Unless you’re in BC, you or your kids are back to school today. If you don’t have kids, well school zones will be a big concern for you this morning. Remember that from 730-430 every weekday the speed limit will be 30km/hr in school zones.
Now RCMP are hoping we get the message a little quicker than we did last year after nearly 900 school zone violations were handed out in September alone. I am throwing out the challenge that we reduce that to half (which is still unacceptable but, baby steps) Also have a look at cross walks and busses.
Have a wonderful day back to school! Also, we are having a little contest this week for parents who pack awesome lunches… you could win God Save the Queen tickets. Details on the air with Shawna (in for Kevin this week) and Cliff
1. Patio Party tonight @ the Shark Club. Someone will win a hot tub from Beachcomber plus other sick prizes from S3 and Shark Club
2. BE CAREFUL enjoying the outdoors. Wildfire hazard is VERY high and the last thing you want is to have uncle jim bent over some wood pouring jet fuel trying to get things started
3. We have some Monster Truck tickets to give away this morning (if you can find something to read in your monster truck voice)
4. Also, a gift card to Tommy Guns with ‘Tough Guy Trivia’
5. If you don’t have this number you can’t really win squat, ever, so, 780 539 9797
Have a wonderful, safe long weekend. School Zones are back in effect starting Tuesday (over 500 tickets were handed out last year in the first two weeks- let’s try and not do that again)
We’re talking the real thing here… those guitar riffs that capture your heart and make you loyal to a band or a song without a second thought.
BBC 2 recently did a massive poll asking what the greatest guitar riffs of all time were… the winner? Led Zeppelin. Page was pretty stoked to win the title saying:
“I wanted a riff that really moved, that people would really get, and would bring a smile to their faces, but when I played it with the band, it really went into overdrive … there was this intent to have this riff and the movement of it, so it was menacing as well as quite sort of caressing.”
Here is the rest of the list…love #2

Yes it looks like Tim Horton’s and Burger King are going to merge, making it the third biggest fast food franchise in the world. Don’t worry, it looks like Burger King will be moving to Canada (tax saving purposes)
Have you tried the new dark roast at Tims? It’s really good. So is this promo commercial:

I found it hilarious to find out that the first thing ever sold on EBay was a broken laser pointer… sold in 1995 to a guy who collected broken laser pointers, lol. He bought it for 1995.
Which got me thinking about what the first thing I bought on the internet… I’m pretty sure it was a way too expensive hockey picture, or shirt I couldn’t find in Canada. I actually haven’t had any problems ordering things online… even tho there are some that swear they never would.
What’s the first thing you bought on the internet? Have you had any problems? We’d love to hear them: 780 539 9797
Also, we are giving away Sonic Boom tickets this morning… if you hear the back to school bell at any point, call us, if you’re #7 consider them yours.

Also, because the season is winding down and back to school schedules start September 2nd, Kevin and I want to see you enjoy one last hurrah in Edmonton, at Sonic Boom.
