As I ran in the living room, my brother was holding his chest and gasping for air, then he collapsed and became unconscious. I checked his pulse, he didnt have one. I listened for a heartbeat but it wasnt there either. Mom, call 911. I started doing CPR. These are the words of an 18 year old young man, whom I will introduce to you in just a moment. According to the American Heart Asso ciation, nearly 400,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, occur annually in the United States. With the unexpected and sud den loss of heart function, response time is critical. After four min utes the brain and bodi ly functions can experi ence permanent damage. The chances of survival are reduced by 7 to 10 percent for every minute that passes without CPR. After 10 minutes, sur vival is unlikely, as 95 percent of cardiac arrest victims die before reach ing a medical facility, according to John Hopkins Hospital. When we send our kids to school, we hope and pray they will listen, and learn. Every day when my kids return home from school, I always ask, Did you learn any thing new in school to day? most of the time the reply is, Nope, and Im sure most parents get that same answer. With that type of an swer it makes us wonder, are the teachers doing their jobs, do the teachers really care, or is this just a way to collect a check? Rest assured, I have met most of the teachers in our community and I can assure you, teaching is not just a paycheck for them. With all that be ing said, I would like to introduce you to a few people that make up this next story. A couple of weeks ago I was doing a fundrais er at the Winn-Dixie in Crescent City. This fund raiser was for our local VFW. I was just closing the lid on the smoker when, Master Sargent Pelehach walked up. Sargent Pelehach is a mem ber of the VFW and also the JROTC teacher at the Crescent City High School. Sargent Pelehach handed me an email that he received from, Mr. Richard Back, the Fire Chief for the Welaka Fire Department, and this is where the story begins. Eighteen years ago, in a Gainesville hospital not far away, Mr. and Mrs. Aragon had a son, whom they named Eduardo. At the time of his birth, Im sure neither had any idea their son would one day be labeled a Hero. Eduardo has lived in the Crescent City area since he was born. He attended elementary, middle and high school here, and graduated this past June from Crescent City High. While in high school, Eduardo was on both the boxing team, and cross country team. His two favorite subjects were, World History and JROTC. While in JROTC, Eduardo learned CPR from Master Sargent Pelehach. While inter viewing Eduardo I ask, Did you ever think you would use CPR when you were learning it? Edu -Governor Rick Scott recognized 37 out standing educators for t heir contributions to learning with the Gov ernors Shine Awards. T he Shine Award is pre sented to Florida educa tors who have impacted t he lives of students through the classroom. The teachers recognized were all named District Teachers of the Year for their respective coun ties. Governor Scott s aid, I am so honored to be able to present the Governors Shine Award to these 20142015 District Teachers of the Year. As we cele brate Floridas success es in education we must a pplaud our teachers commitment to educat ing Floridas children. F loridas students are among the best in the nation thanks to the commitment of our great educators. Our wonderful teachers play a fundamental role in preparing our students for college and a career. Making that list was Matthew Bergen, a fthgrade teacher at Brown ing Pearce Elementary S chool in East Palatka. Putnam County School District employees, at the Campbell Admin istration Building, sent p hotos and messages of support for Bergen, Putnams Teacher of the Year, to the Florida De partment of Education f or its Teacher of the Year celebration. Em ployees donned a vari ety of hats, including s ome homemade ones, for a Hats off to Matt photo.

July is the nations official Park and Recreation month. It was first designated by congress in 1984 as a way to celebrate parks at all governmental levels, whether they are national, state or local. They also wanted to recognize the contribution of both the employees and the volunteers who were vital to keep the parks and recreation areas of our country running. It serves as an important reminder of our dedication to the preservation of the environment, and serves as an aid to the memory for all Americans to enjoy the natural wonders of our nation. This years theme is Out Is In with a focus on setting trends rather than following them. The hope is to get people to go outside, change their outlook and to get more involved in their community through parks and recreation. They are extending the challenge this year to get everyone outside more. Pack a picnic lunch and go to a park, hold a meeting or exercise class in the fresh air, step outside to brush your teeth, or even sleep out in the open (happy camping)! Check out their July challenge contest on http://www.nrpa.org/July-Challenge/ to try to win Amazon gift cards! When we spend time outdoors it improves our stress levels and mental health. Three in ten adults do not spend any time outdoors each day, and the things that are getting in the way of that are the TV, computers and smartphones. We need to put those things down for an extra half hour to an hour a day and get outside to get some fresh air, sunshine and exercise. We will all be better off for it. Bring your loved ones along and make it a family affair so you can reconnect with them as well!! UV Safety Month In a related issue, July is also UV Safety Month. UV radiation is the main cause of skin can cer and can cause eye damage including cataracts and macular degeneration, the primary c auses of vision loss in seniors. In addition, harmful UV exposure can weaken the immune system, increase sun spots and wrinkles, and lead to premature aging. Skin Cancer can be prevented! It takes planning and the proper use of sunscreens and protective clothing when you are outside in the suns damaging rays. Always apply sunscreen BEFORE you go outside and reapply at least every two hours or after swimming or excessive sweating. Wear protective clothing including a wide brimmed hat to cover exposed areas of the head and neck. Wear polarized sunglasses that block 99 to 100 percent of UV rays and wrap around to protect eyes from every angle. The American Cancer Society promotes a clever slogan that is easy to remember for ulti mate UV radiation protection: Slip! Slop! Slap! And Wrap. Slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, s lap on a hat and wrap on sunglasses. Every sunburn increases your chances of skin cancer in the future, protect yourself NOW!

