My cat keeps going after the couch with her claws. We keep them clipped and try to redirect her attention to her scratching post, to no avail. Is there any way to keep her from destroying it? It's very frustrating when cats scratch our things, but it's a necessary behavior that relieves stress and may even prevent arthritis. Let's combine your great start of trimmed nails and an appropriate outlet with a few ideas to make your couch less tempting. Even if you cat's discipline strays, remember not to punish or yell.

Considering how far former President George W. Bush has stayed from politics since he left office in 2009, it's worth taking note of his decision this week to speak out in favor of comprehensive immigration reform. The issue is certainly not new for Mr. Bush - he has long been an advocate on the issue and counts his failure to enact a bill in 2007 as one of the great disappointments of his presidency. But what is particularly notable is the way he framed his remarks at a naturalization ceremony held Wednesday at his presidential center in Dallas.

Long before Karoline Hurd became involved with the Great American Backyard Campout, she and her young children would pitch tents and make s'mores behind the family's suburban home. "That's not the norm anymore," said Hurd, the senior manager of special events for the National Wildlife Federation. "Most American kids spend the majority of their time indoors. " As part of the National Wildlife Federation's Great Outdoors Month, the ninth Great American Backyard Campout is scheduled for June 22. The event is also part of an initiative to get 2 million more children outdoors for at least 30 minutes per week over the next two years.

Until last weekend, I had not slept on a pull-out couch in many years and had, more or less, forgotten the joys of this particular experience. But then my wife and I drove up to New York to visit old friends and spent a couple of nights sleeping - ha, that's a good one - on their pull-out couch. And all the horrible memories came flooding back: the lumpy, San Quentin-thin mattress, the taut springs that dig into your sides, the metal bar positioned to jab the middle of your back for maximum discomfort, the way the bed caves in toward the middle so if two people are sleeping on it, you will both be pulled by gravity to a tiny space that wouldn't hold one of the Smurfs, where you'll spend the night elbowing and kicking each other for more room.

Cleveland Browns coach Chris Palmer won't make it official yet, but it's probably time to pencil in Kentucky quarterback Tim Couch as the first pick in next month's draft.Couch had a good workout last week and seemed to quiet fears about his arm strength as he threw 60-yard passes. And he does float the ball at times, but Palmer says that can be corrected by working on his mechanics."I tell you, I'm glad this day is over," Couch said. "This was probably tougher than any game. This was a day I've been dreaming about since I was a little kid."

Tim Couch, the first pick in the 1999 draft, moves closer by the day to being a big-time bust this summer in Green Bay. Through two weeks of training camp, Couch, 27, has a tenuous grip on the Packers' No. 2 quarterback job - barely ahead of Doug Pederson, 36, and well behind Brett Favre, 34. Green Bay coaches like Couch's athleticism. It's his arm strength and delivery that have been found wanting. Couch has never thrown the deep ball well, but somewhere during his five seasons with the Cleveland Browns, he developed a hitch in his throwing motion that he didn't have at Kentucky.

When Lance Armstrong met last month with his own personal Javert , Travis Tygart of the anti-doping agency, he said after the frustrating meeting, "You don't hold the keys to my redemption. "Only one person holds the keys to my redemption, and that's me," he said, according to reporting in The Wall Street Journal. Mr. Armstrong was vacationing in Hawaii over Christmas, where Oprah Winfrey has a home, and it was then that she reached out to him. They met for lunch, and he agreed to a come-clean interview with her. Upon reflection, it appears, Mr. Armstrong decided that Oprah holds the key to his redemption.

KFC has declared itself the official sponsor of "couchgating," which KFC says is "the act of enjoying a big time sporting event from the comfort of your couch. " The company has launched a special section on the KFC Facebook page with contests, rules (e.g., "If you touch the wing, you eat the wing") and tips (e.g., "Shouting at the television usually makes your team do better"). It's kind of cute and it's all a promotion for KFC's new Gameday Bucket - eight pieces of chicken, eight hot wings and 10 Original Recipe bites, all for $19.99 at participating restaurants.

Leather couch needs a face-lift before the holidays I am expecting lots of company this holiday season, and my leather couch isn't up to the task. Short of buying all new, do you have any tips on how I can hide or repair the damage? Should I just throw a sheet over it? The people at Fibrenew, which specializes in the repair and restoration of leather, offer this advice: Don't use any products that contain alcohol or acetone. Alcohol seeps into and damages the protective surface of furniture leather.

We are gathered here today to memorialize a man who revolutionized our lives. So what did Eugene J. Polley do? What was the nature of his great leap forward? Did he invent the PC? Did he invent the cellphone? Did he invent the Internet? No. Eugene J. Polley invented the wireless remote. You young'uns won't remember this, but back in the day, when you wanted to change channels you had to actually get up from the couch and embark upon an arduous trip five, six, sometimes even seven feet across the living room, where you would manually turn a "dial" until the desired channel sprang into view in all its black-and-white glory.

Cleveland Browns coach Chris Palmer wasn't surprised that the Ravens were teeing off on rookie quarterback Tim Couch yesterday."I think it's like sharks that see blood. They know that they've got a young quarterback and they're coming hard after him," he said.The Ravens sacked Couch four times and caused a fumble on the Browns' 1-yard line in the second period that set up a touchdown and was the difference in Cleveland's 17-10 loss yesterday.Palmer, though, was still pleased with the progress made by the quarterback, who was the first player picked in this year's draft.

CLEVELAND -- Tim Couch had a touch of a virus yesterday and the entire Cleveland Browns' team had a sick look.Couch, the first pick in the collegiate draft last April, looked like a struggling rookie quarterback as he completed nine of 21 passes for 57 yards before he was yanked in the fourth quarter for the first time in his athletic career in the 41-9 loss to the Ravens.Although neither Couch nor coach Chris Palmer mentioned it, backup quarterback Ty Detmer said that Couch was suffering from a virus and that probably contributed to Palmer's decision.

Jason Berkowitz thought he and his family would be couch surfing for an indefinite period thanks to a problem that might seem bizarre this far removed from the housing bubble: They found a buyer for their Lutherville-Timonium townhouse within days , but not a suitable home to buy themselves. He's relieved to report that it all worked out. His family closed on a home in Phoenix (also in Baltimore County) last week. If you've been following his saga, it's the home he made a "Hail Mary" offer on that was initially rejected . Asking price: $515,000.

It's best to start this slice of Jake Arrieta lore with a minor discrepancy; it was either a couch or an overstuffed chair. The exact piece of furniture isn't essential, what Arrieta did with it and why, that's the point here. The fact that its identity is in dispute, however, is fitting. Because it's also impossible to perfectly define Arrieta, who Friday will become the youngest pitcher to start Opening Day for the Orioles since Mike Mussina in 1994. Is the 26-year-old right-hander arrogant or confident?
