I Enjoy Solitude - Don't Know Why



It seems as though the new Bark Avenue Dog Wash (of which I have previously made mention while it was under construction) is now open for business. I have not gone inside yet, but I snapped a quick shot of it yesterday  morning while on my daily fitness walk.

The new business is located off Pantano Road (near Speedway Blvd.) -- adjacent to the Fry's Market entrance.

According to their Facebook page, they opened Friday, August 2nd at 8 a.m. and they carry great dog and cat food product lines. All natural, healthy, limited ingredient foods:
Natural Balance
Petcurean (go! and now)
Blue Buffalo
Nature's Logic

Stephen Fry is an English actor, screenwriter, author, playwright, journalist, poet, comedian, television and radio presenter, film director, activist, and board member of Norwich City Football Club.

After a troubled childhood and adolescence, during which he was expelled from two schools and spent three months in prison for credit card fraud, he secured a place at Queens' College, Cambridge, where he studied English Literature. While at university, Fry became involved with the Cambridge Footlights, where he met his long-time collaborator Hugh Laurie (Dr. House). As half of the comic double act Fry and Laurie, he co-wrote and co-starred in A Bit of Fry & Laurie, and took the role of Jeeves (with Laurie playing Wooster) in Jeeves and Wooster.

I don't suppose anyone else reading this is interested in Stephen Fry. But I am, and that's what counts.

On this day, August 8 in 1974, Richard Nixon announced that he would resign the office of the President at noon the next day, August 9. He had been engulfed by a major political scandal that began with the bungled burglary and wiretapping of the Democratic Party's campaign headquarters in the Watergate apartment complex in Washington, D.C., on June 17, 1972. Senate investigations eventually revealed that the President had been personally involved in the subsequent cover-up of the break-in.

The Watergate affair had far-ranging impact, both at home and abroad. In the United States, the scandal shook the faith of the American people in the presidency, but, in the final analysis, the nation survived the constitutional crisis, thus reinforcing the system of checks and balances and proving that no one is above the law, not even the president.
