Summertime! Finally, all convertibles are ready to go. Ladies and Gentlemen start the engines! Each week there are some nice meetings. Volunteers are giving the best of themselves for hours, days, weeks and even months and organize meetings in our beloved hobby world. We already have attended to a couple of them!
Economically the second elections in Greece are over. After the angry first round of ‘protest’ elections, it seems that even the Greek realize that leaving the Euro zone would be a bad thing to do, not only for them, but for all Europe and to put in mildly a shock for the whole world. It’s unbelievable how a small European community can put such a pressure on all the rest.
Let’s compare with the USA. There Greece would be the size of a city something like Detroit. In Detroit life is not a bed of roses neither. Vacancy, unemployment, poverty, crimes, just name it, it’s very bad… but we hardly hear anything of it. The reason? In the United States there is one government with one state of mind, all going in the same direction, something that we are missing in Europe. With us everyone has a vote, each country, each community. No penalties are imposed when budgets are not complied with for instance (except from the expensive interest rate for loans from the European Central Bank). It makes a good economic policy very difficult. Should we have tomorrow a Central government in Europe for economic affairs with the necessary authorities, everything would look different at once!
In fact it’s easy to say that it will be that or the end of the Euro sooner or later. Certainly when countries such as Spain and Italy are getting in the spot lights. They have great problems to finance their national debts. To speed up the economic progress and to turn the crisis throughout the world, we must attend to this European government at once, so that we can get again on the right course. Even if it is at the expense of a part of the sovereignty of the member states.
After all we must think ‘European’, not as a small country, except for social and cultural matters. People should not be afraid, we were never so well off!
Good life automatically translates itself in leisure time and hobby. Never before so much money has been spent on hobbies and leisure. Our Volkswagen hobby definitely is a good example! And isn’t this pleasant? We enjoy it of course and we try to pass this pleasure into our working mind on the pretext of good, better, best!
The offer of meetings and gatherings confirm this story in the whole world, in fact it’s just too good to be true. We must all dare to enjoy life. And that’s exactly what we are going to do this summer, enjoying the weekends with our Volkswagens, and working hard during the week to give a maximum opportunity to as many people as possible to equalize this feeling the next weekend…
Let’s build together on this Volkswagen legend, a story that is really too good to be true, but that has been made in all sincerity by you and me! Life can be beautiful!
I wish you a nice summer, good business, no problems and above all much quality of life.
