Two Things: Red vs. Blue (Not a fan of the new stuff) *AND* a New Photo of RLH 39...

The FINE, FINE, FINE folks at Rooster Teeth are brilliant.


Ever since catching "Real Life vs. The Internet", I was hooked... I ended up watching every Red vs. Blue video following Sarge, Donut, Grif, Church, Caboose... all the "guys"...

vs. Blue!

If you've never treated yourself to these movies (made by using the video game, Halo - Combat Evolved in a process known as Machinima,) take a few minutes out of your online life to laugh yourself senseless by watching "Real Life vs. The Internet" and then, if like me, you enjoyed it, go to Rooster Teeth's main page and watch some of the videos offered...

That said, I can't say I'm a big fan of the new "mini-series" offered named Out of Mind which, sadly, is not offering the same amount of whacky humour... at least, the first three are not impressing me.

Still, I'm open to rebuttals... is anyone who's already a fan enjoying Out of Mind? So far, the only thing that's made me slightly giggle is the guard who, when blown up into the sky yells "Crrrrriiiiiiiikeyyyy!" and when he lands with a thud on the ground, simply says, "Bollocks!"

Beyond that, I'm left a bit cold... and missing Sarge and Grif.


Okay, if you managed to get through yesterday's post without giving in to the urge to simply say...

Charles Nelson Riley

...and click off without reading...

...and you read about our "second plan" should (God forbid) RLH 3 get scrapped, sold-off, or worse... we would see about RLH 39 which is in Lake Havasu City, Arizona...

RLH 39

Well, I was VERY pleased to see a new picture of her on the RLH Information Centre Website which, sadly, is new and I don't have permission to post here... but have a "boo" by clicking here (opens new window).

Again, don't get me wrong... Regent Low Height Three (click here - opens new window) is our main goal and the bus we have our sites set on... and are genuinely in need of help rescuing (see the bottom of this posting for details)... but I do like good ol' RLH 39... and if I thought I could, I'd be trying to wrangle her too!

...but we'll all be VERY happy if we can snag RLH 3...


...of course, RLH 62 in Columbus, Ohio is much closer to home...

Three RLH buses...?

Nah, Sue and the little one would kill me!

RLH 3 is our bus... and we hope to rescue her from Santa Rosa, California where, indeed, she's currently in a barn being used as a garbage tip. :(


I'm gonna beg at the bottom of the posting as usual, but please... rescuing Regent Low Height Three is very important to a whole family... and for many, many reasons...


If you have some time, please click here (opens new window) and read why this bus is so special to us... and perhaps you can help us rescue the bus, make a dream come true, and save a piece of history all at the same time...

Please help us save one old dusty green bus... and make a dream come true...


The usual last note on the old blog... PLEASE SUPPORT THE DREAM!

Please don't forget about our pixel ad site, HelpCoverTheBus.Com and our PayPal donation button (see the upper-right hand side of the blog) and, of course, the NEW Cafe Press shop for T-Shirts and shtuff! (...and who doesn't need some shtuff!)

Please help us make this dream a reality and save a piece of history! entire family would thank you!

The Current Time in Toronto is...

One Old Green Bus

This blog was started in April of 2006... its original itent was really twofold. One was to be a "sounding board" for it's author... and the other... well...

At the time we started this, your humble author was unemployed and going through the usual crisis situations that arise from being jobless.

We (my wife, stepdaughter, and I,) used to "amuse" ourselves (read: Take our minds off our troubles) by more-or-less fantasizing as a family about what we'd do when things "turned around". Along this route, we discussed going to England on a vacation... and in that, alighted on "double-decker buses".

We kind of adopted one bus... Regent Low Height 3... as Our Bus... and we used to talk about what we'd do with "our bus" if we got it... from fixing it up to the trips we'd take on it.

Along the way, we became students of the history of this bus which HONESTLY seemd it was truly for us... trouble was, we couldn't afford the bus and weren't in a position to work towards the bus... so we had a couple of options...

Since the bus' position was sketchy (there's a chance she might be sold for scrap or "carved up" in other ways,) we could forget about her and pretend she didn't exist...

...or we could TRY... ask for help... put our dream of owning and saving "One Old Green Bus" into the universe and see what happens...

As of February, 2008, we knew that there was a perspective buyer for the bus (not us, obviously,) and made some difficult decisions... The first was that we wouldn't "beg" for help anymore and give the little money we received to a few different charities both online and off... and the second was simply hope that either we find a corporate sponsor (for an "ad" idea we have, click here to about read that,) or even a patron who see's the value in a silly family's dream...

But, if the bus is about to be purchased by someone who's planning on restoring it and they "get there first", we wish them well and are glad that at least Our One Old Green Bus is in a safe place being looked after.

For now, though, we are still hoping WE might be the ones to get our One Old Green Bus and see a family dream come true...

Regardless, this blog WILL continue... and we will still "go for" a bus of our own... but this blog will ALWAYS be dedicated to our own One Old Green Bus.
