To make things even more complicated, there is a curry plant that is sold at nurseries that smells like curry but has a bitter taste. Then, there is a curry leaf plant or tree (Murraya koenigii) that smells like curry and has an herbal taste. It is sometimes added to Indian dishes in addition to all the other curry ingredients.

Sounds delicious! I didn't realize curry (as in the substance in the spice aisle, not the name for an Indian dish) wasn't just its own thing, like parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.

Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Yes, thanks for that tip. I was doing that this morning, out early in the frosty air, bundling up slash. Very enervating! Fortunately, I can take deep breaths now that the wildfires are more under control. But the snow didn't entirely put them out yet.  :-\

If you like watching videos on YouTube,  they have a selection of videos that you can watch, soothing sounds and situations you can imagine yourself in.

This one, for example, is a 3 hour long video, a simulation where you can imagine yourself in a city restaurant during a rainy evening, while soft jazz music plays.

Hmm. Interesting idea, but I'm not sure this is the scenario I'd pick. Sitting in a restaurant overhearing slightly annoying fragments of other people's conversations, can't eat any of the restaurant's food, can't leave because it's raining too hard, so you spend three hours hanging around doing nothing.

A friend has a TV with a screen the size of a single bed sheet -- that would help put you into the scene even more. Within 10 years people will be doing it with virtual reality, the way they do now by looking through goggles.

There are lots of scenarios out there.

This one has a scary title, but it can be relaxing.  Haunted Halloween Mansion Fireplace with Thunder, Rain and Howling Wind

Nothing scary happens, I'm assuming they gave it 'haunted mansion" in the title as it's a darkened room in a house.  You hear the crackling fire, howling wind, rain, and occasional thunder.  This one is six hours long.
