I'm sitting here watching Nova on PBS and after it's done here's a PBS promo commercial with Norm driving a school bus. Yup - he's wearing his plaid flannel bus driving uniform too.:D

I can't access YouTube from where I am. What kind of show is this?

Last weekend I was trying to convince my local Woodcraft manager to book some David Marks classes. We got to talking about "celebrity" bookings. He said it's $20K to book a Norm appearance. And that's for two hours.

Guys around here usually drive busses after they've been retired or fired. Rather a Noval idea...

Good ad! Lot's of familiar faces...and feathers...in that one!

Yeah, I watched the ad last night. Sure, it was cool to see Norm, but Big Bird was the big deal! ;)

Got a good laugh out of the last part:

"Life is a journey, Come, Explore!"

More like sit on your rump and don't take the journey.

I wanted to see Norm fix the Mars rover with a couple of brads, and a nice, sharp corner chisel.
