    What a day we had! We just got home and I'm trying to shake it off. The good news is that we are alive and well.
    My car, however-- my nice new car I've had only 6 months -- is in a body shop.

    Re: How do I delete a post?

    I think you can only delete your post (thread) on the BN Marketplace.

    Otherwise you can edit and delete the words, substituting with an ellipsis (...) or "post deleted" or whatever you wish.

    Re: Looking for fresh summer orange scent

    Orange Sanguine is fantastic, IMO. My husband loves it. He is fussy about longevity but this one has good longevity.

    He also wears L'Erbolario Orangerie, which is more economical.
