Hello, everyone! It was almost three months ago that I left work, had a baby and stayed at home to take care of him, and while I miss him so much, it feels good to be back doing what I love and working for an industry that I truly admire.

So, what did I miss while I was gone?

Well, I missed two big carwash shows. And, it looks like both went really well. The Northeast Regional Carwash Convention had its largest showroom floor ever and attracted more than 1,300 attendee. The San Diego show seemed to also have good numbers. What does this all mean? Well, I wonder if people are optimistic about 2013. I remember saying I was optimistic about 2012 and it looks like it was a "good year" for folks. Not to generalize, but often, good numbers at the tradeshows, indicate the carwash industry and market are doing well, too.

So, here at PC&D, we are gearing up to put out 12 more top-notch magazine issues for 2013. The team here has put in months and months of research to determine what it is you would like to see and read about next year. If fact, I have seen the early stages of the January 2013 issue and its remarkable. If there is anything you would like for us to cover in upcoming issues, please write to me at dgorgos@carwash.com.

In the meantime, I hope you're all enjoying this festive and generous time of year.

It's good to be back!
