Although other distraction have seen a fall in Youtube viewers this week the revenue is really unaffected which shows we are left with a good quality audience and thats important. If the present trends continue through 2018 I'm not sure we'll have the capacity to reach all the destinations we'll be able to afford. Really the whole enterprise has now exceeded my expectations when I retired from the day job and is something of a reward for over forty years serving the transport enthusiast hobby with photos, models, videos and more recent years DVDs followed by online digiital media. I've posted a few scenes from, Merseyside 1989/90 for anyone who wants a change from cartoons on TV, it will never get back to the standards we enjoyed when Morecambe and Wise held sway at Christmas and comedy specials for the likes of Dads army were having their first outing. I've been busy filing away my photo files, still a lot more to catch up with, Mandy says its because I'm too prolific, not sure if that was a compliment or not. Who knows what 2018 will bring, certainly I'm hoping to knock a couple more destinations off my 2017 bus location to do list then I can roll out next years targets.
Thanks to everyone who sent us Christmas cards so kind of you all, I hope you liked the PMP one based on a painting by a friend of ours Paul Aitchison who we were often near at the likes of Showbus but he has given up on the rally scene. We have the new PMP branded tent to try out next year, I was going to get all the stock out of the van, clean the fleet and do some tidying in the garden but my back is still quite bad. I've already managed to get through two services at St Oswalds today, I'm also reading at the midnight service and then there for 8am Christmas and 11 am which will be the big one- a few more pain killers will be needed to get through all that. We are having Guinea fowl for dinner tomorrow evening, perhaps a few chocolates in the day, maybe the Christmas cake will get an airing it was made a bit last minute this year. As I've put Merseyside on Youtube lets have some photos from that neck of the woods, enjoy your Christmas I'll try and blog on the big day.
