Quote ~

‘The perfume of sandalwood,
the scent of rose and jasmine,
travel only as far as wind.
But the fragrance of goodness
travels with us through all the worlds.
Like the garlands woven from a heap of flowers,
fashion your life as a garland of beautiful deeds.’
— The Budha

Dog Days of Summer are here.!

The Dog Days of Summer are upon us. Yes indeed, the heat is hot, the humidity is off the charts!

The good news .. my tomatoes are starting to turn red and I have had my first ‘home grown’ tomatoes this week. Been eating fresh squash, cucumbers, the garlic harvest was awesome. Can you tell I love garlic.!

The economy has us all ‘holding our breaths’. The gas prices are ‘over the top’ and many of us are trying to renegotiate the way we purchase items and do our ‘running around’ .. Which is all a good thing really.

They keep saying ‘Americans are soft’. Well, I don’t believe that. Call me ‘Pollyanna’ .. but I do believe .. when the going gets tough .. we step up to the plate.

The upcoming elections .. well honestly, I can’t go down that road.. politics and all.. I rather keep that ‘opinion’ to myself. Suffice it to say, I’m not happy.My generation, (yes indeed I’m a left over hippie) .. we spoke out and rebelled.. and many of us .. are ready to do it again. Are we really a nation of ‘sheep’.. ??

Well, its something to think about.!

Here is an interesting story that needs to be heard. Acupuncture treatment offered free for veterans: ‘It’s aim to help with post-combat stress’.

Another site I wanted to share: National Vaccine Information Center:
This website was created to provide you with the information you need to make an informed vaccination decision.

The new and improved is up and running, and I’m happy to report with minimal problems. Thank you all for your patience with this process and I do hope that you are enjoying the new SunRose site.

An very important issue is on the horizon. The FDA Globalization Act of 2008. It is imperative for all small business owners and our client base to be aware. Be informed.!
