ART OF THE WEEK
The Kit-Cat Klock is an art deco novelty wall clock shaped like a grinning cat with cartoon eyes that swivel in time with its pendulum tail. It is traditionally black, but models in other colors and styles are available.
The first clock was designed by Earl Arnault (1904-1971) in 1932 and made by the Allied Manufacturing Company in Portland, Oregon. Allied subsequently moved to Seattle, Washington, in the early 1940s and then to southern California in 1962, whereupon it was renamed California Clock Company.
The clock’s design has changed little in the intervening years, with the first generation, manufactured from the 1930s–early 1950s having two paws and no bow tie, and newer models having four paws and a bow tie.
In the 1960s genuine crystals were added as accents to some clocks. The words “Kit-Cat” were added to the clock’s face in 1982. The original clocks were AC-powered, but due to scarcity of American-made AC motors, the clock was redesigned for battery power in the late 1980s.
The manufacturer estimates that an average of one clock has been sold every three minutes for the last 50 years.
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
I have been friends with Americans and Germans, who served in WWII, I served in Vietnam with a sailor who was on the battleship and saw Japan sign their surrender papers. And I actually got to see President Eisenhower once in person.
General Dwight Eisenhower
Dwight David “Ike” Eisenhower (October 14, 1890 – March 28, 1969), was an American army general and statesman who served as the 34th president of the United States from 1953 to 1961.
During World War II, he became a five-star general in the Army and served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force in Europe. He was responsible for planning and supervising the invasion of North Africa in Operation Torch in 1942–43 and the successful invasion of Normandy in 1944–45 from the Western Front.

Opened in 1957, the bridge is just about 5 miles long (4.995 mi; 8.038 km).
Would you like to experience driving on this bridge?
