Red roses at our house.

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. 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. Will be interested in hearing about your experience.

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

Fresher Quality Roses

Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air, are stored in Miami, then shipped by truck and then they sit in a store. They can be a week or more old when you receive 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 facility until, then flown to your destination for immediate delivery to your home or office. This means they last much longer.

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.

Christmas-roses

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

Fair Trade Roses

In addition the Verflora seal requires the rose grower to be socially responsible adhering to recognized labor and community standards, specially pertaining to health and safety, work conditions, hiring practices, discrimination, harassment and fair pay.

The growers offer every single one of their workers:

See how to care for fresh Ecuador roses to make them amazingly long lasting.

See the steps that keep some of these roses looking good for 14 days.

roses

After 18 days some still looked like this.

ecuador-roses

Let me add here that not all, in fact not most, fresh Ecuador flowers will last 14 days. Nine days is more the norm.

Many factors matter when it comes to longevity.  Weather conditions that affect the temperature in the delivery van will have an impact.   How long the flowers are in the van matters.  How quickly you get the roses out of the box and into water affects longevity.

The types of roses delivered also relate to longevity.  Thick stemmed roses with smaller heads generally last longer than thin stemmed roses with large heads.  This however is not always true.

ecuador-roses

Some of roses we have received  (after being severely pruned and placed three to a vase) lasted three weeks.

I have learned a few tips beyond those shown in the flower care instruction. They are:

#1: Cut the tips of the rose stems when you receive them and place them in warm water and plant food.

#2: Remove the guard leafs (the outside leaf that will have a strip of green on it).  These leaves are high in acid that speeds blooming.

#3:  Do not crowd the flowers.  Arrange them so the heads do not touch.

#4: Recut the tips just a bit every other day and refresh with warm and plant food.

#5: When the heads start to droop cut the stem severely.  The shorter stem seems to bring the flower back.

Use these three tips and those shown in the Care of Flowers report here and be ready to be amazed at how long your fresh Ecuador flowers last.

Learn How to Earn in Ecuador


What better retirement can you have than traveling the world… shopping to sell?

If you love to shop and to help cultures gain from each other then an Ecuadorian export business can create a perfect pinnacle career for you.  That’s a lot better than a useless retirement!  There are many benefits of an export career over retirement.

Now you can tap into an Ecuador export service Ecuadorshop.net that already exports Ecuador leather products, textiles, Panama hats, wood products, Amazon products, tagua and Ecuador roses.

Ecuador exports can help avoid a financially strained retirement because you can connect with a network of suppliers, logistic services and unique products, so it becomes viable to shop to sell.

Why aim for a better retirement by shopping to sell?   The US government’s website Export.gov gives one clue in its webpage “Benefits of Exporting”

This page says: Why Consider Exporting?

    •    Exporting enables companies to diversify their portfolios and to weather changes in the domestic economy.

    •    Exporting helps small companies grow and become more competitive in all their markets.

The Economic Impact of Exporting

    •    In the past 25 years, U.S. exports increased five-fold from $224 billion to more than $1.1 trillion in 2004.

    •    About one of every five factory jobs—or 20 percent of all jobs in America’s manufacturing sector—depends on exports. Workers in jobs supported by merchandise exports typically receive wages higher than the national average.

    •    Small businesses create 70 percent of the new jobs in America.

    •    More than two-thirds of exporters have fewer than 20 employees.

One way to gain from these facts is to enjoy an Ecuador “Get Together” and enjoy the best parts of Ecuador’s Sierra. Learn about Ecuador and how to shop to sell.

The Ecuador Get Togethers are conducted by Roberto Ribadeniera, a full time exporter from Ecuador.

Roberto’s business, Ecuadorshop.net, can allow a full business relationship with Ecuador producers.  You get all the tools you need to place orders without having to return to Ecuador.  You have a full support team working for you in Ecuador.

Ecuadorshop.net helps you fill future orders… inspects your products, packs and ships if required.  Ecuadorshop has shipped hundreds of products and has the know-how that is shared on the tour.

You are backed up by the many years of exporting experience of Ecuadorshop.net, so this service goes far beyond the tour.  This is a whole business experience so you can shop and sell.

The ability to earn extra income may be one of the most important assets you can have when living in Ecuador.  Having an Ecuador export business is one good way to go past retirement age doing what you love.

Here is an export business lesson from the Texas Rangers.

texas rangers badge

Texas Ranger badge.

Almost everyone has heard of the Texas Rangers.  They are the oldest law enforcement body on the North American Continent and have helped bring in many famous criminals like John Wesley Hardin and Bonnie and Clyde.

A delegate of the Ecuador Export tours sold hundreds of embossed Ecuador leather backpacks to the Texas Rangers and that was just the first order.  However it turned out that there was one thing that even these famous lawmen could not overcome…. red tape.

This was possible to overcome through Ecuador Shop which provides 13 services so you can have the full infrastructure needed to export from Ecuador to the USA.

Ecuador Shop provides:

#1:    A US company.

#2:   A continuous bond, which has to be purchased each year to be eligible to register to import with the US Customs.

#3:   A broker who has a power of attorney authorizing them to handle your imports.

#4:   A US bank account to pay US customs department when taxes and duties are due.

#5:   A verifiable credit history and Social Security number.

#6:  A gateway company to process the charges.

#7:   A credit card merchant account.

#8: A certified, secure  shopping cart.

#9:  An annual PCI compliance review and certification

#10:  An EIN number provided by the IRS

#11:  A sales number issued by the state of Florida.

#12:  Monthly accounting system.

#13: IRS annual sales report.

The Ecuadorshop Logistics service provides all these services for importers into the USA.

This is a great service that provides every detail for importing products into the USA.   One big benefit is that the service can send each product direct to the buyer in the USA.  We sell Ecuador roses… charge the customer and deliver the order to our logistics service.   Everything else is handled by the service.   The  tracking notice and the roses are delivered direct to the buyer.  The logistics service then charges our credit card and pays the supplier… so no money has to be wired to Ecuador.

 The Ecuadorshop Logistics service makes large and medium scale Ecuador exporting possible.

Turning your passion into profit with your own business makes sense in these technological times… if you can outrun growth in red tape.  The Ecuadorshop logistic service can help stop red tape from putting your business in the red.

