Let’s remove wires

Task: Write a letter to a company that no longer sells your favorite product on why they should offer it again.

Attention to THE general director OF

I’ve been using your bluetooth headset for a few months. I found it here . But when I decided to buy it as a gift for MY FRIEND’S BIRTHDAY, I FOUND OUT that your company no longer sells this device.
I tried to find A replacement but I wasn’t successful in it. It is THE reason why I decided to write this letter.
I believe that this product follows the trend releasing home and office devices from wires. I hope your company will resume sales of this device.
PS: It is not advertising, just English-writing practice

Close to nature

Task: To create story about picture

This person likes to be near nature. What do we need to take a bath apart from water?  
No shampoo, no perfume. There is other stuff, and in this case it is fruit. Old people know that fruit has lots of useful components inside. Even dry fruits could be used with water to enrich it with vitamins.

The next thing which demonstrated our closeness to nature is the cat. As it is well known, pets can communicate with their owners. Moreover, they can heal people. It seems that the two in this picture are happy being together. It could be dangerous to make eye contact with animals because they could perceive it as a threat. But this advice doesn’t work in this photo. They look like friends.

In choosing a title for this picture, I could name it Water/Fruit/Animal Therapy. Is it correct in English? Maybe not, but close to matters of nature.
