Valentine’s Day Along with Longevity


Chocolates for Valentine’s Day may be gifts from the heart but most are not healthy for the heart… or any part of the body.

The cocoa in Valentine chocolates, could actually be healthy if it were not for the many other ingredients you usually find even in expensive brands.

Here is what to look for.  You will usually find high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils and soy Lecithin derived from GMO soy made with hexane, which is removed but particles may be left behind.  Hexane is a neurotoxin and carcinogen.

You’ll also usually find vanillin, a substitute for vanilla.  Vanillin is made (I could hardly believe this so I researched it quite a bit) by the action of pouring chloroform on a constituent of wood tar creosote.

In addition many chocolates have artificial colors including Red 40, Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 that contain benzidine, a carcinogen and PGPR that replaces cocoa butter and is made from castor beans.  TBHQ is another toxic preservative in some chocolates.   Other ingredients you may find that have raised some health concerns include Potassium Sorbate, Carrageenan and Sorbitol.

Maybe it’s better to give health and longevity as a gift from the heart for the heart.  Why not express your love to your Valentine this year by giving gifts that enhance rather than disrupt longevity!   Here are ideas about products you won’t read anywhere else.

One idea  is a brand new book “The Ageless Boomer” just released by our friends, Jim Vigue and Dr. Joy Macci.  One disclosure, I am prejudiced as I contributed one chapter.  This is an important book to read, especially for Boomers.

Another gift that’s great with a red ribbon around it is Purely Green.

Purely Green

Purely Green, a bio degradable non-mutagenic cleaner that can replace most poison cleaning chemicals normally kept in American homes.  Purely Green can also remove toxins and pesticides from fruit and vegetables.  Learn more about detoxifying food with Organic Purely Green here.

The book, “The Secret of the Ring Muscles” is also a healthy gift.

Secret of the ring muscles

“The Secret of Ring Muscles” teaches easy to do exercises that you can do while driving your car or watching TV.  This simplicity can have profoundly positive impact on natural health and longevity.

What can be a better gift from the heart than heart health?  Here are Omega 3 and Vitality based food supplements which we use that enhance heart health. Learn more about the heart benefits of Omega 3 here.

All of these products are covered in our Natural Health Report described below.

Or of course, don’t forget….send roses!

How the Hogberry Helps With COVID-19

Gain Amazing Health Benefits with the Hogberry

Research is showing that excess body fat can complicate the risks of COVID-19.

A recent article in USA Today, “As obesity’s link to COVID-19 grows, one family that lost 24-year-old daughter diets together” (1) tells the tale.

The article says:  The parents and two brothers of Silvia Deyanira Melendez, 24, are all in therapy after losing their daughter and sister to COVID-19 on March 28.  She weighed more than 300 pounds with a body mass index of 60, double the BMI considered obese. This most likely contributed heavily to her Type 2 diabetes, hypertension and a heart condition that required open-heart surgery two years ago.

The chronic conditions that increase the risk of serious illness and death of COVID-19 are now well known: diabetes, heart disease, hypertension and being older than 65. Obesity is less well known or understood. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention groups “severe obesity,” defined as having a BMI of 40 or higher, with the other known “risk factors for serious illness” for COVID-19.

A growing number of studies and data on COVID-19 deaths confirm the link. The extra weight on people in the 40-plus BMI range who contract COVID-19 increases the chance they will require hospitalization, most likely in the intensive care unit. It also hampers the ability of physicians to treat them, especially with ventilators, doctors say.

Body fat complicates many health problems.   For example more than 100 studies have found that physical activity can lower cancer risk and even help cure cancer.  Fortunately researchers asked why and one answer became clear. Body fat.

Studies showed that reduced body fat creates  a 25% lower chance of developing cancer.

Fortunately there is a little known way to reduce body fat that does not even require exercise.? I’ll share more on this secret in a moment.

First, body fat, COVID-19 and cancer? Let’s ask why?

Part of the answer is toxicity.

Healthy bodies naturally and regularly remove water-soluble toxins from the body. Our blood and kidneys flush them away.

Fat-soluble toxins such as metals, pesticides, preservatives, other pollutants are harder to flush out of the system. Fat-soluble toxins must become water-soluble before the body can get rid of them. The liver can do this conversion (bile emulsifies fat-souble toxins into water-soluble). This process requires healthy digestive and detox pathways. When they become imbalanced, fat-soluble toxins are stored in fat cells and brain cells instead. These toxins can remain for decades and create health problems.

The fat stored toxins cause oxidation (free radical damage) and degeneration as well as mutation. Toxins in the fatty tissue of the brain become neurotoxins that can cause cognitive problems and a host of mental and brain imbalances.

Burn Fat to Burn Toxins

When you burn fat you turn on the body’s detox fuel.  Fat metabolism is the body’s natural form of energy. Fat metabolism provides a more steady energy than glucose metabolism and flushes fat cells free of toxins. As the toxicity drops, the nervous system has reduced stress and will naturally burn fat instead of sugar.

This is why I have written a short report entitled “The FAST Way to Better Health” that features a special tea that can help reduce body fat.

The Key is in the Hogberry

I would like to send you a report “The FAST Way to Better Health” that reveals the secret of the Hogberry, FREE when you order my three Natural Health reports described below.

This reoort is only available with my three Natural Health Reports.

These three reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

In this special offer I want to send you a special report on how you can gain better natural health with the hogberry along with three other reports that reveal secrets of health and longevity.

The Commonwealth Fund in its latest survey on overall health care ranked US healthcare dead last compared to 10 major countries.  Despite being worst, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, New York Times have all warned about huge, increasingly costly, health care changes.  There are enormous problems in hospitals and chances are they are going to get worse, with the added complication of COVID-19.

