You are so funny...yes, Niagra Falls is very refreshing...with the water splashing upon your face and if you ride the queen boat, you will need to wear a raincoat!  You will see prisms through the spray and discover you have just dreamt all day!  Karen you are the pride and joy and I am so glad that you are rather cute and coy!  What else can I say, that can express it anymore than a Niagra spray!  You will have to go and see it...and go along with all the rest to be it!  There you go and it is especially written to you by only one Lo!

in my opinion, "love" is an elaborate term for no more than attraction, coupled with compatibility. it is all based around the mating instinct, finding a partner that can spawn healthy offspring, but that will stay around to support you and them. two people create dependancies on one another so great that separation is catachlysmic8)

There is a lady sweet and kind,
Was never face so pleased my mind;
I did but see her passing by,
And yet I love her till I die.

Love means a lot of things to a lot of people.  The Greeks had it a lot clearer than we did, with 'eros' - sexual love, 'philos' - virtuous love (like for friends or brothers), 'storge' - family love (like parents and children), and 'agape' - unconditional love.

Chemically, love is identified, sometimes, as vassopressin (Cys-Tyr-Phe-Gln-Asn-Cys-Pro-Arg-Gly-NH2), a protein found in mamals that dictates monogomy in social relationships and makes your kidneys hold back water out of urine.  ?

This sounds a very sensible distinction to make.

Maybe it is an indication that the Greeks took a greater interest in such things than we do, that they had more words for it.

Does this mean that the amount of water in your partners urine will be a predictor of how unfaithful they will be [}:)]

Yes, I agree with you on the greeks knowing a tadbit more as they were sensual beings, ritualistic, as well as very competitive...

George good point!

I believe it does allude to that conclusion. ;)  I heard a rumor that there was a nasal spray some scientists gave people, then had both a control group and the treated group answer questions from an attractive young person of the opposite sex.  Supposedly, the people who were sprayed with vassopressin were far more candid and trusting than the control group.

Umm yeah, it had vassopressin.  I have not seen the literature, though.