The ultimate form of financial security is to serve in a way you love through your own business.  Exporting can be fun and fulfilling as well as profitable.  Improved technology continually makes having your own global micro business easier if you can eliminate most of the red tape.

Ecuador Export Business Idea

Live anywhere – Earn in Ecuador with an export business in Ecuador.

Create an Ecuador exports business with Roberto Ribadeneira’s Ecuador Export Tour.   Merri and I have worked with Roberto for nearly twenty years exporting many products.

You can arrange an individual tour designed especially for you.

ecuador exports

Lake Quicocha near Cotacachi.

Visiting another country is great, but it is even better if you can do business while traveling!

Come to Ecuador and learn all about exports to the USA, Canada and Europe while visiting amazing places and earning money.

* You may be able to deduct part or all of this trip from your taxes.

* You can buy products to sell back home.

* You can learn about exporting from Ecuador to anywhere.

* You can even bring ideas to manufacture in Ecuador with great quality and competitive prices.

Coming to Ecuador not only won’t cost money but will make money for you.

Here is a note from Roberto Ribadeneira:

Let me share all the knowledge, contacts and products I have accumulated over decades of exporting.  Make your trip to Ecuador the beginning of a great business opportunity.

ecuador exports

Otavalo Market.  Learn about Tagua…a vegetable, sustainable, renewable ivory.

Let’s see some numbers.

ecuador exports

Tagua bracelet. Cost in Ecuador is $2.50 it is sold in the USA for at least $12.

Tagua necklace. Cost in Ecuador is $3, it is sold in the USA for at least $15.

Metal Bracelet. Cost in Ecuador is $1, it is sold in the USA for at least $10.

Shawl. Cost in Ecuador is $2.50, it is sold in the USA for at least $11.

Scarf.  Cost in Ecuador is $3.00 it is sold in the USA for at least $12.00.

ecuador exports

Alpaca Scarves.

These are just few examples of products that are inexpensive and have huge margins.  But there is also another plus; you can request specific improvements on those products.

But let’s go over some numbers and specific ideas.

1-    You want to sell a tagua bracelet to a University in Colorado, but everyone can do that, what they can’t do is sell a tagua bracelet with the University’s color. We can dye the tagua bracelet to match the University’s color, same goes for any other tagua designs and even for shawls and other textiles. If you make just $9 on each tagua bracelet and you sell 100 units, you are making $900 on 1 order.  And this is just 1 product, and this is just 1 University.  You can apply this idea to any education center in the USA.

2-    You see designs of leather products that you think could be made better, or different.  There is a niche market where you can sell them.  The manufacturers in Ecuador can make any design, on any color with major improvements over the original idea.  You can even request to put a logo and special details on the products.  We have a major company in the USA that wants our leather iPhone 6 cases, but they want them with their branding and specifications that other cases don’t have.  So we are making the leather cases exactly as they want them.  Margins on leather products are around 60% retail and 20% wholesale. Orders for medium size companies come in the hundreds, so you can make good money selling leather. Customers and myself have made thousands of dollars selling these products.

3-    Selling Roses to final customers is another amazing way of making money.  What I am doing right now is reaching to people that want to raise funds for specific projects and teaching them how to use roses for that.  On one specific program we are donating $20 to $40 on each box sold to a Water Project in Ecuador.  The response has been unbelievable, people enjoy the beauty of Roses from Ecuador but also contribute to a good cause at the same time.  Since there is no limit on quantity of flowers that you can sell, there is no limit on the number of people that you can involve in this idea.

4-    Selling wholesale. This is the main goal for the July course that I want you to take here in Ecuador.  If you find a store, a chain, a website or any other vendor that sells unique and cool products, you are in for a great business opportunity. Their orders are in the hundreds and even thousands of units.  Margins are lower, but since you are selling more, that compensates.  The nice thing about this part of the business is that these big companies are looking for different products, so if they buy 1 from you, there is a big chance that they will buy many, many others.  Remember that our manufacturers can make the products with the customer’s specifications, so there is no restriction on design that your buyer may want.

As you can see there are many ways in which you can make money while visiting Ecuador.  That is why I have designed an Ecuador Export Course that can be especially customized for you.

We work 3 full days together learning and searching for products that you could buy.  You and I will go over ideas, product designs, web design, shopping carts, SEO and other details on how to get as many customers as you can.

ecuador exports

Leather Duffel Bags.

The course includes taking you to the manufacturers, sellers and export companies so you will have all the contact information that you need to move forward on your business.  There are dozens of manufacturers that make every type of product that you can imagine.  Most of them already work with big importers all over the world and have proved that the quality of their products is amazing.

If you would like to sell retail, I will also show you how to design a website, create products, a shopping cart, how to set up the system to charge your customers online and the basics of promoting it.

There are plenty of places to visit and ideas to explore. Among the places that you will visit while on the Export Tour are:
–    Quito
–    Otavalo
–    Peguche
–    Ibarra
–    Cotacachi
–    San Antonio de Pichincha

This is not just another course, this is THE COURSE. I don’t just teach you how to Import Products to the USA, I also work on the import-export business myself, which means that I have the experience and knowledge to give you ideas and solutions.

Jewelry is one of many Ecuador exports.

Ecuador has evolved as an export center and I have expanded my export service to create custom export tours that fit your schedule and particular desires.

I arrange for you to meet the artists, designers, creators, craftsmen, wholesalers of products that suit your business ideals and arrange visits of workshops, homes and markets.

You can learn about exports as diverse as jewelry or wood products.

Ecuador has great art exports.

There are wonderful handmade crafts like the chess set below.

This tour goes to the high Andes.

You’ll see products from Zuleta where they create handmade “green” cotton-one-of-a-kind tableware, shirts, specialty items.

Here you see them in hand sewn embroidery from the village of Zuleta. In this Andean community near us hand embroidery has been an important form of artistic expression and adornment for centuries. Andean cultures have long boasted superior textiles, far surpassing those of Europe. The weavers of the Andes could produce material with as many as five hundred two-ply woolen wefts per inch compared to one hundred in Europe.

The women of Zuleta are renowned for unique hand embroidered designs and colors. Their styles are so unique they have become a form of cultural identification.

Flowers are popular in Otavalan sweaters as well.  Plus the ladies of Intag make flowers from plant fiber.

My main exports are flowers, but we send many products and have the Ecuadorshop Logistics Service to help you become an exporter.

Roberto speaking at a seminar about how he can shop, ship and charge for Ecuador export businesses.