When it comes to health care, we may well be on our own. The very people, institutions and establishments that we should rely on may actually hurt rather than help our health.

Ancient health wisdom accumulated around the world, over the millennia, can fill the gap.

The way to escape the dangers of high cost, deteriorating health care, is to not need it.  Declare health independence… and create natural good health. There are dozens of simple, really low costs steps that can improve health… eating, purification, exercise, even the way we think and don’t think when we sleep.

Ancient health wisdom from around the world can help us reduce our risks of poor health care and help us fight the ever rising costs.

For nearly 50 years my wife Merri and I have lived and worked around the world. During this time, we checked out just about every source on natural health care. We even  spent years living with natural health care insiders, and trying the lessons they offered.

We took thousands of readers to Ecuador, met with shamans in the Andes and Amazon. We helped other readers visit India and also learn great health care ideas from China and beyond.

Since not everyone can go to Ecuador or travel the world, we have created three Natural Health Reports that can help improve the power that your body has.  These reports are concise and to the point. In 15 minutes the first report shows exactly how to start preparing for better health and more energy.

We do not have to depend on the health care and health insurance monopolies for better natural health… or cave into a healthcare system that can put us at risk and charge outrageous prices at the same time.

Our health reports provide information on how to use ancient health care systems to become more healthy, self sufficient – providing our own good health.

The first report is “Sunski?”, the Andean word for good eating, for maximum nutrition and purification.

We started the series with eating because so many of our readers have found that a blend of Indian and Andean shamanic nutrition helped them kick start their health with weight trimming.

Good eating is the first step towards natural health. The first rule of good health is getting the correct nutrition.  The second step is purification of toxins and eating to avoid getting impurities in our body in the first place!

Sunski is a way to eat that strengthens and purifies as it stops adding toxicity from eating.  Yet Sunski is a delicious, healthy “self defined” cleansing process.  One chapter in Sunski shows how to correct a simple mistake that most of the Western population makes which increases the chances of adding and retaining weight by 84%.

Sunski combines lessons about healthy eating that we learned from years of working with all types of Western healers, ayurvedic health masters and then living with an Ecuador Taita Yatchak and his apprentices.

We lived, worked, farmed, cooked and ate with this Taita Yatchak for years while learning “Sunski”.

shaman

The “Sunski” report was 50 years and millions of miles of travel in the making.

We’ve invested thousands of hours into learning the skills of health self-reliance and resilience, identifying the best foods and combinations and sifted through loads of seeming contradictions to get to the facts about “do it yourself” longevity and natural health.

But that wasn’t enough – not when our good health was on the line. So we consulted dozens of top professions who know a lot about natural health. We spoke with holistic MDs, osteopaths, chiropractors, Indian vidyas, Andean yatchaks, and other self-reliant natural health experts who live a naturally healthy path every day.

Don’t let the simplicity fool you… years of research went into these reports.

And we only kept the best of the best: this system is complete – and FAST to learn – so you can get started immediately.

We all need to stay out of hospitals and reduce our exposure to modern medical risks and costs.

Why re-invent the wheel? Especially when time is NOT on our side.? We’ve already done the hard work for you pulling together the information so you can create better natural, good health.

Imagine… never worrying about what you eat and reducing the risks of hospitalization and health care’s outrageous costs.

A few of the life balancing nutritional tips include how to:

#1: Eat a balance of fat, carbohydrates and protein.

#2: Eat combinations of food for ideal digestion.

#3: Eat in good spirits at the right times of day while chewing in a special way.

This report includes a complete list of EZ to use recipes that will immediately improve your short term energy… and your long term natural health – so that you never have to guess what foods you need (or rely on the health care establishment).

quinoa pancakes

One of the recipes is for high protein Chocolate Quinoa Pancakes.

Recipes include:

  • Carrot Cake Quinoa Brownie with Stevia
  • Thermos Quinoa Kichiri
  • High Protein Veggie Almond Savory Cottage Pie
  • Mild Turmeric Curry
  • Low Carb Quinoa Tapioca Crumble
  • Merri’s Blackberry Crumble with Quinoa and Stevia
  • Merri’s Quinoa Strawberry Shortcake
  • Merri’s Quinoa Corn Bread
  • Merri’s Quinoa Corn Bread Dressing
  • Quinoa Risotto With Arugula and Parmesan
  • Timbal of Quinoa topped with Ginger or Parmesan Cheese
  • Quinoa Gazpacho With a Sherbert of Coriander
  • Quinoa Taboleh
  • Mango Quinoa Salad
  • Quinoa Avocado Curry

All of these recipes are in “Sunski” just one of the three natural health reports.

These recipes are easy to make, delicious to eat, inexpensive but balanced and healthy foods prepared in ways that provide nutrition and purification.

Learn how nutritional secrets can help keep you out of the hospital.

Here are a few facts and health tools you gain:

  • The single biggest constraint you’ll face in your eating habits? – and how you can eliminate it by adding two simple recipes to your Sunski system.
  • How to calculate exactly how much food you need so you don’t over or under build your nutritional plan.
  • A simple solution for making sure that your food delivers what your body needs when you need it.
  • What components you can choose for yourself and how to avoid mass diets that seem to work for every one except you.
  • The best long term solution for avoiding sugar.
  • Use sweet spices to compensate for stress.
  • Specific types of unique spices that give you the biggest energy bang for your buck.
  • Spices that cleanse and purify.
  • Three changes in your fruit consumption that is a critical component for long term purification.
  • The best times to eat specific foods.
  • How to direct different foods to different parts of the body.
  • Three teas that add a resilience to your natural health system that are easy to make and enjoy at home at a low cost.
  • Why it is good (in fact almost a requirement) to sometimes eat junk food.

All of this information is in “Sunski” the first of the three natural health reports.

