With clever and smile-inducing greeting cards featuring titles such as " Awkward Dating Card " and the " Aaaaaahhh! You're Having a Baby! Card ," it's safe to say items from designer Emily McDowell won't suffer from being boring. McDowell's line of quirky tea towels are no different, a light way to decorate your kitchen or to give as a gift. (Or, perhaps to throw over a chair for a fun look?) Prints include cheeky recipes -- one proclaims the green smoothie as the food item of choice for Los Angeles -- as well as food photography tips.

The silly swimming pool incident isn't even dry yet and, still, the Arizona Diamondbacks recklessly insist on jumping back into the deep end with the Dodgers.

Actually, he is enjoying the experience. "They're great guys and I've gotten to know them on a personal basis," Mills said.

Sisters of Los Angeles , the line of haute-modern gifts and souvenirs celebrating local pride, has unveiled some new products for the summer season that are too good to pass up.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - I've put my life on the line to be here in this rathole with our Clippers. And so I expect more than what I got from them Thursday in a rather flat 12-point loss to Memphis in Game 3. The Clippers played a step slow, as if hesitant to go on the attack, even though that's just a way of life here if you want to survive. True story, and I shouldn't be trashed for reporting the facts: They just put up billboards at the Memphis city limits that read: "Danger: Enter at Your Own Risk.
