September

With Labor Day on the immediate horizon...yes the Dog Days of Summer are done, with the post summer reality setting in...starting to make itself felt. 

Towards the end of the month Strada will celebrate its 5th anniversary, anyone that would have told us that what started out as a fun project would endure for 5 years...you know the answer. Last year we shared our thoughts on our 4th anniversary...here. What will we do this year? No idea yet...working on it...

"Realities" that caught our attention during the summer...

 

  • Social Media has lost that "special feeling".
  • Financial markets will continue their erratic (choppy) behavior?
  • Auto sales in Canada...will remain conservative to the end of the year.
  • Folks will seek to increase their positive cash flow, while curbing lines of credit.
  • Uncertainty will persist...upholding a sense of unease for many.
  • The leadership vacuum will persist.
  • More than ever you need to be your own editor.
  • Have we finally exported our "middle class".
  • Can "Boomers" truly retire like their parent did a generation before? 

What do you think?

Back Soon

Perhaps you have been wondering "How come no reviews recently?" Good observation, yes we have not done reviews during the past few months...

Looks like we took a break...we sure did.

We mentioned that The Colonel was occupied with different projects that required completion. As well we were becoming somewhat jaded....jaded?

There are a lot of darn good vehicles on the market.

Yes when vehicles start feeling the same, driving the same...a case of perhaps too much of the same. We felt it was perhaps a good idea to simply step away from reviewing vehicles for a period of time.

Sure you can say "The Colonel was busy...thats why you guys did it...."

It did a lot of good to "The Crew" (editorial team) to take a break from reviewing vehicles...

If you missed our Review Manifesto...here, it will provide insight as to how we started doing reviews, and why we do reviews. Obvious that we are in a position to start, and stop as we wish, we are not obligated by publishing dealines, its our publication.

The "hiatus" as been beneficial, and we will be back soon....very soon!