These reports focus on how to have good natural health so you can remain independent and avoid costly medical care.

The second report shows you how to purify and detoxify existing poisons that have accumulated in your system.

The third report is about exercise… but not the type you would think.

Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles

This third report unveils one exercise that energizes and coordinates the digestive system by exercising a set of key muscles, not while you are in a gym, but when you eat!  The body has a number of key muscles that regulate breathing, digestion, circulation, elimination and muscular motion.

The third report reveals an exercise you can do at the dinner table to energize these muscles which in turn coordinate every other muscle and organ in the body. Eating in this way for example (most of the modern world does not) energizes just one key muscle that regulates part of our ability to burn sugars and fat.

The report looks at oxygenation, coordination, purification, energy boosting, education, occupation and relaxation.

Healthy Eating Made EZ: Gain delicious, power packed weight reducing recipes from easy to obtain products from super market foods. Coddle Yourself Egg-High Protein Country Cottage Pie-Low Carb-Veggie Chile & Spaghetti- Weightless Bread-High Mountain Pure Protein Quinoa-Better Oatmeal of Steel- Several Soups for Super Strength-Berry Good Crunch Treat and Waist Less Apple Crumble are just a few.

Exercise for Strength and Better Health.  Medicine is dose. Too much exercise is as bad or worse as not enough. Learn how to let comfort be your exercise guide. Move with momentum-some exercises activate all muscles and provide the benefit of leverage, momentum and convenience so 12 minutes of exercise a day is enough. Blend body and mind-Alpha exercises take you into the zone so you win from the inside out.  Spin and bend-blend exercise secrets from India, the Andes and the East for easy and better health.? The Gentle Touch-if you have to breathe through the mouth you have done too much.

Here is what others have said about this information:

Though I ate more than ever, my weight dropped and I lost two inches off my waist.” – S.H. Oregon

The life path altering effects from the weekend with you and Merri continue. Thank you again. I have begun to change my diet. Bless you!” – D.B. Connecticut

You are indeed a spiritual pioneer, blending disciplines to create tools and resources for success in this new land of opportunity.  Anyone who thinks this is just all about money is missing the real message: This is about life in its most profound implications.” – W.P. Australia

I want to thank you for the wonderful time. I travailed from California to hear you convey your knowledge in the way you do so well, and I wasn’t disappointed.  The amount of information in the sessions was almost overwhelming, but it’s exactly what I went to hear.” – B.R. California

The technical information I gathered was most not new to me, but I like to compliment you for putting it all in the right perspective and to make it very understandable to all.  What was at our opinion one of the most important gaining of these 3 days is the opening of the new world, this new circle of what you call ‘normal’ people! (I call us ‘not normal’ as a matter of respect to the majority.)  But as we know, all is relative and depends at the point of view of each, His spiritual mind and his opinion about the senses of our being.” – E.V. Florida

People who, among other things, are active and productive and creative and resourceful, whose word can be counted upon; People who realize that spirituality DOES NOT mean sitting in a cave contemplating your navel and weaving baskets, nor does it equate in the Western culture with living in abject poverty.  People who realize that abundance is not a dirty word. People who understand that we are here to ENGAGE life, not to submit to circumstances out of fear and ignorance and apathy; People who don’t just use the most current ‘buzz words’ so they can feel like they are part of the group, but who actually DO something… Builders. Thank you for showing up in my life.” – E.W. Nevada

Good health is the most important asset in stressful times. Beyond the fact that modern health intervention (ie. hospital) can destroy one’s finances, being in good health brings the energy and balance required to make sound investing and business decisions.

When you order the three shamanic health reports that normally sell for $19.95 each, you save $19.95 plus get the report on the Hogberry free.

More important you learn how to feel better almost from the very first day.? Reduce stress, gain smooth steady energy without 10:30 am and 3:00 pm droops. Find out how to avoid being hungry right after you eat and how to make the cravings for sweets and junk food all but disappear.

I will send you this report “The FAST Way to Better Health” that reveals the secret of the Hogberry, FREE when you order my three Natural Health reports.

This is the only way to attain this report as it is not for sale or available to the general public.

As with all my reports and courses, satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back.  I want to be sure that the information in “The FAST Way to Better Health” works for you. The valuable knowledge you’ll gain in these reports works better when the nutrition, purification and exercise reports are combined so I have made this special offer.

Order all three Natural Health Reports worth $59.85 for $39.90 and save $19.95.

Order all three Natural Health Reports worth $59.85 for $39.90 and save $19.95.   Plus get the report “The Fast Way to Better Health” and our 60 day, full satisfaction or full, no questions asked, refund.

A reader sent this note:  We ordered 100 roses thru Gary and Merri Scott to be delivered to our present address in California for distribution among eight ladies in the family.  The flowers arrived Tuesday, two days before the holiday just as promised by Fed-Ex. They were tightly packed in four bunches of 25 each.  They were divided into 7 dozen + 16 that ended up with my bride of 41 years. Normally with local U.S. roses one cuts the stems at a sharp angle on the bottom and stores them in the refrigerator for a couple days. The roses from Ecuador have stems on them over four feet long. These long stemmed beauties cannot fit into any domestic refrig. that I know of. Place them loosely packed into deep heavy vases full of fresh cold water and the buds open into the largest blooms you have ever seen. Change the water often enough and they will look beautiful for over two weeks. We nursed ours along for three weeks.  Jump in, – the water is fine. You will be glad that you did.

Take time to smell the roses and be good to yourself.

100 red roses arrive at our home.

Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people. We also love Ecuador’s beauty.  When an opportunity to send Ecuador roses and raise money for the poor occurred earlier this year, we grabbed the chance.