Holly Gallagher Interlachen We asked our Facebook friends:What improvements would you like to see made in Putnam County?I would like to see the Cambridge program in all the S outh Putnam schools. Our children deserve it just as much as the children in the rest of the county. Busing our children all over the county should not have to be our only option. The potential is here why is South Putnam constantly being overlooked?

Nonymous Juliette Laurie Editor/Publisher Obama said this week that, There are no scandals in Washington, Well if you believe that, then you are either smoking too much legal weed, or your lobotomy needs to be reversed. Enough about Obozo, let me move on to something that we might be able to see eye to eye on. The national average for sexual predators is 14.03 offenders for every 10,000 peo ple, but in Putnam County the average for Sexual Predators is, 40.27 offenders for every 10,000 people, thats almost three times the national average. Yes, we have some sick people living in our county. The crimes committed by these individuals range from, possession of child pornography, lewd and lascivi ous acts on children, and rape. Most of the crimes are done to children between the ages of 12 to 15 years old. These crimes are not from any particular race either, the offenders are White, Black, Asian, Hispanic, or all of the above. Neither are these crimes committed by just males, but by females as well, they are and young and old. There is a difference between a sexual predator and a sexual offender. A Sexual offender is a person who has been convicted once of a sexual crime, but that crime was not sufciently horric to qualify that person as a sexual predator, according to law 943.0435(1)(a). A Sexual Predator is someone who has more than one conviction for a sex act, be it from child pornography, rape etc...and it was non-consensual sex. The reason for these two categories is for purpose of notication. The Sheriffs ofce, and police are required to notify the community about the presents of a sexual predator, but not a sexual offenders. So what is being done about these sick, sorry excuses for human beings? Since the 1990s, 20 states have passed a law that holds these sexual deviants account able, not only for past crimes but also future crimes. Its called the Civil Commit ment Law. When released from state prison, most criminals will go to Arcadia, Florida, and are held until a Judge deems them t to return to society. Almost 25% of the sexual offenders released last year committed a sex crime within six months of their release, and six found victims the day they were released. Governor, Rick Scott signed a new law not long ago that doubles the mandato ry minimum sentence for rapist who victimize children younger than 12. Today, these pedophiles will get 50 years in the state pen instead of 25 years, and cannot be released early for good behavior or any other reason. Here is a head count of the number of sexual offenders in the surrounding areas, according to the FDLE website. Seville 205, Welaka, Satsuma, and San Mateo 173, East Palatka 150, Palatka 131, Green Cove Springs 129, Crescent City 68, Pomona Park 64, Hastings 23, Putnam County has a total of 285. To see who is in your neighborhood visit the FDLE website at www.fdle.state..us or call toll free 1-888-357-7332 for more information. I realize that a few people should not be on this list, but the majority are guilty, and to those I say this, We the people of Putnam County, will not stand for your sick behavior, touch one of our children, and you will suffer! Nothing, and I mean nothing, is sicker, than a person that would have sex or touch a child in a sexual way! If you dont agree then there isnt a Hell hot enough for you. So what do you think is the solution for the growing population of sexual predators in our area? Write in and share your thoughts on this topic. Everyone has an opinion and this is mine. You might not agree with it, but, Thats How I See ItPutnam County overloaded with Sexual Predators Dear Editor: We want to thank the large number of people that attended the Red, White, and Boom fireworks display this year. The number was significantly higher than last year. It was possible due to the generous donations of Center State Bank, the Brooks family, WESNOFSKE Farms, the Crescent City CRA Committee, Peninsular Auto Parts NAPA, P&F Mini Storage, John Browning, Dudley Sargent, KLLB Inc., Jan Simpson, Producers Ave Hardware, The Parker House, Sheppards Garage, Patrick and Stepania Kennedy, the Geo Palacia family, and several anonymous donors. U.S. Blinds of Ormond Beach donated bottled water which was sold and the profits will be used toward the cost of the June 27, 2015 Red, White, and Boom. The Crescent City Public Works, Fire, and Police Departments provided security and fire watch. 3 Bananas provided the music and their Tiki Bar. We will continue working to provide a good family celebration next June. Robert L. Chayer, Commodore Crescent City Yacht Club The Putnam County Courier Journal welcomes your letters to the Editor.

