    DETROIT, Michigan — U.S. safety regulators are warning owners of more than 4.7 million vehicles that have been recalled for air bag problems to get them repaired immediately. The warning issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration covers vehicles from multiple manufacturers that date to 2002. *CLICK HERE FOR A COMPLETE LIST AND TO SEE IF YOU’RE AFFECTED* Inflators can rupture in air bags made by Takata Corp., causing metal fragments to fly out when the bags are inflated in crashes.

    Head coach Mike Pettine's motto for his team this season was "Play Like a Brown". I imagine what he meant by that phrase was the historical Browns that departed in 1995. What we saw on Sunday against Jacksonville, was more similar to the teams we have seen since the return to the league in 1999. On a telecast years ago Verne Lundquist described a play by uttering the phrase, "I don't know what that was, but it sure was ugly." That was an apt phrase for yesterday's entire game against the Jaguars. Brian Hoyer Last week, I said that Brian Hoyer reminded me a lot of ex Browns and Buckeyes…

    A truck driver in an 18-wheeler is accused of leading police on a high-speed chase across four Northern Ohio counties. The pursuit stretched from Sandusky to outside Bowling Green. Authorities say the driver stole several items from a dollar store. If he had pulled over right away, he would be facing a charge of petty theft; now, he’s facing a number of felonies. *See the video above in Jack Shea’s report*

Susan Schrivjer, a mother from Fort Myers, launched a petition in early October to have White — and other “Breaking Bad” action figures — removed from Toys R Us.

    A scientist got quite the surprise during a trip to the rainforest in Guyana. He thought what he heard would turn out to be a possum or a rat. Instead, it was a puppy-sized spider. According to Live Science, Piotr Naskrecki was taking a nighttime walk when he heard rustling. It turned out to a spider known as the Goliath birdeater– the world’s largest spider. Naskrecki told Live Science the spider’s leg span can reach up to a foot– about the size of “a child’s forearm,” with a body the size of “a large fist.” He said the spider does not…

Knight was kidnapped in August 2002 at the age of 21. She says that she now realizes that Castro had a disease, and says that she has learned from therapy that what he did had not been his fault. In May 2013, Knight, Amanda Berry, and Gina DeJesus broke out of the home where they were held captive and tortured for years. Knight, 33, says that it was about a year and a half after they…

The orbiters made it through intact, and took advantage of the "near-miss" comet, Comet C/2013 A1 Siding Spring, to study the effects that he had on the Martian atmosphere.

    The Kansas City Royals have swept their way through three rounds of the playoffs. The Kansas…City…Royals…look like an unstoppable juggernaut destined to win the 2014 World Series. It’s starting to sink in, but it still doesn’t make a ton of sense. The Indians went 10-9 against the Royals this year, finishing up four games behind them in the chase for the 2ndAL Wild Card berth. The two teams appear similar when you look at those two stats, but in reality they couldn’t be more different. The Royals are winning with defense, speed, timely hitting, a lights out bullpen and two really…

Sometimes we see the dichotomy not just from game to game or inning to inning, but from at-bat to at-bat. I’ll get into Danny Salazar’s historically odd start much more later on, but the offense is not blameless in the Tribe’s less than optimal start to the season. The Indians have grounded into 11 double plays as of Saturday, 3rdhighest in the league. Santana (4) and Brantley (3) are responsible for over half of those between the two of them, and…

    Random musings on a fall evening in September.I can't wait to decorate my new house. We're officially homeowners and my excitement level for this move has grown exponentially. I can't wait to start this phase of our lives.I also can't wait to put our shower and wedding gifts to use. My bridal shower was in March and our wedding was in May and since then, all of our fantastic gifts have been living in my Mom's garage. Not for long!My new iPhone 6 is pretty swell. It's gold with a clear case and it's sexy.How does one gain 15lbs over the course of a summer? No seriously, HOW?!? Over it.I'm…

    Never did I think that when my Detroit-Shoreway townhouse sold and I moved into CK's apartment in Brooklyn that I would be sitting in the same aforementioned apartment typing this blog post almost a year later.I haven't talked much about the struggle that CK and I have had finding a house on this blog because, quite frankly, it's been too painful, stressful and miserable. I didn't realize how much the idea of moving to the south suburbs would affect me. I can be honest and say I wanted nothing to do with it. I want to stay in Cleveland proper, close to the lake, close to my friends, closer to…

    Man, this summer has been fantastic. I can't believe it's Labor Day Weekend all ready. How the heck did that happen? Well, let's look at some photos from the last month and try to piece it all together.Interested in hearing the loudest screams and squeals you've ever heard? Surprise your step-daughter on her 7th birthday with a trip to Cedar Point. The kiddo had the best time ever, conquered new roller coasters like the Gemini (the real one not the photo-op one) and ate the biggest snow cone I've ever seen. Making memories at Cedar Point is one of my favorite pastimes. Marina at Westlake…

