A Car We Can Get Behind

A Car We Can Get Behind

Today on our way to our usual hike at a local open space preserve that will remain anonymous (well, unless you know where to look), we saw a car we can get behind.  Here’s what we saw:

The Official Car of PFPFP (license blurred, but if you see this car you won’t need the plate number)

Here are a couple of closeups to give you the idea:

Bin Laden Theme Park Rides

After posting yesterday’s article about the proposed new theme park in Abbottabad, Pakistan, it occurred to me that we needed a Twitter competition for bin Laden theme park rides.  Forthwith (because I’m lazy), here are the entries. There are enough good ideas that I’m not awarding a first prize.  Several entries didn’t include the hashtag #BinLadenThemeParkRides — I’ve included those as a separate screen capture.  Thanks to everyone who participated.


A Terrific Idea from Australia

Today I ran across a terrific idea from Australia.  Blogger Damon Young writing for abc.net.au penned an entry titled “Surviving the suburban purgatory of the school run.”  Mr. Young expounds on various aspects of dropping off and collecting children from school.  He begins with a pithy quote from Gwyneth Paltrow, followed by this summary from Mr. Young: “The thought of doing school pickup until she was 58, Paltrow joked, put paid to her plans for a third child.”

So far, so good.  But the best part comes in the comments.  This goodie by “Dino not to be confused with :” was grabbed by Margaret Smith (@DrMobs).  Here’s what Dino proposes:

“My suggestion is we lower the legal driving age to three. Kid’s are much more tech savvy these days and they could download an app or something.”

What a great idea!  Parents would no longer have to put up with being chauffeurs.  And we have to add Dino to our list of people we admire.

Lower the Driving Age to Three!
