The Bet
Richard Kepperman was on top of his game until blowing the whistle on his high powered Atlanta accounting firm. Black balled from the financial arena, on the verge of bankruptcy, he returns to his roots in coastal Georgia to be near his aging grandfather, Clayton. Frustrated and underemployed, he is an easy mark when approached by a stranger who offers to bet ten million dollars that he can capture Richard within a span of thirty days. In return, Richard will be required to risk all that he holds dear. Given a twenty four hour head start, Richard embarks on an odyssey that will forever change the way he views love, life, friendship and the power of money. On the run, he encounters forces that threaten to do irreparable damage to his sanity and rip his family to shreds. Fighting to stay alive, Richard uncovers the startling truth about the deaths of his parents and learns that the real power behind the stranger is a man who harbors a sixty year old grudge against Clayton and is willing to commit unspeakable atrocities to satisfy his desire for revenge.

think i'm going for a walk now i feel a little unsteady i don't want nobody to follow me 'cept maybe you i could make you happy you know if you weren't already i could do a lot of things and i do tell you the truth i prefer the worst of you too bad you had to have a better half she's not really my type but i think you two are forever and i hate to say it but you're perfect together so fuck you and your untouchable face and fuck you for existing in the first place and who am i that i should be vying for your touch and who am i i bet you can't even tell me that much two-thirty in the morning and my gas tank will be empty soon neon sign on the horizon rubbing elbows with the moon a safe haven of sleepless where the deep fryer's always on radio is counting down the top 20 country songs and out on the porch the fly strip is waving like a flag in the wind y'know, i don't look forward to seeing you again soon you'll look like a photograph of yourself taken from far far away and i won't know what to do and i won't know what to say except fuck you... i see you and i'm so perplexed what was i thinking what will i think of next where can i hide in the back room there's a lamp that hangs over the pool table and when the fan is on it swings gently side to side there's a changing constellation of balls as we are playing i see orion and say nothing the only thing i can think of saying is fuck you... (Ani DiFranco, "Untouchable Face")

At the terminus.
A personal favourite of mine and 'Berresfordsmotors' in the wonderful South Wales based Brewer's fleet was NKG 176M, their last new AEC Reliance bus.The picture was taken at a valley head terminus (I'll have to rely on someone more local to give the exact detail) shortly before the Willowbrook bodied saloon and all it's brethren were re-painted into a less classy scheme. By this point in time, it had lost it's decorative brushed aluminium bumper strip, and even had the fibreglass where it once attached removed too. IMHO, if Willowbrook's build quality had been better, this would represent perfection in a single decker bus! A question now. I'd always taken this bus to follow in the Brewer's tradition of using AEC's smaller engines for service buses, making this a 6MU (mediumweight) with 505 engine. BLOTW lists it as a 6U (heavyweight) which would have been 760 powered. Anyone know for sure?

Groucho Marx Collection: You Bet Your Life
Groucho Marx's quick wit and rapid one-liners-- along with his distinctive moustache, eyebrows, and ever-present cigar--made him one of the most famous, iconic comedians of all time! Groucho, Harpo, Chico, Gummo, and Zeppo-- collectively known as the Marx Brothers-- made some of the most popular comedies in American cinema including The Coconuts, Duck Soup, and A Night at the Opera.
In 1947 Groucho began a radio show called You Bet Your Life, which spawned the TV series three years later. Groucho appeared, as himself, as emcee and star. The show's premise was simple: contestants sought to win up to $10,000 by correctly answering a sequence of four questions. If they unwittingly said a "secret word" they would win $100 bonus, delivered by a papier-mache duck lowered from above. The best part of the show was the humor and banter Groucho ad-libbed with his contestants. You Bet Your Life ran for 11 years, making it one of the longest running shows in the history of television!
