Today’s Post by Joe Farace
On this special day, I would like to wish a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you who have taken this little blog to your heart. In a few weeks we will begin our ninth year of operation. I know it’s hard even for me to believe that! I appreciate each and every one of you who takes the time to visit the blog.
There is no doubt that 2020 was a challenge for all of us automobile enthusiasts and a challenging one for me to even keep up with crating, writing and photographing twice a week posts. Hopefully the gradual rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines will offer more opportunities to participate in more car related activities in 2021. When that happens I plan to increase frequency of new posts to thee times a week. So if you have any questions or comments that you might have or topics—or cars—you would like featured in this blog, just click Contact.
In the New Year, I hope to add a way for readers to sign up for an e-mail based subscription so you’ll be notified and sent new posts when they happen. That change is a direct result of a reader’s question, so we not only listen to your comments and questions but act of them when I can. I’m also hopeful that in 2021 I will be able to offer more video features including vlogs as well as interviews with owners of interesting cars at Cars & Coffee events. I have asked Barry Staver to shoot these interviews and (maybe if I’m lucky) edit the footage into something suitable for this blog. Otherwise I will be adding the title of video editor to my other job descriptions of ‘chief cook and bottle washer’ for this blog.
So on behalf of myself and Mary we would like to wish you all the merriest of holidays and as Tiny Tim once said, “God bless us one and all.”
PS: And if you find yourself feeling a bit down this time of the year because of the pandemic and all the disruption that it has caused for our social structure,—not just related to cars—you might want to read the special Christmas message that I wrote for my old blog, ‘Saving the World, One Pixel at a Time.’ a few years ago. Click the link and read what I hope are words of inspiration.
