Chinatown Bus- Fung Wah!

Dear Savvy Reader,

Do you like it when I call you savvy? Guess what? This weekend I went to the big city. I had some private matters to attend to. How did I get there? On the Chinatown bus. Fung Wah! I like to say it like I'm making a karate chop.

Fung Wah means magnificent wind, but Fung Wah buses aren't magnificent. In fact, if you are indeed savvy, you will avoid this line. Their safety record is poor. I must admit I made a grave mistake in choosing them.

My voyage began happily enough.

But part way there-- whether due to the swaying of the bus, the smell of fried food mingled with air freshner, or the fabric pattern of the seat covers-- I grew ill and lost my cookies in the red plastic bags they so kindly provide.

Yet, I am grateful to be alive. As you have seen from the link above, not everyone involved with them is.

And so this is a happy sad happy entry.

Wishing you safe travels,
I remain,
your loyal friend,

Well sports fans, it's baseball season, and this week I went to the game. My favrit thing about a baseball game is the watery beer and peanuts. What I like best is throwing my shells all over the place. Harriet gets all uptight about this. She likes Cracker Jacks because they're less messy. And there's a surprise inside.

My good friends over at WEEI, where I sometimes freelance as a sports authority, invited me up to the booth to get out of the heat and have some Dunkin Donuts. The view in the booth is pretty good.

It helps a small dog like me to get up above the fray.

Wishing you some time above the fray,
I remain, your good sport,
and loyal friend,

Hello savvy readers,

It's your savvy dog here, ready to pass along some savvy info. On money angels! Did you know that they exist? Well, they do.

Do you like chain mail? Harriet HATES it. Don't get her started on that. Normally I don't like it either, but this one works!

Here is the content of the email:

"Money Angel
This is a money angel Pass it to 4 of your good friends, or family and be rich in 4 Days.
Pass it to 12 of your good friends or family and be rich in 2 Days...
I am not joking. You will find an unexpected windfall. If you delete it, you will never know!

I am passing it on to all of my good friends in one day so I calculate that I will be rich almost immediately after sending it.

I advise you to send it on to your friends and family even sooner so you can be rich yesterday.

Your pre-rich friend and financial advisor,

Let's Go Fly a Kite

Hello dear readers,

Did you have a nice weekend? I am happy to report that I did. In fact, I got on splendidly with the weasels this weekend and have discovered that we have something in common. What is that?

We all like flying kites.

Perhaps it's our small size that makes us like launching things into the air and watching them fly around high in the sky-- like an extension of our selves that's really tall. I made a video to show you.

Yours in flight,
