    @MildredM thank you for the compliment and you are correct, I said "yuck" when I opened it as well. Thankfully it doesn't look as bad now.

    Sounds like we need a 'most scaled internals' thread! We can vote and then award a prize at the year end!

    @jimbojohn55 it was pretty bad but a lot was dry and brittle, so it came out in chunks before soaking.
