Bill's Blog

From time to time, we come across things that we think you'll enjoy. Whether it be an interesting car, an industry report, or just a plain good joke, we'd like to share it with you. While not alway centred around the world of a collision shop, it's just another way of Collex showing we care about you and we want to keep in touch with you!

Hilarious Newspaper Ads and Clippings

You just can't make this stuff up!

And How Was Your Day??

In retrospect, mine was pretty good!

The Original HomeLand Security!


The Coolest Intersection Anywhere!

Did you know Gibraltar's Airport runway and vehicular traffic crossings are at the same level and they intersect? 

These are incredible pictures.

This puts a whole new meaning to the saying, "Never jump a red light!"

The Disappearing Door!

What will they think of next!!!  

This is waaaay toooo coool !!!  I love it!

This is certainly great for anyone who has difficulty getting in and out of a car.

Someone had a bright idea in England . Wonder how long it will take to get this on the market in  Japan and the U.S. ?

The Magical Bank - Something to Think About!

Something to think about. ....

Imagine that you had won the following prize in a contest:

Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400.00 in your private account for your use.

However,this prize has rules, just as any game has certain rules.

The first set of rules would be: 

Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away from you. 

You may not simply transfer money into some other account. 

You may only spend it. 

Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400.00 for that day.

The second set of rules: 

The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say,

Its over,the game is over! It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.

What would you personally do? 

You would buy anything and everything you wanted right?

Not only for yourself, but for all people you love, right?

Even for people you don't know, because you couldn't possibly spend it all on yourself, right?

You would try to spend every cent, and use it all, right?


Each of us is in possession of such a magical bank. We just can't seem to see it.


Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life, and when we

go to sleep at night, any remaining time is NOT credited to us. 

What we haven't lived up that day is forever lost.

Yesterday is forever gone.

Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time....WITHOUT WARNING.

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars. 

Think about that, and always think of this:

Enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.

So take care of yourself, be Happy, Love Deeply and enjoy life!

Here's wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day. 

Start spending.
