OK I found it. Wow what a website. I will have to get back to it and check out everything.

Yes that is an amazing story about Burts Bees. You know I have to mention this, that the natural cosmetics I have been making without any chemical preservatives have gotten a much bigger response than I would have imagined. And it is not because I made such unbelievable products. From what I am reading and hearing, women are fed up with the mass produced cosmetics out on the market and are looking for natural products that are good for the skin. So if anyone wants to start up a serious business right now producing really pure cosmetics without all the horrible preservatives, this seems to be the time to do it.

Since I started this venture with the cosmetics, (I have made, lipbalms, hand creams, body butter and healing balms) I have been looking around the stores to see what kind of ingredients are put into most of the creams and lotions on the market. What a shock to see so many chemicals that are introduced into products that are absorbed into the skin. I will never go back to purchasing any of that stuff anymore.

Thank you for sharing this story with me. I truly believe that women was correct when she said you just have to believe you can do it.

Sincerely
Annette

Annette, OK, my dear girlfriend.  YOu know that there is going to come a time that you are going to have to offer a little course to us girls that would love to learn your little tricks of your trade, smiling.  You ought to pat yourself on the back, and I hope that you can make some pocket change to pay for the output of the stuff it takes to get your product to the world.  Good luck, you are cool!!!  Have that wonderful and most awesome day, life, health.  Cindi

You have given me a great idea Seth. I have a friend designing another logo for me and maybe she can place the red umbrella over the bee. Like having the bee holding the umbrella. I will find out.

My logo, if I ever go there, is going to be a drawing my father made of a bee holding a bucket...a honey bucket.  The double entrandre just kills me.
