    Well, the software appears to be non-functioning. I think I may shop for a different label maker. If anyone knows of a good one, let me know.

    This is a label maker I'm considering. No software required. What do you think?

    Not that you're asking me, but I think the label maker you've chosen looks very usable!

    Thanks for your input. I'm thinking this might work, too.

    Well, I saw this at Office a Max. Bad news. It's designed to work only on PCs. So I guess I'll give up on the idea.

    Those are great videos! I've seen those before. It's extraordinary how emotional dogs are. It's funny, our cats are fairly glad to see us after we've been away. You wouldn't think they would be but they really do express an interest. They rub up against us and purr. Although our stray cat that we renovated immediately marched over and whizzed on one of my (luckily) plastic shopping bags from our trip. So I guess that's what he thought about being left alone with the babysitter for 10 days!

    Lol kumquat! Cats and dogs are amazing animals, they're far more intuitive and emotional than most people think.

    Speaking of dogs ... have you seen the Subaru Dog Tested, Dog Approved commercials? I love them! There are so many of them, but this has to be one of my favorites (the mama dog looks a lot like my Cali!):

    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Default Share your resources for French Pronunciation

    When I was in high school, I took French and fell head over heels in love with the beauty of the language. Now, 20+ years later, some of it still sticks in my brain. However, I like to pronounce things correctly so I've been working on learning the correct pronunciations for the various terms found in parfumerie as well as the many French Design houses.

    I thought I might not be the only one who wanted to be certain that Toilette was NOT, in fact pronounced like toilet. So, where do you like to go to find proper pronunciation?

    I found this young lady's video helpful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6v6DrsDA48M

    This is probably better suited to the Off Topic thread so we'll move it over.

    If you have an iphone there's a button with a speaker icon on the dictionary app. You push that and get the correct pronunciation. There must be one available on a website somewhere.

    hmm, that would be handy Kumquat, but I have the S3 I had a thread about this on the Huddler site with some helpful links that Hednic shared, but I can't seem to find that now.

    I was thinking it might be a good sticky to have a pronunciation guide thread since I can't be the only one who struggles.

    There's already a suitable sticky, so it may be an idea to add the additional resources to that one in order to keep it all together?

    There used to be a France based Basenoter who had put up an excellent French pronunciation perfume guide and could hear his voice, way pre-Huddler and should still be around to access, but haven't had any luck finding it yet.

    Google translate not only identifies the language, but speaks the pronunciation of whatever you type. Sometimes it misses, but not often.

    I have luckily secured tickets through a business partner to see two matches but don't know yet which group or teams I'll be viewing.

    I've been at the hospice care facility all Monday morning until now with my fiancées aunt. She's been fighting an uphill battle with cancer for 15 years now that's finally coming to a head.
    Blood pressure and heart rate are low. She'll be leaving us any time now.

    I'd like to ask my Basenotes brothers and sister to please put her in your thoughts and prayers to any God you pray to. Ask that she leaves this earth peacefully and quickly. She hasn't breathed fresh air in 6 months.

    Also please don't forget to pray for your loved ones and your own health and safety. There's nothing more important in life.

    God bless.

    So sorry to hear such sad news - if her passing is inevitable, may it be dignified and painless. Thoughts and best wishes to you and yours.
