    Also, welcome to BN! I'm new-ish here as well, and am loving the place so far.

    You ever seen the redhead in the Law and Order show? Fiery long red hair, OH...MY...GOD! I believe she was also in a Sopranos ep.

    Was there some confusion re Acadians - French Lousianians and Atticus (Finch), the role Gregory Peck played in To Kill a Mockingbird?

    Mine is a pansy because I love their little faces. Gardening is a major hobby of mine, especially fragrant flowers...which is also responsible for bringing me to BN.

    Paint! Maybe the best invention since.... well, the best invention! Isaac Newton couldn't have made it, nor Darwin theorized it!

    Haha you got it ! And if I use Paint, it's certainly not 'cause I'm not able to use something more sophisticated like Photoshop...

    Ah, after a search I'm understanding your original moth!

    I had been thinking actis as in "actus reus" (I missed the 'a', and I guess I don't spell Latin so good) and "luna" as in moon or lunacy = crazy, impulsive acts. I'm starting to feel a little actus luna myself after some of these recent purchases...

    That is so, but I just like chrysanthemums.

    I think actus luna is quite appropriate. (as I have enough 'fumes to last many, many years, all acquired since, oh... December '09. SHeesH!

    On the other hand, the Luna moth is well... one gorgeous, amazing moth. I finally saw one "in person" a few years ago and it was bigger than my hand. Elusive, lovely.

    (oh, and coincidentally, one of my other handles is moonlunasea as in lunacy, but some Japanese kiddie rock band called themselves moonlunasea and I glommed onto it for myself.)

    I love mice and my Fracas..."musse" is slang for "mouse" in Swedish.
    (besides, I call my daughter Musse, have always done).

    Mine is a picture of my daughter and myself. This is the first time that I show my face. When I was at fragrantica; I didn't. At basenotes I thought, why not? I like to see a face on an avatar and I should do the same for others.

    Nice Topic.

    Mine is a crop of The Shrine by J.W. Waterhouse. I've had this print on a door in the house for about ten years and thought that it would make a great avatar for Basenotes.

    When I look at it, I wonder if she's going up into the house or down into the garden ... though, one thing is for sure. She's stopped to smell the roses.

    I like that old chestnut.

    Thumbs up Re: This seems like a great community....respect, humor and love for hobby. So what's the story behi

    My avatar is of Giancarlo Antognoni, former regista, fantasista, and captain of Fiorentina; also a World Cup winner in 1982 with Italy.





    At the peak of his powers, he fractured his skull in a collision with the opposing goalkeeper that also stopped his heart on the pitch for half a minute but he was revived and eventually recovered to play another five seasons for i Gigliati.

    Classy player and one of the club's greatest-ever servants.

    EDIT: That absolutely gorgeous home shirt is also quite possibly the best in the club's history.
