Happy Labor Day Weekend!
I pulled up to a Quick Trip station today to fill up my gas tank as I would need it as I am having to work over the Labor
Day weekend much to my dismay! The good thing about that I reminded myself was the fact that at least I wouldn't
have to deal with Atlanta traffic while I was out working all over the city!
5:57 pm edt
Then I met Naomi! She saw my truck
covered in BUMP IT UP! magnets and asked me what it meant. Of course I was off and running thentelling her about all we hope
for with TBE! I gave her a magnet and she put it on her car and promised to spread the word.
Then I asked about
her only to find out she had been laid off from her job , but was going to be starting another soon. ONLY right now "things
were tight. REALLY TIGHT!" Haven't we all been in this situation at sometime in our lives.
As I finished
our conversation and was about to leave I told her to hold on just a moment. I put a couple of gift cards from Starbucks in
an envelope because everyone needs a treat now and then and added some momey to help with the weekend. Only I told her
not to open it until I left. I love "hit and runs."
There are lots of Naomi's out there, but today
there is one less at least for the weekend! As I drove away I thought to myself, " I am thankful I have I have the opportunity
TO WORK this weekend and Monday!
Happy Labor Day Naomi and all you BUMPERS! BUMP IT UP!

BUMP IT UP!
Hi Everyone! Sorry it's been a little while since the last blog! I will be posting alot more frequently as things pick
up in the fall. Right now I am trying to lay the groundwork for the experiment itself. The launch for Atlanta will be taking
place in early fall. After speaking with people in the media several who are BUMPERS told me we would get our best publicity
as we approach the one year prior to The Bump Experiment. So get ready for late Sept and early October as we launch here in
Atlanta and then beyond!
8:11 pm edt
I spent about two hours today in a local shopping center parking lot. You would
not believe the crowd the BUMPMOBILE drew. It really catches peoples attention when your truck is COVERED with bright orange
magnets! It's amazing how many people just immediately put the magnets on their cars after hereing about our experiment!
I am presently trying to catch up on hundreds of emails so please be patient! I'm still shipping magnets and wristbands
all over the nation as well as the world. Thank you Ireland and Japan for your interest.
Currently i am working
on The Bump Foundation Inc website. look for it to debute in the next FEW weeks or sooner! Hope you will join as it will help
advance and fund the experiment.
Plz continue to spread the 2word to all you know. Remember we need MILLIONS on
board November 2 - 8, 2009! As always THANKS for your support! Until next time.....
