[bksvol-discuss] Re: Marking Potter Time

Beware the person with a keen sense of smell, whether
it's scent or the smell of burning non-scented
candles. smile

OF course, scented candles smell even when not lit--I
can attest to that. You can put some near air vents or
near the door and hope the scent wafts into the halls
or other rooms and trick possible trouble-makers into
complaining when there's nothing to complain about.
grin

BTW, what does it say about incense? There are a lot
of nice scented incense sticks. Oddly, though I didn't
care for the scented candles, I did like the incense
my other  daughter burned.
