The Jaguar job cuts are not surprising now that we know they suffered a $1 billion dollar loss for 2008.

It doesn't look good for Jaguar now they are in the red.

You have a great blog. However, noticed that you don't allow comments. Anyway, thanks for dropping by.

Thanks for the kind words Adam. I had comments enabled but I turned them off after it occured to me that since it's really an aggregate type blog that just points visitors to great posts there wasn't really a need for comments.

If I was writing my own posts like you I would definitely turn them back on.

My husband and I just recently opened up a blog called The Auto Depot at
He's a car mechanic with over 16 years of experience in customisation. I'd appreciate it if you
would check it out and tell us what you think, thanks all.
