    It was below freezing here this morning. Clearly, November is drunk. This is FLORIDA, people. We have cold weather, though just not this early. This is the land of the warm Thanksgiving, not the...

    Lord Helpus -- you have to use the remote that came with the TV and not the DISH remote. It is a pain to have them both handy but that is what we've had to do.

    We don't do colors, though -- not unless the essential oil colors the soap itself (see the orange-ish color that the citrus oils can create)
