Cialis non prescription where can i get viagra online forum viagra online Does Insurance Cover ED Treatment? Insurance coverage of ED depends upon the type of treatment prescribed. If there is a documented medical condition that is shown to be causing ED, insurance will usually cover at least some of it. Sex therapy and medications that have not yet been approved by the FDA, however, are generally not covered. Talk to your insurance provider to determine if the treatment you are considering will be covered. Many common medications for treating hypertension, depression, and high blood lipids can contribute to erectile dysfunction (see above). Treatment of hypertension is an example. There are many different types (classes) of anti-hypertensive medications (medications that lower blood pressure); these include beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, diuretics (medications that increase urine volume), angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors), and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs). Anti-hypertensives may be used alone or in combination to control blood pressure. Different classes of anti-hypertensives have different effects on erectile function. Inderal (a beta blocker) and hydrochlorothiazide (a diuretic) are known to cause erectile dysfunction, while calcium channel blockers and ACE inhibitors do not seem to affect erectile function. On the other hand, angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) such as losartan (Cozaar) and valsartan (Diovan) may actually increase sexual appetite, improve sexual performance, and decrease erectile dysfunction. Therefore, choosing an optimal anti-hypertensive combination is an important part of treating erectile dysfunction. Vacuum devices - There are several different devices. Basically, you put your penis into a plastic container. A pump then sucks out the air from the container to create a vacuum. This causes blood to be drawn into the penis and cause an erection. When erect, a rubber band is placed at the base of the penis to maintain the erection. The plastic container is then taken off the penis and the penis remains erect until the rubber band is removed (which must be removed within 30 minutes). Penile erection is managed by two mechanisms: the reflex erection, which is achieved by directly touching the penile shaft, and the psychogenic erection, which is achieved by erotic or emotional stimuli. The former uses the peripheral nerves and the lower parts of the spinal cord, whereas the latter uses the limbic system of the brain. In both conditions, an intact neural system is required for a successful and complete erection. Stimulation of the penile shaft by the nervous system leads to the secretion of nitric oxide (NO), which causes the relaxation of smooth muscles of corpora cavernosa (the main erectile tissue of penis), and subsequently penile erection. Additionally, adequate levels of testosterone (produced by the testes) and an intact pituitary gland are required for the development of a healthy erectile system. As can be understood from the mechanisms of a normal erection, impotence may develop due to hormonal deficiency, disorders of the neural system, lack of adequate penile blood supply or psychological problems. Restriction of blood flow can arise from impaired endothelial function due to the usual causes associated with coronary artery disease, but can also be caused by prolonged exposure to bright light. buy cialis online safety buy cialis Counselling - Sometimes couple counselling, or sex therapy is useful. These are most useful if certain psychological problems are the cause of, or the result of, ED. In some cases, sex therapy is used in addition to another treatment option. cheap levitra online uk levitra online What Is Inhibited Sexual Desire? Inhibited desire, or loss of libido, refers to a decrease in desire for, or interest in sexual activity. Reduced libido can result from physical or psychological factors. It has been associated with low levels of the hormone testosterone. It also may be caused by psychological problems, such as anxiety and depression; medical illnesses, such as diabetes and high blood pressure; certain medications, including some antidepressants; and relationship difficulties. cheap cialis online usa cialis online without prescription kamagra online next day kamagra online pharmacy Erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is the inability to get and maintain an erection that is sufficient for satisfactory sexual intercourse.
Patricia Rose
Written by Linda White-Francis   
Tuesday, 23 December 2008 00:00
patricia-rose-goddess-celestaPatricia Rose is a “girlie-girl” kind of woman. When she joined the Women’s Army Corp in the late 1960s, she showed up for basic training wearing a sexy dress, white gloves, high heels and a wide-brimmed hat, with matching white luggage in tow. She swears the 1980 movie Pvt. Benjamin, starring Goldie Hawn, must have been written about her.

Always in step with the arts even while serving her country, she trained in photography. During the evenings, she used her talents by teaching photography and pottery-making in a special services military craft shop. Serving in the army, later came in handy for Rose when she went to art school on the GI Bill.

