Demons and Ghouls, Goblins and Ghosts.. Continue
Come listen to a tale hair-raising to most
Stepped out of the darkness, under the moon lit sky
As the night wind howls and the bats fly by
From behind a tombstone a car dealer creeps
To face an open coffin where an awakened corpse weeps
This frightful figure looks dreadfully at the man
And pointing to the stone with a trembling hand
“Rest in Peace” says the corpse with a morbid moan

Many dealers are voicing that sentiment these days. Far too few have done anything about it. Some have learned to use computer software with skill. They use the apps on iPhones, iPads, and Blackberries. They have created an effective Web site. They use FaceBook and Twitter and… Continue
