Poodle Grooming in Vienna
Since James is a Poodle, he needs groomed often. We usually like to get him groomed every 4-6 weeks. When we were visiting the hospital and school on a regular basis as a therapy dog, I usually had James groomed every 4 weeks. Sometimes even as often as every 3 weeks. We had James groomed in DC right before we left for Vienna. So we knew we would have about 4 weeks to find a Poodle groomer in Vienna. We started asking around and looking online. Luckily, we found a groomer that had a white ...

What EXACTLY do you mean?
So back to the topic of bad business decisions. I know you were wishing for a longer post last time but as it turns out we should have plenty to talk about from time to time just because people make bad decisions.

Hindsight is 20/20, or is it?
Not too long ago, June 28, 1914 to be exact there was an assassination that threw the world into the first World War. Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria. Recently I visited the Army Museum in Vienna Austria (The Heeresgeschichtliches Museum), you are welcome for the translation :), which features an exhibit on the assassination. At first I was not sure what I was looking at, mostly because all of the signage is in German but also because the previous room was a display of weapons ...
