AUTOMOTIVE SERENDIPITY ON THE WEB

Yes, the CarPort has re-awakened, after a ten-month, Google-induced coma. The owner of Blogger.com, Google ceased supporting FTP publishing back in the spring, making it impossible for me to post any features to my server since February.

My son Nick, neuroscientist by day and impresario of WeFunk Radio by night, has rebuilt and relaunched the CarPort, now running under WordPress on my own server. Take a look below at the post you should have seen last February, and check back often for (usually) weekly features. We’ll catch up on events of the past winter, spring, summer and autumn, explore some of the vehicles encountered during our vacation in Kenya, and highlight a few of the serendipitous creatures we stumbled upon during the year.

Many of you said you missed us; thanks for being patient. The CarPort originally launched six years ago today. With this better control over our operations and content we should be with you for years to come. Here’s to an exciting time in “Twenty-Leven.”

Serendipity: n. An aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident.
“They were always making discoveries, by accident and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of.”
Horace Walpole, The Three Princes of Serendip