The first time I wrote about Ecuador roses, we made a special offer and sold over 20,000 roses that raised $8,000 to help Ecuador’s poor. The money was used to provide schooling for gifted indigenous children, to buy an InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children and help repair an Ecuadorian school.  Since then our rose sales have been helping send Ecuador children to universities.

There and then I decided to continually offer Ecuador roses.

The roses your receive are certified by Veriflora. The VERIFLORA seal is a real, green program that regularly spot check farms for ecologically sound systems that include:

1- Water and ecological conservation: implementing water management systems to prevent depletion of fresh water supplies.

2- Product quality: implementing practices to ensure the quality of the product through the whole chain of delivery to the final consumer.

3- Advanced agricultural practices: integrating organic practices wherever possible. To only use approved green label certified pesticides. To allow no discharge of pesticides run off into the environment.

4- Waste management: recycling and composting as well as the proper disposal of agricultural chemicals.

By March of 2007 the co-op that sends your roses had certified 144 acres.

Certification means the growers have met or exceeded the requirements. There is no middle ground with Veriflora, no differing levels of certification. You either are ecologically sound and certified, or you aren’t.

That means you receive environmentally friendly roses.

Here are some of my roses.  Compare that head size to anything you see in a store!

Just in case… the world goes sideways… we will still survive and prosper.

We do not give up anything much.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from what can be bad.

For example in my report “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere”,  you’ll see how to make your dining room table bring you more control, more time, more income and more freedom.  After all, what can be more accessible than a dining room table?

ecuador-banks

Dining room tables we worked from (and we also sold the tables for a profit).

You’ll even learn how to turn dining room tables into income and tax deductions as we have with these dining room tables we build out of local wood.

Let me be clear.  I expect that the world will get better, at least for the few who adapt and avoid the dangers that the changes from the COVID pandemic will bring. 

The wealth of the world, albeit with inequality, will continue to grow.  This collapse of the global economy will bring an incredible new opportunity for those who know what to do.  Thes profit making avenues offer enormous income potential and even work well in disaster scenarios.

Let me provide one simple, concrete example.  Ginseng.

This is a great health root.  The demand is growing especially in China.  At times good dried Ginseng sells for $1,000 a pound!  This is an incredible and easy crop to grow.   The less care you give it, the more valuable it can become.  Yet if everything goes south, the health qualities will be good to have and make it an excellent barter item.  Once you know what to do with ginseng, it’s easy to grow in your back yard.

Even better one of the best kept secrets is that ginseng and 125 other medicinal crops that are currently unsustainable but can be grown on land  that is extraordinarily cheap.

goldenseal ginseng

Ginseng we grew in our back yard.  I know about growing ginseng through experience and explain why and how in the report “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere”.

Loquats are another example of an easy to grow crop that help promote natural health.

loquats

Here I am by one of the many loquat trees at our Florida farm.

Loquats are a great fruit for making jam and such, but the loquat leaf has amazing medicinal qualities.  Its is a registered medicine in China and due to its anti viral and respiratory system enhancing qualities has an especially  growing demand right now.   The images below from Amazon.com show that the leaves sell for about a dollar per leaf!

I have many trees on the farm but started growing loquat seedlings last year.

loquat

Loquat leaf tea has become really important during the pandemic due to its respiratory strengthening qualities.

I have been drinking a lot of home made loquat leaf tea during the pandemic.

The report “Live Anywere-Earn Everywhere” shows specific places that reduce your living expenses, easily increases your income, makes you smarter, healthier and provides tax benefits as well. 

There are specific places where property is especially inexpensive, now because previous owners do not know about the special qualities created by the pandemic.

Learn about these specific places.  More important learn what makes these places special and seven freedom producing steps that you can use to find other similar spots of opportunity.

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

The report includes a tax and career plan broken into four age groups, before you finish school, from age 25 to 50 – age 50-to 65 and what to do when you reach the age where tradition wants you to re-tire.  (Another clue-you do not need to retire and probably should not).

The report is very specific because it is about what Merri and I, our children and even my sister and thousands of our readers have done and are doing.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere focuses on a system that takes advantage of living in Smalltown USA, but earning globally.

  • Learn about the magic of the north facing slope.   This is where Merri and I live almost half of our time.  North facing mountain land is some of the least expensive in the world but has hidden values that the report reveals.  There is a lot of this land and a lot of hidden value that you can tap.   When we bought our Blue Ridge farm (252 acres) I mentioned this to my Swiss banking friend.  “That’s bigger than the entire village where I live!” was his response.  Smalltown USA offers a last chance at having a lot of space.  By living in two Smalltown places there are enormous tax advantages as well.  One step in the system saves Merri and me over $28,345 in taxes a year.

The report shows how to buy cheap north facing slopes and create an income producing tiny home for $29,000 or less.

If you lack the $29,000 to invest, a start up using tents is even less.  These are tipis we put up at our farm before we built our first tiny home.  Learn how they can create tens of thousands of dollars in income for you.

Fwd: gary-scott-tipis

  • See ways that small businesses like Tipi rentals can be enhanced by the pandemic but also create BIG tax savings as well as extra income.  For more than 30 years Merri and I have enjoyed a strong six figure income, some years more, in the millions.  Yet there have been very few years when we had to pay federal income tax.  The report lays out a three structure program and how it is used when you are in school (up to age 30), then from 25 to 50, 50 to 70  and beyond 70.   Learn why Chapter C corporations and pensions can be better than the normally recommended Chapter S.  See how new mileage log rules gives you a possible opportunity to increase your tax deductions using IRS Form 4562.  Using a two-vehicle strategy you can gain $12,976 in new deductions even if you do not have to drive one mile further or spend one additional penny on your car.
  • See how a greenhouse can help you eat better and be healthier, plus provide income and a tax deduction and be funded by a government grant.

gary-scott-farming

Our North Carolina greenhouse.

