    No food or other cravings—just joy, pure sensual joy!

    Gerard, I notice that you’re working hard too, by posting all this fun stuff. You’re giving us a great selection of stuff to seriously think about without posting gloom & doom, or pointless rants as well.
    Your efforts are noted, and appreciated. Keep it up. AD is the best site on the web, bar none.

    Ditto, ditto, ditto @jwm.

    I can almost remember the smell of a giant leaf pile, fun.

    Out here in the great Northwet, once the leaves start falling, the rains have already come. You can’t get a pile that sounds like that.

    This video is definitely going to be queued up and waiting for my kids when they come down for breakfast tomorrow.

    Yes I can smell that pile. Even more, I still smell the piles of leaves being burnt every Fall. Anybody remember that? You’d see piles maybe five times as the one in the video, in gutters and alleys all over town, beyond dry, set alight with a match and tended by a kid with a rake. It’s what football season smelled like, and Halloween.

    That fellow better be careful never to rake leaves around anything solid…
