OK, I saw Andrea's post and after all , it is Friday.
I saw a recent episode of CSI-New York that had a cochineal beetle as part of the crime scene evidence about a sniper. Anyway, it got me wondering, anyone know if automatic transmission fluid is colored with cochineal (carmine) ?? (I had to make this guy related and don't know any girls working on their transmissions)

This is mostly for the girls - I dropped into the Ulta store yesterday to pick up a few things and the sales person wanted me to try this somewhat new product by Benefit. It was a lip and cheek tint - came in a little bottle - looked like mucicarmine working solution. I looked at the box that it came in and sure enough, one of the first ingredients was CARMINE! So I had to relate a few of the stories about beetles and Carmine and pirates that I learned from reading "A Perfect Red" recommended by Dick Dapson...wonder if I bored her? Maybe she won't bother me the next time I'm rushing through the store trying to get my stuff and get out of there.
