Demystifying the Ancient Health Balancing System for All of the Rest of Us!
Most of us know of Ayurveda, the ancient Indian spiritual and healing wisdom, is that some people swear by its restorative impact, it has something to do with botanicals and there are a growing number of practitioners and products that adhere to it today. Otherwise, it's pretty much a mystery.

Chanukah, oh Chanukah, come light the menorah! Thus begins the catchy children's song on which the background music to our new card is based.
Hanukkah is unusually late this year, starting on 24th December and running for eight days until January 1st, so the timing is just right to send this card to all your Jewish friends!
And Christmas Day is nearly upon us too, so it seems like a good time to review the season's bumper crop of new cards. We've had the nostalgic White Christmas, the interactive fun of Christmas Lights, the delightful story of The Little Shepherd, and the destructive mayhem of Snow Glow – not to mention two pretty new note cards.

Eid al-Fitr (Arabic: عيد الفطر ʻĪd al-Fiṭr, IPA: [ʕiːd al fitˤr], "festival of breaking of the fast"), is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting (sawm). The religious Eid is a single day during which Muslims are not permitted to fast. The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan. The day of Eid, therefore, falls on the first day of the month of Shawwal. The date for the start of any lunar Hijri month varies based on the observation of new moon by local religious authorities, so the exact day of celebration varies by locality.
Eid al-Fitr has a particular Salat (Islamic prayer) consisting of two Rakats (units) and generally … [Continue reading...]
