underground, birds making a game of swooping over the blueberries repeatedly and grabbing what they can in their beaks. 

Unfortunately, our raccoon population is now struggling with rabies, and I don't know how many will survive.  I used to occasionally wake up during the night and enjoy watching a Papa, Mama, and a whole string of baby raccoons walking in a little line to a special water trough that we keep just for woodland mammals, but haven't seen them for a good while now. 

Thanks for the photos!

Such an interesting topic Barb!  It always amazed me that some of these paintings managed to survive the scrutiny of the Church, but they seem to have done so by putting the UFO's in the background of religious themes.  The elongated hat in the picture that you included reminds me of the theory of special cone-shaped hats being worn by hybrid humans with possibly advanced brains in larger craniums.

Yowbarb Note: I do not see the name of this artist on the page. I've seen this paining on the net for a few years, now.

There is one drawing of many in Valcamonica that shows human or humanoid figures with what look like halos around their entire heads. There are lines that may represent light coming out from these circles. They also rather resemble men in spacesuits or old-school SCUBA gear. Either would be rather strange. Proponents of the ancient alien theories say these are early depictions of alien visits.

Fritz Faiss: A Retrospective
September 18–November 28, 2009

Fritz Faiss (1905–1981), German artist, philosopher, author, and poet, was born one of fourteen children in Furtwangen, in the Black Forest of Germany on March 6, 1905. His mother gave him the gift of music and storytelling; his father, the gift of scientific and mechanical thinking. As a young boy he preferred to travel through Germany and Europe alone, on foot or on bicycle, with nothing but his sketchbook and passport. He made contact with leading artists of his time, including Adolf Hoelzel, and was not only a teacher, but a medical doctor as well. Faiss was accepted at the Bauhaus and studied under Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky.

By 1937, Faiss was named a “degenerate” artist by the Nazi regime as the rise of Hitlerism grew in force. Although he was forbidden to paint, exhibit, or send his work outside of Germany, he continued to paint secretively at great risk; he risked his life to save his work just as he risked his life to save the lives of many of his friends. Although the Nazis destroyed Faiss's studio twice, he saved some of his woodcuts from Gestapo searches by hiding them in woodpiles or disguising them by pasting paintings over them and hanging them in his studio. He was forced to give up his medical practice and was taken to a forced labor camp, where he suffered under medical experiments. Faiss was one of three who survived the camp and was released by American intervention.

He spent years recovering from the labor camp and his first exhibition after the war was fittingly sponsored by the American Military Government, in Pforzheim, in 1947. His work has been exhibited in most capitals in Europe as well as the east and west coasts of the United States.

In 1951, Faiss left behind a professorship at Frankfurt-am-Main and came to California. He accepted a position at the University of California at Los Angeles. He left after being criticized for encouraging individualism in the arts, and accepted a position at California State University, Northridge. He retired in 1973 as a professor Emeritus. Faiss suffered a stroke in 1976, which greatly influenced his later work. He took another challenge in stride as he used his left hand to paint.

Others call his work expressionist, but Fritz Faiss's work stands alone; he calls his work “Faissism.” He shifts easily from the naturalistic to the abstract. He was an artist during the years after the first World War, an exciting and unique time; a period of remarkable spiritual uplift and great idealism. Musicians tend to enjoy the harmonistic themes in his work. Other themes include the life of Christ, war, the Hawaiian coast, and Big Sur.

Faiss liked to use pen and ink, silverpoint, woodcut, and monoprint- but is perhaps best known for his mastery of encaustic (wax) painting. He has written several books and is famous for his color theories. The images in many of his paintings reflect his ability to start life anew after the war and reflect Faiss’s inner balance and peace.

That's right,  you were probably in the thick of it all!

I think I must have still been in England during Hurricane FRANCES but was there during Hurricane JEANNE, the edge of which passed not far from us, to the north. That night I could hear whistling sounds like little twisters nearby...
