Exploding 'pot pop' removed from three marijuana shops | Local & Regional | Seattle News, Weather, Sports, Breaking News | KOMO News
"When Top Shelf Cannabis in Bellingham took delivery of 330 bottles of a brand new marijuana infused soda on September 28, they were excited to promote it to their customers. They sold ten bottles of legal sparkling pomegranate soda made by Mirth Provisions of Longview on the first day. But when employees opened up shop the following day, they found a sticky mess of broken bottles and shards of glass throughout the store. During the night, the bottles began to self destruct. The employees didn't think anything was dangerous until they heard and saw bottles randomly explode. "It sounded like a shotgun going off," said Top Shelf Cannabis manager Zach Henifin. "You can actually feel it, it was that explosive". Wearing a face shield and protective garb, Henifin placed cartons of unexploded soda in a steel box the size of a small dumpster outside of the store. The staff used bleach to clean up the mess and pulled pieces of glass from cardboard boxes. The "pot pop" continued to explode... more... - Jessie from Bookmarklet
""It was simply the fact that his batch had a higher yeast concentration, and one of the by-products of yeast is excess carbon dioxide," said Stites. He says his company pressured test the carbonated drink to be 14 PSI -- or pounds per square inch. He says bottles were designed to handle 42 PSI. "The yeast was just building up the pressure in the bottles over a seven to 10 day period," said Stites. " - Jessie

DB, Lil LB's Dad
We got word today that the baby we were going to adopt (before the fiasco with the birth mother) was born prematurely and didn't live. Even though we never met her and due to recent events would not have ended up adopting her Kesha and I are both saddened by this news. I guess we had grown more attached to her than we thought.
I can't help but feel that she didn't really have a chance. The reckless, irresponsible behavior of the woman that was carrying her and the abusive treatment she received from her boyfriend took care of that. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
That is so sad to hear. *hugs* - Anne Bouey
I'm so sorry. - Steve C Team Marina
That is heartbreaking. Even with all the mother's issues and your family's decision, it's still very sad news. - Corinne L
That's incredibly sad. I'm so sorry, DB. - vicster: full-bodied
sorry to hear, DB. - MoTO: Team Marina
I'm so sorry for all of y'all. :( - LB put a spell on you.

Had my annual performance review today.
The good news is I'm not fired. As a matter of fact, they love me. So I can stick around at the job for a little while longer. - Steven Perez from Android
The bad news is they gave me more work. Wait, that's not so bad. Also, more vacation time. And something about a bonus. - Steven Perez from Android
Congrats! - Me

Rather unexpectedly got offered a job today, now I just have to hope that the physical therapy works well enough that I will be able to do the job without screwing over the whole kitchen. I'm going to be in charge of desserts for a new restaurant! Working with my favorite co-worker ever!
I'm excited to somewhat have my own "kingdom" creatively speaking. I didn't even apply for this job, just went to meet the executive chef (my former co-worker, close friend, and on-again-off-again (currently on) roommate is the sous chef & had recommended me as pastry chef). He was like, "yeah, we'll work around that [injuries], it's about the right fit... based on this conversation, I want you for the job, just gotta check on salary with the owners." - Lo
I was "..... what?" I didn't even get to wear my interview suit! WHAAAAAAAAAAA. I'm afraid of not being able to pull my weight, but I know the universe playing a trump card when I see it. It's usually smarter than me, so we'll follow this rabbit hole and see where it takes us, eh? - Lo
Sometimes that's all you can do ^ - Steve C Team Marina
Thanks, I need to be reminded :) - Lo
Opening slated for November 7. It's been pushed back a few times, which was lucky for me! - Lo
The executive chef has a science background, too (geology). And he thinks the job has to be fun, and stay fun. The owners aren't sinking everything into this, so there is less pressure to perform financially. They really wanted women in the kitchen, at least one, which worked in my favor. Their menu is focused on local but the main emphasis is deliciousness (you'd be surprised how often that's NOT the key issue in food prep). Overall a super awesome environment. The only downside is early mornings - Lo
There, I think that's all the good stuff. Gotta love how no matter how long I go without posting here, it's my FIRST STOP with news. I didn't even tell my family yet lol - Lo
Congrats, Lo! We'd love to see pics of your creations. :) - Anne Bouey
Great news! - Janet from FFHound!
Very cool, Lo. Very cool! - Bette Cooper

Update for those who follow us here. We are done with chemo. My wife wanted to try a 5th chemo, but she is unable to handle it. the latest MRI is bad. Family has been visiting this week. They have seen a decline in the 5 day they were here. She probably has 3 months. My focus is on her quality of life. More family will be visiting.
I am actually in a good place, it was tougher when she lost her communication a few months ago. I have shifted into the caregiver mode. - Mike Nencetti
Oh, I'm sorry to hear that Mike. I'm glad that you and Beverly are surrounded by family at this time. - Anika
We have had a good run Anika. Many people with her cancer only last a few months. We have had many good memories in the last 15 months. - Mike Nencetti

I think things have settled down. There should not be a lot of drama. My wife has slept all day. The steroids are not helping give her energy. Hope the bed arrives today. It was exhausting but I got her showered and changed on my own this am. Glad to know I'll have help. Thanks everyone for listening. - Mike Nencetti from iPhone

I signed up to scrapbook ALL DAY TODAY from 9-midnight at a nearby scrapbook store. It's now 9:25 and I'm so tired I haven't left the house yet. I wonder if there's a napping area at the store... yawn.
I need to get dressed, choose my stuff to bring, load up the car... I'm so tired just thinking about it. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

