    Morning all!

    l too was shocked & saddened to see what's happened to Notre Dame cathedral. A terrible loss.

    HoP, sorry to hear of your troubles. Sending virtual hugs & positive vibes your way.

    N.CAL, far be it from me to give out spoilers when there may be some who haven't seen it yet. But it was an amazing & enjoyable ride, with some very satisfying moments indeed! Even better than expected.

    l'm wearing Narciso on this damp, grey morning.

    Fair enough. There's a few moments that stood out to me some great and some that were creepy.

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Yes! Agree. Great first episode.

    My computer is acting wonky so I've been unable to post. Working on figuring out what's wrong.
    Anyhow, I'm enjoying Au Delà Narcisse by Bruno Fazzolari today.

    And Happy Birthday rynegne!

    Thanks, teardrop! Today is a new day. Improvise, adapt, overcome.

    I don't know how in the world the remaining stone structures can be salvaged or supported, of Notre Dame. I have not heard if the pipe organ has been destroyed although I don't know how it could have survived the heat. The magnificent stained glass? Is that gone, too?

    Hello, and Happy Birthday rynegne!

    Add me to those distraught at the damage to Notre Dame, though I'm grateful it appears there were no injuries or deaths, and that much of the artwork had been moved last week as part of the ongoing renovations.

    I'm in Xerjoff Lira today, from a sample.



    Terrific Tuesday to all!

    Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone! It's my brother's birthday too, yet...we're 8 years apart!

    Wearing Piña again today.

    I've been super busy since Thursday...my wife is on a 10 day tour of Arizona. She's out in Flagstaff today and Sedona tomorrow. I'm missing her and her help. She starts work later than me and usually takes care of the dog in the morning and I do in the evening. Not the case this week as I'm waking up really early to drop our dog off at "day care" and picking up...feeding and taking for a walk...then going to jiu-jitsu in the evening. It's making for really long days...I'm gone from 6:30am - 9pm. I'm not doing any celebrating today which is weird because I usually go out to dinner with my wife and my parents. Instead I will hopefully be receiving my first belt stripe for 20 hours of work in the gym at jiu-jitsu tonight.

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Diptyque Olene today. I’m heartbroken over the damage to Notre Dame. I hope to make a donation towards its repair. That would be deeply satisfying.

    My kitchen renovation continues. It’s now one big empty room with a concrete slab floor and missing drywall in places. But the electricians were in yesterday and now there’s light - plenty of light! I’m going out to see Shen Yun tonight with a friend. Life is good at the moment.

    Have a good day.

    Happy birthday, rynegne, and congrats on your belt stripe! Mornings can be so rough when your routine has to change--it's been a year since my husband changed his work schedule and I'm still not totally used to it!

    1000 today--a brave choice for my office--but I don't have any appointments, so what the hell.

    HoP, I was just reading that it the organ has somehow survived, the rose windows too. Miraculous. Here's a link to a news story about the pipe organ:
