Looks like I’m going to hit 100,000 miles before the four year mark. The fourth anniversary of MINIBee’s adoption is March 26, 2009 and I’m guessing I’ll reach 100K before the end of February. So far so great!

Carol of the MINIs

Hark! how the wheels, making some squeals
All seem to say, fun comes your way
MINIs are here, bringing good cheer
To young and old, meek and the bold

Burble and Whine, it sounds so fine
With joyful ring, while throttling
One seems to hear, sounds of good cheer
From ev’rywhere, filling the air

Oh how they round, corners in town
Over hill and dale, on Dragon’s tails
Quickly they roar, never to bore
Sounds of good cheer, Coopers are here
MINI, MINI, MINI, MINI Christmas
MINI, MINI, MINI, MINI Christmas

Twisting they go, never too slow
Their joyful tone, bringing us home

Burble and Whine
Burble and Whine
Burble and Whine
It sounds so fine

Hark! how the wheels, making some squeals
All seem to say, fun comes your way
MINIs are here, bringing good cheer
To young and old, meek and the bold

Burble and Whine, it sounds so fine
With joyful ring, while throttling
One seems to hear, sounds of good cheer
From ev’rywhere, filling the air

Oh how they round, corners in town
Over hill and dale, on Dragon’s tails
MINI, MINI, MINI, MINI Christmas
MINI, MINI, MINI, MINI Christmas

Twisting they go, never too slow
Their joyful tone, bringing us home

Burble and Whine
Burble and Whine
Burble and Whine
It sounds so fine

Oh how they round, corners in town
Over hill and dale, on Dragon’s tails
MINI, MINI, MINI, MINI Christmas
MINI, MINI, MINI, MINI Christmas

Burble and Whine
Burble and Whine
Burble and Whine
It sounds so fine

Burble and Whine
Burble and Whine
Burble and Whine
It sounds so fine

MINIBee’s Motoring Merchandise is open for business!

Posted in General, MINI Collectibles, MINI Swag with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 2, 2009 by minibee62

Well, I finally did it! After a couple of years dabbling in MINI swag distribution and being a vendor at two major events, I decided to make MINIBee’s Motoring Merchandise legitimate and opened an online store. There you can find my new product, the Build-a-Badge™ magnetic badge holder, MINI lanyards, cookie cutters, glassware, 100,000 and 50,00o-mile metal grille badges and matching lapel pins, Go Pro HERO Wide Motorsports cameras at a deep discount and much, much more.

The store also has direct links to my Cafepress store which features the famous “Owner’s Badge” designs by COOPERattion in almost all the models and color combinations (new ones are added from time to time). You’ll find lots of other cool MINI T-shirts, coffee mugs, holiday ornaments, hoodies, etc…in there so check it out.
