An Email I Just Sent to Thomasandfriends Period Commercial

Dear Thomas and Friends:

My almost-four-year-old daughter is a great enthusiast of the Thomas series and enjoys many of the games and activities on the Thomasandfriends web site. Today we were reading the various character gallery entries in the "Engines" section of the site, and I found a couple of errors that I thought should be brought to your attention. Both are in the entry for Lady Hatt.

First, it refers to Lady Hatt as a "kind and gentile woman." While I'm sure that description is accurate in all its particulars, I have a strong hunch it was supposed to read "kind and gentle woman."

Second, it says that Lady Hatt is wont to scold the engines if they behave properly. If that is true, it must be very confusing for the engines and a great hindrance to their moral development. Surely the gentle gentile lady only scolds them if they behave improperly.

Thank you for providing countless hours of learning and entertainment for my child and my thanks to your webmaster for inadvertently providing me with a good laugh.

Best regards,

Papa Dog

Do you suppose they meant genteel? Though if you have seen Lady Fatt, you would know she is not genteel. Nor dainty. But Gentile? fo sho.

Papa Dog,

If you are still actively blogging, I believe you may be interested in a current project I’m helping with. My name is Lauren, I’m an intern with Rev currently working on a social media program involving parenting blogs and I believe this may be of some interest to you and your readers. My group is coordinating a community-outreach effort for the REV Spokesperson Contest. This contest is aimed towards mothers, but I feel that your audience would be interested in knowing about this opportunity. The idea is simple: we’re looking for healthy, active moms who can tell their story, give advice and empower moms who aspire to “do it all” without neglecting themselves.

REV. product features 3 varieties of Epsom Salt (for Moms, for Athletes, and for Families), but rev-life.com is an online community centered on health, going green, and finding the energy to get it all done! For our members, it offers blogging, social networking, and tools, such as calendars and photo-sharing.

We'd love to do a link-exchange, but right now we're in the process of setting up our blog-roll.

In addition to $1,000.00 cash and a 6-month supply of REV., there are quite a few perks and although only 5 moms throughout the U.S. will receive the Spokesperson honor, everyone who enters will be contributing to an online community that has been created to support, inspire and equip them with resources.

Can you reply and let me know if that sparks your interest and if you would be willing to post information or otherwise help us spread the message? We can offer 50, 100, 150 word write-ups if you are willing to tell your community about us.

Check out this link for more information http://www.rev-life.com/

Please let me know if you have any questions.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Rev Outreach
