Well today it was anounced that growth figures were down (again). Well I for one just dont believe it, at least not in Swindon anyway, and I guess other towns. When I go down to town I see plenty of people shopping and not just looking. Also if trading figures are low why cant you haggle with these people. There are also a number of companies around here that are doing really well. I also go to a few business/networking meetings and I see nothing but positive people who are doing ok. Although I have to say they are the small business rather than the big corporate houses who may/may not be doing well.
I would love to trade in my old camera gear for nice new stuff but there just are no discounts available anywhere!!!!! There seems to be no downward growth in the photo industry.
On a lighter note, Happy Birthday to the Magic Roundabout, 40 years old this week.