Our Florida greenhouse.

  • There are similar benefits from having a second home office defined in IRS publication 463 and IRS publication 587, even if your desk is a dining room table.  The report also shows how your dining room table can become an actual income producer as its creates a huge tax deduction at the same time, not to mention a great place to eat, work and lay out plans for a brighter, safer more lucrative and enjoyable future.
  • Living in this environment is also healthier, economically as well as physically.  You’ll see in the report how researchers at Harvard found an amazing correlation between living in conditions found on north facing slopes, longevity and mental health.  The researchers were quite surprised by this strong correlation that also extended into mental health.  In addition to feeling better, reducing stress and having more Joie de Vivre the places outlined in “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere” can help you avoid hospitals, high cost disease management (aka health care) and BIG pharma while providing an investment opportunity in three plants that have some of the fastest growing demand in natural health care.  These three plants are just one of seven business opportunities that can create multiple streams of income.
  • How changes in cell phone and internet technology eliminated the need to be in one place.   An old law that creates new opportunity for small business in small towns is available to everyone.
  • Use the specific search and purchase guide.  Construction plans are included that show how to generate first tier income that leads to five, second tier avenues of earnings.
  • How to pay off old debt and avoid new debt by avoiding spurts and embracing value. 
  • Learn seven skills that will always have value.  See how to turn First Aid, medicinal plants, hospitality, food, trees, alternate energy and writing to sell into everlasting, low stress wealth.

This pond we created at our farm brought us pleasure but also helped create a safe, healthy food supply, extra income and a tax deduction as well.

Ecuador Christmas Roses

Ecuador fresh cut Christmas Roses can be ordered from now until cut-off time Monday, December 19, at 11:59 AM EST.  Delivery of your Ecuador Christmas roses is Thursday, December 22nd, 2016.

Ecuador roses have extra large heads that open fully.

You can have 25, 50 or 100 fresh cut (four days) roses from Ecuador delivered to any zip code in the USA…including Hawaii or Alaska.

Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people. We also love Ecuador’s beauty.  When an opportunity to send Ecuador roses and raise money for the poor occurred, we grab the chance.

I wrote about the roses, made a special offer and sold over 15,000 roses that raised $6,000 to help Ecuador’s poor. The money was used to provide schooling for gifted indigenous children and to buy an InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children that the foundation provided.

So when a chance to offer Ecuador roses regularly, I thought, “Why not?”

There and then I decided to make a special offer.  Here it is.

The cost of roses, and especially delivery, has been rising, but we still offer four ways to get fresh cut roses to your home at really low rates and help create employment in Ecuador in the process.

I regret that Fedex cannot deliver the roses in Canada or elsewhere outside the USA.

Fedex will deliver them to you within four days of being cut in Ecuador.  Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the Fedex driver and let me know.  We’ll give you a full refund.

To assure the refund you must inspect the flowers with Fedex when they are delivered.  If you are not satisfied, they must be returned at the time of delivery.

There are four ways to obtain 25, 50 or 100 fresh cut roses and save.

25 farm choice $80.00

50 farm choice $90.00

100 farm choice $140.00

Or 25 red + 25 white $99.00

Red and…

Colors come in batches of 25.  Orders of 25 have one color. Orders of 50 have two colors. Orders of 100 have four colors.

This is a batch of 100 fresh Ecuador roses that Merri and I enjoyed.

To order, click on your choice above.  Your order will be taken to our flower supplier who will follow your order from the farm to your home.  He will first email you a Fedex or UPS tracking number to coordinate your delivery time.

Unless otherwise arranged, and subject to weather permitting, Fedex or UPS will deliver your roses to you or your recipient on Thursday, December 22nd, 2016.

Premium Quality Roses

I inspected all the major websites offering roses and found when shipping was calculated, prices ranged from $259 to $135 for 50 roses from the best ranked websites.  These prices are far above ours because this is a service Merri and I offer to our readers and the people of Ecuador.  We are not in the rose business and don’t have to add markups.

Fresher Quality Roses

You do not give up quality for the lower price.  In fact the quality of your roses rises.

Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air are stored in Miami then shipped by truck until they sit in a store. They can be a week or more old when you see them. The roses you receive from this offer are cut and stored overnight, driven by refrigerated truck to Quito Airport and flown to Miami to a special refrigerated Fedex facility then flown to your Fedex destination for immediate delivery to your home or office. This means they last longer.

The longevity of the roses depends on the conditions they are kept and their care so a special instruction is included with your roses on how to make them last.

Here are some of my previous roses.  The head size is much larger than anything you see in a store and fresh Ecuador roses last much longer.

There are four ways to obtain 25, 50 or 100 fresh cut roses and save.

25 farm choice $80.00

50 farm choice $90.00

100 farm choice $140.00

Or 25 red + 25 white $99.00

Environmentally Clean Roses

The roses you receive are certified by Veriflora. The VERIFLORA seal is a real,
green program that regularly spot check farms for ecologically sound systems that include:

1- Water and ecological conservation: implementing water management systems to prevent depletion of fresh water supplies.

2- Product quality: implementing practices to ensure the quality of the product through the whole chain of delivery to the final consumer.

3- Advanced agricultural practices: integrating organic practices wherever possible. To only use approved green label certified pesticides. To allow no discharge of pesticides run off into the environment.

4- Waste management: recycling and composting as well as the proper disposal of agricultural chemicals.

Certification means the growers have met or exceeded the requirements. There is no middle ground with Veriflora, no differing levels of certification. You either are ecologically sound and certified, or you aren’t.

That means you receive environmentally friendly roses.

We use fresh Ecuador roses at home and in business.

Certification means the growers have met or exceeded the requirements. There is no middle ground with Veriflora, no differing levels of certification. You either are ecologically sound and certified, or you aren’t.

