Mother’s Day Winner / Armed Forces Day ~


Armed Forces Day –
President Harry S. Truman
led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.
On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days.
The single-day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under one department — the Department of Defense.

Quotes ~
‘ When our perils are past …
shall our gratitude sleep?’
~ George Canning
‘ Lord, bid war’s trumpet cease;
Fold the whole earth in peace.’
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
‘ Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all!
By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall.’
~ John Dickinson
‘ I can no other answer make,

~ William Shakespeare

Many thanks ! 10 Years Later!!!

This is a time of thanks .. to all those that have supported me and my vision of SunRose. Here I am .. 10 yrs later … it is just amazing to me. Many thanks to all my customers, family and friends that have been with me thru these years .. and continue to believe in SunRose and the beautiful aromatic materials we offer.
Saying that … thru the years I have developed friendships with my suppliers/ distillers from around the world. I am ever aware of the strife in many of the countries essential oils are obtained from.
Most recently, the atrocities going on in Mumbai .. and the terrorists attacks there last week. This was equivalent to the 9/11 terrorists attack here in NYC .. I had the honor of meeting Ramakant, our grower/distiller from India, a few years back. My dear friend Sandrine VanSlee had brought him up to the Bronx to meet me .. he is such a kind, gentle man .. his love and knowledge of essential oils is just amazing.
Then to read about the attacks there .. makes me so very thankful that I live here in the USA. We sometimes forget that we still do have so many freedoms, and as a female ..
the opportunities that I have .. however, would NOT have in many other countries.
The Internet has made it is easy for us to get to know the people of far off countries, learning about their customs and way of life. This has been one of the major blessings that I am so thankful for.
When I read this article .. I thought it so apropos … sometimes we forget .. we are a community, those of this modern generation have become so insular .. emails, texting, etc .. to read more:
Keep Friendship Alive – People need people. And often they don’t realize how great their need is until some moment of great joy or deep sorrow. At some point in your life you’ve probably experienced this yourself—wanting to share some great news with a friend or, perhaps during hard times, needing care and support from others …

I’m thinking .. a ‘white Christmas’ ..

The Winter Solstice,
also known as Midwinter,
is around the corner ..
Some quotes for the winter season ~
‘ In ancient times, both Druids and Romans
hung sprigs of mistletoe in their homes
and places of celebration to bring
good fortune, peace and love.
‘ Winter is on my head,
but eternal spring is in my heart.
— Victor Hugo
Blow, blow, thou winter wind
Thou art not so unkind,
As man’s ingratitude.

from another –
Winter night.’

Mercury in Mascara?
Minn. Law Bans it.
AP News AccessNorthGA

Associated Press Writer
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The quest for thicker lashes and defined eyes should get safer in Minnesota on Jan. 1, when a state law banning mercury from mascara, eye liners and skin-lightening creams takes effect.

Minnesota apparently is the first state in the nation to ban intentionally added mercury in cosmetics, giving it a tougher standard than the federal government

Federal law allows eye products to contain up to 65 parts per million of mercury. The exposure a person would get from a product used in small quantities around the eyes would not cause a problem, Bailey said.

Breast Cancer knows no boundaries. So many in my immediate family and close friends have been down this road. Those who know me, know my opinion about chemotherapy. Saying that, every individual has the right to make their own ‘personal choice’ on what type of medical care / treatment they want.

Test may spare many women chemotherapy

By Judy Peres Tribune staff reporter December 14, 2007

from Chicago Tribune

SAN ANTONIO – A gene test can help doctors determine which breast cancer patients are likely to benefit from chemotherapy, even for those whose tumors are relatively more advanced, researchers reported Thursday.
