The fastest growing nail is on the middle finger. And the nail on the middle finger of your dominant hand will grow the fastest of all.

Well, now that you mention it, it IS funny that one very short non-fact could spur such a lenghthy conversation.........about farts.

One of my Saint Bernards used to fart when she sat on the kitchen floor waiting for me to feed her...you could definitely hear those farts!

I also smell smoke, cigarettes, and food cooking (if these are part of the scene). I don't wake up when I smell these things in my dreams, but in the morning, I remember smelling them--especially the bananas. I wonder if there is a dream study for which I could volunteer that is looking at whether people can smell in their dreams...when I dream of my grandmother, who died 40 years ago, I smell Chanel #5.