That is, we would have a constitution like ev ery town has, our state has, a nd our country has. People could have a bona fide say in how our county operates. Rissi Cherie InterlachenRed, White and Boom with a Bang Dear Editor: Have you ever had a party and nobody showed up? Well, thats pretty much what happened with my petition signing on July 4. Not counting me, only eight people made it to my porch to show their sup port for Sargent Andrew Tahmooressi. However, I did hear from two l adies who came by after being at the veterans event at Winn Dixie that they and others were looking for the petition there. Unfortunate ly, I wasnt able to take the petition to Winn Dixie as it is against store p olicy. So, I sat there on my porch and waited and waited, and waited. I know we are a small town, but eight people? How pathetic is that? I surely must be missing something or am in some way misguided or perhaps just plain stupid for wanting out Federal Government to intercede on Andrews behalf. I just dont know. What I do know is that he had a hearing on July 9; the details of which remain undisclosed at this time, as far as I can determine, and he will remain in his Mexican jail cell until his next hearing which is reported to be scheduled for August 4. So petition be damned, Im going to keep sending letters and making calls. In closing, I want to tank those of you who took time out of your July 4 holiday to show your support. Peggy Trice Crescent CityPetition Update Dear Editor: One morning recently I was sitting outside watching, the sun come up like thunder out of Flagler across the Lake, when our water dog, Molly, came dashing out, all atremble, pacing back and forth, obviously scared to death. What? I heard no thunder, no gun shots no fireworks. Oh, a pileated woodpecker was calling, Kak, kak, kak. Molly associates that with the, peck, peck, peck, which must mean something terrifying to her. So I stood up and looked around for the perpetrator, to see not one, but four pileated woodpeckers on my neighbors palm tree. What a rare sight of this normally solitary bird which the oldtimers called the Lord God Bird because it was so awesome. Two were slightly smaller than the other two. And then the neighborhood red-shouldered hawk came swooping under the oak canopy headed their way. One adult woodpecker took off after him and kak-kaking loudly chased him all the way to Lake Stella! You just had to be there. Only in Old Florida! What a gift right in our own backyards. Happy to be home, Patricia Maden Crescent CityA Rare Sight Letter From Governor Rick Scott to U.S. Veteran Affairs Dear Mr. McDonald: You will soon enter the position of U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs with many challenges and high expectations. No doubt, you can agree that current conditions at Florida VA hospitals are unacceptable. Our veterans who have served with honor and distinction are not receiving the proper care, and when Florida health inspectors work to help Florida veterans, federal officials turn them away. You must end the VAs culture of secrecy and address the chronic and systematic problems that plague the federal VA healthcare system. Our expectation is that you allow Florida inspectors into your facilities and usher in a new era of transparency at the Veterans Administration. As the most military-friendly and veteran-friendly state in the country, we honor the men and women who wear the uniform and call Florida home, and we are disappointed at the way the VA hospitals in Florida have treated our brave veterans. The fake waiting lists, the lack of adequate care, the delays in treatment, and the mismanagement of personnel, paperwork and patient care are all unacceptable. As the chief health policy and planning entity for the state that licenses, inspects, and investigates consumer complaints, AHCA should have access to federal VA hospitals to inspect their processes and their facilities and I am asking you to grant this request. On eight separate occasions at six federal VA hospitals, however, state inspectors have been blocked by federal officials from carrying out their mission of ensuring facilities in Florida meet the healthcare needs of our veterans. I have instructed AHCA to sue the federal veterans affairs agency to shine a light on their activities and to help protect the lives of our heroes who have earned nothing short of access to the best care possible. Additionally, as we attempt to understand the scope of the troubles facing the VA, the agency must respond to Freedom of Information Act requests for public records. Our veterans served our nation with honor and distinction. For too long, the VA has failed to provide necessary and timely care to those who have fought and defended Americas freedoms. Fixing the broken federal VA hospital system on their behalf is a national priority, and transparency is critical to that mission. These issues cannot be fixed unless the American people know what the problems are, and transparency at every level must be a priority for your leadership. Sincerely Rick Scott, Governor

