He may be man’s best friend, but is he always treated as such? Dogs, cats, birds, they all age. As pets age, they experience changes in their bodies quite similar to what humans experience. They experience weight gain, energy loss and hair loss. They also experience aching bones and joints, fatigue, loss of hearing and loss of sight.
These are all normal symptoms of aging, no matter what your species may be. The pain, the memory loss, the discomfort, they are all a part of life, but is there to be no reprieve? It is for this reason that people are trying to get the word out about eye care for animals in Santa Rosa. Continue reading

Most of the drainage and plumbing systems used in households as well as commercial office buildings were probably installed by plumbers. Installing a plumbing system is no mean task. Many at times, homeowners are forced to call in these professionals to carry out the installation. This is because most homeowners fear that they may damage the system while trying to install it.
The job description of a plumber not only includes installation of plumbing systems. It also includes carrying out repair and maintenance procedures for the systems. After the systems have been installed, they are bound to wear and tear since they are frequently used. Once they become faulty, a homeowner will be forced to have them repaired or have them replaced with new ones. Whether he or she chooses to repair or replace, the plumber will still have to be contacted or the job. Continue reading
I’ve never seen a Frederick Wiseman movie, because he makes them for PBS and doesn’t release them widely. High School has sounded pretty compelling ever since Wes Anderson mentioned it in the Criterion Collection edition of Rushmore. Wiseman makes documentaries about American Institutions. He does very little preparation, shoots for four to six weeks, and then forms the movie in editing. His interview on the New Yorker Book Blog is really interesting.
In the interview he adopts the word “muddlement” and reacts to the idea that he makes “sad-comedy”:
I think a lot of the movies are very funny. But it’s not comedy that makes fun of the people; it’s comedy that emerges from very complex situations which often have no solution, and the situations are indicative, in one way or another, of the muddlement of the human behavior. And so they’re funny. And I find that kind of comedy sad, because often, while it’s funny, the basic situation is very sad. . . . “High School” is a sad comedy because the ideology of the school is such that some, although obviously not all, of the potential of the students is being thwarted by this mindless kind of conformism that represents the actual attitude of the school as opposed to the rhetorical attitude. It’s sad because the students are being trivialized.
It’s also worth noting that he’s pretty much never had anything to do with Hollywood and has made around 40 movies in his career. A pretty productive working life.
