Raiders Of The Lost Garage ..... And The Great God Gazooky ...

I LOVE going to garage and yard sales ... and in the virtual world I have been known to spend far too much time on ebay. So when Raiders Of The Lost Garage put a bid in for our roomie this week I couldn't resist!

Raiders Of The Lost Garage features hard to find and obscure items that you may bid on. Treasures include Movies, Toys, Books, Games, with a large enough variety that there is definitely something for everyone.

Please help us welcome Raiders Of The Lost Garage by clicking on their thumbnail to the top right and don't forget to let them know the bus loons sent ya! And be certain to check daily ... as you never know what you might find!

Speaking of raiding other people's garages ... I found the Great God Gazooky (named thusly by me) last year whilst yard sailing.....

He was sold to me for $2.00 Cdn. His previous owner had stated he had paid $1.00 Cdn for him at another garage sale and had brought him some luck. He couldn't let him go though without making a little profit. So the bargain was struck.

Quite happy with my purchase and having no idea the Great God's worth (beyond he was a fabulous addition to my collection of bric a brac) I decided to do some checking on who he actually was .... and as it turns out ... my Great God is valued at over $100.00 US ... lucky indeed .... and NO he is not for sale ........

Also this week for your surfing pleasure honourable mentions go to:

Voices In My Head - I listen to mine, Do you listen to yours?

A Yoga Coffee Outlook - Giving away a NEW 2GB Ipod Nano!

The Foo Logs - A Blog about Life, Sport, Movies, Technology and Just about Everything else.

Please come back next week as we would like the chance to feature all of you!

Also if you want to help save RLH 3 through the new "click throughs", we've apparently banked $1.85... will it pay in the long run? Of course it will! Every bit counts! If you wanna help, scroll down and click on the ad-link that says "Attract 1000s of Visitors" on the right-hand side... and that's it... (I had a look through the page you visit and there's no "malware" or "spyware" loading from it...) just visit that page and we supposedly get some coins. (Opens a new browser to avoid ending your "BlogMad" or "BlogExplosion" session...)

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

This blog is here to help promote a dream that an entire family shares... that dream is to rescue an old London Double-Decker bus.

RLH 3

Please, if you have a few minutes, take some time to find out more about this bus and the kooky dream by clicking here.

This bus is VERY special to myself and the whole family, and any help any person can lend us would be most gratefully accepted.

If you or someone you know might be interested, there's our pixel ad site, HelpCoverTheBus.Com and a PayPal donation button (see the upper-right hand side of the blog) and, of course, a 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!

We thank you for your support!

Please Note: We are also hoping for help from a public relations/marketing standpoint... If you might be able to assist OR know someone who might be willing to, please click here and read this entry...

Categories: Kooky Schemes - What's happening/Being Suggested, Any News?

Ways to gain the funds? Maybe... We'll let you know...

Dollar Sign

While surfing about and DESPERATELY trying to find a way to gain the $20,000.00 (USD) necessary to make our dream a reality, we've bumped into more than a few folks hoping to earn some coin from their online efforts... most notably, our friend at The Billion Dollar Webpage... and some brief correspondance with Kyle MacDonald of One Red Paperclip an... well... we're still desperately trying to figure out a couple of things...

#1: Who could/would help us reach the goal and how do we contact them?*

#2: Barring lottery wins, how can we reach the goal ourselves?

For #1 above, we've tried to promote traffic and the like... which has been great and growing!!!! And, although lately it's been subdued, we have literally begged for help with some success...

* - Many people have suggested folks we could try... but neglect to give us contact information... most of the time, our stuff is rejected as "spam" without being read or we're only one in several billion people trying to contact them and get lost in the shuffle...

For #2, so far, we have the Cafe Press shop for T-Shirts and shtuff, the Pixel Ad Site, HelpCoverTheBus.Com, and of course, the ever popular PayPal donation button (see the upper-right hand side of this blog)...

...but we're still looking...

Aside from BEGGING for help from someone in public relations or marketing to perhaps take this on as a "volunteer" thing (hoping someone in that field can help us sell ad space or at least, get the word out...)

...and this is the bit most other bloggers and web-admins are most interested in, I'm sure...

We're also trying programs of click-through ads and the like...

If you look down on the lower-right hand side of the blog (on the "side-bar",) you'll see these... the "text" ones say they'll pay just for folks clicking on them... the other "affiliate" buttons (Tiger Direct and Dell) only pay if someone makes a purchase through us...

I think people out there are interested in the "success rate" of the programs... so should/if anyone actually help us via these AND we receive any payments, aside from it going towards the dream, we'll let everyone who reads this know... was it a good thing to give up space and schill for others... or not...?

Time will tell... and so will we.

Addendum: Well, through the new "click throughs", we've apparently banked $0.50... will it pay in the long run??? If you wanna help, scroll down and click on the ad-link that says "Attract 1000s of Visitors" on the right-hand side... and that's it... (I had a look through the page you visit and there's no "malware" or "spyware" loading from it...) just visit that page and we supposedly get some coins.