Here is a Ecuador export business I arranged for a tour delegate who sold to the Texas Rangers.

Texas Ranger badge.

Almost everyone has heard of the Texas Rangers.  They are the oldest law enforcement body on the North American Continent and have helped bring in many famous criminals like John Wesley Hardin and Bonnie and Clyde.

We were really tickled to hear from a delegate of the Ecuador Export tours that he had sold hundreds of embossed Ecuador leather backpacks to the Texas Rangers and that was just the first order.

Here are some of the services we offer to help you export from Ecuador to the USA.

#1:    A US company.

#2:   A continuous bond, which has to be purchased each year to be eligible to register to import with the US Customs.

#3:   A broker who has a power of attorney authorizing them to handle your imports.

#4:   A US bank account to pay US customs department when taxes and duties are due.

Plus if you are selling direct to customers and accepting credit cards, you need:

#1:   A verifiable credit history and Social Security number.

#2:  A gateway company to process the charges.

#3:   A credit card merchant account.

#4: A certified, secure  shopping cart.

#5:  An annual PCI compliance review and certification

#6:  An EIN number provided by the IRS

#7:  A sales number issued by the state of Florida.

#8: A Physical US address (PO box not allowed).

#9:  Monthly accounting system.

#10: IRS annual sales report.

We can help you organize all these steps.

Our Ecuadorshop Logistics Service provides all these services for exporters.

There are two more very special benefits.

First, our logistics service can pay manufactures in Ecuador.

Second, our service can monitor production and quality and assure timely delivery.

Many people try to export and find really great products that they sell really well.   However once they return to the US they can’t restock unless they return to Ecuador.  If they do reorder but are not present for delivery, they are at the mercy of the manufacturer… which creates a huge quality control problem.  These importers get whatever suppliers here send them.

Many don’t even try to reorder.  They don’t know how.  They don’t want to wire  money without seeing the product and being are of delivery.

Many others just have no idea or find that the income is not worth the time, effort and cost of all the red tape.

The good news is that I do not get in-between the importer and buyer either.  I set a price for my service and the importer knows his product cost.

Our service is provided for a set fee so the importer knows all costs and can price his product accordingly.

This is a great service that provides every detail for importing products into the USA.   We have used this logistics service ourselves for years.  One big benefit is that the service can send each product direct to the buyer in the USA.  We sell Ecuador roses… charge the customer and deliver the order to our logistics service.   Everything else is handled by the service.   The  tracking notice and the roses are delivered direct to the buyer.  The logistics service then charges our credit card and pays the supplier… so no money has to be wired to Ecuador.

The Ecuadorshop Logistics service makes large and medium scale Ecuador exporting possible.   Exporting can be fun and fulfilling as well as profitable.  Improved technology continually makes having your own global micro business easier if you have support.

Tax Free Ecuador Roses


Roberto Ribadeniera just sent this note about the last opportunity to have Tax Free Ecuador Roses.

The no-tax ATPDEA unilateral agreement from the USA to Ecuador will expire by the end of this month. Which means that starting on August 01, 2013 Ecuador will be paying taxes on flowers that enter the USA.

Regardless of how we feel about this policy, we decided to use the last days of the no-tax policy to do something positive.

Ecuador roses at Gary’s home.

Here are the good points about buying Ecuador roses today.

First; part of the sales will go to help the students in Cotacachi with their scholarships.   Second; we will also give you a discount equivalent of what the tax will be.  You will help the students and will also get our roses at a really low price.

We will like to make sure that we ship lots of flowers before we start paying taxes.

The delivery for the roses will be Tuesday July 30.

We will keep it simple, we will be sending 25 or 50 roses that are farm choice. All the profit will either go to the students or as savings to you.

Thank You Ecuador


There is a special reason for Americans to thank the people of Ecuador.

The biggest asset in Ecuador is the people.  We can eliminate border blindness by exposing ourselves to the people of other cultures.

christmas roses

Roses from the people of Ecuador.

We are bombarded with so much bad news and focus on governmental conflict that we often have a Border Blindness that stops us from knowing the people around the world.

My novel the “65th Octave” dwelt on this.

In this book, the hero and heroine, Robin MacAllen and Talking Panther, stumble across a group of Controllers who try to gain control of the world’s economy.  These Controllers accumulate huge amounts of shares and dump them after creating terror in the marketplace. With their extensive cash hoards, they buy up the market for pennies on the dollar.  When this was written over a decade ago, I worried the premise was far fetched. Now the plot hardly seems dramatic enough!

Here is one of Talking Panther’s dialogues about our connection with all the people of the world.

“In the beginning, we were one. We were in the middle and this was good. All knew the other and all were in harmony with nature. Then some of us wandered and left the middle. Some went west. Others east. We lost touch.

“In the east and the west as they settled, they forgot that there was a middle. For their sons, the east and the west became the middle. Those in the west saw the sunrise and called it the beginning as those in the east saw the same sun setting and called it the end. The difference was confusing and the confusion made the difference an issue.

“In the beginning we were one. We were united by all that was common.  Then as we moved we became united by all that was different. Spread apart the view was beyond the vision of the eagle and it became easier to look at the horizon than beyond.

“Few could see that we are still part of a whole.

“This was the beginning of ignorance and its son fear. Fear made each feel less and made each want to be more. Fear blinded the truth that all are equal and that we really are all one.”

Sometimes… the people working together transcend these illusions created by the news and do something so heart warming that we remember who we all really are.   Such an event is described by Roberto Ribedineira, head of the Ateam Ecuador in Quito.

Memorial Day

By Roberto Ribadeneira

It’s hard to talk about a Day that brings so many feelings, mainly because I am from Ecuador, but I did my best to bring the emotion that I could feel when talking to the people that were involved in a beautiful experience on this day.

Kevin Clifford (co-Director) is one of the organizers of this event. Ramiro Penaherrera (co-Director) – who is a friend of mine –told me that I couldn’t write this piece without talking to Kevin, who he said “is the one that make this happens.”

So I called Kevin – who is always busy – but made the time to talk to me.

Delaware Valley Floral Group Trucks at Arlington National Cemetery, May 25th 2013

For Memorial Day Ecuador and Colombia donated thousands of roses that were sent through an amazing logistic (thanks to Delaware Valley) to a little over 184 cemeteries across the USA. Between both countries over 220,000 long stem roses arrived for the sole purpose to make Memorial Day a very special event.

