OK I think I'm having a breakthrough

OK, so I've a couple of breakthroughs and realized I was wrong about the Ford EcoSport from Mexico. First is the fact that it is a rebadged Ford Fusion, a car I like from the European market.
Secondly I found a way to translate the foreign websites into english.

Goto and in the box indicated enter the URL for the site, then using the menu determine what translation you need, such as Spanish to English. Then hit the translate button and Babelfish opens that site within it's own. Simple really once you figure it out.

I started this blog as a way to express my opinion on Ford's product mix and my love of Ford past, present and future. The added bonus is that I've been forced to learn how to do more with my computer and the Internet. Overall it's been a lot of fun and now that I've got some of the tasks done, I hope to make this blog more interesting.

I'm convinced that nobody reads this blog but a few people I told. I have not received any comments on posts except my friend Kevin pointing out that I am not 40 until next week.

Somehow I want to find a way to get word out about my blog, maybe have discussions with other Ford fans and learn more. I don't know, maybe that's wishing for too much. In the mean time, this is a lot of fun.

Yes 42, the answer to the ultimate question, but what's your question.

Yes it was not lost on me that the translation site is called babelfish after the useful creatures from Douglas Adam's series of novels, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, "Don't Panic"

But it works so that's great
