While reports from France this past week revealed that doctors treating Michael Schumacher are in the process of bringing the seven-time Formula One champion out of a medically induced coma, a video released by the BBC in London describes some of the uncertainties facing Schumacher.
Neurosurgeons in the U.K. confirm that it's unusual for anyone to spend more than two weeks in a medically induced coma, and there are fears that chest infections and breathing problems could affect Schumacher's recovery going forward.
Schumacher is beginning the sixth week of his coma after hitting his head on a rock in a skiing accident in the French Alps on Dec. 29
Last Friday and last day of the month, its the Vroom Room, make yourself comfortable, enjoy the cappuccino and biscotti, join the conversation.
Have you seen the ads from some of the German manufacturers expounding on the winter abilities of their all wheel drive vehicles. They make it look as if their vehicles can literally overcome winter, and that obviously without one of their vehicles one is at a complete loss.
When these ads came out a few years ago, it was interesting to see them occasionally. Now most Germans have the same ad with different vehicles overcoming winter.
This is a more appropriate reality of winter driving.
It will be interesting to see the sales results for January...what do you think?
Winter...we are experiencing a truly Canadian winter...while quickly forgetting what a "real Canadian winter" is all about...we are getting a reminder this year. Yes the cold is disruptive, while creating opportunities for many folks.
Get used to hearing more of FCA = Fiat Chrysler Automobiles the new name for the company now that its all one...think about how often Chrysler has been disrupted in the past 15 years...fascinating.
On a miserably cold, snowy day, coming up to a pair of red C7 Corvettes (coupe and cab) in a showroom...cool cars but it does not truly resonate on a real Canadian winter day.
Hopefully you had an opportunity to watch segments of the Rolex 24 live, in case you did not, here is an extensive photo gallery of the Rolex 24. A pretty good showing by Corvette Racing after a lenghty abscense at Daytona.
Our usual old cars from the Cavallino Classic at the Breakers in Palm Beach.
Informative video and interview with Claude Lelouch who drove and filmed Rendez Vous...
Here is "C'etait un rendez vous"
Its Friday the 13, its the Vroom Room, come in make yourself comfortable enjoy the cappuccino and biscotti, join the conversation.
Yes...we are rapidly progressing towards Christmas...
This year we have done some of our Christmas shopping "online", its surprisingly easy, convenient, saves time, saves gas, and it arrives at the front door. Can it get more convenient?
The other day one of our friends made reference to work/life balance, and the fact that its elusive. It got us thinking that there has been a ton of opinions expressed about work/life balance. Ultimately as individuals each one has their own interpretation of how much balance they require. We see it as productivity, the more balance, the more productivity. Yes...we will share more thoughts in the new year.
Hopefully you noticed that we started the series Social Selling, we are slowly and deliberately progressing with this series, which will continue in the new year. Stay tuned, follow, and share your thoughts.
You have heard that Mary Barra will replace Dan Akerson as CEO of GM, its truly encouraging to see a woman lead one of the Detroit 3 for the first time in history. Reflect on this, its an epic moment for a woman to finally ascend to that level in the auto industry. As you can imagine there are both positive and negative comments from the myriad of pundits in the auto space regarding the succession plan at GM. Yes...since the bankruptcy nothing about GM surprises us.
From our perspective, its great to see a woman lead one of the Detroit 3...hopefully in the near future GM will relearn how to sell vehicles in Canada.
Interesting...behind the scenes at Scuderia Ferrari.
Did you miss that the Time Person of the Year is Pope Francis?
Last Friday we were invited at the grand opening of the Tesla Showroom in Toronto, its been a learning experience to see how different media folks/outlets interpret the same event. We reported the opening, did a photo gallery, mentioned some cool factors, to name a few. Other outlets focused on the brick and mortar, and who occupied the location prior to Tesla. It does take different perspectives...and as we always mention you need to be your own editor.
Our usual old race cars from the F1 Exhibit at the Enzo Ferrari Museum.
