For some reason I like Larry Bowa but I don't think they are even thinking of him.  I don't want Mattingly and I hope they replace Ron Guidry as pitching coach.

Yeh he's a old time Phili player but I dont think he's the right fit for the Yanks....Mattingly is a good batting coach but Im telling ya..Girardi!!!!Younger feisty Italian guy!! NY will love him  Very Happy

I hear what you are saying.  He was with one of their championship teams.  He announces for New York and I think the fans like him also.

One of my neighbors did this for Halloween..

Took a very large Tide plastic container. Put water in it to hold it down and put it in the tub to soak off the labels. She did it with another shaped Tide container. 

The labels came off put she had to use the green scrubbing pads to get off the glue.

Then she took pumpkin stencils and cut them out of the containers. Put a hole in the bottom and put a one light thingie in there and plugged it in. Left the blue tops on. Shines better than a pumpkin.

Really neat!

Just got back from dinner.  My husbands stepsister and her husband live in San Diego County in an area called Rancho Santa Fe.  Lot's of houses burned down in that area.  They evacuated the other night and still can't go back.  They happen to own a business flying helicopters so they were able to fly over and see that their house was spared. 

They had JUST, before the fire cleared the area around their home..you can still see the equipment in the field.  Their home is the one with the 2 solar panels on the roof.

This will blow the margins for some...sorry.  But it's a cool photo:

I heard on the news that Eucalyptus trees were highly flamable and that as the fires approached them, they "popped" like machine guns. They said that they were ornamental trees used in landscaping around homes. I think that if I lived in a fire prone area, my yard would look like your in-laws bare field! It looks like they saved their home and probably others with their effort!

Yep, came that close.  It skirted all around their property but their house wasn't touched.  I'm sure that's because they had just cleared all the brush away.

Yes, in Orange County the Santiago fire there are alot of Eucalyptus trees.  I hate those trees.  Besides being very flamable, they drop leaves and branches all the time.  They are a mess.

There is an area called Lake Forest...not far from the Santiago fire in Orange County.  The "Forest" part of Lake Forest is tons of Eucalyptus trees with houses.  I never could figure out why anyone would want to live in the forest part of Lake Forest.

Yup it helps bigtime..Look's like that is what saved there home for sure!! I spent some time in Lake Arrowhead and we did alot of Fire Break..Clearing off all the dry brush away from our home..When those Santa Ana's are blowin and the weather is hot and you have arsonist's its a deadly mix. Some of those homes by remote canyons theres not much they can do Sad

Great pics, Klaas.  Thank goodness their home was spared,  they are so fortunate!  Eucalyptus trees are what fueled the Oakland Hills firestorm in 1991.  They are very oily and therefore highly flammable.

Has anyone ever thought of compiling the "funnies" on SM into a book? I swear, I'd buy one! There's been a boat load of memorable moments!

BTW, *******, got your message and responded.  Wink It was my inspiration for this post.

Klaas.......I'll bet it smelled great if nothing else. I love the way Eucalyptus smells!
