Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might as well put that passing time to the best possible use.
I've been thinking a lot about this lately and the quote stood out for that reason.
Today I received a call from a government official indicating that they are closing the file on researching Victoria history. On the whole I think they gave it an honest effort. It seems that vehicles weren't registered in the 1950s using the vehicle serial numbers. I did learn that there were 5 Morris Commercial vans known to have existed, but that none was earlier than 1952.