    Recently, CK and I had the opportunity to spend a lovely evening at the new Westin Cleveland Downtown Hotel propertyincluding a night in swanky suite and dinner at Urban Farmer - oh, what a treat it was.First impression? It didn't feel like I was in Cleveland. Second impression? I was in Cleveland (cue smiling, happy staff, reasonable prices and plenty of stunning Downtown Cleveland views) and it was FANTASTIC. There's local art throughout the hotel space curated by LAND Studio and Epstein Design Partners, gorgeous interiors with modern amenities and an overall attention to detail that one…

    On more than one occasion I've stated that I "detox to retox," which basically means, I spin my butt off at Psycle (detox) then enjoy my life as a bubbles and food aficionado (retox).Life is a balance, people.Similarly, there's a fantastic benefit happening on Sunday, August 24 at Crocker Park called SPIN FOR DIN. Same detox/retox idea but for a way more worthy cause, the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland.My friends at Psycle are bringing the indoor cycling experience to an outdoor setting at Crocker Park in Westlake. With 4 classes to choose from, including one with a live DJ, and all…

  • Inspiring Mud Rooms

    Last year, we helped a friend redo her mud room.  I shouldn't really say 'redo'.  It was more of an empty shell made into a beautiful, functional space for her family. The best thing about the finished room is that she loves it, her family loves it, and it is a perfect place to hang coats and leave wet shoes.  Here was the 'before'.  Very, very rough...  We added a pantry on one side.  Later we added bi-fold doors here. From a very rough cement slab to great looking tile on the floor.  A year later and it still looks beautiful. …

       Last weekend we changed out our old light fixture in our dining room to a ceiling fan.  The room has three windows, but none of them open.  More than once, I've looked across the table at my son  and he's sweating!  Yes, we definitely needed a change!      We decided on the Hunter Fan Company's Claymore 54" ceiling fan with the light kit.  We ordered it on a Friday and it was here before the following weekend.  It took less than an hour from start to finish to take the old fixture down and install the new…

     My husband saved this neat scotch bottle for me.  I love the shape of it.     I started by soaking it in soapy water to remove the labels.     A quick trip to The Graphics Fairy to get this very fun graphic.    I needed a mirror image of it so it would come out correctly on the transfer paper.   I tried to print it off in color, but my printer wasn't cooperating.  Instead, I printed it in black and white on a piece of iron on transfer paper.       I cut the transfer…

  • LeBron: Bulls are better than Cavs

    It might be hedging his bets. It might be setting expectations. It might be a way to motivate his own teammates. But one way or another, Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James says he thinks the Chicago Bulls are a better team than the Wine and Gold as presently constructed. “[The Bulls] are a team that’s much better than us right now just off chemistry,” James said. “They’ve been together for a while, we’ve got a long way to go. “You’ve got to go through something to create a bond; that means for the worse. We’ve got to lose ballgames…

As always big thanks to Andy, Andre and Eric the Referee for having me on. The post Browns lose to Jags – Craig on Dawgs on the Run appeared first on Waiting For Next Year.

    LeBron James went off to college and came back to Cleveland having learned a few things. According to Yahoo’s Marc J. Spears, James held a players-only meeting before the first practice this season in which he specifically laid out expectations for each and every player on the Cavs. “I was looking like, ‘Wow.’ That’s crazy that he broke down every individual thing he wants guys to do,” Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters told Yahoo Sports. “He wrote down every player from the guy in training camp who may be here or may not be here. …It was unbelievable.

  • It’s not time for Johnny Manziel to take over… yet

    20 Oct 2014 | 8:34 am
    Despite an awful showing in Jacksonville against a really bad Jaguars team, it’s not time for Johnny Football. Brian Hoyer and the Cleveland Browns offense had a miserable day, but there’s little reason to think it would have been better with Johnny Manziel under center. His mobility might have helped at times, but it’s silly to think that the Browns were one player—even a quarterback—away from winning that game. Anyone could look at a few Brian Hoyer plays and imagine a scenario where Johnny Manziel might have done a better job, but consider the rest of the things that…

    Well that will fix it! The Browns have responded to their poor performance against the Jaguars on Sunday by releasing starting fullback Ray Agnew and replacing him with Kiero Small off of the practice squad. Small is a 5-9, 242-pound rookie out of Arkansas. Originally selected by Seattle in the seventh round, Small spent the first seven weeks of the season on the Browns’ practice squad. He appeared in 26 games during his two years at Arkansas, where he was moved to fullback after playing linebacker at Hartnell Community College. A native of Baltimore, Md., Small graduated from Cardinal…
