~ Happy Birthday to Bob Young today ~

Happy Birthday to the one and only, the Great, Duke of Bob. :thup: :thup: :smiley: :rockin:

Happy Belated Birthday Mr Young. :slight_smile:

Sad but over at RTH they are booing Bob Young's birthday. How utterly sad

.

Happy birthday, Bob. Go Argos :slight_smile:

:lol:

Then again, it's nothing new for the Hamilton government, I mean they've always been anti-business and growth.

Happy Birthday indeed. I think we all want a Grey Cup win for our birthday's lol. Even better, a unanamous vote next week in Ivor Wynne's favor.

AKT: After I read what you posted I went over to RTH to see how they were booing Bob Young's birthday.
All I saw was a post wishing Bob a Happy Birthday. Checked several blogs and the comments but saw nothing that booed his birthday. Maybe I missed it.

Regardless....... Happy Birthday Bob. :smiley:

Check some of the comments that have been hidden.

Best wishes for the most awesome birthday ever!

Picat, the reason the post is hidden is because many at the RTH gave the post a thumbs down.
One comment I remember was everyone should wish Bob a happy birthday on the ticat site and not the RTH.
What a bunch of losers.

That was Earl. I don't think he's a wiener.

ooops........for some reason I mis-read 19 and thought it said 18 (truth be known, I can blame myself for that because I've had a prescription for my first ever pair of glasses for a month ........perhaps I need to it up and get the darn thing filled now ?) :lol:

Anyways, the end result is you get to have a few beers 2 days in a row ! lol

Cheers !

That link is hilarious! I love these flashbacks from our youth. Notice the Romper Room and other flashback links to the right of the link. :slight_smile:

On what other forum, would you find a link like this! Priceless and thanks for the chuckle! I just finished listening to Disco Duck after watching that one. lmao

Happy Birthday Bob I hope your caretaker for a very long time. :thup: :thup:

PiCat:

Thanks...but I'll pass. This has been only the second time I have been on the site. Not for me.

Well, I was one saying that birthday wishes are more appropriate here rather than RTH. Look, the RTH site is a site where, as we know, has a fairly high percentage of people who don't like Bob so while a birthday wish there is fine in my books, it will get voted down and greyed out in all probability and I think Bob doesn't deserve that so why not just save some fingers from keystroking there and do it here where it will be appreciated. That's all I was trying to say. But by all means people can do what they want, I try and not tell anyone what they should and shouldn't be doing unless it's something really bad.

And thanks Captain for saying I'm not a weiner! :thup: Although I do like weiners I will say, to eat that is, with mustard on top. :wink:

Happy birthday to the best owner of a professional sports franchise in any city's history.

Thanks for reviving the roar and making me proud to be a Tiger-Cat fan again. It was the team of my youth and hopefully will be the team of my second childhood (which we will all reach eventually :wink: ).

All the best from Mike, (with the seldom used 3 thumbs up). :thup: :thup: :thup:

Happy Birthday Bob.

Well, this is a kind of neat announcement that happened on Bob's birthday: 8)

Lulu Helps Provide Education for Fallen NYPD, NYFD Children

New calendar raises funds to cover educational expenses for families of police officers and firefighters lost in the line of duty

RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/

-- The Silver Shield Foundation, 501 (c) 3 public charity, has a lofty goal: Provide college tuition, tutoring, and counseling services to as many families and children of fallen police officers and firefighters from the New York tri-state area (NY, NJ & CT) as possible. And as college applications continue to rise – up 28% at some schools in 2010 according to USA Today – the organization, founded by late Yankees franchise owner George Steinbrenner, is opening fundraising opportunities to the general public for the first time.

In search of a fundraising solution, Joe DeBono, a volunteer for the Silver Shield Foundation, and president of MBA Corps, turned to Lulu, the leader in open publishing. Working with the company, Silver Shield was able to create a full-color calendar of firehouse and K-9 unit dogs. The custom calendar left space for sponsoring companies' logos and buyers could even vote on which of their favorite dogs would appear in the calendar before it was published. In less than one week, over 25,000 people voted online.

"It was amazing to see so many people honoring the memory of these police officers and firefighters by helping to further their children's education," said DeBono. "Lulu made the project possible through its print on demand capability – there was no capital outlay required to launch and they provided a collaborative, literally, one-stop shop, where we could tweak our calendar as much as we needed to, which just made sense. We are using Lulu for marketing distribution, order fulfillment and payment collection. Lulu truly is the best turn-key solution for non-profits that are cash poor and content rich."

"Stories like this never get old," said Bob Young, Lulu's Founder and Chief Executive. "Lulu was started to help a new generation of authors and publishers profit by enabling them to bring their remarkable works to their customers more easily than ever before and I am constantly amazed to see how authors and organizations like Silver Shield use our services to better the world."

Lulu offers an array of products including photo books, mini books and calendars with customizable date cells that provide a range of unique fundraising possibilities. To learn more or get started, visit http://www.lulu.com/publish.
