Re: Vetiver

Yeah, I'm not sure what I've done wrong here except object to Gary's passive-aggressive, petty jibes. Nevertheless, I'll refrain from responding to his nonsense further. Anyone who reads the posts can see him for what he is.

Re: Vetiver

I've used Tim's vetiver the past two days and it's right up there with the best. Tim knows his fragrances, that's for sure. Odd things happen - it seems that this soap rotted in the pot. Must've been some conflict among ingredients or something. Nauseating - sickening to say the least. Too bad it h...

Re: What are you reading?

Reading Who Ate the First Oyster? for some light fun pop history.

Reading Zora Neale Hurston's short stories in search of some to use with my students.
