Technically that would be an olive oil/ money infusion. Money oil would be squeezed directly from the money without the introduction of a vehicle to carry the fragrance. Also, use hydrolyzed soybean oil to make fragrances, not olive oil.

anyway the German slang for bibery is "schmieren", which means "greasing". This would make sense, but only in Germany.

There is a dead mouse on the rug in our living room. Our cats kill them but don't always eat them up. Usually the field mice get inside in the fall with the temp change. But they are coming in now about one grim discovery a day. Sometimes just a butt and tail left on a rug.

@Frank from VT: I'm all for less Lyme disease but the deer are everywhere. I live in the densely populated burbs of NJ and no foxes are to be found. What we really need is a national policy and study by the near completely dysfunctional CDC. I think they are afraid of the word: epidemic.

That Lyme vaccine is a complete sham. They don't have an effective vaccine. It's main claim to fame is changing your blood test so you will still be sick but no longer read positive. Read Cure Unknown (written by the editor of Discover magazine)if you want to see how twisted it has all become.

If your cat eats a mouse and it gets stuck on his/her throat, don't even think trying to get the dead mouse with your bare hand. You risk yourself of getting good ol' bubonic plague. Choose Lyme disease over bubonic plague if you can.

I'm not anti vaccine. According to almost everyone involved in treating Lyme they really don't have a vaccine for Lyme. They are pushing for a new vaccine now but given that it is only recently that the local emergency room has started treating on clinical symptoms as opposed to the test I don't think they have a fucking clue. The newest infected: The five year old brother of my son's friend. Overnight IV and 3 weeks of antibiotics. It is epidemic in my area.
