Gonzo Wonder SpongeI usually use a dry paintbrush to dust my lampshades, but I found something that worked even better. I had a shade that, even after dusting, was still grimy. I thought I was going to have to replace it, but I tried a sponge called Gonzo Wonder Sponge that is to be used dry only, not wet.

Seeking Childbearing Advice?On the serious side, I have a precious niece who has been through all kinds of fertility treatments to no avail. This is depressing to a young couple who can offer a child a loving home and anything it could ever want. The only procedure they have not yet tried is invetro fertilization.The procedure is like $13000. Does anyone know of a clinic where they try for one price as many times as it takes to achieve success? With adoption as risky as it is today this is a scary process as well. And what can you really say to encourage someone who's seen failure time after time? You have many wonderful readers and I'm sure someone can offer helpful advice. Thanks in advance!

Getting Rid of Cat Urine Smell for Future Cats?We had a 10 yr old cat, who peed in several spots in my daughters room and in the upstairs hallway. I cleaned it very well, using vinegar, the smells are gone to the human nose. My fear is that even though it has been 3 yrs the new kitten may be able to smell it and think that it is OK to pee there. What do you all think?
