Former White House Florist: State Visit Revealed First Lady Melania Trump's 'Formidable' Cultural Diplomacy - Breitbart NewsTuesday, May 01, 2018
Even die-hard critics seemed to pause for a moment to admire the multi-faceted diplomatic itinerary that went off without a hitch.”Dowling noted that when the Macrons arrived at Joint Base Andrews, they were given a bouquet of purple irises — the national flower of France.“At the intimate state dinner, meticulously planned and executed by the first lady herself without a coterie of consultants and planners, guests reveled in the elegant setting of a candle-lit State Dining Room,” Dowling wrote. “In the manner of Jacqueline Kennedy, the first lady planned and executed an impressive series of symbolic activities that demonstrated the power of style and cultural diplomacy when carried out on the high profile White House stage.”“There is inherent meaning in the symbolism surrounding the White House and the ability to bring citizens together around shared values and ideals,” Dowling wrote. “While individual details of a state visit may seem innocuous or even frivolous, including the selection of flowers, linens, china, and menu for the dinner, they actually have much greater significance.”“The details roll up into a larger narrative that fosters a dialogue between leaders of nations and their citizens, highlighting common bonds and a shared cultural heritage,” Dowling wrote. “A White House state dinner is perhaps one D.C. ritual that allows us to dial back political vitriol and celebrate time-honored traditions in a non-partisan way.”Dowling noted that the state dinner also reflects how the first lady — not bringing the usual political pedigree to the White House — is making her mark in her role as the nation’s highest-ranking hostess.“Even before the state dinner, there were clues that it would be a departure from previous years,” Dowling wrote. “Pared down and pared back, the first lady wanted the focus to be on the diplomatic tasks at hand.”“A smaller guest list, a streamlined menu and skillful deployment of the White House collection (rather than the use of rental tables and china), all placed emphasis squarely on the honored guests and eased the burden on taxpayers, too,” Dowling wrote. “Even the decision to move the press preview of the décor and table settings to the night before the dinner had implications for how e... http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/04/28/former-white-house-florist-statevisit-revealed-first-lady-melania-trump-formidable-cultural-diplomacy/

Agribusiness accolades: Grinter Farms featured in Country LIving; Next to Nature Farms in 435 MagazineTuesday, July 17, 2018
Ohio, New Jersey, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Alabama, New York (2), Florida, California, Wisconsin, Virginia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, North Carolina (2), Tennessee and Minnesota.Georgia had two fields on the list and, of course Grinter Farms wasn’t alone in the Sunflower State.The other is in Lyndon, which is south of Topeka on U.S. Highway 75.The Lyndon Leader 4-H Sunflowers are “organized and managed by the local Lyndon Leaders 4H Club,” according to Mattern. “This sunflower field in Lyndon, Kansas is open to visitors for photos and flower picking. Donations are accepted on site and are often donated to local charities, making this attraction well worth the visit.”To see the full list, go to countryliving.com.Next to Nature FarmThis month’s 435 Magazine features a story called “The Business of Bees,” which profiles Next to Nature Farm, a local operation just northwest of Tonganoxie.The farm, established in 2008, offers honey for food consumption, honey-based skin care products, fruit (apples, peaches, plums and pears) and eggs.Owner Chad Gilliland, an avid beekeeper, and his family have taken a “chemical-free” approach to their farm, as they do not use pesticides and rely on sticky traps and other means to combat insects.According to Sherry Kuehl’s story about the farm in her 435 Magazine feature, the Gillilands launched their Next to Nature line of skin products for the first time after extensive research between Chad and his wife.Current best-sellers, according to the story, are the Comfrey Salve, Healing Salve and lotion bars.“My wife and I did a ton of research on the medicinal and healing properties of natural herbs and essential oils,” Gilliland said in the 435 story. “We spent countless hours making sure that each and every ingredient component would work well and offer the specific medicinal properties we desired as well as the right natural moisturizing ingredient components that would complement the recipe.”After Friday’s Tonganoxie Business Association meeting, Gilliland told The Mirror that his family stays pretty busy throughout the year with selling at markets and other events. He also hopes to eventually open a store at the farm.To read the 435 story, visit 435mag.com. http://www.tonganoxiemirror.com/news/2018/jul/11/agribusiness-accolades-grinter-farms-featured-coun/
Nature stinks! Rare corpse flower about to unleash its stench at Bloedel ConservatoryTuesday, July 17, 2018
June 21, and by July 6 it was more than a metre-and-a-half tall. Native to the equatorial rainforests on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia, the plant was acquired from a North Carolina nursery in 2016.The plant can grow up to almost four metres tall, and its "corm," or underground plant stem, can weigh up to 90 kilograms.After the first bloom, corpse flowers may not bloom for another two or three years, and can even take another 10 years. According to the park board this will be the first time the flower has bloomed publicly in B.C. The Bloedel Conservatory is planning to extend its operating hours for the fleeting spectacle, which will last between 24 and 48 hours.
