Shannon - GlassMistress
Somehow elder cat one managed to step in a puddle in the litter box and create a 'boot' of cat litter. Which dried overnight I've cut off what I can but it is still packed between the pads and under the nails in pea sized 'rocks'. I tried soaking it but it remains the consistency of tar. Any suggestions?
Here's what I learned, should you ever find yourself in the same boat. NO water ... makes it worse. If you can, let it dry. Needle nose pliers do a good job of breaking it up once its dry if its rock hard like this was. There will probably have to be some scissor work. Above all, do it a little at a time, give kitty a rest when his/her patience runs out. I had to pull a lot of hair, wasn't much fun for either of us. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Option B is a bath and a scrub brush. - Colette
Water made it the consistency of tar .. this was super clumping little I guess. Cat litter concrete - Shannon - GlassMistress
Is it far enough in the past for me to laugh a little yet? - Steve C, Team Marina
Sure Steve, I got most of it out tonight. No vet visit which is what the litter company suggested. Laugh away! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Ah. I use wheat based kitty litter, so it's flushable, so litter won't really...clump like that. - Colette

I don't understand how folks can eat crunchy peanut butter. Kesha bought crunchy Peter Pan by mistake recently. I'm eating it because I don't want it to go to waste but I'm not a crunchy fan at all. It's supposed to be peanut BUTTER. Smooth creamy. Yummy. Crunchy? Bleh. The nuts get caught in my teeth. Ruins the PBJ enjoyment.
I love PBJ if you can't tell. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I'm the opposite. I have strong words for creamy peanut butter. It should be crunchy & the nuts perfectly roasted. - Anika
I like both, but I like creamy a little more. - John (bird whisperer)
i love all peanut butter equally. - holly #ravingfangirl
I prefer creamy, but like both pretty well. - Jennifer Dittrich
Creamy. Very occasionally will I accept crunchy PB (it works well in fudge, for example) but not often enough to actually pay money for it. - ellbeecee
"I don't turn down nothin' but my collar" - KB #kbism #cosign - MoTO Boychick Devil
I can't stand crunchy peanut butter. - vicster.
Use the crunchy to make PB cookies. They can take a bit of crunch. Then it isn't wasted. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I like them equally on bread, but for making peanut sauce for noodles, crunchy is definitely the way to go. - Andrew C (✔)
Andrew that's funny. I will only eat crunchy. Unless I'm making peanut sauce, then I get smooth! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
I don't eat it at all, but my wife does--crunchy, that is. - walt crawford
I usually eat the Costco natural peanut butter. I'm not sure if there's a crunchy version of that. - Rodfather
Oddly enough as much as I love peanut butter I can't stand peanut butter cookies. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Crunchy. - Kristin
Adams no-stir, all natural. Creamy. Always creamy. - Bren from iPhone
Crunchy for me. Creamy is too sticky for my tastes. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I can eat crunchy, but my favorite is natural peanut butter that is smooth with a bit of grit to it. - Jenny H. from Android
Crunchy peanut butter is uncalled for. It makes me angry. The only time I find it acceptable is if I'm baking peanut butter cookies. - Hookuh Tinypants
crunchy peanut butter is a job half done, :( - chaz2b
I will eat crunchy PB if that is what's available and the alternative is dry toast. Otherwise, creamy PB all the way. - Corinne L
Can we just agree that no matter if you like creamy or crunchy PB, it's always better when it gets all melty on toast?! - Kristin
Bagel. You meant bagel, right? - Bren from iPhone
Oh snap! I do believe this is the first time I've ever seen the Crunchy vs. Creamy debate on ff. How is that so? lol. I'll accept both, but when it's game time, I'm definitely playing for the PB Cream Dream Team. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Bren - MELTY PEANUT BUTTER ON ANY CARBY DELICIOUSNESS (#teambagel) Anna - Tsk tsk tsk. - Kristin
crunchy peanut butter 43V4H! - Big Joe Silenced
^because it gets stuck in your teeth. 43V4H. - Bren from iPhone
crunchy = FLAVOUR! and it only gets stuck in your teeth if your teeth are full of holes. :P - Big Joe Silenced
crunchy isn't a flavor crunchy is a texture and 99% of the time texture in food is a bad thing you know like gristle and avocado (*ducks on that one*) - Steve C, Team Marina
I think I'm with Bee Dub and KB. Either is fine with me. Mr. B likes creamy, though. - LB needs a break. from Android
We had this debate a couple of years ago. I came across it in my feed yesterday. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Ahh, I just saw it. Also, *fist bump* on PB love that has no room for PB cookies. Those might be the only cookies I can ALWAYS resist. #noproblem - AHnix (Anna Haro)

