Have Councillors Damaged
Re-Election Opportunities?

Yesterday we told you about councillors Brodhead, Heron, Osborne and the mayor who all voted against a motion to allow the public to express their opinion on spending their own money and defeated it in a 4 to 3 vote. You can read the story

Here are the results of our poll and it looks like they have sure decreased their chances of re-election with their ‘we know better than you’ attitude.

Saturday Sessions April 1st Presents

This weeks Saturday Sessions show 666 presents guest -
Rott'n Dan Shinnan - As one of our areas most well known faces on festival and music room stages across Alberta, Canada,  and as far as Memphis, Dan is best known as the front man and harmonicist in funky blues groove band Boogie Patrol.

Dan has a natural knack as a high energy, electrifying entertainer with a stylistically recognizable voice and is considered amongst the best for his incredible harmonica and fronting skills. He has also received many invites from numerous other acts as a sideman and or frontman as well as much studio work.

Dan has worked diligently since the day I met him at the Blues on Whyte in the mid 2000's and his hard work has definitely payed off for himself and his band mates as they've gained high recognition from fans across Canada, numerous Blues societies, The Memphis Blues Challenge and The Maple Blues Awards just to name a few.

He also co-hosts a well established weekly open stage in Edmonton. I have featured Dan numerous times and we're always happy to have him back. -

The Philosophy Of Burma Shave

Burma Shave
For those who never saw any of the Burma Shave signs, here is a quick lesson in our history of the 1930's to the 1960's.

Before there were interstates, when everyone drove the old two lane roads, Burma Shave signs would be posted all over the countryside in farmers' fields. They were small red signs with white letters. Five signs, about 100 feet apart, each contained one line of a four line couplet ... and the obligatory fifth sign advertising Burma Shave, a popular shaving cream.

Around the curve
Beautiful car
Wasn't it?
Burma Shave

No matter the price
No matter how new
The best safety device
In the car is you
Burma Shave

A guy who drives
A car wide open
Is not thinkin'
He's just hopin'
Burma Shave

Stop Speeding, Win the Lottery: One Man's Idea to Make Safe Driving Fun

Stop Speeding
If speed limit signs aren't enough to slow down lead-footed drivers, what about the promise of cold, hard cash?

The motivation of a cash prize to the safest drivers is behind a California man's winning entry in The Fun Theory, an advertising contest sponsored by Volkswagen and advertising network DDB Worldwide Communications.

The idea? Put a speed monitor on a busy highway. But instead of simply ticketing the fastest drivers, the monitor would capture an image of the license plates of the drivers who obey the speed limit, then enter them into a lottery.
