When you ask anyone what their favorite flowers are the first answer that usually always comes out first is roses. The main reason for this is the beauty of them along with all the varieties and colors that are available as well. Pink Roses are one of the more popular varieties and women love them anytime of the year just give some and you will see what I am talking about. 1800flowers have one of the biggest selections around and should be looked at especially if you are planning to send some to a loved one.
For most long stem roses are the way to go as nothing beats a dozen of these beauties to brighten some one's day. Now if you have a real special lady than a dozen red roses will definitely do the trick for you. Roses continue to popular and with new varieties coming out every year that should only increase.

After watching the footage of Flight 1549 and everything they went through it was amazing to me that no lives were lost. You can credit the pilot for do a wonderful job and the crew as well. Rescue teams were there pretty fast as well which makes all the difference. It is still amazing to me, but I am glad no one died in this crash.
Hopefully we will be able to find out what went wrong so this does not happen again. At least no lives were lost and it looks like someone was watching over this flight. Called it a gift from God or whatever you want they were very lucky indeed.