Ecuador got to send the vast majority of flowers, making all of us really proud.

Ramiro and Sophia who work for www.memorialdayflowers.org, made that possible reaching to fifteen flower farms to contribute to this cause.

Cub Scout volunteering at Arlington National Cemetery – May 27th 2013

Among the farms and importers that helped we have (in no particular order):
Greenrose, Agrogana, Roses & Roses, Rosaprima, Flores Verdes, Florecal, Ecuatorian Flower, Nevado Roses, Pambaflor, Denmar, Floreloy, Galapagos Flores, Glamour, Ingüeza Roses, ValleFlor, LatinFlor, Royal Flowers, Queens and Sole Farms.

ecuador-memorial-roses

What this team of great people did on Memorial Day was amazing. With all the flowers that went to the cemeteries, they gave some away to family members to put them on the graves of their loved ones. The important aspect of Memorial Day Flowers is that no one has been forgotten, no life was lost in vain, and that every single sacrifice is recognized and will be remembered.

Kevin said that the purpose is to thank, to tell a story and also to support the families of the ones that have lost their lives. The families are the ones that suffer the most, not only their loved ones are gone, but their burden and suffering goes unrecognized by many, which is why on Memorial Day they need to feel that people support them.

This is a simple gesture, handling a rose could seem not that important, but to the hearts of the families and to the hearts of the people involved in this event, things are much more than just being there, it is about understanding and getting a symbol that many will remember and that says… we are there for you.

Kevin would like this to be bigger. The idea is to reach more and more cemeteries across the country. He says that words can’t describe the feeling of being part of this. People feel that this noble gesture means that someone remembers and if this can be bigger every year, the feeling would spread across the USA.

Kevin said that when his daughter helped him out, she couldn’t understand why kids have no parents. But that is the sad reality of many children whose moms and dads have died defending the country. That is why this is really important, so children could also understand the sacrifices that others like them have made, because their moms and dads are no longer there: to watch them grow, to teach them, to love them. She now helps and is aware of what the man and woman that serve the country have to sacrifice to keep the nation safe.

The families can’t thank the participants enough. Kevin said that people were brought to tears and felt so happy receiving roses for their love ones.

Once the volunteers get to see this first hand, their lives are never the same, their views change, they have no idea how different they will feel at the end of the day.

I was so touched after I heard Kevin that I volunteer to help next year; I said I could do anything. Kevin said that he will be pleased to let me help out; the more volunteers and the more people involve in the event, the more awareness that the event will have.

Ramiro didn’t want to take much credit on this. I know him for many years now and he is a good friend and very bright and forward thinking. But my feeling is that without his involvement this couldn’t have been possible in the dimension that it was.

He mentioned that after three years the event has grown. In 2011 10,000 roses were handed out. In 2012 140,000 and this year over 200,000 roses. The logistics are complex and Delaware Valley was great at making it happen. He also said that this helps the families and supports the ones who serve the country. “It’s a way to honor those willing to fight.”

At Arlington they got the most notorious display of flowers. The Memorial Day Flowers Foundation is the organization in charge of making this happen. Ramiro said that the idea is to grow every year and to get more people, more flowers, more volunteers and more farms involved.

“This is a very emotional thing, I have five family members buried at Arlington… so it’s really important to me in a personal level.” Ramiro said to me.

Sophia Romero was behind getting the farms and the roses from Ecuador. When Ramiro mentioned that many roses he said that Sophia was responsible for getting them. The logistics and the quality are also very important, so they made sure they got the best farms on board.

There were over 200 volunteers, among them: boy scouts, girl scouts, cub scouts, firemen from Fairfax County, ex alumni from Landon School. All of them making this a unique day to the many visitors. There were also over 200 florists making arrangements all over the USA. At Arlington Cemetery there were also President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, besides Chuck Hagel, Secretary of Defense.

The goal for next year is clear. After hearing and getting to know just how great this project is, I can’t help to think that the more people that know about it, the more involvement there will be, and I have to be a part of it.

There are many things that words can’t describe, which is why it´s so important to be there, to participate and to collaborate.

The following is a link to a video of what happened that day; you can hear and feel how emotional people were and how a small gesture can change someone’s life.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kOzxIlCaIM

Next year I know many more will be there to help and I sure want to be a part of this; Kevin, Sophia and Ramiro will do their best (as always) to make sure that next Memorial Day reaches even more hearts. I know many of us will be proud to follow their lead.

What more can I say except to thank the people who made this wonderful gesture!

Protect Your Savings in Ecuador

Old Accord Creates New Profits – Multi Currency Investments.

Earn more with multi currency stock market breakouts.

Improve Safety – Increase Profits

Learn how to improve the safety of your savings and investments by selecting good value and diversified investments in a multi-currency portfolio.

Few decisions are as important to your wealth as the value of the markets and currencies you invest in.  This has been our area of expertise since the 1970s and we have worked with and advised some of the largest currency traders in the world.

Gain Protection First – Against the Dollar’s Purchasing Power Loss.  In 1913 the The Federal Reserve Act created the Federal Reserve Bank to protect the purchasing power of the US dollar, which has since lost about 94% of its purchasing power.  Here is its price compared with gold since 1900.

priced in gold

Dollar chart from pricedingold.com (1)

The Fed has let the dollar lose most of its strength plus has allowed interest rates to fall so low, that safe investments cannot keep pace with the drop in purchasing power.

multi-currency-chart

Chart from Grandfather Economic Report (2)

Many investors have forgotten about the risk of a falling dollar because the greenback has been strong for the past five years.  This temporary dollar strength came after the great recession of 2009 just as there was temporary dollar strength after the great recession of the 1980s.  Then about six years after the recession, an agreement was made by major governments to weaken the dollar.

There was a severe global economic recession affecting much of the developed world in the late 1970s and early 1980s.  The United States and Japan exited the recession relatively early, but high unemployment would continue to affect Europe and the UK through to at least 1985.  As a consequence between 1980 and 1985, the US dollar had appreciated by about 50% against the Japanese yen, Deutsche mark, French franc and British pound, the currencies of the next four biggest economies at the time. Then the governments reached an agreement and exchange rate values of the dollar versus the yen declined by 51% from 1985 to 1987.

Now the world is again in the same place.  The recession is over.  Europe is a bit behind in recovery and the dollar is higher than before the recession.

