11. Thanks for posting

It seems like dogs could be used until they isolate the compounds well enough for instrument detection.

My daughter is starting college next year in Biomedical Engineering and I am fascinated for her future.

14. I remember 2 other 'smell' stories from quite a few years ago.

Might have been 60 Minutes, Dateline or Sunday Morning (is that one still on?). Anyway, it was one of those programs that featured a variety of different stories during their time slot.

One of them was about a family whose little girl had epilepsy. Mom was a housewife and was always there during the day to help her daughter but at night their faithful dog took over and would alert the parents about 3 minutes before 'his' little girl had a seizure.

The other story was about a woman whose sense of smell was so acute that she could detect impurities in her city's water system that their sensitive testing equipment couldn't. IIRC it all started one day when she smelled algae in her tap water and brought it in to give them a heads-up.

15. My hubby has had a personality change like that, but I don't have her nose.

Maybe he's just becoming an old grouch. Or maybe Trump sent him over the edge. It all started around the time of Trump's election.

16. Interesting. I have a strong sense of smell; many times I detected gas leaks before anyone else knew
