How to use bus in a sentence?

  1. Ray Duncan:

    There was this fad going around for 10 or 15 years around higher alcohol, and we were never able to jump on that bus because by the time it was clear that was the direction that was getting the high scores, we had five years of inventory. So we stuck to our guns, now people are making more moderate wines, and we’re getting credit for making wines of style and personality and grace. We never stopped doing that. As a long-term product cycle, that’s a very unique thing. There’s so much urgency in our world today. That doesn’t exist in what we do. It’s very important to me to guard that, and to not get in a hurry and follow what everyone else is doing. Our customers like what we do. The only thing we’re trying to do is get better at what we’re really good at.

  2. Inger Stojberg:

    It can simply be dangerous for all of us if the bus driver doesn't eat or drink during a whole day, and you don't perform at nearly the same level at the factory or the hospital if you don't eat or drink during the bright hours of the day for a full month.

  3. Brett Simon:

    We evaluate the dog for being sound around people, other dogs, noises, cars, and riding in the bus, we take them to the store and walk them around. If they keep progressing through that, then they spend the next three to four months getting their basic formal obedience done.

  4. Larry Shannon Hargrove:

    Donald Trump is gon na tear this country apart, donald Trump doesn't know how to govern... Donald Trump's Donald Trump. Donald Trump tries to throw Barack Obama under the bus every chance Barack Obama gets.

  5. Raja Gurung:

    I am hoping to get on a bus, any bus heading out of Kathmandu. I am too scared to be staying in Kathmandu, the house near my rented apartment collapsed. It was horrible. I have not gone indoors in many days. I would rather leave than a live a life of fear in Kathmandu.
