My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Saleratus is leavening for bread making, or starter as for sour dough bread.

Salacious means to behave in a leering, suggestive manner, I believe.

Funnies:

Saleratus - an apparatus made by Sal.

Salacious - A whopper of a sale; a cross between "sale" and "h*llacious".

I think salacious is bordering on the obscene.

Saleratus--no clue.

I know these. Salertus was a member of the Roman senate during the time of Caligula. Salertus kept his head when so many others lost theirs by being one of Caligula's best drinking buddies.

Salacious is what Caligula thought his drinking buddy Salertus was. We don't have to go any further than that on this one.

What do I win?

And so I have!

Saleratus - When naval crew get so hungry that even mess food sounds delicious on board. Pronounced sailor-ate-us.

Salacious is how the food really tastes to them. It's not quite delicious, after all. It's the sailor's palate's compromise. Tabasco sauce helps in making said food salacious.

Saleratus- A genus of rats, usually female, known to infest and invade various Sale's.

Salacious- Confuscious's unheard of, no account brother.
