That's now. Tomorrow is another story. And there's also the individual
person who operated the sprayer. If they own a home, the neighborly thing to
do would be to make them afraid they're going to lose it to settle the
Gee, doing that in Alaska will get you in big trouble. The
legislature just passed a statute about pesticide application
without notification. Some people are allergic to certain ag
chemicals, like me. (What's with people suddenly becoming
allergic to so many things these days? I can't even walk down
the laundry soap isle in the grocery store anymore, and I don't

I dislike the perfumes put in detergents and soap, and look for the
kinds that contain no perfumes. Not allergic, but just don't like the
smell left in fabrics. Some upper department stores put their
cosmetic department near the entrance of the store, and these stores I
I've gone into Whole Foods, when I was particularly sensitive, and
needing to get some vitamin products. Those two areas are the same
department at WF, and right next to each other. I told them I couldn't
even go into the department to shop because of the crap. They offered
to get the products for me, but I was needing to see what they had
first. Wrote a letter to the corporate office. No avail.
