The smell of kerosene triggers fond memories of picking Japanese beetles off 
of my grandfathers roses, dropping them into a paint can (yellow label, 
Cabots Redwood Stain) with a little kerosene on the bottom. Maybe I was 6 or 
As an aside, raccoons were very common here until afflicted with a virus 
(parvo or maybe distemper) perhaps 7-8 years ago.  Although less numerous 
now, they still come around to hunt for crayfish down by the river.  Wild 
turkey populations have benefited due to less egg predation from the coons.
Romulea amoena opened the other day, wonderful.
