Dodgers Name New Manager

Kaido Lenhardt was announced as the new manager for the Los Angeles Dodgers today, replacing former skipper Grady Little, who resigned yesterday.

The first dog ever to be hired as a major league manager, Kaido has literally no experience managing a baseball team and the signing has many fans, sportswriters and others within the world of baseball scratching their heads.

Why was this beautiful 28-year-old flat coat retriever chosen to lead the Dodgers in 2008?

“He’s a very well-behaved mutt and he knows baseball,” Dodgers spokesperson Tommy LaSagna said. “When we threw him a baseball, he caught it in mid-air with his mouth. Joe Torre can't do that. He also showed us his signals, which were very impressive. One bark means bunt. A bark and a growl is the hit-and-run. We haven’t figured out what it means when he lifts his leg, however. We think it might be an indication that he’s unhappy with the umpire.”

Kaido’s contract is for one human year, which is seven years in dog time. It has been reported that he will be paid in kibble, doggy toys and a brand new, tri-level doghouse complete with a wading pool and hot tub.

Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting has really come a long way, with the new technology, innovative designs and incredible engineering. In the old days, anything with a light bulb that could shed light was considered workable. Now, with track lighting and lighting banks, recessed lighting and much more, you really can never go wrong. There’s something for every style and budget. The world of outdoor lighting is exciting, man – become a part of it and put some new lighting in the domicile in which you reside – you’ll be darn happy that you did!

Cliffside Malibu

So many people in this country today are addicted to some type of drug. It's become a huge problem. I am astounded whenever I hear of close friends who are hooked on prescription pain killers and things like that. That’s why drug rehabilitation centers are more popular now than ever. I just wrote an article recently for a wonderful drug rehab center in Malibu called Cliffside. These people are truly professional and really understand addiction and how to help people beat it. It’s a different approach for each individual and they succeed! If you know anyone who is addicted to something and it’s reached the serious stage – check them out. Drug rehabs have been getting a bad rap a lot lately, but this place is really special!
