Another year is about to end

Today is the last day of 2012. It seems like it was only 365 days ago that it was the end of 2011. But here we are, at the end of 2012 thankful that the Mayans were wrong about the end of the world. Or should I say that those who interpreted the calendar were wrong?

Although we survived a potential end of the world event, it isn’t over yet. As I sit here composing this blog, we ( the American public ) sit on the edge of a “fiscal cliff” about to fall off. It appears that the “do nothing congress” of 2012 is about to do nothing again and let us fall off the cliff and bear the burden of their failure to do what is right for the American public. If things get bad enough, those of us who own RVs might have to move into them permanently. Maybe we should ask congress to work for nothig in the year 2013 since they were paid to do nothing in 2012.

What about all of these phrases that get over used each year? “Fiscal Cliff” is the one that is being beaten to death right now. It refers to the tax cuts and spending cuts that will expire tomorrow if congress and the prez don’t do something about it before the ball drops in Times Square. Another one that is over used is “kicking the can down the road”. I guess that means putting a patch on the problem without really fixing it. How about, “at the end of the day”. That one really gets used a lot as well as “it is what it is”. We Americans are good at this. I wonder what will emerge in 2013?

But there is hope! The 2013 RV show season starts on January 3rd. At least that’s the earliest show that I could find. A new year dawns and a new crop of RVs are presented to the public. RV shows are a great way to shop and compare the different models and floor plans that might be of interest to you, the RV enthusiast. On our website, we attempt to list all of the RV shows during the year. So if you are looking for a show near you, go to the RV Show page for a listing.

A new year always brings hope of better things to come. So let’s hope that at the end of the day, it will be the end of the day and we will not have fallen off the fiscal cliff by not kicking the can down the road again because it is what it is. Have a Happy New Year!!