A native of Columbus, Ohio, Rose is a long way from her early roots living in the heartland, where she attended 12 years of Catholic schools, modeled for an agency in high school and later, via scholarship, went to the Columbus College of Art and Design. “I went to art school during the day and modeled for the fashion illustration classes in the evenings,” she recalls.

Along the way, Rose married, had one daughter, moved to Tennessee and started a home-building construction company with her husband at the time. “I designed houses and floor plans, arranged for loans, purchased materials and physically helped with all stages of construction, from pouring concrete to roofing.” The hard work, Rose says, gave her the valuable know-how it takes to develop a keen business head. In due course, she taught mechanical and residential drafting at a voc-tech school and designed for the Ethan Allen Co.

Rose has lived in places all over the map, including Texas, where she worked as an illustrator and ad designer for a magazine; Maryland, where she worked as an illustrator, layout artist and typesetter for a publishing company; and Tennessee, where she went back to college at the Memphis Academy of Arts. It was while in the Central American country of Belize, she was inspired by a couple from Kentucky who owned an art shop. They encouraged her in the field of making art dolls. “One day I picked up a piece of clay they gave me, and I have been hooked on sculpting one-of-a-kind (OOAK) dolls ever since.” Rose was surprised to discover all of her talents and knowledge could be enveloped into this new art form of sculpting dolls. “When I finally found something to combine all of my interests and loves, I made it my profession. It was my destiny.”

Rose took a huge, humble leap of faith in 1992, traveling to New York City’s annual Toy Fair and presenting her first sculpted porcelain doll, 18-inch “Delta Dawn.” Subsequently, Rose won a coveted DOLLS Awards of Excellence prize. “After that, I went to Toy Fair 10 years in a row, marketing dolls,” she notes. Rose continued to improve and won several more first place awards for her exquisite dolls. The most recent award she received was for “Morgan,” a 21-inch bride doll, winning her a DOLLS Awards of Excellence nod in the fashion doll category. She has not entered competitions since then.

Additionally, Rose has designed dolls for the likes of Paradise Galleries, the Miss America Organization and the “Home Shopping Network.” She also appeared on that show, as well as on a Viacom infomercial.

Today after 20 years of sculpting some of the most beautiful and unique dolls in the world and with numerous achievements under her belt, the gifted artist continues the steady pace of a professional. Never tiring, Rose is especially interested in creating new art dolls in polymer clay for her avid collectors. “They do not teach art dollmaking in college so I am self-taught,” she says, “and one of the best decisions I made was to learn the art of mold-making. It comes in handy on a daily basis with my business now.”

patricia-rose-pink-fairyWhat would bedridden most people, Rose accomplishes with boundless energy. Always excited about her newest projects—for example, several 10-inch to 12-inch “Lady Fairies” molds due out next year—she strives for unique ways to capture her patrons’ interest in fantasy. “The molds are being developed for porcelain doll crafters,” she says. The beginning of 2009 will usher in the beautiful collection of miniature porcelain 1/12-scale lady doll molds made for miniature dollhouses or other small settings. The dolls that can be made from these molds will have many different head/torsos, leg designs and arm poses to choose from because the parts are all interchangeable. Another project on Rose’s horizon is an open edition of what she lovingly calls her Fantasy Work, a line of small resin fairies and mermaid figurines.

To keep her passion for sculpting going, Rose has dedicated a minimum of three days per week to do nothing but create in her studio. Her “fairy enchanting” home studio in Bradenton, Fla., sets the mood to get the creative flow going. “For me sculpting is an absolute escape from real life,” the high-spirited artist confides. “I have found my life’s ambition and total fulfillment in doing what I do and living on the sunny Gulf shores of the most beautiful spot on earth. I am a very happy girl,” she says of her dream-come-true setting, all made possible through her very own successful doll business. “I love living on the water. I feel so blessed to have the chance to live the way I do.”

Rose now works for three direct marketing companies, producing figurines and ornaments in resin and polymer. Additionally, she sells on eBay: her new love. “It is becoming a prominent way to show and sell your work,” she says.

