Spring wishes for the weekend

The first primula came through, the sun is shining and not even the letter from Juvena bothers me today (telling me that they invested a lot in the name, and I could buy it if I want. ....well, I would if I could....)
More about this developing story next week! (how about "campfire memories", "Prairie memories","Sommerville memories"....?)

My best wishes for the weekend and did you know there is a auricula and primula society?

That's so disapointing about the name. I was quite excited by the Lonestar one. I think that Prairie Memories and Campfire Memories sound good. Thinking about the Lonestar name makes me wonder, it is a common name for Texas, the Lonestar State, I wonder how they can copyright the name? A number of years ago a Reiki organisation tried to copyright the name 'Reiki' and they were unsuccessful because it was a commonly used name for a certain healing technique, I am actually a Reiki Master.

It's amazing how the weather has warmed up so quickly. It's only a couple of weeks since I was watching all that snow falling on Zurich from the Zurich webcam. We are very wet and windy in the north of England.

Have a great weekend Andy!

Dear Barry
I wonder too. I was told in the letter that they have protected the name, it seems that the protection is internationally. We will see... let's look at it as a challenge. Lonestar was very exciting, indeed, but Prairie Memories might even be better (I just hope that the company La Prairie won't interfer. Funny thing on the side: La Prairie and Juvena at the end belong to the same consortium... hehehe
I am impressed and bow my head in front of the master.

No need to bow my dear friend, just call me sir!........LOL!

I just did a google search on the word lonestar, this is the amount of links it came up with...


Out of interest, I presume it's the word 'Lonestar' that they have registered. I wonder if splitting the words up as 'Lone Star' would make any difference? Just a thought on this dreary Saturday afternoon.

I just realised that links don't copy across. Sorry about that. Anyway, if you do a search for lonestar, you will see what I mean.

No! That was terrible news. Loved the lonestar name. I'm sure you will come up with a new one equally good, though.

That's bad news! But I'm shure you will find another name, maybe we all can brainstorm together and find the perfect name.....Texas memories? Countryside memories?

I must say, Sommerville is such an idyllic name, with its sound of summer and the small-town nostalgia of -ville. Why not just call it Sommerville?

Prairie is a good name too, and you could use it as a modifier for just about anything (Prairie Noon, Prairie Sky, Prairie Star, etc.). Hmm. You'll come up with something, I know it.

Dear Andy

I find it very hard to understand how they can monopolise the word 'lonestar' completely - when yours is called 'lonestar memories' anyway - they surely couldn't do that? - because that would preclude anyone using the word in any combination with anything - and surely that can't be right?

I'm a member of the auricula society! Love show auriculas.

Heather - who is miffed on your behalf! You are always so calm and sanguine - me I somp about and have hissy hits! You'll never be devilled with ulcers that is for sure!

ps: actually I meant 'stomp' and 'hissy fits' !!! I can't spell for toffee!!

Dear Viktor,dear Jenny
I loved the name, too and have not given up yet.... there still is a little bit of hope.

Dear Tania
And here's a private detail about Sommerville: close to College Station there is Lake Sommerville with a small steak house. I loved to go there and enjoy the best steaks you could get within 200 miles around College Station. Sommeville is nice, but right now I prefer Prairie memories....

And yes, my dear Heather,
I will not get a stomach ulcer.... but this has more to do with the fact that my stomache is as tough as the leather made from a 30 year old cow, which peacefully found her death while sleeping on a Swiss Alp...

Ah, I have to admit Prairie Memories sounds good to me - but I grew up in the prairies of South Dakota, so perhaps this is terribly, terribly biased of me ;) I am sure you will find a good solution that you like and that fits for you.
