National Dog Day, Etc.


NOTICE: Although we have been celebrating National Dog Day on August 26th for the last 11 years, this year it was brought to our attention that National Dog Day was drawing focus away from Women's Equality Day and thus, out of respect for this extremely important day of recognition and observation for women's rights everywhere, we are happy to permanently change the date of our celebration to August 31st, to end the Dogs Days of Summer with a grand celebration.


Three more 2016 presidential candidates

Benjamin Solomon "Ben" Carson, Sr.
born September 18, 1951
Ben Carson is an American author, politician, retired Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon, and an overall nice guy.

But remember what Leo Durocher once kinda said, "Nice guys finish last."

Cara Carleton "Carly" Fiorina (née Sneed)
born September 6, 1954

Carly Fiorina is a Republican politician and former business executive who rose to the top in two major American companies . . . and then failed in each. Oh,  and she was an adviser to Republican John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign, which he lost.

Christopher James "Chris" Christie
(born September 6, 1962)

Chris Christie is the 55th Governor of New Jersey. He is running for president in the 2016 election, although running is perhaps the wrong word to use.


I honestly don't know what to think about this fellow

"Obama started this war on police intentionally
... right in line with his community agitating."

Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. is the 64th Sheriff of Milwaukee County. In 2002, Clarke was appointed to a vacancy by Governor Scott McCallum, and later elected that same year to his first four-year term. He was re-elected in November 2006, 2010, and 2014, and is currently serving his fourth full term.

Just don't know what to think about him.


Did You Know . . .?

August 26 was National Dog Day, but now it's today, August 31, 2015. Oh yeah, I already mentioned this.



On this day in 1997, Diana, Princess of Wales died as a result of injuries sustained in a car crash near Paris, France. Her friend, Dodi Fayed, and the driver of the Mercedes-Benz W140, Henri Paul, were pronounced dead at the scene; the bodyguard of Diana and Dodi, Trevor Rees-Jones, was the only survivor. Although the media blamed the paparazzi following the car, an 18-month French judicial investigation found that the crash was caused by Paul, who lost control of the car at high speed while drunk.