I need to think of a business name for my new media conglomerate. I'm thinking maybe just Wade Media. This will encompass Wade's youtube business, Jeff's music, and any blogs I may start and try to monetize in my free time, ha-ha. Or maybe "Wade ME" (ME = music and entertainment).
WadeArts - Rodfather
nice. more crowdsourcing, please! - Laura Norvig
Wading Pool - Todd Hoff
Another idea might be Wade Alison _____[something]. Wade is Jeff's middle name and Alison is my middle name. - Laura Norvig
The Wade Foundation or Wade Enterprises. - That's So CAJ! from Android
Wade says, "Wade Laura Jeffy Project" or "Wade Laura Daddy Project" or "Wade Mommy Daddy Project" - Laura Norvig
New Wade Media, Wade Deep Arts - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I always liked the guild name 'The Pretend Heroes' - Rodfather
ooh, I like New Wade, WoH! - Laura Norvig
Wades World, Wades World, Excellent.... (guitar riff) - Steve C, Team Marina
Another from Wade: "The Family Project" - Laura Norvig
Maybe Wade's World Media. - Laura Norvig from iPod
I was going to say what SteVe said!! (earworm) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Maybe Wade's World Enterprises. "Media" doesn't encompass live music very well. - Laura Norvig
W00t! Had our best single day revenue yet on June 25th. - Laura Norvig

Do you drive with your hands at the 10 and 2 positions?
I usually don't except when I'm driving over some really rough road at speed. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Sometimes. Lindsay says I look like I'm a zombie when I do that though... or Frankenstein. - iTad
Yes, split evenly with 4 and 7. or Noon and chillin'. - Anika
I do and get made fun of, too. - Trish R
10 and 2 makes my arms tired if done for any sustained amount of time. I'm a lazy driver. I usually keep my arms in my lap and steer from the bottom of the wheel. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Most of the time I drive with one hand. - Rodfather
I find myself driving with one hand on the wheel and one of the stick shifter a lot. I even do it when I drive my wife's automatic. Just habit I guess. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
No...3 and 9, just like Emerson Fitipaldi...Almost no professional drivers use 10 and 2 so why is it recommended for regular drivers? - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I've heard 3 and 9 is better for today's vehicles because they handle so differently from cars when 10 and 2 was first used. - Kenton
The last time I drove, it was probably 5 and 7. - Andrew C (✔)
I got the 10 in there, even though that hand is probably supposed to be on 2. - Rahsheen
Yeah, I would say 9 and 3 for me also, most of the time. My hands just naturally fall there. But I do use both hands most of the time, unless I'm stuck in traffic. Actually, more like 9:30 and 2:30. - Laura Norvig
Nope. When driving with two hands (taking a corner fast or overtaking someone at speed, or some other action or situation that looks like I need more control), I usually drive at 9 and 3 (I heard somewhere that that's actually more effective positioning -- EDIT: oh, this was mentioned above). However, usually, I'm driving with just my left hand at 9, because my left arm can rest on the door of my car. - Chieze Okoye
one hand when i drive I think when i took the driving test i did not even used 10 & 2 hand rule. At one point in the test i drove one handed. - Patrick aka Damexican from YouFeed
Was your driving instructor asleep or something? - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I drive with one hand at 12:00 if I'm texting. - Ha3rvey (on hiatus)
Haha. I have one pinky at 8 o'clock if I'm smoking, eating, and texting at the same time. Seriously though, if I really want to focus on driving well, my hands are usually somewhere between 10 & 2 and 9 & 3. - Rodfather
depends what i'm eating at the time. and never when i'm texting or typing on my laptop. and also never when doing origami. - Morgan
i almost never drive with my hands at 10 and 2 but its because i drive a manual transmission car. - Cardeen Risen
Sometimes, but they creep down to 5 and 7 eventually over a long drive. - Alix May
not all the time - VALZONE#SCREWED
mostly one hand, or noon & chillin (love that one Anika!), but also around 1:30 & 9:30 ;) - Starmama
I'm working on the 4 & 8 positions, thumbs resting on the wheel. I'd just read a piece from AAA about this last week, and I find that it is MUCH less fatiguing on my neck, shoulders, and upper back. So I'm trying to make this a habit. It really does give MUCH more control around curves and turns - I was amazed by this. - Ordinarybug Heather
Left hand at 9, right hand on mp3 player. - Steven Perez
I think I drive all the above mentioned positions plus few more. - ۳۰ مرغ Loves Y'ALLLLL
I drive with my left hand on my knee, thumb out to add a little friction on the wheel, all of the steering control is done with my right hand around 3-5. Also what Glen said, they recommended 8 and 4 to me. My advise keep your hands towards the bottom of the wheel and position your seat as far back as possible, that still allows you to operate the vehicle unhindered, because airbags... more... - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
nope - Marissa
One knee at the 8 o'clock position... - Morton Fox
3 and 9. The right way. - Mark Davidson
6 or 12 if I'm feeling gangsta - Shey
I don't think I've ever seen anyone drive like that. - Kol Tregaskes
*Bump* - DB, Lil LB's Dad

