On the last day of July, and half way down the dog days of summer, with the days already getting shorter.
What has caught our attention so far this summer in no particular order.
It seems that every manufacturer stepped on the gas this month to either uphold or perhaps try to increase sales volume. Lets see in a few days how it develops.
Time is an increasingly precious commodity.
Your personal life and privacy is becoming another precious commodity, just like you have to be your own editor, you have to be your own guardian of your privacy.
We moved our editorial offices and are almost finished catching up with a bunch of stuff that was put aside to accomodate the move.
The race for eyeballs by the mainstream media intensifies on a daily basis. Which also increases your need to be your own editor.
For some reason the retail auto business is still stuck in the pre internet, pre social media days...or so it seems.
For some other reason the bloom os off social media, the idealism of a few years ago has worn off, its probably normal.
Genuine, real, old fashioned, old school human interactions are acquiring several levels of importance, think about this its an emerging trend.
More important, hopefully you have taken or will take some time to enjoy your family and friends, a cold drink, an enjoyable meal, perhaps even a cigar...an a few days disconnected from the "digital wire".
Yes...there is another month to go, before reality will start setting in...enjoy!
