Which brings to mind, how is the next batch of the new stuff coming along Web Foot?

Well, we're still scratching our heads about what to try next to get the characteristics right. I'll let you know when one of us has a brain wave!!

Here's a funny story, though. Someone I've been working with on formula refinements had an idea that they wanted me to try. The rough lab sample I got on Monday was so stinky that I nixed it! Seriously -- it had my gag reflexes going so badly I had to open the windows to let in some fresh air. Not only would nobody buy the stuff twice, I didn't want to have a pile of it anywhere near my house!! Yuck! What an adventure!! At least I didn't have to buy 500-1000 pounds of that one to see if it worked or not. And I know someone is going to ask: yes, I did try it with both knife and gouge -- and no, it didn't carve enough better to make it worthwhile to wear a gas mask while cutting. LOL!

Hmmm, wonder if that would be a wild animal deterrent? It would certainly be a muggle deterrent! Could be a selling point, you never know!

Meh. Not likely, my dawg likes to roll in the stinkiest stuff she can find, it's more likely to be a critter magnet.

YMMV, and invariably will...