Indiana Governor Pence to sign bill allowing businesses to reject gay customers -
"Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed into law on Thursday a measure that allows businesses to turn away gay and lesbian customers in the name of "religious freedom." The bill has sparked an uproar among gamers and church groups that hold their conventions in Indianapolis and businesses that are threatening to pull out of the city." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet

This is disgusting. - Soup in a TARDIS
I had a much longer comment but realized that it boiled down to "I don't understand and probably never will." - That's So CAJ!
Thing that blows my mind about this? Is that it wasn't Oklahoma. We've got our share of bigots in the state legislature, but they haven't managed to get anywhere with their version of this bill. - Kirsten
There is already precedent that businesses can't/shouldn't reject customers because of sexual orientation, so this stupid bill WILL get overturned. - Joe
How is this consitutionally legal? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
It isn't. In CO, I think both a wedding cake maker and a wedding photographer have tried to deny service (different cases) and the gay couples won their cases. I need to look them up for more deets. - Joe
Many of us here aren't happy. Unfortunately, the state has been gerrymandered in ways that makes voting the asses out very difficult. - Katy S

Peanut Butter: Creamy or Chunky? Peter Pan, Skippy, Jif or Other?
Natural creamy salted - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Yes - Beau Liening
creamy - Adams no stir, no sugar added - Bren
Creamy, Peter Pan. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
What Alex said. I like the generic Whole Foods 365 brand. - Derrick
Chunky, Jif. - Anne Bouey
any of the above - Marissa
Creamy, unsure of brands - Steve C, Team Marina
Yes. With celery. - Michael W. May
Creamy, any name brand (I stay away from store brands of peanut butter). - John E. Bredehoft
Me too John. Store brands are just so bland. So is Gubment Peanut Butter. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Chunky. I like Maranatha best, but tend to opt for Smucker's Natural since it's half the price. - Alix May
I just luvs Peanut Butter. Grew up on the really off off brand stuff, so I ain't really choosy about brands either. Just give me sum ground up peanuts. - Brent - Yes I am
Extra crunchy Jiff - Shannon - GlassMistress
Me too Brent. My god father got me hooked on it when I was real little. My god mother used to buy the big tubs of peanut butter from Safeway. That was a long time ago. I've been a PBJ addict ever since. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Walmart or Safeway brand. creamy for sammiches, crunchy for recipes. - Starmama
What recipes do you make with PB starmama? - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Chunky, Jif but not picky - Shey
I love PB but extremely dislike PB cookies. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
cookies, brownies, Thai-type sauces - Starmama
Reese's Chunky, please. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Adams' Natural, creamy. - Rochelle
Any sort of natural, with salt and preferably little else. - Jennifer Dittrich
Smuckers Natral Chunky. YUM! [Jif extra crunchy will work in a pinch, though] - Ordinarybug Heather
Anybody like the Peanut Butter/Jelly combo in a can (or squeeze bottle nowadays)? - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I tried to make mafe once but it came out horrible & went in the garbage. - Starmama
Chunky, and usually Jif. - Eric - Final Countdown
*Bump* Same conversation. 5 years ago. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
My answer would have been the same 5 years ago. Skippy natural for me. - John (bird whisperer)
Mine hasn't changed either. Don't know that it ever will. - DB, Lil LB's Dad