Rose loves teaching dollmaking and markets a line of her own DVDs, press molds, patterns, tools and supplies, all to help new artists. “When I started in the doll business, there really was no one to learn from and only a few books available that were on modern dollmaking. I could find nothing on polymer dolls. I went into porcelain dolls but did it my way, which is very different from the old school methods of porcelain dollmaking. I am currently in the middle of writing a book for beginners and intermediate students titled How to Sculpt Beautiful, Fantasy, Females in Polymer Clay, and the next book will be on beautiful lady dolls in porcelain, which is what I’m famous for. I really want to help others and make a difference in their lives because I also needed a mentor or fairy godmother at one point in my own life.” Because of this, Rose has organized a Fantasy Guild on her Web site with the purpose of enabling beginning sculptors to contact her directly for free help or critiques so they can learn how to sculpt their own beautiful, fantasy females out of polymer clay or porcelain.

Music is also magic to Rose, and she creates an uplifting work environment listening to world music, new age, classical, Celtic and soundscapes—all happy, soft music. She does not watch the news or listen to radio. “Therefore, I'm out to lunch with the fairies most of the day. If there is a hurricane coming, and that is often in Florida, my loyal assistant, Julie, who has been my right arm and friend for 15 years, has to tell me, or I could be swept away. Julie and I call ourselves Lucy and Ethel. Of course, I’m Lucy and always getting into some new project, like pouring a sidewalk or making Julie work in the garden with me all day instead doing the business. She claims working here is never boring or the same thing daily.“

I was lucky and developed my ability and style within the first year because of my artistic background,” she admits, “but it usually takes about three years to become good at sculpting. If a person is craft-minded, they can do it. It doesn’t take a lot of money. The key elements to success are time, a supporting and understanding family, the ability to research and lots of practice. It’s never too late to invest in you; I started sculpting at age 40.”

Rose is the mother of one daughter, Anne-Marie. She has five grandchildren, four tiny Pomeranian dogs and 15 large aquariums full of dainty show guppies.

In 10 years, Rose sees herself living a simpler life. “I won’t be living in this big house or doing seminars or selling supplies. I definitely will be writing books on dolls and figurines, and I will never give up sculpting OOAK dolls and figurines.”

Rose will be traveling to teach a few sculpting seminars during the next two years and then plans to retire from teaching.

I bought a fairy doll at a second hand store a little while ago, and i believe she may be a Patricia Rose doll. On her back is the signature Rose-Crain, and the year is 1995. She's a beautiful little doll. She has strawberry red hair with a rose in it and she looks like shes dancing. Her top is white lined with white roses, and her skirt is pink tulle. I was wondering if anyone has any information on this doll regarding it's value. Thank you!

Hello, I am not experienced with dolls of any sort. I was a tom-boy growing up and I was given six dolls by my grandmother, all by Patricia Rose. For a start, I have Little Miss Valentine and Little Irish Lassie. They are in top condition, never touched. I really need the money. I thought about going to a pawn shop but do not want to be ripped off. Can anyone give me an idea of what they are worth?

Please don not sell your Patricia Rose doll to your neighbor. I have seen Patricia's doll's sell for over a hundred or more dollars on eBay. Yes, she is trying to take advantage of you. You can just type Patricia Rose on the eBay site and some of her dolls and her molds come up. You can also go to Patricia's own site by typing her name on google. Her site will come up and you can see all of the different porcelain dolls that she has made. Please do not sell your doll. Patricia's doll's are works of art. Good Luck, and be healthy

Anything Patricia Rose has made is certainly more valuable than $5.00...reproduction or not. She is very well-known and one of the best doll artists in the world. Tell your neighbor, "no way".

The signature os Rose-Crain (Patricia Rose and Sharon Crain underneath the signatures. My neighbor is begging me to sell her this doll.(Which is still in it's org box) to her for $5.00. I can't find any information on the internet on this doll. I had a stroke a few years ago and can't remember where i got the doll or how much i paid. Should i sell it to her or is it worth more then $5.00. She keeps asking me about it. I somehow feel she is trying to take advantage of me.