Tiny Napa cat stands tall in new Guinness record book
"How can something small stand tall? By being the shortest of its kind on the planet – like Lilieput, a Napa house cat who now has a place in the Guinness World Records book. Standing but 5.25 inches (13.34 centimeters) from the floor to her shoulders, the 10-year-old black-and-mocha Munchkin, who is owned by Christel Young, is listed as the world’s shortest domestic feline in the Guinness book’s latest edition, published Sept. 9. Young first contacted editorial staff for the annual reference book of superlatives last year, believing Lilieput to be closer to the ground than Fizz Girl, whom the publication had measured at just under 6 inches (15 cm) in 2011. After a Napa veterinarian measured Lilieput in July 2013, Young shared her pet’s story with the Napa Valley Register, though Guinness publishers did not allow her to officially confirm the record until the book’s publication last month. Lilieput’s place in a bestselling book alongside the tallest buildings, fastest eaters and all... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
Tortie! - Pete : Team Marina
"Strangers who once may have thought the half-pint cat a misfit now give her a friendly welcome, Young said – possibly with an assist from videos of Lilieput her owner has posted to YouTube since gaining Guinness World Records’ seal of approval. “I’m getting more astonishment from people like, ‘Oh, look how cute!’ or ‘She’s adorable!’ I’m getting a lot nicer comments about her,” said... more... - Anne Bouey

Norway ranked best country for elders; U.S. makes No. 8 - SFGate - http://www.sfgate.com/default...
"No country takes better care of its seniors than Norway, where those over 60 enjoy social security bankrolled by the nation’s oil wealth and are well represented in politics and the workplace, a global study on aging reported this week. By contrast, the 2014 Global AgeWatch Index found, the worst place in the world to grow old is Afghanistan, where per capita GDP is a mere $1,100 and life expectancy only 50 years. Better north of equator The annual rankings based on income security, health care access, social benefits and community involvement reflected the generally greater affluence of Northern Hemisphere countries over those below the equator, with nine of the 10 best places for the elderly found in Northern Europe, North America and Japan. The geographic outlier was New Zealand, which ranked No. 10. The study by HelpAge International in London, a global coalition of organizations committed to improving living standards for the world’s rapidly expanding over-60 population,... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
"Japan is experiencing the most dramatic rise in the number of elderly, with nearly 33 percent of the population over 60 now and an expected expansion by 2050 to a staggering 42.7 percent. That is largely the result of the country having the longest expected life spans on the planet, which other studies attribute to the lean and fish-intensive national diet. Life expectancy at age 60 is... more... - Anne Bouey

Looks like we're going to have to walk away from this new adoption situation. I was very angry earlier but now I'm just sad. The dishonesty of some people in this world is sickening and disgusting especially when the life of a child is at stake. I pray that the child is born healthy and somehow someway ends up in a good home. It just won't be ours.
I'm sorry things took a bad turn. I hope that you guys can get Lincoln a little sibling soon. - Anika
I'm so sorry. - Jennifer Dittrich
It's alright. I was already a bit uncomfortable with the speed at which we were having to rush to get things squared away to make this happen. Now that the birth mother has revealed her true colors it makes the decision to walk away a bit easier. I hate shady people. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I hope your next adoption experience is better. - John (bird whisperer)
If nothing else this has forced us to get off our butts and get our stuff in order so that we're good to go when we're truly ready to start the next adoption. Our new home study will be complete by the end of this month. That will be a major hurdle jumped. And much faster than it took the last time. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Hang in there, DB. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I'm sorry that it took such an awful turn but am glad that you were able to extricate your family from the situation. I hope that your next birth family is a lot more honest with you. - vicster: full-bodied

Searches in forums turn up many many postings by people who own properties in East and West Oakland bitching about section 8 and talking about "section 8 people" like we are the scum of the earth and less than human.
I think there should be a new law for humans. If you're going to make a statement like that, you should be forced to walk in their shoes! - Mo Kargas
One of the potential jurors was like that. I wanted to punch him in the face. - Anika
That's awful. :( - Jenny H. from Android

been there and fought hard. Once when I was working in a restaurant peeps were bitching about sect 8 and such and how can they do that etc and I turned around and said I am one of "those" and never heard a word about it again. - Valz 4 TEAMMARINA
Most of the feedback I've gotten outside of here & Facebook is along the lines of "get a job stop wasting my tax money" because of course the assholes don't even understand how section 8 works or what it is. (this part is about jerks in general, not the landlord jerks) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I unfriended my aunt on Facebook because she was spewing ignorant hate speech about people who need government assistance and why hard working tax payers shouldn't have to support them. I wanted to tell her that my dad was on government assistance when he died, but I bit my tongue. I don't have room for that vitriol in my life. - Jenny H. from Android
Empathy is lacking because nobody (that's an asshat) realizes just how close we all are to economic collapse - one bad hospital stay for instance any unexpected thing can put us over the edge... Be well you are in my thoughts - WarLord
If I feel like engaging, which isn't often, I like to ask people what they were doing in 1983, 1993, or 2003? Because I was working 40+ hours a week for decades, paying sometimes pretty high taxes and paying into medicare & social security. Anyone who complains about me & their tax money can kiss my substantial ass. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Yeah, the calloused attitudes towards those who suffer hardship get on my very last nerve! Don't people realise THEY could be without a job due to circumstances beyond their control?. Don't people realise that the economy isn't exactly robust right now, and hasn't been for a good few years? Don't people realise that there are those who have no immediate or maybe even extended family... more... - JB