There is no reason for the greenback to be  strong.

The agreement in 1985 was called the Plaza Accord.   Over just two years the greenback dropped nearly 50% versus other major currencies.  The next accord will generate great profits for those who know what to do while it ruins the purchasing power of dollar back investments.

The strong US dollar and low interest rates have created one of the biggest stock and multi currency breakout opportunities in history.  Learn how to create a plan to profit from multi currency shifts ahead.

One reason for the potential gains is that stock markets and currency values are cyclical.  Due to low interest rates created by the 2009 economic downturn, the US and a few other equity markets have risen to some of their highest prices, ever.  These markets offer very poor value now.  The steep valuation creates incredible profit potential but also hides some enormous risks.  Learn how to develop an investing strategy based of earnings, cash flows, dividends and book values to increase potential for profit and reduce the risks.

Next Extra Profit Created by Value Breakouts

Over the history of US equity markets, the  price of overall markets have risen about 9.1 percent, respectively, compounded annually.  Yet over more than a hundred years of stock market activity,  a majority of the profits have come from just a very few dramatic breakouts.

Equity markets are ruled in the short term by emotions that create unpredictable ups and downs.  Numerous fears of defaults, worries of double dip recessions, high unemployment, concerns about fiscal cliffs, hold investors back.  Yet global population growth and advances in production and prosperity are relentless economic fundamentals that increase value.

When fear holds back a a fundamentally rising value, rising profit potential grows.  Values increase as prices stagnate.  Then markets break free and rocket upwards creating wealth, prosperity and growth.

Find out which breakouts are likely to take place next.

Stocks rise from the cycle of war, productivity and demographics. Cycles create recurring profits. Economies and stock markets cycle up and down around every 15 years as shown in this graph.

stock-Charts

The effect of war cycles on the US Stock Market since 1906.

Bull and bear cycles are based on cycles of human interaction, war, technology and productivity.  Economic downturns create war.

Here is the war stock cycle.  Military struggles (like the Civil War, WWI, WWII and the Cold War: WWIII) super charge inventiveness that creates new forms of productivity…the steam engine, the internal combustion engine,  production line processes, jet engines, TV, farming techniques, plastics, telephone, computer and lastly during the Cold War, the internet.  The military technology shifts to domestic use.  A boom is created that leads to excess.  Excess leads to correction. Correction creates an economic downturn and again to war.

Learn how the Cyber War (WWIV) may change the way we live and act and how this will affect currencies and investments.

Learn:

* How to easily buy global currencies, shares and bonds.

* Trading down and the benefits of investing in real estate in Small Town USA.  We will share why this breakout value is special and why we have been recommending good value real estate in this area since 2009.

* What’s up with gold and silver?  One session looks at my current position on gold and silver and asset protection.  We review the state of the precious metal markets and potential problems ahead for US dollars.  Learn how low interest rates eliminate  opportunity costs of diversification in precious metals and foreign currencies.

* How to improve safety and increase profit with leverage and staying power.  The seminar reveals Warren Buffett’s value investing strategy from research published at Yale University’s website.  This research shows that the stocks Buffet chooses are safe (with low beta and low volatility), cheap (value stocks with low price-to-book ratios), and high quality (stocks of companies that are profitable, stable, growing, and with high payout ratios), but his big, extra profits come from leverage and staying power.  At times Buffet’s portfolio, as all value portfolios, has fallen, but he has been willing and able to wait long periods for the value to reveal itself and prices to recover.

keppler asset management chart

This chart based on a 45 year portfolio study shows that holding a diversified good value portfolio (based on a  good value strategy) for 13 month’s time, increases the probability of outperformance to 70%.  However those who can hold the portfolio for five years gain a 88% probability of beating the bellwether in the market and after ten years the probability increases to 97.5%.

Time is your friend when you use a good value strategy.  The longer you can hold onto a well balanced good value portfolio, the better the odds of outstanding success.

Learn how much leverage to use.  Leverage is like medicine, the key is dose.  Buffett leverages his portfolio at a ratio of approximately 1.6 to 1.  This rate of expansion by the way is called the “Golden Ratio”.  It is a mathematical formula that controls the growth of most natural things; trees, the shape of leaves, the spiral of shells, as well as the way economies and societies grow.

We’ll sum the strategy, how to leverage cheap, safe, quality stocks and for what period of time based on your circumstances.

Learn to plan in a way so you never run out of money.  The seminar also has a session on the importance of having and sticking to a plan.  See how success is dependent on conviction, wherewithal, and skill to operate with leverage and significant risk.  Learn a three point strategy based on my 50 (almost) years of investing experience combined with wisdom gained from some of the world’s best investment managers and economic mathematical scientists.

Enjoy investing more with slow, worry free, good value investing.  Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  These are major foundations of the Behavior Gap, a trait exhibited by most investors, that causes them to underperform any market they choose.  The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.  The losses created by this gap grow when investors trade short term under stress.

Learn how to put meaning into your investing by creating profitable strategies that combine good value investments with unique, personal goals.

Learn how to span the behavior gap.  Behavior gaps are among the biggest reasons why so many investors fail.  Human evolution makes fear the second most powerful motivator.  (Greed is the third.)  Fear creates investment losses due to behavior gaps.  Fear motivates us more strongly than desire.  By nature investors are risk adverse, when they should embrace risk.  Purpose is the most powerful motivator,  stronger than fear and greed.  One powerful way to overcome the behavior gap is to invest with a purpose.

Combine your needs and capabilities with the secrets and the math of our good value model portfolio.

Share ideas about my good value portfolio.  My personal investment portfolio comes from a continual analysis of international stock markets and a comparison of their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.

Markets included in this portfolio are:

• Norway
• Australia
• Hong Kong
• Japan
• Singapore
• United Kingdom
• Taiwan
• South Korea
• China

These markets have been chosen based on four pillars of valuation.

• Absolute Valuation
• Relative Valuation
• Current versus Historic Valuation
• Current Relative versus Relative Historic Valuation

Learn how to use Country ETFs to easily construct a diversified, risk-controlled, equally weighted representative country portfolios in all of these good value countries.

To achieve this goal my portfolio consists of Country Index ETFs that track an index of shares in a specific country.  These country ETFs provide diversification into a basket of equities in the good value countries.  The expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund as well so such ETFs provide diversification and cost efficiency.

