Thanks for the opportunity of leading the CMGC in 2012. It was a task on my bucket list of things to do. It wasn't too hard considering I’ve had help from other staff members.
I’m old school because I still don’t know how to text I don't want to know how to. I'd rather speak one-on-one or on a land line phone call me old fashioned but I don't need that distraction with top down ,wind and the roaring of your engine winding down the road is good enough for me.
I’m writing this letter on 12/12/12 the day that the world is supposed to end, thank God that it hasn’t happened yet. There is too many things to do and so many places to travel. I’ve been on the road since the 1980's - me and my MG – and have driven a lot of miles. I’ve tried to take as many photo's as possible to look back on as we get older.
I've got something of a history to ‘lqqk’ back on as my license a plate says. Funny, while I’m traveling down the road I still get people asking what type or kind of car I’m driving and is that a Triumph or Fiat, etc. So I thought it was easier to just put ‘lqqk MG’ tags. It solves the guessing game of manufactures…and to prove that MG's exist on the road. Maybe we will see late models here in the States and not just mine.
Lisa and I would like to wish our MG family a safe and happy New Year!

Victor L’Heureux, CMGC Secretary
Here we are at the start of another new year, 2013. Time just keeps going by faster and faster. I don't think that I gave you my theory on why this happens, but if I have, then just bear with me for a few lines. I am into fractions, so if you look at one year when you are five years old, that is 1/5th of your life and that is a long time. When you are 30 years old, one year is 1/30th of your life, not so long. When you are 60 years old, one year is 1/60th of your life, again wow, where did that year go! And when you are... time really flies!! Just shows that you need to enjoy every day as a good day, so that as you get older, the good days fill up your life. Always try to look for the good, even when it does not seem to be there. We all want a good life. Wow, how did I end up there!
Hey, if you missed the Club Christmas Party, you missed a good one. Every one that I spoke to had a good time. Great Job by Ralph (The Santa) and Susan Arata for making this a success. Thank you so much for all the planning and decorating. Also, John Kearns (the Elf) as Santa's helper and for Victor L'Heureux (Mr. Tux) for his job as MC throughout the evening. Dino and Lisa also did their usual great job. I don't think that it could have been a better party. There were lots of good door prizes as well, thanks Santa! And lots of people went home with nice gifts. We hope that you had as much fun as Jana and I did. The pictures that flashed throughout the evening were fun to look at, and brought back lots of fun memories. Jana and I learned about the flags that the Arata's brought and hung on the wall. We sure did not know our flags as well as we thought that we knew them.
2013 is poised to be a great year, with lots of fun events and I hope that we can experience another year with very few breakdowns as we had in 2012. Dino was commenting that it was the weather, maybe global warming is not so bad or maybe it is Dave Bralich's tune up and down events! There have to be some up-sides!!
As a reminder, it is time to get your MG odometer reading to Dave Bralich so he can publish the driving results for our cars. It is also time to get signed up for the annual Amtrak trip. Always an adventure!
Have a safe new year!!
