Merry Christmas from the BRBTV News Blog

Seasons greetings, and all that jazz. What's better, at Christmastime, than a couple photos of the car from the "Carnival of Thrills" two-part episode of "The Dukes of Hazzard"? Nothing, we say! It's just the perfect accompaniment to holiday cheer ...

The young man behind the wheel here is Lance, son of Mr. Paul Harrington of the Canadian Dukes of Hazzard Fan Club and organizer of the annual Hair Dare Dukes Days benefit for cancer research. The sweet-mannered and handsome Lance can often be seen at "Dukes" events with Dad (and often, as you can see, patiently laughing while his "Dukes"-happy parental unit is snapping pictures).

("Go, Bo Duke, go! You can be the star of the show!" Oooops, er, sorry) The car is a replica, by the way, and kids, don't try this trick at home. (Whatever this particular trick is -- we think it's basically just driving, which any "Dukes" fan knows how to do anyway.)

Thanks very much to Paul for sending these two shots along, and make sure you keep an eye on his Hair Dare event, scheduled for August 22-24 in Ruscom Station, Ontario, Canada. BRB is confirmed for the show -- to sign copies of "Them Dukes! Them Dukes!" -- and Byron (Coy Duke) Cherry and Don Pedro (Sheriff Little) Colley are planning the trip again, too. It promises to be another wildly fun and safe "Dukes" event.

BRBTV News Blog Blip: If BRB is going to be immersed in an all-day Yahtzee marathon tomorrow with her 11-year-old niece Veronica (named for the Archie Comics character, don't ya know), then she better just post this last little tidbit today, while she's wishing y'all a wonderful, happy and peaceful Christmas ... How could the town of Dallas not be thrilled to pieces to remind folks of J.R. Ewing and the Southfork clan? Evidently, it's all about image. Read on, in this story in the Chicago Tribune.
