Red's Lumberyard

Redneck Perfumisto, a.k.a. Red or RP, is a certified woodaholic who was born in Kansas and never quite left. The Lumberyard, located in a small town with one stoplight and memories of a train station, brings together a group of strange characters who share Red's passion for all things fragrant. Sharing as well the internet connection in the lumberyard laboratory, you never know who's going to post something. At least, that's Red's excuse whenever law enforcement stops by for coffee and explanations.

    In this thread, where new moderator CuddleCat was announced, as well as my own retirement from moderation, N. CAL gave me an excuse to abuse the haiku format in ONE MORE TIME - so heck - like I'm going to pass THAT one up!

    As I sit here, next to our Christmas tree, reveling in the smell of my Christmas gift - Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Profumo - I have some very pleasant thoughts.

    We were discussing, on this thread, the pricing of niche fragrances - Andy Tauer versus Dusita. Dorje123 opined that it was tough to enter the market now as a new, affordable Henry Ford, and I agree. But it got me thinking. A bit off ...

    I used to say this about Kansas...

    It's a nice place to live, but I wouldn't want to visit there.

    I'm kinda feeling the same way about the new/old site. It seems a little bare-bones at first, but I think I'm going to get used to it.

    Yes, it's a bit primitive. Yes, it's a bit old fashioned. Yes, it's a bit like a trip back to an earlier time.

    But it's classic. REALLY classic.

    And it has ...

  5. IFRA's Bad Luck

    .
    Well, if IFRA would have been lucky, you would now be reading one of my most well-argued pieces ever written, in defense of their latest video.

    Unfortunately, the crashing server ate it.

    100% lost in cyberspace. I kid you not.

    Is the universe trying to tell me something? Who knows.....

    However, I intend to rally to the cause one more time. Come back later - for a link to a re-created version!
