Apartment Therapy

I once lived in a London apartment with five other girls, one of whom made "fudge" once a week: marshmallows and chocolate chips melted in the microwave and spread into a baking dish. The girls would come home punchdrunk on cheap vodka and British accents and hack at the congealed mess with forks, fingers, whatever. These dishes sat in the kitchen for weeks, faux-fudge finding a home in a plastic bowl, a wok, whatever was clean, until it wasn't clean, none of it, and I lost my mind a bit and piled all the dirty dishes and orphaned socks and dog-eared books in front of the door of the offending roommate while she slept and then didn't speak to her for the rest of the three-month stay.

A faithful dog has saved his owner who was badly injured after falling down a 15-foot bank into a creek in Cornwall. Sensing something was wrong, the dog went to get help and barked at a passerby, who was able to raise the alarm. The dog's 79-year-old owner had fallen down the side of a small creek off the Helford River. He had fallen into the water and bleeding and unable to move.

Residents of a Devon village have taken to the streets en masse to encourage motorists to slow down before there is a serious accident. More than 40 residents of Dartington, near Totnes, felt the traffic problem has got so bad, it is 'an accident waiting to happen' and they had 'no option' but to take action to raise drivers' awareness that the roads are spaces to be shared with cyclists and pedestrians including schoolchildren and dog walkers. In the rush hour, groups walked up and down...

Surprisingly, there's a significant overlap between Tindie sellers and Kickstarter some sellers test their ideas on Tindie and build up to doing a crowd funding campaign. Others complete a campaign and then come over to Tindie to sell excess inventory or second runs. Either way, there's a great opportunity for market verification or simply getting your gear into the hands of those who want to use it. If you want to get in on the Kickstarter chat action, head on over to the Tindie Dog Park . Request to join the project and show up in the chat sometime before 1pm Pacific on Tuesday, May 2.

Enlarge (credit: Getty | Barcroft Media ) Law enforcement agencies across the country are raising alarms about the increasing trend of finding heroin laced with an extremely lethal elephant tranquilizer called carfentanil, The Washington Post reports . The drug is 10,000 times stronger than morphine and 100 times stronger than fentanyl, just two milligrams of which is lethal—that’s about one toss of a salt shaker. Carfentanil can be absorbed through the skin, and just a puff from re-sealing a plastic bag can be lethal, raising risks for first-responders. Just a whiff can kill a drug-sniffing dog. Though authorities are struggling to identify it in overdose cases—and sometimes not trying due to the health riskscarfentanil has been linked to dramatic increases in overdoses, which were already at alarming levels amid the nationwide opioid epidemic.

I would have Corbin reign as the midcard champ, pit Cena in high-profile stories outside the title picture and let a smarmy, relentless, terse heel Reigns lead the way as the top titleholder. The Big Dog generate massive reactions, and I would like to harness that as much as possible. Beaston: From the moment this concept was developed, I knew I wanted Finn Balor, Gallows and Anderson on the same roster. Together, they will comprise The Balor Club and reign over the roster with a ruthlessness not seen since the heyday of the New World Order. Braun Strowman and Seth Rollins will begin as rivals, waging war with each other on a weekly basis, before both are viciously attacked by the faction and forced to put their differences aside to fend off Balor Club. Strength in numbers, even if the Superstars do not trust each other. This does not mean Strowman will be turned babyface.

Here's an interesting example of a company evolving new products around a central idea: Bissell got their start in the late 1800s producing carpet sweeping devices. By the 1950s they'd branched out into carpet-cleaning contraptions, and in the 1970s, carpet deep cleaning machines. In the 2000s, vacuums targeting owners of fur-shedding pets. Now they've combined the latter two categories, adapting a carpet-cleaning machine to harmlessly wash dogs. As an owner of two dogs, I have been through the exact hell depicted in this video for the Bissell Barkbath : The Barkbath, if it works as advertised, would be worth every penny of the $150 asking price, versus paying professional groomers to do it. Isolating the mess to the inside of a tank you can pour out, and obviating the need to scrub your entire bathroom down every time you wash your dog(s), would be a huge boon.
