One of New York's Bravest

I just had to blog about my cousin, Dean Tartaro, a New York City Firefighter. The head line reads:

Bravest save 5 in daring rescue from Coney Island cruise nightmare.

It is still a humid hot day here in the Bronx. My garden is so lush and blooming.Today a baby Blue Jay fell out of his nest and the parents were very loud and boisterous about it. I gently picked up the baby and placed him on a fountain that is not in use here. He seemed ok .. just frightened.

The parent Blue Jays were letting me know that they were not leaving their little one, so I quietly went in the house, waited around 20 minutes, went back out to check and the baby Blue Jay was gone.

I'm hoping the parents took him back to the nest. One never knows with nature. So I will hope for the best.!!

Be sure to care for your skin, especially when in the sun. Moisturize and remember to use sunblock, drink lots of liquids and hydrate your skin when ever possible.

My favorite to use is the Geranium Hydrosol or Rose Hydrosol, to read about hydrosols, please visit our page: SunRose Hydrosol Page.

Also, for sunburns, rashes and moisturizing your face our cooling Aloe Vera & Seaweed Gel is just wonderful for your skin. For more information please visit: SunRose Aloe Vera & Seaweed Gel.

The lazy days of summer are upon us .. or 'summer hours' .. it is so important to remember to take some time for yourself and rest.

until next time,

Great story about your cousin...too bad the boat owner wasn't more knowledgable about the waters he was in.

What a great story about your cousin! That's one that could so easily have been a tragedy. Also, you did exactly the right thing with the baby jay. They're such intelligent birds that the parents will either get the baby back to the nest or to a safe place in the bushes where they can continue to care for him until he's big enough to fly.
