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 tiny banner 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...

Gina ???? woo woo and jumpin' jiminy crickets!!

'"Canadians have been so busy explaining to the Americans that we aren't British, and to the British that we aren't Americans that we haven't had time to become Canadians."'

Hilarious, yet somehow unfair...

'"Question everything."' Literally?

'"A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it."' Ooooof....eerily appropriate.....

'"We've all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually reproduce the entire works of Shakespeare. Now, thanks to the blogsphere, we know this is not true."' I'm getting close on my portion, besides....'"If an elderly but distinguished scientist says that something is possible he is almost certainly right, but if he says that it is impossible he is very probably wrong."'

I'm going to stop taking up space and just read....I hope....extremely enjoyable reading.....I'm such a liar....

Words to live by: '"Never kick a fresh turd on a hot day."'

Hey Blandly Urbane... I often think to a (possibly apocryphal) story about The Amusing Randi (James Randi) when he was growing up in Toronto... he spotted a big piece of graffiti that said, "Question Authority!" and he thoughtfully added to the bottom of it, in his own hand, "Why?"

...and this wasn't enjoyable? *sniff*