An Unforgettable Graduation Trip Angie DeYoung and her husband, Wes, from Crescent City, drove to Bow, New Hampshire to attend grandson, Joshs, high school graduation. His parents are Steven and Shari DeYoung. Their vacation trip began with driving to Roanoke, Virginia. At their hotel they were told about the hot breakfast that would be served starting at 6 a.m. They planned on leaving earlier, so the desk clerk said she was working a double shift and would have it ready an hour earlier for them. Nice! The second day brought changes in the form of low tire pres sure. A group of mo torcyclists helped them check all the tires un til everything was ok. When they arrived in Bow, New Hampshire it was 9:45 p.m. It was dark and raining and no streetlights. Their cell phone had gone to the great beyond. They couldnt nd the road that led to their sons home. Finally, Angie said lets stop at any house with the lights on and ask for direc tions. The people there were very accommodat ing and the gentleman was familiar with their sons neighborhood. He got out his car and led them to their sons house. The following day was really spe cial of course as their grandson was gradu ating from high school. He is a member of the National Honor Society and a member of the senior class senate. He will be attending Holy Cross University in Worcester, Massachu setts in the fall. On Monday they went to Boston. They walked a part of the Freedom Trail, saw the Old North Church and a statue of Paul Revere, and had lunch at the old Union Oyster House. It has been open continuously since 1826. They said the best part was com ing home. Angie and Wes DeYoung with their grandson, Josh at his graduation. Joshs maternal grandfather, Larry Laliberte, is in the back.

ardo replied, Yes, and youll see the reason why in just a minute. Please allow me to take you to the day Eduardo became a Hero. It was Sunday, March 23, around 7 p.m. The temperature outside is 72 degrees. So far its been a great day and Eduardo is sitting back watching Cops on TV, but that would all change with the ringing of his phone. As Eduardo said hel lo, his mother said, Get home now, its an emergency. Eduardo ran down the street as fast as he could go, not knowing what the emer gency was all about. E duardo opens up the door to his mothers house, and as he enters the living room, he sees the problem. Eduardos 24 year old brother is stretched out on the sofa. Eduaros older brother is holding his chest and gasping for air. Eduardo said, That only lasted for a few seconds, then he passed out! Instead of freaking out, Eduardo remained calm and went into action. Checking for a pulse he felt noth ing. Tilting his brothers h ead back, he listened for air coming from his lungs, but nothing. In less than a few seconds, his brothers life was ending, right before his very eyes. I knew I had to remain calm, Eduar do said. Mom, Call 911! In stantly Eduardo started p erforming CPR on his brother. Eduardo tilted his brothers head back, then two breaths were given, then thirty push es on the chest, just like S argent Pelehach had taught him, but nothing. Again, two puffs, then thirty compressions, and again nothing! Eduardo knows from his training, he only had a few minutes before it was all over. Then it hap pened, his brother start ed breathing, but just a s quickly as he started breathing, he quit again. Eduardo said, I nev er lost faith as I start ed giving him CPR for t he second time. With the Welaka fire depart ment pulling up, Eduar do never stopped giving C PR to his brother until the first responders took over. Let me give you the di rect quote from the email M aster Sargent gave me from Mr. Richard Back, the Chief of the Welaka Fire Department. We were dispatched to Ap ple Ave. for Eduardos b rother who was not breathing. Upon my ar rival, Eduardo was per forming CPR on his Old er Brother. His training a nd willingness to per form CPR was life saving f or his brother. We need more fine young men like Eduardo. According to Eduar do, his brother had run o ut of his high blood presser medicine, and that caused his brothers heart to stop beating. The older brother has recovered and is doing fine. I have to admit, when Sargent Pelehach told me about Eduardo, I expected to meet a young man who would be wearing his pants pulled half way down with an attitude, like so many 18 year olds today, but instead I met a fine young man who is go ing to school in Palatka t o become a firefighter and paramedic. By day Eduardo cleans floors at the, Lakewood Nurs ing Center, in Crescent C ity and also volunteers at, The Future Little Learning Center, also in Crescent City. If that wasnt enough to keep him busy Eduardo also volunteers at Fire sta tion #3 in Crescent City. E uarado hopes to com plete school soon and b ecome a