This week's survey 

 
(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. 
Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)  
 
The survey results on the question of .....:

Would you welcome electric Utes for your business since the price of petrol is predicted to continue on an upward trend?
  • Wow, Out of the petrol frying pan and into the electric wok!
    If NSW is anything to go by the price of electricity may end up being fat more expensive than petrol. Also our Apartment complex received a quote to install three Power Outlets for a "just in case" scenario and guess what? $30K to connect to the grid and $5K for each Power Point???
    Bring on the Elon Musk Battery Ute/Van or the Toyota Prius Ute/Van (Brian, Kwik Kopy Australia)
  • Depends on capital cost, battery life, ease of use (recharge time and availability of suppy), load capacity, speed, towing ability, and so on.(Gary, Scotchline Signs) 
  • No. I can see no value in electric vehicles for a while yet. Their limitations and price make them unviable for anyone but the trendy latte sipping tree huggers in society. My diesel Vito can get 1100klm to a tank on highway driving so the running costs aren't a huge issue for me. If you own a V8 or souped-up V6 then it may be an issue. I doubt an electric car would be on your horizon tho if you are of that fraternity.
  • If it does the same job at a cheaper price, why not. Providing of course that we don't have stops because of low power, etc.
  • Latest study has found that overall electric vehicles are more expensive to run (overall)  than petrol vehicles of similar power. However I am an environmentalist and would welcome the opportunity to rid the world of gas emitting vehicles. Hybrid vehicils make a whole lot of sense..
  • Elon Musk has announced an electric semi-truck now, so maybe that would be of interest to some in our industry.

I have no idea who put this together, but it is memorable!


Long ago and far away, in a land that time forgot,
Before the days of Dylan , or the dawn of Camelot.
There lived a race of innocents, and they were you and me,
For Menzies was in the Parliament in that land where we were born,
Where navels were for oranges, and Peyton Place was porn.
We longed for love and romance, and waited for our Prince,
Eddie Fisher married Liz, and no one's seen him since.
We danced to 'Little Darlin,' and sang to 'Stagger Lee'
And cried for Buddy Holly in the Land That Made Me, Me.
Only girls wore earrings then, and 3 was one too many,
And only boys wore flat-top cuts, except for Jean McKinney.
And only in our wildest dreams did we expect to see
A boy named George with Lipstick, in the Land That Made Me,Me.
We fell for Frankie Avalon, Annette was oh, so nice,
And when they made a movie, they never made it twice.
We didn't have a Star Trek Five, or Psycho Two and Three,
Or Rocky-Rambo Twenty in the Land That Made Me, Me.
Miss Kitty had a heart of gold, and Chester had a limp,
And Tarzan was a loner whose co-star was a chimp.
We had a Mr. Wizard, but not a Mr. T,
And Oprah couldn't talk yet, in the Land That Made Me, Me.
We had our share of heroes, we never thought they'd go,
At least not Bobby Darin, or Marilyn Monroe.
For youth was still eternal, and life was yet to be,
And Elvis was forever in the Land That Made Me, Me.
We'd never seen the rock band that was Grateful to be Dead,
And Aeroplanes weren't named Jefferson , and Zeppelins were not Led.
And Beatles lived in gardens then, and Monkees lived in trees,
Madonna was Mary in the Land That Made Me, Me.
We'd never heard of microwaves, or telephones in cars,
And babies might be bottle-fed, but they were not grown in jars.
And pumping iron got wrinkles out, and 'gay' meant fancy-free,
And dorms were never co-Ed in the Land That Made Me, Me.
We hadn't seen enough of jets to talk about the lag,
And microchips were what was left at the bottom of the bag.
And hardware was a box of nails, and bytes came from a flea,
And rocket ships were fiction in the Land That Made Me, Me.
T-Birds came with portholes, and side shows came with freaks,
And bathing suits came big enough to cover both your cheeks.
And Coke came just in bottles, and skirts below the knee,
And Castro came to power near the Land That Made Me, Me.
We had no Crest with Fluoride, we had no Hill Street Blues,
We had no patterned pantyhose or Lipton herbal tea
Or prime-time ads for those dysfunctions in the Land That Made Me,Me.
There were no golden arches, no Perrier to chill,
And fish were not called Wanda, and cats were not called Bill.
And middle-aged was 35 and old was forty-three,
And ancients were our parents in the Land That Made Me, Me.
But all things have a season, or so we've heard them say,
And now instead of Maybelline we swear by Retin-A.
They send us invitations to join AARP,
We've come a long way, baby, from the Land That Made Me, Me.
So now we face a brave new world in slightly larger jeans,
And wonder why they're using smaller print in magazines.
And we tell our children's children of the way it used to be,
Long ago and far away in the Land That Made Me, Me.

Those who didn't grow up in the fifties, have missed the greatest time in history,
