Great Soap and Candle Gatherings All Over!

May and June are great months for soap and candle conferences!

In addition to the Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetic Guild’s conference, the Tennessee Soap and Candle gathering is also in May. It’s an annual gathering of soapmakers and candlemakers from Tennessee and the Southeast region, and this year’s lineup features some of the best and brightest teachers and soap/candle making personalities in the country including Amanda Griffin, Benjamin Aaron, Kayla Fioravanti, Donna Maria Coles Johnson, Marla Bosworth and more.

June 13-14 is the Lone Star Soap & Toiletries Seminar,  deep in the heart of Texas and will feature the wonderful Elin Criswell, ​Stacy Durham, Theresa Mendez, Pat Potter, and Kathy White. Also in June is the Alabama Soap & Candle Association’s gathering featuring Lela Barker, Kenna Cote, and several other great speakers. I’ve been to both the Texas and Alabama gatherings and they are truly wonderful!

A “gathering” is a truly marvelous place to share ideas, share tips, visit vendors and see in-person demonstrations. If you have not been to one you are really missing out! If there’s not one in your area…create one. It just takes a few (two or more?) soap makers in a kitchen or recreation center to make a gathering. It just take a gathering to make a basket full of great soap and candle making memories!

Apple ditched Google Maps over turn-by-turn navigation spat

By now everyone knows about the glaring flaws in Apple’s (AAPL) homemade maps application. The question, then, is why did Apple decide to launch its own maps app when it still had access to Google (GOOG) Maps for at least another year? Unnamed sources have told AllThingsD that Apple was royally ticked off that Google was holding back on implementing turn-by-turn navigation in the iOS version of …

Open Question: Does leaving your mess inside your underwear over night cause your thing to develop a fishy odor?

I take good showers and make sure to soap up the area, but notice that a fishy smell stays there.
And no, it’s not STD or any infection.

Just wondering if going to sleep without washing it after drying the semen off it will cause the mild odor?