That means you receive environmentally friendly roses.

We use fresh Ecuador roses at home and in business.

We make our roses last a very long time because after they begin to wilt, we dry our fresh Ecuador roses as they age and continue to use them. Here are 100 dried Ecuador roses on our stair case in North Carolina.

Roses from Ecuador Help Earthquake Victims


Your Order of Fresh Long Stem Ecuador roses can help victims of Ecuador’s earthquake.

After the earthquake in Ecuador, we created a special program for Mother’s Day that donated all our proceeds from Ecuador rose sales to the Red Cross in Ecuador.   Mother’s Day rose sales created $700 in donations that we would normally have received.   In addition, many buyers added a $10 or $20 donation amounting to an additional $210 or a total of  $910 was donated to the Red Cross.  There was also an additional $120 donated to another organization at a donor’s request.  As you can see below, that money will go a long way.

Now we have a more specific program available through our friend and attorney, Floridalva Zambrano.  We have worked with Flori for more than ten years and have found her to be a wonderful, trustworthy, caring person,

Flori has worked with the Country Assistance Strategy (CAS for 20 years) and they have a way that contributions can be made in in a very specific way, so donors can monitor and have the opportunity to evaluate and even get in contact with the people they are helping.  The target population to be assisted are in Portoviejo, Manta, Bahía, San Vicente, Canoa, Pedernales, San Isidro, El Carmen.  These are amoung the areas hardest hit by the earthquake.  Floridalva’s church has congregations in all of these locations and can coordinate things through the leaders, pastors and congregation members in those areas.  She  strongly encourages donors to channel their help through the Alliance Metropolitan Temple, which administration is subject to a national organization audit.

There are two ways to help.  The first is to order Ecuador roses.  Our flower provider will make a donation of $20 for each order to the the Alliance Metropolitan Temple and inform Floridalva.

The second way is to contact Floridalva Zambrano direct at FLORIFLORI58@YAHOO.ES

You can see more details about the Ecuador Relief Program by clicking here.

Here is how to order the roses.

ecuador-mother's-day-Roses

These fresh roses will be delivered to your doorstep by UPS or Fedex, anywhere in the USA.  A contribution to the Ecuador Country Assistance Strategy will be made for each order.

Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people.  We also love Ecuador’s beauty.  When an opportunity to send Ecuador roses and raise money for the poor some years ago, we grabbed the chance.

I wrote about the roses, made a special offer and sold over 5,000 roses that raised $2,000 that helped Ecuador’s poor.  The money was used to provide schooling for gifted indigenous children and to buy an InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children.

So we offered Ecuador roses again and sold over 9,000 roses raising another $3,660!

This last Mother’s Day, 2016 offer Merri and I have asked our flower supplier, Roberto Ribadeneira, to pay $20 per sale to the Red Cross account set up to help with earthquake relief.

Now we are continuing this program for regular rose purchases.

This is not a deal that helps our pocketbooks.  We are donating all our rose sale proceeds to help the relief in Ecuador.  The cause is worthy.  Merri and I will share the joy of the gifts you help make… a wonderful gift of the most beautiful roses and help to those shattered by the earthquake in Ecuador.

I regret that UPS and Fedex cannot deliver the roses in Canada or elsewhere outside the USA.

UPS or Fedex will deliver.  Open them.  If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the UPS or Fedex driver and let me know.  I’ll get you a full refund.  To assure the refund you must inspect the flowers with the driver when they are delivered.  If you are not satisfied, they must be returned at the time of delivery.  (Refunds cannot be made if the roses are delivered and the UPS delivery person departs.)

To order, click on your choice.  Roberto Ribadeneira, the rose plantation coordinator, will place and follow your orders from the farm to your home.  He will email you a UPS or Fedex tracking number the week of delivery so you can coordinate the UPS delivery time.

Unless otherwise arranged, and subject to weather permitting, UPS or Fedex will deliver your roses to you on the next Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday if your order arrives by Saturday.

Premium Quality Roses

Your roses will be long stemmed… long lasting…. large petaled and… vibrant!  You can find nothing like this in regular stores.

Some of Ecuador roses delivered last year.

Though this is perhaps the lowest price for fresh cut, hand delivered roses you will see, the roses are special, not like anything offered in a store or even at most florists.

Fresher Quality Roses

Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air and are stored in Miami then shipped by truck until they sit in a store. They can be a week or more old when you see them. The roses you receive from  this offer are cut and stored overnight, driven by refrigerated trucks to Quito Airport and flown to Miami to a special refrigerated UPS facility then flown to your UPS destination for immediate delivery to your home or office. This means they last longer.

These are premium roses with extra large heads that open fully.  When properly cared for, they remain beautiful for 9 to 14 days.  Merri and I then take them off the stems and enjoy them in a bowl for up to another week like this.

Environmentally Clean Roses

The roses your receive are certified by Veriflora. The VERIFLORA seal is a real, green program that regularly spot checks farms for ecologically sound systems that include:

1- Water and ecological conservation: implementing water management systems to prevent depletion of fresh water supplies.

2- Product quality: implementing practices to ensure the quality of the product through the whole chain of delivery to the final consumer.

3- Advanced agricultural practices: integrating organic practices wherever possible. To only use approved green label certified pesticides. To allow no discharge of pesticides run off into the environment.

4- Waste management: recycling and composting as well as the proper disposal of agricultural chemicals.

By March of 2007 the co-op that sends your roses had certified 144 acres.

Certification means the growers have met or exceeded the requirements. There is no middle ground with Veriflora, no differing levels of certification. You either are ecologically sound and certified, or you aren’t.

That means you receive environmentally friendly roses.

Here are red fresh Ecuador roses we had delivered to us.

