There has been no market incentive to manipulate the gluten content in bere, as it is not widely grown--it has a 90-day growth cycle and can only mature in places where the number of hours of daylight is high, restricting its cultivation to northern latitudes where summer days are long but summers are short.

    ... you to everyone who has supported me during all my ups and downs during my search for a new job and in realizing my dream. It's been hard and I know there are still struggles to come, but having you all behind me has been a big help. So thanks!

    ... my last few jobs but it will get me out of the house and keep me busy. Also gives me an excuse to head to town hall for free wifi. Yay! Everyone seems nice and I'm getting 20 hours a week until at least November. The pay is the same, if not better, than I was getting as an assistant manager at the fabric store so I can't complain.

    Anyways just wanted to update people on what was going on!

    Miss you all!
