Dog Day Morning

Tuesday, April 14, 2015
By John Hitch

I’ll start out by admitting that I’m an idiot sometimes. My wife told me not to give that mammoth store-bought ham bone to our boxer, whose allergies include but are not excluded to: gluten, poultry, dust and grass. Ham wasn’t on the list, so I thought it would be cool. After the dog devoured that pig femur down to the marrow, my wife kindly showed me the warning label that advised against dogs doing such a thing. The shards could really do severe damage to a dog’s intestinal track, so we watched her closely for that Thursday night and the following day. She seemed fine, so I thought the crisis was averted. Stories where crises are averted don’t wind up on floor care companies’ blogs, so you can imagine what I woke up to the next day was pretty horrific.

Spring (Cleaning) Training

Saturday, April 04, 2015
By John Hitch

As baseball’s spring training winds down in preparation for the season, most of us are gearing up for spring cleaning, in preparation for not living in a pigsty.

While we can’t wait for Opening Day and America’s past time starts up again, we will pass the time getting our homes clean. (They’re not dirty, per se, but the windows were closed for six months and humans shed all their outer skin cells in about four weeks.) We thought that while coaches are busy tinkering with their rosters, we should create our own batting order to beat up on dirt. So here’s our fantasy team, along with a detailed scouting report, on the Hoover products to draft for a successful cleaning season.
