It's called the "Bio-Bus" and it enjoyed its maiden voyage on Thursday, shuttling commuters on a 20-mile trip from Bath to Bristol in southwest England.

Over the past few years, stores have been opening earlier and earlier. It used to be that people would take a quick nap after Thanksgiving dinner in order to be up for when the stores opened at midnight. Then stores began opening late in the evening of Thanksgiving Day, then before the sun had even set. These days, forget about skipping dinner to go to work – many employees this year will be force

If you find any of my articles witty, enjoyable, provocative, infuriating, aggravating, insightful or educational--then my work here is half way done.
