No sign of Ben on the news today.

He is either stuck in a snow drift, or hopefully packing tankers and licking stamps  :D

Hi all,

Nope, day off today.  As it happens I do have a couple of hats but I rarely wear them as I tend not to feel the cold too badly.

cheers

Ben A.

In the interests of protecting our investments in Revolution Trains, I think it might be a good idea if those that know how to do these things, could start a crowd fund and buy @Ben A a hat. He's out in freezing temperatures delivering some speech about how cold it is and yet is endangering himself (and by association, our investments) by not wearing a hat. Perhpas it should be a NGF hat?
Thoughts?

I'm unclear, would this be a Kickstarter or a crowdfunder?

I keep seeing references to Ben being on TV, what's the deal? Is he a presenter on something?

Cheers

No hat required here on a balmy Saturday night at the local harbour restaurant  ;)

And not a bus stop in sight!  ;D

I reckon that the next time Ben is out with Revolution punters will be throwing hats at him. Like what happens with Tom Jones and the ladies, but only a bit like that.