Fire Chief one day, and maybe further his career by becoming a doctor. In closing Eduardo wanted me to give Mas ter Sargent Pelehach a m essage, Thank you sir for taking the time to teach me and to give me the skills to save my brothers life. Eduardo also wanted me to give you the readers, and his Mom and Dad a mes sage as well. T o the readers, Appre ciate what you have in l ife, because tomorrow you could lose it in a split second. To Eduardos Mother and Father, Mom and Dad, thank you for put ting me through school, a nd for always standing behind me. I love you! As you can see, this story isnt just about a young man saving his brothers life, but a teach er who cared enough t o teach. A young man, who chose not to ignore but listen and learn, A Mother and Father who love their son enough to stand behind him, and a fire chief who thought this young mans story needed to be told. I hope that some of our county officials will read this story and rec ognize Mr. Eduardo Ara gon as a local hero. Im s ure I speak for all the community when I say, Thank you, to all the people involved in this story, for taking the time to bring it to life. If you dont know CPR then I hope you will take the time to learn it. I hope to be able to do a video interview with Master Sargent Pelehach in the near future, to teach anyone who wants to learn CPR. This Video will be posted on the Putnam County Couri er Facebook page soon.

On Saturday, July 12, the young ladies from South Putnam played softball in Deland for the Sec tional 3 Champion ship. The playoffs took p lace at the Chipper Jones Family Fields in Pierson against Yulee All-Stars (District 11 Champs). In game one Sat urday morning, the M ean Guppies lost to Yulee, the final score was 10-8. In game two The mean Guppies would come back and take over the game in the bottom of the seventh with an RBI single (coupled with and error by the Yulee team) by Reynolds to send Sarah Hamling in for the final run. The final score was 8-7. In game three, Sunday morning the Mean Guppies would win the championship during the top of the seventh with a strike out by Reynolds. The Final was score 8-6. The mean Guppies are our very own girls softball team. In all there are 10 young la dies on this team. Of t he 10 young ladies, there are still three original Guppies from the fall of 2010 on this team. The three orig inal Mean Guppies s oftball players are, Kalin, Sarah, Kylee. This spring, four girls will be ineligible for play due to their ages, Sarah, Kylee, Brianna, and Kalin. The rest of the players have sever al seasons until they a re too old to play. This coming week end these young la dies will be playing i n the State playoffs in Plant City. Start ing on Friday, July 18, t o Sunday, July 20,... Friday and Saturday are elimination games, and Sunday is the championship game. Double elimination. Since last season these ten young ladies have been working their fannies off to get to this point, and now they need our help. In order for these young ladies to represent us in the state playoffs, they need to come up with a minimal of $2,500. The money needed will cover fuel, lodging, food, shirts, ice, power aid or sports drinks, shirts, etc There are several places donations can be dropped off. The First Coast Com munity Credit Union l ocated at 112 N. Sum mit St. in Crescent C ity, (386)698-1883; tell the manager that you would like to do nate to SPLL, per Dave o r Kathy Goff. The Center State Bank located at 500 N. Summit St. in Cres cent City, 386-6981 982, ask for Lisa and tell her you would like to donate to the girls Mean Guppies softball team. The Courier Journal located at 330 N. Sum mit St. Crescent City ( 386)698-1644. In closing let me say this, I know these are hard times and these young ladies are not asking you to give the whole $2,500. I know a lot of people might think, I only have a dollar, and that wont make a difference, but it will. I ask you to put yourself in these little ladies shoes for one moment. Just imag ine the heartbreak y ou would feel if you had been practicing all year for this one game, and because WE, the community let you down, you were un able to go. These kids r epresent us and we need to support them. Congratulations Mean Guppies on your play off win and for ad vancing to the state pl ayoffs.Last week I gave a general introduction to herbs and spices and how to select, use and store them in. This week I am going to be gin to talk about spe cific ones, an herb or a s pice weekly. Some of them will be famil iar; others may be new t o you. Hopefully you will gain new insight on them all and also be in spired to try something n ew with each of them to give your food a new and different twist. Vanilla Orchid Green Vanilla Pods History The history of vanilla is very mysterious and reads like a tale out of a storybook. The ancient myth of the Totonaca Indians was that the Princess Xanat was driven from her home for wanting to