This is an easy, simple and effective approach to zeroing in on value because little management and guesswork is required.  You are investing in a diversified portfolio of good value indices.  A BUY rating for an index does NOT imply that any stock in that country is an attractive investment, so you do not have to pick and choose shares.  You can invest in the index which is like investing in all the shares in the index.  All you have to do is invest in an ETF that in turn invests passively in all the shares of the index.

Learn the results of a $80,000 share purchase cost test that found the least expensive way to invest in good value.  The keys to this portfolio are good value, low cost, minimal fuss and bother.  Plus a great savings of time.  Trading is minimal, usually not more than one or two shares are bought or sold in a year.  I wanted to find the very least expensive way to create and hold this portfolio so I performed a test.

The Test for Low Cost Trading

Research put every part of this portfolio in place, except knowing the best, easiest and least expensive way to buy.  A search for an optimal way to buy and hold boiled down to two methods.  One tactic to test was to use a unique online broker that appeared to offer the lowest cost deal.  The other approach was to use a community bank in Smalltown USA.  The small town bank that I use looks after my 401K trust account and their service is first class.  The benefit of small banks is that they still treat us as a human beings (instead of a number) and when we need, it’s easy to go right to the top to answer a question or get a problem resolved.  There are no call centers and the bank and the person looking after my account is just around the corner.

I created a test to see which offered the least expensive service.

Working with my banker in Smalltown USA,  I created two accounts, one at the online broker and the other at the bank. I placed $40,000 in each.

I set up the order for the country ETFs online, while my trust manager set up orders for the identical amounts of the same shares in his system.  Then we got on the phone, coordinated our timing and on a count of three each pushed the button “BUY”.

The results of this test  show how you can gain on any purchase of country ETFs.

This is the last day to order fresh long stem Mother’s Day Ecuador roses to be delivered May 9, 2013,  the Thursday before Mother’ s Day.

ecuador-mother's-day-Roses

I am pleased.  Despite a fuel surcharge and a new US customs tax… the price for your fresh roses delivered to your doorstep by Fedex is the same as last year and the year before.

25 fresh long stem Mother’s Day roses $79

50 fresh long stem Mother’ s Day Ecuador assorted roses $94

25 assorted and 25 pink Fresh Long Stem Mother’ s Day Ecuador assorted roses $119

You can make three or four bouquets like this with 50 roses and you simply cannot find more beautiful and long lasting fresh cut roses… anywhere.

Mother' s Day Ecuador roses

Here are 100 assorted and pink roses just delivered and sitting in the kitchen sink at our North Carolina home.

100 Fresh Long Stem Mother’ s Day Ecuador assorted roses $159

When my mother receives her fresh Ecuador roses, she loves to show them off to all the others who live nearby. By the morning they are fully opened and incredible!

Here is an example of just a baker’s dozen. She can make four bouquets like this from 50 roses.

Fwd: mother's Day'roses

You can now order fresh, long stem, Ecuador roses for Mother’s May until May 5, 2013 for Fedex delivery May 9, 2013.  I regret that Fedex cannot deliver the roses in Canada or elsewhere outside the USA.

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 including shipping starting at only $79.

Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people.

Fedex will deliver them with a card. Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the Fedex driver and let me know. I’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. Refunds cannot be made if the roses are delivered and the Fedex delivery person departs.

There are two ways to obtain 50 or 100 fresh cut roses.

One. We provide a service called Ecuador Living to assist those with a genuine and immediate interest in Ecuador. This service shares our continual research and experiences in global business, living and investing in Ecuador plus our contacts. We feel the service is a bargain at $119 a year.

If you subscribe in this special offer you pay only $169 for a year’s subscription and 25 fresh cut, premium roses. You save $28.

Save $28. Subscribe to Ecuador Living Premium Service and get your first order of Ecuador roses at below half price.

Ecuador Living subscription and 25 Assorted Mother’s Day Roses. $169.

If you do not have a great interest in Ecuador but just want these incredible, fresh roses, simply select one of the options below for 25,  50 to 100 fresh cut roses including delivery by Fedex.

Unless otherwise arranged, and subject to weather permitting, Fedex will deliver your roses to you or your recipient Thursday May 9, 2013 two days before Mother’s Day.

Premium Quality Roses

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

mother's Day'roses

Some of Ecuador roses delivered this year.

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

Recently, even the much smaller, tired roses at the local super market cost even more than the fresh long stem roses sent from Ecuador and they are not even delivered to your or your mother’s house or office.

Fresher Quality Roses

Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air and 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 mother, 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 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 red fresh Ecuador roses we had delivered to us.

mother's Day'roses

Fair Trade Roses

In addition the Verflora seal requires the rose grower to be socially responsible adhering to recognized labor and community standards, specially pertaining to health and safety, work conditions, hiring practices, discrimination, harassment and fair pay.

The growers offer every single one of their workers:

-free doctor and medical treatment at the farm for workers
-day care facilities for infants
-free breakfast and lunch (and dinner when they work late)
-free sports and recreation facilities
-small business loans -when workers want to leave to set up their own small holding farm
-workers fund -for financial help with school fees to buy a car, etc
-complete health and safety equipment provided free -helmets , gloves, masks, etc
-paid maternity leave with a guarantee of work when they want to return
-overtime paid over and above the legal requirements
-Christmas parties, summer holiday excursions, sports tournaments

Rosy Mother’s Day Gifts


Mother’s Day brings good luck because moms are simply great!

I am one of the luckiest guys in the world for many reasons.   One of the most important reasons is my mom.

gary-scott-mothers day

Mom on a recent winter visit to us in Florida.

We are headed to mom’s place shortly for her 90th birthday celebration.   What a blessing that she is well and active.

I am always looking for ways to express to her how much she means to our family and how much I love her.

These special two gifts, come from our friend, Candace Newman. She is offering Mother’s Day discounts on both rose rejuvenation oil and rose perfume.

candace newman

Candace Newman.

Candace has been a friend (as well as our essential oil supplier) for decades. She lived with us and an Ecuador shaman and apprentices in Ecuador where she studied ways to incorporate shamanic wisdom into her essential oil formulas.

The Oil Lady’s Mother’s Day Special

Combo: Rejuvenation Face Oil and Rejuvenation Perfume are 15% off
Individual Rejuvenation Formula products are 10% off

Our Rejuvenation formula of pure essential oils has been our #1 selling product by far every year since its inception in 1994, when I initially created it for the rejuvenating abilities of these precious oils for my face.