Earn With Roses – Save Tax Cash


The note below from Roberto Ribadneira shows how to earn with roses.

Ecuador Roses – Export Tour with Roberto

We will have an Ecuador Export Tour in Cotacachi and surrounding areas on November 11-13,2015.   You can learn how to earn exporting Ecuador products including Ecuador premium roses.

Ecuador roses are great income producers because people re-order on a regular basis.  Ecuador premium roses last longer so cost less in hotels, restaurants and country clubs who need to regularly order flowers.   Flower Shops, wedding and event planners also order roses every single week.

Roses are especially effective fundraisers.  Learn how roses can raise money for charities on the export tour.  Learn how to get floral orders through events.  For example, recently a Rotary Club in Texas ordered 10,000 roses for a fundraiser.  The cost for the roses, landed in Texas, was $1.25 per head.  The roses sold for $3.00 per head.  Those roses at that event raised a lot of money for a good cause.  This fund raising event was a huge success because everyone loves roses.  They were happy to contribute because they helped a good cause and the roses still cost less than in many flower shops.

This was a huge event, but roses can raise money on any scale.  People are willing to buy if they know that part of the money coming from the sale is going to a good cause.  When you export fund raising roses, you are not just selling a product, you are contributing and helping people.

Learn ways to raise money without holding an event also.  Another Rotary Club recently created an email program that offers Ecuadorian Roses to their members.  A donation is made to the Rotary Club for every box of roses we ship.

ecuador export roses

Roses shipped for Rotary Club in Texas.

We shipped these roses and made contributions on every box.  This is really efficient.  The orders were sent directly to us from the buyer contributors.   We shipped direct to the buyer and passed on the contributions to the Rotary Club.  We did all the accounting and let Rotary know who bought and how much.  Once the club sent the email, we did all the work.

There is even a way for the buyers to contribute additional money to the Rotary Club, when they make the rose purchase.

Learn how to work with the fund raisers and us so once the fund raisers contact the members, we do the rest. All you and the fund raiser have to do is collect your payment.

Here is an example of how Ecuador exports and email fundraising works.  This week, we launched an email fundraiser for the Rotary Club in Quito, Ecuador with a rose promotion.  Here is the email the Rotary Club sent.

Buy Roses and contribute to Rotary Club Quito Norte.

The Rotary Club in Quito helps poor communities around Puerto Quito, Mindo, Puerto Rico and other small towns in the province of Pichincha in Ecuador.  Our Club buys and installs water treatment systems that make water drinkable.  This mainly helps children at school to be able to drink the water without getting sick.

ecuador export roses

The beneficiaries of the last project (which had the help of Rotary Clubs around the USA), helped 8,450 people in 4 different towns and 4 schools. The number of students that benefited were 764 children.  The total investment on the project was USD $54,752.

We would like to help raise funds for the next water treatment project by offering Ecuador premium roses.  For every box of roses that are ordered, there is a $10.00 contribution to the Rotary Club in Ecuador, plus if you wish you can add another $10.00 to the project.

ecuador export roses

Your rose order helps in so many ways. You help Ecuador as a whole by getting FAIR TRADE ROSES, which comply with the highest of international standards.  The farms that grow the roses provide health care, competitive salaries, free meals (breakfast and lunch), sports facilities, technology classes and transportation for the workers.  They are certified by, FAIRTRADE, Global G.A.P., BASC and Flor Ecuador.

You also help Rotary Club Quito Norte in Ecuador to raise funds and can even match the donation.  You help the children of Ecuador in our areas get new water systems that improve their quality of life.

Plus you bring the joy of a roses beauty into your life and everyone who visits your office or home.

Gain Huge Tax Benefits

Learn how to use fund raisers and charity events to save tax cash.   There are innumerable tax benefits that are created by your own micro business.   Business and charity can create even great tax savings as this note from Conrad Oertwig our tax preparer shows.

Conrad wrote:  “Ask yourself this: Could a $300 charitable event ticket produce a bigger tax deduction than a $300 business meal with a client?   In both cases, you spend $300.

“Here’s the answer and it’s a stunner: the charity sporting event produces double the deduction of the business meal. Double!

“Are you capturing your double deductions? Do you have the following line items set out in your chart of accounts?

“1:  100% business entertainment deductions
“2:  Regular 50% business entertainment deductions

“If not, and if you attend or participate in charitable events, you are missing valuable deductions because you are giving your tax preparer only one category for entertainment.  Worse yet, you might be deducting the charity events as charitable deductions. Yikes!

“Example 1. You buy two tickets to the local American Cancer Society chapter’s golf outing. On the day of the golf outing, you collect your business colleague and the two of you have breakfast at the outing. Over breakfast, you and the colleague discuss new ways of getting more prospects for your businesses. This gives you a business meeting, and now the golf outing qualifies as business entertainment associated with the breakfast discussion. With proper documentation of the cost and business discussion, the entertainment cost of this golf outing qualifies for the 100% deduction.

“Example 2. Everything is the same as in example 1—breakfast discussion and all—but you go as a spectator to a PGA TOUR event that gives 100% of its net proceeds to 501(c)(3) charities. Your cost of the PGA TOUR event is 100% deductible.

“Example 3. Everything is the same as in example 1. The charity sends you a note saying that the fair value of your golf, food, etc., is equal to the amount you paid and you have no charity tax deduction. Smile. You have no problem. The fair value limitation does not apply to business entertainment. Thus, like in example 1, you deduct everything.

“You might ask me: Where does the law say that I can do this? Internal Revenue Code Section 274(l)(1)(B) says that the 50% cut in a business entertainment deduction shall not apply to any ticket for any sports event:

1    which is organized for the primary purpose of benefiting an organization which is described in section 501(c)(3) and exempt from tax under section 501(a),

2    all of the net proceeds of which are contributed to such organization, and

3    which utilizes volunteers for substantially all of the work performed in carrying out such event.

