 Guy Lombardo's Tempo VII Hydroplane  ?


Guy Lombardo's multiple-award-winning Tempo VII hydroplane, built in 1955 and powered by an Allison aircraft engine, has been owned by the City of London since 1983 when it was donated to the City by the late Colonel Tom Lawson.

It is currently on display at London's Jet Aircraft Museum along with the Miss Supertest III hydroplane, immediately northwest of the London International Airport. It is open Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm.

Contact London's heritage planner Don Menard (dmenardATlondon.ca) if you or your organization are interested in displaying the Tempo VII in a public setting for a special short-term event.


LOMBARDO TRIVIA: London-born-and-raised bandleader Guy Lombardo (June 19, 1902- Nov. 5, 1977) never travelled across the bridge named in his honour in London, Ontario, since the bridge never officially opened until Nov. 16, 1978, more than a year after his death.

Guy Lombardo (1902-1977) with his younger sister, Rosemarie Lombardo (1925-2011) in the 1940s. Guy and his brothers in the orchestra actually named their sister Rosemarie, who was born 23 years after Guy.

    When the moon hits your eye like a bigga pizza pie ...

    Earthquake Time? Tonight, our moon will be 26,000 km closer to the Earth than usual. As such, it will appear up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter.

    NASA says the best time to see the spectacle is 11:35 pm ET tonight (May 5). It’s called a "supermoon" and they occur once every 14 months.

    Supermoons are associated with heightened earthquake activity due to the significant gravitational pull of the moon which creates our tides.

    Nesting Birds of Prey and Canada Geese at historic Labatt Park


    World-renowned dental expert opposes water fluoridation

    FACT: Dr. Hardy Limeback, BSc PhD DDS, the head of preventive dentistry at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Dentistry and Canada's leading authority on preventive dentistry and water fluoridation, is vigorously opposed to water fluoridation.

    FACT: Dr. Graham Pollett, the Middlesex-London Medical Officer of Health, supports water fluoridation but is not an expert in the field of water fluoridation nor preventive dentistry.

    * 50 Reasons to Oppose Fluoridation (with many scientific references cited at the bottom of the article)

    If the majority of London city council can't see the light on this issue, at the very least Londoners deserve a ballot question pursuant to the Fluoridation Act since it's been 46 years since the last one in 1966 ~ when the majority of Londoners alive today were either not of voting age or not born yet.

  • WILDLIFE AT HISTORIC LABATT MEMORIAL PARK

    Several hawks, two Canada Geese and one gosling have made Labatt Park their home



    While attending a pre-season exhibition doubleheader of the London Majors Baseball Club yesterday afternoon (Apr. 29) against the Hamilton Cardinals, I noticed there's several hawks ~ believed to be Ospreys ~ building nests atop light standards at Labatt Park, as well as two Canada Geese with a gosling nesting in a flower bed near the first-baseline concession stand.

    UPDATE, MAY 1: After hatching one gosling, the mother and father goose appear to have abandoned the original nest with five remaining goose eggs in it.

    According to park staff, the goose family of three have moved to the other side of Labatt Park, in the parking lot behind the third-baseline. But the small yellow gosling was nowhere to be found on the afternoon of May 1.

    PROTECTIVE FATHER GOOSE: One of the City workers at the park was attacked by the male goose and sprained his ankle during the incident, leading to the installation of temporary metal fencing near their office-tool shed. Workplace health and safety, indeed.


    The two species of birds seem well-aware of each other's presence, with the hawks often swirling overhead in search of prey.


    Visitors to the park are well-advised to keep a safe distance from the geese as the male is extremely protective of the nesting female and yellow gosling.

    He'll attack with incredible fury if anyone ventures too close.

    This is the first time during all my years of attending ball games at the park that I've seen these two species of birds nesting there.

    An added attraction to the game on the field.


    NEXT PRE-SEASON EXHIBITION GAME: London Majors vs. Michigan Jet Box at Labatt Park on Sunday, May 6 (doubleheader) at 1 pm.

    $3 admission at the front gates.

    The concession stand behind the third-baseline will be open.

    * Water fluoridation is UNSAFE since it accumulates in our organs; you can
    control the "concentration" in our water but not the "dose" because people of
    different body sizes drink varying amounts of water daily.

    * Water fluoridation is UNNECESSARY. Today, even poor people have access to
    fluoridated toothpaste and a toothbrush, use both and then spit it out as
    directed; fluoride only prevents caries via topical application. Drinking the
    stuff is nuts.

    * Water fluoridation is UNETHICAL since the mass-medication of citizens via
    our public drinking water precludes informed consent.

    Google "50 Reasons to Oppose Fluoridation" to see scores of referenced
    studies at the end of the lengthy article.

    The Nazi crap is a red herring. Thanks Orser, you clown.

    Regarding the dumb-as-dirt Nazi argument (a complete red-herring and
    lousy strategy) about fluoride, there's two ways to try and get things done at
    London city hall when you're a sitting member of city council.

    Orser's way (failure) or the smart way of getting the latest science and studies
    from world-renowned experts Dr. Hardy Limeback and Dr. Paul Connett to
    your council colleagues, as well as personal persuasion.

    The latter has a significant chance of success while the former guarantees
    failure.

    Anyone who suggests Mr. Orser is an effective council member and knows
    what he is doing, is as thick as a brick.
