Tributes as well-kent Largs florist and former fireman passes away - Largs and Millport Weekly NewsSunday, January 17, 2021
From 1979 to 1991, Stuart served with Largs Fire Brigade in a retained capacity. He also owned another business in Largs with fellow fireman Jim Robinson - Robinson and Kennedy - which did window cleaning and swept chimneys. Stuart was also a proud member of Largs Rotary Club and Largs Golf Club. Daughter Elaine took over the running of S Kennedy's from 2008 to 12 after her father retired, while Liz stayed on part time and then retired in 2012, when the business was sold. In 2015, Stuart and Liz became grandparents when David and wife Nicky had a son Joseph, who brought great joy to his 'papa' Stuart. Elaine said: "Unfortunately in later life Stuart experienced problems with mental health. We all tried very hard to help him beat this awful illness. He also had physical health problems, with fractures in his spine which also stopped him from going out as he couldn't walk far. "In the last number of years he rarely left the house, although if he did meet anyone he would blether for ages and he would love it." Largs Fire Station also issued their condolences with a tribute. A spokesperson said: "Its with great sadness to announce the passing of a former retained firefighter of Largs "We have lost Mr Stuart Kennedy, who served 12 years on the crew supporting the local community of Largs and surrounding areas between 1979 and 1991. "Our thoughts go to Liz, Elaine, David and his family at this sad time." The family said that they would like to thank Largs Fire Station for showing their respects with the fire engine on display and the fire crew in attendance for the passing of the hearse last Tuesday. Elaine said: "It was such a great gesture that my dad would have loved - it was very much appreciated."... https://www.largsandmillportnews.com/news/18972459.tributes-well-kent-largs-florist-former-fireman-passes-away/
Lakewood florist helps spread joy to those impacted by coronavirus - News 5 ClevelandThursday, April 02, 2020
LAKEWOOD, Ohio — Despite the fear and feeling of uncertainty many of us are experiencing during this pandemic, Blossom Cleveland owner Megan Robinson is helping uplift others and her community one bouquet at a time. Like many small businesses, Blossom Cleveland has closed because of COVID-19. Robinson was forced to cancel orders for canceled events scheduled through April, but the flowers she has left in stock aren’t going to waste. “I feel like flowers are important,” she said. “It seems like a little thing to a lot of people but it’s not. They bring joy no matter what.” As COVID-19 forces more people to stay home, Robinson came up with the idea to arrange and deliver flower bouquets to those who have been impacted by the virus. “Most of the people are either nurses, they’re pregnant and they can’t leave the house. We do have some people that were quarantined that we’ve delivered to,” she explained. “People whose weddings were canceled so we have photographers and friends reaching out saying 'Hey we had to cancel this wedding what can we do to bring joy right now?'”Robinson has been accepting delivery and curbside pickup r... https://www.news5cleveland.com/news/made-us-smile/lakewood-florist-helps-spread-joy-to-those-impacted-by-coronavirus

Texas Florist Who Admitted to Being in Pelosi’s Office Wants Case Moved from D.C. Because of ‘Cancel Culture’ - Law & CrimeWednesday, March 31, 2021
Washington, D.C. because of “cancel culture.” The defense for Texas florist Jenny Louise Cudd, who was on video happily admitting to being in the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, asserted authorities were creating the “illusion” of a conspiracy between her and Eliel Rosa by linking their cases.“According to the Government’s Statement of Facts, the two were seen on security footage walking into the building, walking around, and walking out,” attorney Marina Medvin said in a filing Wednesday. “There is no evidence of communications or a plan between the two to enter the Capitol. Instead, the evidence is purported to be that they were at the same place, at the same time, followed a crowd into the open doors of the Capitol building, then walked out. They didn’t take anything, they didn’t break anything.”Cudd was among rioters raiding the U.S. Capitol Building on Jan. 6, after then-President Donald Trump continued to lie that he actually won the 2020 presidential election. The invaders postponed but did not prevent Congress for counting electoral college votes weighing in favor of the real winner, President Joe ... https://lawandcrime.com/u-s-capitol-siege/texas-florist-who-admitted-to-being-in-pelosis-office-wants-case-moved-from-d-c-because-of-cancel-culture/

Slaughterhouse Workers Can Now Get Free Job Training to Become Florists - VegNewsWednesday, March 31, 2021
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), sent a letter to Kim Cordova, president of labor union United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7, urging her to encourage workers to become florists in light of the ongoing pandemic and offering for PETA to pay for the necessary job training to make the transition. “Working on the kill floor is a dangerous, dirty, dead-end job,” Newkirk said. “PETA is happy to help budding flower arrangers flee the meat industry for the sake of animals and their own mental health.” Last week, a number of meat companies closed slaughterhouses as an increasing number of workers became infected with COVID-19—a disease thought to have originated from a wet animal market, not dissimilar from a slaughterhouse, in Wuhan, China late last year. Smithfield shuttered its Sioux Falls, SD pig slaughterhouse after 230 workers tested positive, Cargill closed its meat-packaging plant near Hazleton, PA, after reporting 130 positive cases, and JBS temporarily shut down its beef slaughterhouse in Souderton, PA after 17 workers tested positive.Love the plant-based lifestyle as much as we do?Get the BEST vegan recipes, travel, celebrity interviews, product picks, and so much more inside every issue of VegNews Magazine.

10 Best Spring Flowers to Plant of Display - Gotham MagazineWednesday, March 31, 2021
Tulips grow best with full or afternoon sun and water weekly. The tulip planting process begins in November, so if you want a simple but beautiful display, your best bet is to stop by your nearest florist.DaffodilsDaffodils are an easy perennial flower grown in most regions of North America, excepting the hottest and most humid. If planting, begin in the winter so blooms can arrive at the start of spring. Water when the weather is dry. If kept in a vase, they should be kept alone, as their stems release a liquid that can wilt other flowers. We recommend a bouquet of golden ducat, petit four and rip van winkle - all types of daffodils.HyacinthsKnown for their intense fragrance and bright colors, Hyacinths are the perfect spring flower. They do well in full sun and require frequent watering if there's no regular rain. They come in a wide variety of colors, from Blue Jacket, to blue-purple, Carnegie, pure white, City of Haarlem, buttery yellow, Delft Blue, soft blue, Jan Bos and fuchsia.ForsythiaBelonging to the olive family, Forsythia are low-maintenance flowering shrubs that grow quickly in an upright, arching form. They can grow to be up to 10 feet tall, so if planting, choose your spot wisely. Forsythia grow best with at least six hours of direct sun and moderately moist soil, so only water if experiencing a drought.RhododendronRhododendrons are often tubular, funnel or bell-shaped and very fragrant. These beauties do well in climates with adequate rainfall and moist springs and summers, so water pretty frequently if you live in a dry area. Place your rhododendrons in a slightly shaded area, but avoid deep shade or full sun.See also: The 5 Best Yoga Mats to Unroll in 2021PeoniesPeonies typically loom from late spring to early summer, depending on your location and variety.
