I went fishing again

And I'm sure most of you never even realized I was gone from June 4-10.

In any case, we once again made the 12 hour drive due north to Cochrane, Ontario. Once we checked in at the Thrift Lodge and took a few minutes to alert family and friends that we'd made it safely, we headed off to dinner and to Thib's Tavern to visit with our friends Jasmine, Ronda and Vic (along with a few new friends!).

Bright and early Saturday morning, Mark Jones, Andre and the rest of the guys at Cochrane Air got us licensed, our gear loaded and a Cesna and a Beaver in the air. By 9:30am, we had touched down at Floodwood lake for a week of fishing.

The fishing was better than last year at Twopeak Lake, and the fish were larger, too! Both Mike and Eric hauled in 28" walleyes, with Mark and I close behind. Once the week was over, we had caught over 1100 fish, and more than 2 dozen of the walleyes were over 2 feet!

A good time was had by all!

For all of you about to send me an email or give me a call... yes, I know I don't know how to hold a fish for a picture. I was just hoping that Eric would get the picture taken before the fish flopped out of my hands (again).

BTW -- does anyone recognize the hat I'm wearing in the picture? Yep! That's the same Dorfman Pacific Safari Hat that I wore to Lake Nettogami two years ago and blogged about here. I bought it from specifically for these fishing trips, and it's held up quite nicely!

7-Day Clearance Countdown

7... 6... 5...

New Pets Category at Walker & Fetch (Get It?)

Over the years, many Blair shoppers have asked us to carry items for their pets. A few months back, our Home products people decided to test a few pet items online, and were surprised at how popular they were. So... we recently developed an entire catalog dedicated to pets (Walker & Fetch), and have a tab on dedicated to all our new pet products.

Shoppers can find everything for their pets at Walker and Fetch -- beds... collars and leashes... food and treats... training aids, and so much more! There are even categories dedicated to household decor, framed art and jewelry (for you, not your pet!). affiliates should be sure to add links to Walker & Fetch in any pet related categories on the their site(s). Walker & Fetch products pay the same commissions as all products, and all promotions apply to Walker & Fetch products, too!

7-Day Clearance Countdown

This post is just a teaser...

The word on the street (well, we were in Conference Room 4A, not on the street) is that the 7-Day Clearance Countdown may be making a triumphant return to

The Clearance Countdown was hugely popular with Blair shoppers, and affiliates loved sending traffic to this popular promo. Unfortunately, when switched platforms in early 2009, we lost the functionality. Blair shoppers, affiliates and our marketing dept. have been begging to get it back, and we're being told that the next site build may give us the capabilities we need.

So... let the countdown for the return of the Countdown begin!
