    Just in case there are some who avoid herbs and spices, can we broaden the theme a bit?

    Used as a noun, the most direct use of “spice” is in reference to an aromatic or pungent vegetable derived substance that is used to flavor food. The word can also be used indirectly in reference to something that adds interest or excitement. When used as a verb, spice refers to the act of adding interest or excitement.

  4. In the late 50's and early 60's many schools and churches held Friday night dances called Record Hops. The girls would sit on one side of the room
    while the boys sat on the other working up the courage to ask the girls to dance. I distinctly remember the boy's side strongly smelling of these
    products:

    Creative idea for the theme Bob! Now the big question... which frosting with the spice cake?

    That made me laugh. I was a Brut person myself, but it stunk just as much. :)

    As an SF fan, I couldn't let the mention of Spice go by without a reference to Frank Herbert's Dune :D

    My goodness, you really are a SF fan -- I forgot all about that book. I literally stayed up all night to finish the book roughly 50 years ago.:eek:

  18. Nice. Where did you find it blooming this time of year? I haven't had it bloom up here even in summer :(.

  19. I have two bushes in my front yard and they are both blooming. Just a couple of weeks ago they were covered with bees.