Years have taken it way beyond what I thought I was doing.  Men use it for aftershave and bald head care, clients report it is their major anxiety relief aroma, some use it as a sleep aid, others use it as their perfume/cologne.

This is a perfect example of what essential oils have always been:

(1) the origins of medicine due to the medicinal properties of their natural chemical constituents, and
(2) the origins of perfume due to their concentrated pure aromas.

Our Rejuvenation Formula of essential oils serves to demonstrate the microcosm of holistic medicine properties of essential oils. In this case, the oils care for the skin while the aroma touch the mind and the heart. One of the most amazing reports to us, was a longtime client who has used the formula for years for her skincare first, then for stress relief and emotional comfort, then it ended up bringing her out of the confusion and fear of coming out of a coma. Who could have predicted this?  This New Jersey lady sent her sister home from the hospital to get her Rejuvenation Oil, because she was yearning for the comfort this aroma brought her!

The truth is, for those who like the aroma, it is a major rejuvenator for our skin as well as a comforter to our heart and soul. It is the quality of the oils (like a fine wine) that our heart loves. Then an entrainment happens in our brain with these thoughts and feelings that the aroma creates in our limbic system.

rejuvination oil

Rejuvenation Oil (10% discount $40.50).

Rejuvenation Face Oil   30 ml (1 oz)

The Oil Lady® Signature Essential Oil Formula for over 19 years … now available in 100% Organic base of Golden Jojoba … contains: genuine essential oils from their favorite growing environments in the world: Sandalwood (Santalum album of India), Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin of India), Frankincense (Boswellia carteri of Somalia), Geranium (Pelargonium roseum of Madagascar), Rose otto (Rosa damascena of Bulgarian).

These exquisite oils of the highest quality & Aromas of Antiquity … have been used to rejuvenate the skin and soothe the soul for centuries.

For exquisite skin use 4-5 drops as a morning & night face moisturizer.

To soothe the soul with these precious oils & aromas, gently apply a few drops to the nose, temples, back of neck at hairline, and the heart.

For your quiet time, prayer & meditation, gently apply a few drops to the nose, temples, forehead & heart.

For a wonderfully healthy deodorant use a couple of drops.

Jojoba is a liquid wax (looks and feels like and oil) pressed from the brown bean of a desert tree that has a close molecular make-up to the sebum of our skin. Traced back to 1585 it was called Hohowi and known as “The Miracle Plant of the Desert”. It is well known for its antioxidant and rejuvenation effects. A little goes along way and should be completely absorbed into the skin after application. Less can be more. Organic golden is the highest grade of jojoba with the most antioxidants.

Candace’s Morning & Night Face “Ritual” … “a Habit made Holy”:

* Wash my face with a healthy liquid soap

* Lavender Mist my face for cleansing & toning the skin … & getting Lavender into my brain to balance my nervous system

* Apply 4-5 drops of Rejuvenation Face Oil to my face and neck

* Then use sunscreen and/or makeup and Lavender Mist again to set and feel good.

rose perfume

Perfume (10% discount $52.20).

Rose Rejuvenation Perfume   4 ml  (1/7 oz)

* “Look in the perfume of flowers and of nature for peace of mind and joy of life.”       Wang Wei

This proprietary Rejuvenation Essential Oil Formula (EOF) contains the genuine and pure essential oils of: Sandalwood (Santalum album of India), Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin of India), Frankincense (Boswellia carteri of Somalia), Geranium (Pelargonium roseum of Madagascar) and Rose otto (Rosa damascena of Bulgaria).  This formula of essential oils is NOT in any base ingredient.

These ancient and profound essential oils can be used straight as an exquisite perfume, or added to the base ingredient of your choice. The oils are known historically for use in ultimate skin care, however the aromas have proven to help with stress and anxiety while soothing the soul.

Guide:  inhale directly from bottle to calm, soothe, strengthen, and relieve anxiety

Put 1-2 taps on a cotton ball as a personal diffuser and keep near your heart

Make a Palm Blend with 1 tap added in your palm-full of 8-10 drops of Organic Golden Jojoba (or any base you like) … and apply to nose, temples, back of neck and heart

Use as bath oil by applying the above Palm Blend to your skin after you are in the bath water – apply to nose, temples, back of neck and heart first. Then swish hands in the bath water.

Enjoy as an exquisite perfume when used straight on the skin

Enjoy these aromas in their purest state from nature connecting us to our “peace of mind and joy of life”.

This is a gift that may help your mom’s health as well!

Excerpts from the article Health Benefits of Rose Essential Oil at organicfacts.net show some of the benefits of rose oil alone:

The health benefits of Rose Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties like anti depressant, anti phlogistic, anti septic, anti spasmodic, anti viral, aphrodisiac, astringent, bactericidal, cholagogue, cicatrisant, depurative, emenagogue, haemostatic, hepatic, laxative, nervine, stomachic and uterine.

Bactericidal: It is a good bactericide.

Cholagogue: It promotes flow of bile from the gall bladder and helps regulate the acid level in the stomach as well as in the blood, thus keeping you safe from problems like acidity and acidosis.

Cicatrisant: This property of Rose Essential Oil can be of great interest for those who care a lot about their looks.

Depurative: It purifies blood by helping removal and neutralization of toxins from blood.

Hepatic: It simply means it is good for liver’s health.

Laxative: It can serve as a harmless and effective laxative with a beautiful smell and without any adverse side effect. It actually influences the intestinal and anal muscles to help clear bowels.

Nervine: It acts as a tonic for the nerves. It gives them strength to bear shocks and protects them from disorders resulting from age, injuries etc.

Stomachic: It soothes stomach, sedates inflammations in it, helps it function properly and protects it from infections.

Rose Essential Oils are a delightful as well as a healthy gift for all of our moms.

Ecuador Valentine Roses 2013


Ecuador fresh cut Valentine Roses can be ordered from now until noon EST February 9, 2013.

See a report on how to make your flowers last and last and last at the end of this message.

christmas roses

Red roses at our house.

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. Will be interested in hearing about your experience.

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

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 minute I receive your order, I’ll put you directly in touch with the rose plantation who will reserve your color option either red, or farm’s choice.

There are seven ways to obtain fresh cut Ecuador roses for Valentine’s Day.

