My dog loves dried sweet potato chews. They go for $20 a bag in the pet store even though the only ingredients are potatoes. It must be that I can make them at home for the cost of a potato. at Ask Metafilter

    I have to say, I saw the Premier Clue Board at Restoration Hardware and was so excited, but upon closer inspection it was disappointing. The quality control wasn’t great–stickers applied crooked, etc. Sad.

    For a certain kind of nerd/awesome person it would be fun to DIY a truly great 3D Clue game…

    I work with youth in a large congregation in Pennsylvania. My first event with them was a retreat based on the game clue. We turned the Fellowship Hall of the church into a Clue board and each room had activities which related directly. It’s still one of my favorite memories *grin*

    Someday if I have a large house, I think it would be a *blast* to host a dinner party like that…

    I LOVE my Hadley glasses, totally and with complete abandon. (well not the type of abandon that might cause breakage of the lovely delicate glasses)

    I don’t own the model of Teva’s you linked, as I am a between the toe person. But Teva’s are my go to sandal company. I live in FL so I wear flip flops year round (like 4 or 5 times a week) as I work out of the house. My current pair is close to two years old and I am just now thinking of retiring them. I pressure washed our back porch, got them caked in crud and they looked great after going through the washer.

    And no I do NOT work for teva but if they would like to pay me in free shoes I will.

    I have problems w/the in between the toes thing too. I am in love with Merrell’s Pesaro Sandals – they come in many different colors (including leather) and are beyond comfy. They are a little pricey, but I’ve had mine for a few years, and I wear them all the time and love them!!!
