Mojito's appropriate for this occassion?
1. Make simple syrup: Heat equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan until just before boiling and stir until the sugar has completely dissolved. Make up a big batch – say a cup of sugar and a cup of water – than toss it in the fridge … it’ll easily keep for a couple of weeks, during which time you’ll be able to whip up mojitos at a moment’s notice, to the delight of your very fortunate friends.
2. Place the mint leaves and 1 tbsp. of the simple syrup (cooled) in the glass, then squish it all around with a spoon (or whatever appropriate utensil you can find) for 20-30 seconds, until you can smell that good minty smell. . what you'll need:
2˝ oz. light rum
1 lime
1 tbsp. simple syrup
mint leaves (8 or so sprigs worth)
ice
club soda
tall glass
spoon, or some other utensil that can be used to mash the mint leaves
3. Cut the lime in half. Squeeze the juice out from both halves into the glass, then drop one half into the glass.
4. Pour in the rum and stir.
5. Add plenty of ice, then top off the mixture with club soda. Garnish with a sprig of mint and enjoy!

Holy crap, that RollingStone story sends shivers as I consider what my 2 year old has had injected lately.

I didn't know Terri's post was moved to Spam, as I've been extremely busy working with Terri/Landlord/Brokers/Vendors/Contractors to get our 2nd location off the ground.

As a salon owner, I welcome any veteran or outsider who has input to make the industry better. Do I have time to research this? Nope, but I'd support any effort to help. I was under the impression that SmartTan or *gulp* "the other one" would do this, but I've been disappointed with what I've observed in the last year or so. So I find myself in the unfamiliar realm of completely, without exception, agreeing with Sheila, Ramcat and Engfant on this topic.

I'll leave it at that before I start something I don't have time to finish

Sol Sister...You have made some very valid points. However, any attempt to place any type of injunction agains them will be fruitless. They are sprouting data from research. As long as their data is accurate, we cannot dispute it. However, but placing out proven information in the same type of media, we are making our points known. It may not be the strongest move, but it is a move in the right direction by getting the TOTAL information out and not that info that only the AMA wants out.

Shelia and those that wish to start a lawsuit need to research the medical journals and the thousends of research papers that have been written and published before going forward. The have the majority of the ammunition. We have very little. Ours is just now beginning to come out and some want to start a war using pop-guns.

Don't be too sure that there are not lotion manufacturers that won't back us once we begin. I think you'll be surprised.

If you read the posts, you'll see that I am in favor of getting things going and have already don so. It may not entail a war party, but I'll go to the media with the proven documentation that cannot be disputed; I'll print out my newsletter for my customers and place a lot of them in the local restaurants and other public places to be read by the general public. I'm doing those thing that I know that I can do that the AMA and derm's cannot do anything about because they 've approved that documentation themselves. That's how you hit them from behind. You their own weapons.

Typical.

This site has removed from view the entire thread started by Terri in the Industry Pro's private forum.... and from what I can *see* it has not been moved BACK to the private forum.....

Censorship by morons has caused wars greater than this.....

and derailing a topic with moronic dribble has become the Trade Mark of some of the moderators here.

www.simplytantexas.com does not allow this type of unethical moderator behavior and I will be discussing this issue there..... when www.tanformation.com is back up - - we will be able to keep up with the ongoing discussions that could actually be the FINAL NEED TO FIGHT BACK.... for those with the intelligence and the balls to do so.

Thanks for letting me post here again {albeit a shorter time than normal }

Fear is the 3 meals a day served to cowards

I'm sure that Engfant will have a few things to say at tanformation.com, but that is not the only game in town. tantyme.com has been discussing this issue for a very ong time. We were laughing that we saw it here, but also happy that it is taking off in all of the forums.

A tanning forum that gives you a free tan just for joining? I'll be on a flight tomorrow...

The entire industry is f'd up and we are all to blame. We are in an industry much like the food industry where there are trillions of dollars to be made but there is so much competition and oversaturation of the market place that everyone is losing and with the multi-billion dollar pharma industry breathing down our necks in a very public way, nothing will ever be solved with us te\aring each other apart. I'm no hippy but c'mon, chill out. Have a beer bro. It's just business after all.

* the above post clearly exposes the mentality of the poster....

the effort to unite salon owners with or without the help of the ITA SmartTan and the MFGS has been an ongoing saga for over 7 years... read that 7 long years....

But if Ramcat wants to suggest HE and Tantyme are the chicken that laid the egg ... I'm kewl with that....

What I am not kewl with is wasting my time and energy ----- which is why I declined their request (on Tantyme) that I become involved in their effort - - - been there, done that and sold the skrewen t-shirt on E-bay!

I have ALOT of respect for Bob in Ohio.... and would normally never deny him anything - aside from making some valid suggestions on how to set up the Non for Profit and the State Membership comittiees.... I would not activley 'help' - - - not due to the personal conflicts I have with some salon owners.....

In the vast scheme of things - - - - personal conflicts are the equvilant to gnat poopoo in the Universe..... when the GOAL is to be achieved - personal differences can be put aside....

but in my honest opinion - - - after being involved in all sorts of failed efforts to SAVE THE TANNING WORLD.... Terri Fransen's is the only effort that makes sense, uses real logic, documents real facts that I will support.

Please note I have never said people should not take Tantymes efforts seriously.... never popped a squat and accused them of having agendas, or questioned their ethics....

That was all provided to Terri by Ramcat and pals.

Seriously - - - the industry is currently its own worst enemy

There are many in this industry that did nothing to make it better, but you cannot say everyone is to blame. There are some that don't even know that they have issues. Some that just won't or refuse to become involved. There is money to be made and saturation, as with any industry that showed a plus potential to make money. Tht is the nature of the business. Like having a McDonalds and Burger King across the street from each other.

If you want to make an impact on something you have to become passionate about it. Otherwise, you are a follower.

I'll give Shelia her due. She is passionate about how she feels just as I am passionate about my views. That is what makes things happen and that is how people get together to form association, groups, etc. If you want to be part of this, become passionate, otherwise, have your beer.
