Biggest Dog Lover in the World

Monday, June 16th, 2014


When Bogart is your dog, it is easy to be the biggest dog lover in the world. He is such a good dog all the time and always is looking for attention. He is with me 24/7 when I am on the road and being in London without him is hard at times.
One thing is for sure…he is certainly pampered while I am away, as today’s picture attests.

Father’s Day, London Style

Sunday, June 15th, 2014


What a wonderful way to spend Father’s Day evening, sharing stories of children with another dad, Richard Ward from the Kew Gardens area of London. Cheers to all the fathers out there!
Thank you to the entire Ward family for the sumptuous Father’s Day repast.

Never Too Far From Bluebird

Riding through the Sloane Square area of London, I came across this wonderful café…It made me realize I am never too far from the Blue Bird of Kindness.

Minimally Subliminal at the Very Least

All States/JP Ward Trucking in Twinsburg, Ohio has allowed the Blue Bird of Kindness to be parked in their lot while I am away. Nearly 18,000 vehicles per day are driving by the Blue Bird of Kindness. Drivers and occupants being treated to the greatest messages they will ever see…some without even realizing it.
Thank you to everyone at All States/JP Ward Trucking for the huge act of kindness!

International Rotary

Thursday, June 12th, 2014


I love the Rotary and all it stands for. Businessmen and women coming together to help the community and those in need.
On my ride through Kew, just south of London, I realized my rear tire was going flat. Climbing off the Kindness Bicycle I heard a voice, “Are you part of the Rotary?” Richard Ward belonged to that voice and after a brief conversation I was invited for tea to meet another Rotarian, Dean, who owns the Maids of Honour tea room and Newans Bed & Breakfast.
In the hour or so of sharing stories, I was invited, if need be, to stay in a spare room at both of their homes. This is what members of the Rotary are known for.

Pride Runs Deep

Robert Wells from London, England is a very proud World War II Veteran. He “would love to see more kindness in the world…in his lifetime!”
This proud Brit, joined  the British Armed Forces at age fourteen. He and I met while attending an outdoor children’s concert. He had loads of history to share. I love talking with Veterans as I travel. The great stories they share is something all of us should experience first-hand.

An Angel to the Homeless

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014


Ada from El Salvador, with hurting knees and all, walks several blocks to pick up sandwiches from a local store at the end of every day to feed to the homeless of London.
