It was not an "Apple" Christmas for us...

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY BELOW... This post is just me venting my spleen at "pop-culture consumerism".

TIME IS RUNNING SHORT FOR ONE OLD RED BUS! Sure, we're still holding a family dream about our own One Old Green Bus, but we're very concerned over the fate of Barton Transport #512. It's not far from Chicago and $2,200.00 and some love will save it from being scrapped. Please consider saving this wonderful bus. Click here for details...

Don't get me wrong... everyone had a fine holiday here at the homestead, but after having the PRAISES of a certain computer companies product sung as if the employees of said company can do no wrong, have nothing but brilliant ideas that never fail, and who's farts, apparently, issue no odour... I needed to see this... even those it's a bit old...

For the record, Macs are FINE... and Vista DOES suck... but realistically, as someone who's been in the field as a professional technician for almost fifteen years, realistically, I'd still prefer a PC over a Mac...

...now, to address those "products" from Apple...

  • Leopard sucks and is almost as buggy as Windows Vista.
  • iPhone is a beta-product that gives the original manufacturer WAY too much control in the aftermarket... ask anyone who now owns an "iBrick".
  • iPods are not BAD... but they are expensive for what they are... and I dislike the "non-changeable battery".
  • Upgrading an iBook or indeed, any Mac, is about as easy as neutering a wild Bengal tiger without anaesthetic.

Sorry, but I had to get that out of my system.

Wordless Wednesday: More Christmas-y Buses!

TIME IS RUNNING SHORT FOR ONE OLD RED BUS! Sure, we're still holding a family dream about our own One Old Green Bus, but we're very concerned over the fate of Barton Transport #512. It's not far from Chicago and $2,200.00 and some love will save it from being scrapped. Please consider saving this wonderful bus. Click here for details...

Last week, I did London Transport image of wintery scenes... with Christmas now behind us, here's some "Christmas Themed" bus images... You have NO idea how hard it is to find "Christmas Themed Bus Images"!!!!
:)

I did my best...

Wish this was hangin' from our tree... sadly, it wasn't.

Close-up of another ornament... not too shabby!

Wooden Bus - Made by elves, no doubt!

You'd think die-cast toys were "elven" as well, but no... many seem to be made by DOGS!!! Who knew Corgi's were so good with metal???

The Current Time in Toronto is...


One Old Green Bus

NEW! For the next few weeks, we need your help more than ever! Not only are we still hoping for our bus (see below) but are hoping that either we can find a buyer/owner for an old red bus that will be scrapped without a saviour OR we are hoping to raise the $5,000.00 it will take for us to be able to rescue this bus ourselves. We only have a few weeks so help is needed URGENTLY to save this wonderful old bus. Please click here for more information about this bus that's in grave danger of being scrapped...

-----------

This blog is (more or less) about the attempts to acquire a dusty, old, double-decker bus...restore, and refurbish her...for use as a camper/RV, and day tripper for fun, and travel

The bus is a Regent Low Height (to be exact, RLH 3) in Santa Rosa, California... To purchase and ship it to our home in Toronto, Ontario, Canada will require a minimum of $20k in US dollars to achieve...

As goofy as it may seem, owning this old, dusty, non-running, needs a tonne of work bus would be a dream come true for our family.

Need more info about this? Click here!