Jerry Jones on Greg Hardy: He's paid a 'terrific price'
"However, by virtue of being placed on the Commissioner’s Exempt List last season, Hardy received a $13.1 million salary while not actually playing football. Hardy’s one-year deal with the Cowboys is not guaranteed. If something else comes up off the field, Dallas can get out from under the deal without paying him. On the other hand, Hardy can earn $11.3 million if he stays out of trouble and produces on the field. I am not sure how that’s considered “paying a terrific price.”" - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Why is Bill 'Robocop' Melendez still a police officer? -
Why is Bill 'Robocop' Melendez still a police officer?
"Once the world learned the identity of the officer who nearly killed Floyd, framed him for cocaine possession, and told lie after lie on the police report, it all made perfect sense. Bill Melendez is notorious in Detroit. In 2003, after a year-long joint investigation between the FBI and Detroit Police Department, Bill Melendez was indicted for corruption, falsifying police reports, and planting drugs/guns on suspects who had been illegally arrested. In the indictment, Melendez, nicknamed "Robocop" for his bodybuilding and excessive use of force, wasn't listed as a bit player, but as the ringleader and driving force behind the corruption. Putting their own lives at risk, scores of witnesses, including several African-American police officers testified against Melendez, but the case crumbled with jury nullification." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"Twelve years ago, long before he nearly killed Floyd Dent, Officer Melendez had already cost the city millions of dollars in settlements and wracked up more brutality complaints than any other officer in all of Detroit. In 1996, Melendez shot and killed Lou Adkins, an unarmed man, who witnesses said was on the ground and posed no harm when Melendez shot him, execution style, 11 times.... more... - Andrew C (✔)

Major League Soccer awards expansion team to Minnesota that will begin play in 2018 |
"Major League Soccer announced on Wednesday that Minnesota has been awarded an expansion team that will begin play in 2018. The new club will be owned by a Minnesota ownership group led by Dr. Bill McGuire, and the team will play in a new soccer-specific stadium in downtown Minneapolis. “We are proud to welcome Minnesota to Major League Soccer,” MLS Commissioner Don Garber said in a league statement. “The ownership group’s commitment to soccer and the community, the area’s growing millennial population and the region’s rich tradition of supporting soccer at all levels in Minnesota were key indicators that this was the right market. The passionate soccer fans in Minnesota will soon have a world-class, downtown soccer stadium that will serve as the home for the new MLS team and become a destination for marquee international sports events.”" - Jennifer Dittrich from Bookmarklet

Michigan's new recruiting tactic: Sucking up to your girlfriend
"So it's no surprise that Michigan is trying to circle a prospective recruit with a new tactic: sending a shamelessly syrupy hand-written card to his girlfriend. Wolverines assistant Jay Harbaugh, son of head coach Jim Harbaugh, wrote this note to the girlfriend of four-star Naseir Upshur: "Hi Savannah! I hope this note finds you doing great! My name is Jay Harbaugh -- I am the tight ends coach @ Michigan w/ the new staff. I have really enjoyed getting to know Pop lately -- & he speaks VERY highly of you so I'm sure you're very special! Keep him in line! Also we need to get him out here to visit us again & meet the new staff -- put in a good word! Hope to meet you when I'm out in PHI this spring!

Once thought lost, Harry Houdini's 'Grim Game' film reappears - LA Times
"It's the kind of magical reappearance that Houdini himself would have appreciated. For years, the only remaining footage of Harry Houdini's 1919 silent adventure thriller "The Grim Game" was a five-minute excerpt of a spectacular plane crash involving some spectacular derring-do from the legendary magician and escape artist. But thanks to the efforts of film preservationist Rick Schmidlin, the complete "The Grim Game" was found last year in the Brooklyn apartment of Larry Weeks, a 95-year-old retired juggler and Houdini fanatic. Weeks, who died late last year, had acquired the only known copy of the film from the Houdini estate in 1947." "The new restoration of "The Grim Game" is having its world premiere at the 2015 TCM Classic Film Festival at the Egyptian Theatre on Sunday evening. Composer Brane Zivkovic will be conducting a live performance of his new score." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet

"A man in Norway faces jail after cutting off his own hair and beard and then gluing it to another man’s head in an apparent attempt to create a toupée. According to prosecutor Harald Bilberg, the man, who is in his 40s, is claiming that the recipient of the home-made hairpiece had consented to the treatment. “He was bald, so the accused claims that they had agreed to create a toupée for the aggrieved party,” Bilberg told the Bergens Tidende newspaper. “I must admit that I have never encountered such a case in my career.”" - Jessie from Bookmarklet

"Native to a remote region of China, this tiny mammal, known as the Ili pika, doesn't know it's a member of an endangered species -- and neither do most people. Rarer -- and some would argue cuter-- than the panda, there are less than 1,000 of these teddy bear-like creatures living in the Tianshan mountain range in the Xinjiang region of northwestern China, says conservationist Li Weidong. Li discovered the pika, formally known as Ochotona iliensis, in 1983 and named it after his hometown, Ili. Last July, Li spotted and photographed the elusive creature for the first time since the early 1990s.
