You Helped Us Raise Lots of Money

The diamond party bus was the perfect party bus for us. I work for a animal shelter and every year we have a huge Christmas party to raise money for homeless animals and for the shelter itself. This job is not just a job for me it is my entire life. I have always known that I wanted to help homeless animals find loving homes. When I was little I rescued my first cat. Someone had dumped a little kitten on the side of the road and somehow it came to my yard, which was pretty far from the highway. I knew from that day on it was my calling to save all of the animals I could. Continue Reading →

Limo Rental for Prom Night

My daughter is going to be going to prom soon, and I want it to be an extra special experience for her. I know that she is going to have a great time, but we have been planning, and trying to make everything turn out great. I know that there are still some hurdles in the planning but I just went to the website for Paradise Limo in Toronto to start the process of renting a limo for prom night. Continue Reading →

We’re Using a Bus to Keep Our Kids Alive and Happy

Wanting a way to keep our kids safe when they came home for homecoming, my wife suggested that we use to get a party bus for the kids and their friends. All of them are in their twenties. Homecoming is when kids come home once per year in small towns to attend a local football game, see friends and spend time with family. It has always been a big deal here in the South. And with that, it’s important for parents to remind their adult children to not drink and drive. We figured out how to take it out of the equation completely.

Each of us in our small town came name someone’s child who came home for homecoming and then promptly shortened their life by not heeding what they’ve learned all their life about not drinking and driving. Some think that because we’re surrounded by country roads, there’s less traffic, and therefore, safer. But there is more to it than that. First, most of our road have been dug out between mountains. So, they’re very windy, curvy and steep. Not only that, too many other people think that they’re safer because there’s less traffic on them, and as a result, they speed by going 20 or more miles over the speed limit all the time. We aim to keep our own children from getting into a wreck with the help of a sober driver and an over-sized vehicle that will help to keep them from becoming a statistic.

My wife and I originally told the kids about the bus before they came home, and they both gave our a whoop of glee. But we were also very careful to remember to tell them that this is for their own safety and well being. We wanted them to know that so that they can pass on the same message to their kids one day.

A Vehicle Large Enough for All of Us

When you want the most comfortable transportation available, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? For me, I think of limos. I have been in a few for various reasons, mostly weddings, and there is just nothing that can compare to that. So, when you want the most comfortable ride possible but you need it for over 30 people, what options do you have other than a limo? That was my dilemma, so I looked at to see what the largest capacity was for one of the limos in their fleet.

I felt that if needed, we could always rent two and just divvy up the group. Taking two vehicles is still better than taking eight or nine. However, once I got to the limo site, I was happy to see that their largest vehicle would hold 50 people. I didn’t need one quite that big, but it was nice to know for future reference.

Partying Once More for Old Times Sake

I get a lot of pop up ads on my phone when I’m using the browser because I don’t have any kind of ad blocking software installed. I should probably do something about that one day, but I’m too lazy to look into it. I usually just close the ads and continue doing whatever it is that I’m doing. Most recently, I received a “click here” pop up from a company that rents out party buses to people. The pop up showed a huge bus with lights and people who looked like they were having fun. I wanted to continue on the website that I was reading, so I closed the ad.

Days later, while I was using the browser again, I got the same ad, and I closed it. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but that ad would keep coming back, and eventually become useful to me. I got a call from some old friends who were in town for the week and wanted to hang out with me. We used to have some good fun back in our college day, but when we went our separate ways, everything changed and we all turned into more mellow people.

The party bus ad that kept popping up gave me an idea. I rented a bus so that my friends and I could party once more like we did in the old days. We couldn’t drink as much as we used to, but we could still have the time of our lives. We went to all of our old hang out spots and enjoyed things like everything had been the same as it always was. Out of all of us, I’ve lost the least amount of hair and gained the least pounds, although I’m still pretty big compared to my former self.
