    Somehow yesterday slipped right by and I never put on any perfume. Our humane society has been on dog quarantine for a week, two California transfer dogs tested positive for canine influenza. There...

    Quarry, you are a heck of a gardener. I am marveling at the difference you've made on your grounds. I wish I had your vision (and energy!). And thank you, and Shycat, ExtremeK, Perfumed Lady and...

    Quarry, you have given me an idea what to do with all my raspberries. I don't have the space or equipment to make wine, so I'll make cordial. Thanks!

    ExtremeK, I don't have any experience with...

    Kewart, beautiful photos, thank you.

    Trilby Lark, I traded in my Acura for a Fit five years ago, and it has carried several Ikea purchases! I can fit skis in if I lay the backseat flat.

    Got tired of the Micallef fruit so now I've sprayed AdP Colonia Pura. A big slug of orange and some cardamom, and clearly a cologne concentration, but I like Orange Sanguine or Azemour better for...

    Trilby Lark, I'm so happy for you! And laughing about the Honda Fit being the "big car" in the family now.

    Jon, I hope you enjoy your week off!

    Kewart, your vacation sounds wonderful and so do...

    Peach cobbler for breakfast this morning and I'm wearing HdP 1804 George Sand. Probably should have made pineapple cobbler for this perfume.

    Re: Olfactory Abilities and Psychopathy

    That's what the general public probably thinks, but psychologists and psychiatrists don't use the terms "sociopath" or "sociopathy" at all. A "milder shade" of some of the elements that contribute to...

    Re: Olfactory Abilities and Psychopathy

    Actually, psychopathy is defined rather well. Sociopathy is the poorly-defined, not used in psychiatry or psychology term. There is about 45 years of research on psychopathy done by Dr. Robert Hare,...

    Re: Olfactory Abilities and Psychopathy

    There may or may not be a correlation between olfactory keeness and psychopathy but this study doesn't prove anything. A self-selected group of psychopaths? Really?
    This is junk science.

    Trilby Lark, that car is gorgeous. Does it come as a convertible?

    Yes, it's the TF sample. It started out "pow!" but has quieted down considerably. It's odd because on my left wrist, it's quite sweet and very tame, while on the right it's leathery, kind of incensy,...