#1: We provide a service called Ecuador Living to assist those with a genuine and immediate interest in Ecuador. This service shares our continual research and experiences in global business, living and investing in Ecuador plus our contacts. We feel the service is a bargain at $119 a year.

Subscribe to Ecuador Living Premium Service with your Valentine rose order, I’ll reduce the 25 rose price from $91 to $50. You get your fresh cut, premium roses at less than half price. You save $41.

Fedex will deliver the Ecuador farm choice roses directly to you from 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, your address must be correct and you must inspect the flowers with Fedex when they are delivered. If you are not satisfied, the roses must be returned at the time of delivery.  You must assure that someone is at the receiving address who is available to inspect and sign for the roses to assure the guarantee.)

See how to care for fresh Ecuador roses to make them amazingly long lasting.

See the steps that keep some of these roses looking good for 18 days.

roses

After 18 days some still looked like this.

ecuador-roses

Let me add here that not all, in fact not most, fresh Ecuador flowers will last 18 days. Nine days is more the norm.

Many factors matter when it comes to longevity.  Weather conditions that affect the temperature in the Fedex delivery van will have an impact.   How long the flowers are in the van matters. How quickly you get the roses out of the box and into water affects longevity.

The types of roses delivered also relate to longevity.  Thick stemmed roses with smaller heads generally last longer than thin stemmed roses with large heads.  This however is not always true.

ecuador-roses

Some of these white fresh Ecuador roses we had at Christmas (after being severely pruned and placed three to a vase) lasted three weeks.

I have learned a few tips beyond those shown in the flower care instruction. They are:

#1: Do not crowd the flowers.  Arrange them so the heads do not touch.

#2: Recut the tips just a bit every other day when you refresh the water and plant food.

#3: When the heads start to droop cut the stem severely. The shorter stem seems to bring the flower back… perhaps water has to travel less distance.

Use these three tips and those shown in the Care of Flowers report here and be ready to be amazed at how long your fresh Ecuador flowers last.

Your roses include a personalized card so you can have fresh Ecuador Christmas roses yourself or send them as gifts.

New 25 Roses in Assorted Colors.

Normally, you can have 50 fresh cut roses from Ecuador delivered to any zip code in the USA…including Hawaii or Alaska including shipping for only $91 or better still get 50 Ecuador Christmas roses at half price.

This year for the first time our supplier in Ecuador is offering a package of 25 farm choice assorted color roses for $79.  Order 25 roses here. Order 25 fresh cut Ecuador roses for $79 here.

The Ecuador rose plantation offers two color choices,  farm choice assorted or red and white (on orders of 50 and 100 roses). There is a $10 surcharge per 50 for the red and white rose selection.

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 I wrote about Ecuador Christmas 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 a  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 school.

There and then I decided to continually offer Ecuador roses.

The minute I receive your order, I’ll put you directly in touch with the rose plantation who will reserve your color option either red and white, or farm’s choice.

There are five ways to obtain fresh cut Ecuador roses for Christmas.

#1: We provide a service called Ecuador Living to assist those with a genuine and immediate interest in Ecuador. This service shares our continual research and experiences in global business, living and investing in Ecuador plus our contacts. We feel the service is a bargain at $119 a year.  

Subscribe to Ecuador Living Premium Service with your Christmas rose order, I’ll reduce the 25 rose price from $79 to $50. You get your fresh cut, premium roses at less than half price. You save $29.

Fedex will deliver the 50 Ecuador farm choice roses directly to you from 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. I’ll give you a full refund.

To assure the refund, your address must be correct and you must inspect the flowers with Fedex when they are delivered. If you are not satisfied, the roses must be returned at the time of delivery.   You must assure that someone is at the receiving address who is available to inspect and sign for the roses to assure the guarantee.

Subscribe to  Ecuador Living Club $169.  Get 50 Farm Choice Ecuador Christmas Roses. Save $29.

 #2: If you do not have a great interest in Ecuador but just want these incredible, fresh roses,  it’s easy to just order them for $79 for 25 roses or $91 for 50 fresh cut roses including delivery by Fedex. ($10 surcharge for red & white roses).

This is not a deal that helps my pocketbook.  We donate more than this for scholarships to help the Ecuador children.  That’s okay…the cause is worthy.  Merri and I will share the joy of the gifts you help make… Christmas gifts for poor children in Ecuador.

Fresher Quality Roses

Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air then 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 until, then flown to your Fedex destination for immediate delivery to your home or office. This means they last longer.

Environmentally Clean 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.

Fedex delivers them in the afternoon and we immediately put them in fresh water. By the morning they are fully opened and incredible!  This is only a third of one order.

You can now have fresh Ecuador roses on your Thanksgiving table or send them as gifts as well.

Our rose supplier just sent this note:  Gary, Thanksgiving is on Thursday November  22nd so we will deliver roses on Tuesday, November 20th. Only if we get too many orders or the farms are sold out, we will deliver the remainder on Wednesday the 21st.   As always we can provide the best flowers if assorted colors are ordered.  Unless someone sends a specific request in the comments section, it is easier for the farm to pick the flowers that are most ready and look the  best.

We will close sales at November 15th midnight EST.

Ecuador roses have extra large heads that open fully.

You can have 50 fresh cut (four days) roses from Ecuador delivered to any zip code in the USA…including Hawaii or Alaska but must order for Thanksgiving roses before midnight EST November 15.

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 grabbed 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 a  InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children that the foundation provides.

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 three ways to get 50 or 100 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. I’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 three ways to obtain 50 or 100 fresh cut roses and save.

#1: We provide a service called Ecuador Living to assist those with a genuine and immediate interest in Ecuador. This service shares our continual research and experiences in global business, living and investing in Ecuador plus our contacts. We feel the service is a bargain at $119 a year.

#2: Order 100 roses instead. This reduces shipping and the price is only $129 for 100 roses. You save $53.

#3: Join  the Ecuador Living Club  with your first rose order, I’ll reduce the 50 rose price from $91 to $50. You get your fresh cut, premium roses at less than half price. You save $41.

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

Premium Quality Roses

I inspected all the major websites offering roses and found when shipping was calculated, prices ranged from $259 (36 Martha Stewart roses) to $135 and $91.94 for 50 roses from the best ranked websites.  These prices are far above ours even before we add on our special savings.

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.

Christmas-roses

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

Environmentally Clean 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.

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.