marry a mortal and the two were eventually be headed in the forest as a result of their love. Where their blood was spilled an orchid vine sprang up in its place and it produced a fruit that was harvested by the Indians as what we know as Vanilla. Even tually, it was seized by t he Aztec Kings and mixed with the choc olate drink that was of fered to Hernando Cortez which is how it eventually made it back to Europe and the New World, along with choc olate. I n 1602, Hugh Mor gan, an English apoth ecary to the Queen f ound that it could be used as a flavoring on its own. In 1793 a vine was smuggled to the is land of Runion which i s part of the Bour bon Islands along with M adagascar, Mauritius, Comoro and Seychelles, which are just east of the southern portion of Africa. The vine grew well and flowered but the vine was not pro ducing fruit the way it d id in Mexico. It was soon discovered that the secret was a tiny bee that was pollinat ing the plant in its na tive Mexico. In 1841 E dmond Albious, of Runion devised a way to pollinate the flowers by hand. This allowed the plants to produce fruit and that began the successful vanilla farming in the Bour bon Islands and in oth er countries, such as T ahiti and Indonesia. It was because of this that vanilla became available to people ev erywhere, not just the r ich and it quickly took its place as the worlds most popular flavor. Uses Today we use vanil la for everything from c ooking and baking, the cosmetic industry uses it for its aroma in perfumes and aroma therapy and it is used m edicinally as well. Many of the vanilla extracts that are found in stores are actual ly artificial in nature a nd are made from the bark of other plants that simply mimic the aroma of vanilla, but have none of the true benefits. Real vanilla is a good source of man ganese, copper and ri boflavin or vitamin B2. I t has antioxidant prop erties and is used in m any cultures for the purposes of treating patients with a compro mised immune system, a s well as those with a fever, tooth ache, as a stimulant, as a seda tive and as an aphro disiac. S ince there is no good way to know for sure if what you are buying is a pure extract of the best quality, I recom mend either using the w hole bean and scrap ing the seed from inside o r even making your own extract. Homemade Vanilla Extract Ingredients 3 to 5 vanilla beans (Mountain Rose Herbs) 8 ounces alcohol such as vodka, bourbon, brandy, or rum Equipment Cutting board and knife Clean jar or bottle (Available online at Specialty Bottle) New bottle(s) for packaging (optional) Small funnel (option al) C offee filter (optional) Instructions Split the vanilla beans: Split each vanilla bean in half lengthwise. Place the vanilla beans in a jar and cover with alcohol: Place the vanilla beans in a clean jar or bottle. Cover them with alcohol, making sure they are com pletely submerged. C over the jar or bot tle and give it a good s hake. Infuse for at least one month: Store the jar or bottle of vanilla beans in a cool, dark place for at least one month, shaking it from time to time. Strain it if you like: You may wish to re move the vanilla pods a nd decant the ex tract into a pretty b ottle. Or leave the pods in the extract: You can also leave the beans in the alcohol and top off the bottle as you use the extract. This recipe can be made ahead of time and given as a gift for the holidays as well to friends and family. You can also experiment w ith different vanil la beans and different c ombinations of alcohol to get different flavors of vanilla to use as well. Dont be afraid to ex periment! I f you split a vanilla bean and use the seeds from the inside, do not discard the hull. Place it in a tightly sealed container with some white or raw sugar and let it sit for a couple of weeks and shake it occasionally. You will soon have vanilla sugar to bake with or flavor your coffee or tea with. Aromatherapy Who doesnt love the smell of a vanilla cake baking in the oven or the thought of someone handing you a vanilla ice cream cone to bright en your day? It is a prov en fact that the aroma l ifts the spirits of young and old alike. It soothes anxiety and stress and can even help to lower blood pressure. Adding a little vanilla oil to a warm bath can chase away a case of the blues. Its no wonder the cos metic industry picked u p on its ability to at tract the attention of the o pposite sex as it a scent common in both mens and womens fragrances. These days in the pub lishing world, anything r eferred to as vanilla is simple, pure, honest and plain. We now know that if you use the pure form of Vanilla, it can result in tastes and aromas that are exotic and exciting to the senses. Dont be shy about experiment ing with this powerful s pice and awaken your taste buds! Until Next Time, Stay Healthy!

Sure enough the day of the event, and right on time the bounce house arrived and within a matter of minutes it was up and running.
