Flower Astrology: Scorpio Horoscope Oct 25-Nov 22

Zodiac Sign: Known as the most intense of the zodiac signs, Scorpios are both powerful and passionate. Their tenacity and willpower are immense, their conviction strong (if not at times overwhelming), and yet Scorpios are also deeply sensitive and easily moved by their emotions. When inspired, it’s said that those born under this water sign can exceed limits in almost all endeavors. In fact, Scorpios are said to be more likely to become geniuses than those born under any other zodiac sign.

Birth Sign Flower: Indulge the sensual and passionate Scorpio with a floral bouquet of lush red peonies. With their luxuriously full shape and bold, passionate red color, these flowers embody both a sense of romance (a complement to the Scorpio’s sensitivity) and power. Also regarded an as omen of good fortune and prosperity, they’re a fitting match for the Scorpio’s fierce potential.

It is always inspiring to read about the bosses who create great work environments for their team during our annual contest to find Eugene’s Best Boss.

Eugene’s Best Boss for 2011 was named Tuesday during a grand reveal to Gena Yarbrough of Oregon Medical Group. We received a total of 9 individual entries for her nomination and it was clear that her staff valued and appreciated the leadership Gena brings to their job. Here are some comments that were made about Gena:

“Gena is the best boss because she is friendly and easy to talk to about anything…I have never seen her mad. She keeps the clinic running as smooth as possible. Even when she has a hundred things going on, she will stop to listen to us.”      

The news team at KVAL was along for the big surprise and really made Gena feel special. Check out the video here…

In addition to Gena, we selected two runners-up for the title: Jay Carter, a principal at Maple Elementary School in Springfield and Donna White, a manager at Windermere Real Estate.

First Design Class was a blast!

We held our first design class here at Dandelions last Wednesday and our instructors and attendees had so much fun! Everyone wanted to know when the next class was going to be so we are working on putting another one together hopefully before Christmas.

There were a few mother-daughter teams and everyone left with their own wreath to decorate their home. Some of the girls got their Martha Stewart mojo on and added extra touches to personalize their wreath even more. The class was such a hit and we can’t wait to host another one soon!

The addition of spiders and cobwebs made this wreath creepy for Halloween