“Events that use volunteers for substantially all the work and donate the net proceeds to charity include, among others:
•    Golf
•    Tennis
•    Skeet shoots
•    Pheasant hunts
•    Fishing tournaments
•    Bowling
•    Marathons
•    Triathlons
•    Ski tournaments”

This example from Conrad is another case where tax knowledge produces cash and just one of seven cases outlined in a report that I am sending to all delegates of our Value Investing Seminar.

Gain ideas on how to have your own micro business for extra income and to save cash on taxes at our October Value Investment Seminar.

Learn Fun & Profitable Tax Secrets

Imagine this, micro businesses are such good ways to create wealth and reduce tax that even cruises can be tax deductible.

Small family owned businesses have some of the best tax benefits.

Micro businesses have huge tax savings using really conservative strategies.

Conrad Oertwig (far right) after a seminar when delegates visit our North Carolina home.

This is why I am delighted that our tax preparer, Conrad Oertwig, who is a master of tax savings information, has agreed to speak at our October 17-18, 2015 Value Investment Seminar.

Conrad Oertwig can assist you on tax matters.  IN FACT THIS FALL, Conrad will be offering a course and personal service on ways that one-person and family business owners can have more cash via tax savings.   Conrad is offering a report on seven ways to put more cash on the table when you earn and is releasing a course on how to save taxes this fall.

Conrad’s report is “7 Secrets to Paying Less Tax… for the One-Owner Business”.  He sent me this note to share with you about the report.

From: Conrad Oertwig

One hard fact of life is that taxes are cash.  It’s a mistake to think of taxes as taxes.  If you want to create more net worth, you need to think of taxes as cash.

How much tax cash are you leaving on the table? Thousands? Tens of thousands?

Here are just three of seven secrets I will share with Gary Scott readers at the October 17-18 Value Investment Seminar and in my report.   Learn how to pay less tax, have more cash, and build your net worth.

Secret # 1: Gain $12,976 by using two vehicles for business.  In the past, your tax adviser likely told you to drive one vehicle for business and the other vehicle for personal purposes. This old advice made it easier to claim the one car as a business car because no business mileage log was required back then. But that’s no longer true.

Today, tax law requires you to keep a mileage log to prove business use. That changes the game. With today’s rules, you gain nothing by using only one car. But the new mileage log rule gives you a possible opportunity to increase your tax deductions.

First, you might ask: Will the IRS allow me to use more than one vehicle for business?

Yes! The IRS official method for computing business use of a single vehicle is to divide business miles by total miles driven. IRS Form 4562, which is filed by proprietorships and corporations, contains spaces for up to six vehicles. In other words, yes, the IRS recognizes that you can drive more than one vehicle.

Here are the two basics that make the two-vehicle strategy work:
1:  You drive more miles than your spouse, and
2:  Both vehicles are somewhat close in adjusted basis.
To see if you can benefit from this two-vehicle strategy, and by how much (the minimum amount, really), apply the arithmetic from the before-and-after example below to your vehicles.

Before. You drive 2,000 personal and 28,000 business miles on your vehicle (93% business). Your spouse drives 8,000 personal miles on vehicle 2. Each vehicle has an adjusted basis of $24,000. Your maximum depreciation and/or Section 179 deduction is $22,400 (93% times $24,000) on the one vehicle you currently drive for business.

After. You switch vehicles with your spouse every week. You now have 73.7% business use of vehicle 1 and 73.7% business use of vehicle 2. This produces $35,376 in maximum depreciation and/or Section 179 deductions (73.7% x 2 x $24,000).

You gain $12,976 in new deductions ($35,376 minus $22,400). You did not have to drive one mile further or spend one additional penny. You simply had to know (as you learned here) that this strategy could work for you.

Secret #2:  Have a second office in the home.

Have you been told that because you have an office outside your home that you may not have an office in the home?  That’s wrong!

IRS publication 463 states, “You can have more than one business location, including your home, for a single trade or business.”  Learn why in the free report due to IRS publication 587 you want your office in the home to qualify as an administrative office.

Secret #3: Travel by cruise ship and deduct up to $680 a day.

When you know the rules, it’s easy to travel to a business meeting by cruise ship rather than by airplane or other mode of transportation.  Tax law provides various ways for you to deduct a cruise.  The free report shows an example of a trip to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands from California or New York.

Learn about IRS Regulation 1.274-4 that gives you two one-owner business friendly rules that you can use to your benefit:

1:  The United States means the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
2: Transportation cost to a foreign destination for seven days or less, excluding the day of departure, is not subject to an allocation between business and personal days.

In the example if you fly to Miami, Florida, board a cruise ship that will take five days to arrive at St. Thomas your deductions will include the cost of:

1 :  Travel to Miami
2:   Cruise ship fare to St. Thomas (not to exceed tax law’s luxury boat limits that range in 2014 from a low of $566 to $680 per day, depending on the dates of travel)
3:   Food and lodging in St. Thomas
4:   Airfare to Miami
5 :  Travel from Miami to home

You have to admit, tax knowledge can be fun which is why I want to send you this free report.

I specialize in “nuts and bolts” tax strategies that bring tax law to life so that business taxpayers and professional tax advisers can put the law to work for them.  In fact, my mission is to clarify taxes so that you take control of your money.

Plucking common sense from the tax law is time consuming and difficult work.  Yet, after more than 25 years, I still get great satisfaction when I can clarify and extract tax dollars from the tax law not only for your pockets but also to add to your net worth.  In fact I have extracted over 400 tax savings tips and would like to share the most important lessons with you so am creating a course that will share seven tax secrets each month for the next year.

Sincerely,

Conrad Oertwig
