BBT News

A warm and very welcome to our weekly News.

Warm especially as temperatures starting to drop with a forecast for freezing and snow next week, but who are we to complain after such a very nice summer and exquise fall.

In the news were the  Brexit discussion that dominated the markets together with the Italian budget discussion with the EU. The dollar doesn’t know to point what direction, but is slowly gaining profit, surely last couple of months, time to export more to the USA! Furthermore of course our thoughts and doubts go out to all victims of the Californian fires, the worst and most killing ever. Even Paradise is not paradise anymore, it’s actually nothing anymore as it all burned off to the ground. To all our friends and customers over there we can only share our thoughts and hope they had good insurance coverage. More to the south in California  we’ve seen all people from the real mondain Malibu shivering and shaking. Fires are bad for everybody except for sequoia trees, hopefully the super nations fire fighters can get fast control over the fires now.

But also this week BBT News is hot with very cool new products for our beloved Volkswagens.

First thing we enlarged our product line for Bay window seat covers with these two popular models. From now on we will stock in our stock program following two sets of front seat covers. If you don’t find your required seat covers in our program, we can always order them for you with our Upholstery special order air freight program with very acceptable delivery times. Inquire @ your favourite BBT agent, distributor or sales person.

Nov 11 11.00o’clock its exactly 100years cease fire from the “big war”

The “Grooten Oorlog” (Big War) ended exactly 100 years ago November 11 at 11.00 o’clock in a railway wagon from Belgian company WagonLits that was driven to Compiegne, just south of the Belgian border in France

Time for some serenity, and to meditate why so many of our families suffered and so many soldiers got killed.

Was it worthless? Maybe, but it helps to realise how good we have it today and should not complain.

No picture today out of respect, but a really nice poem from ex officer of that war, John McCrae, a Canadian who offered is life for all we have now…

In Flanders fields….

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
  That mark our place; and in the sky
  The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
  Loved and were loved, and now we lie
      In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
  The torch; be yours to hold it high.
  If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
      In Flanders fields.

My God be with you today….
