This  some our old news taht we have deleted form the main NEWS page.

Lighing has put us out of business for about a week.
Orders for that period are taking longer to get out.
Knocked out the phones and intenet. Needed some computer recovery also. Finally after about  $ 2,0000 dollars of repairs, back up on 8-2-10

Hot, Hot Hot.  Warehouse was up to 98 a couple of days ago (no AC).  Picking and packing orders has gotten to be (hell). Usual Summer slow down, expecting to pick up in a few weeks.

2-03-10 We were looking for an New guard dog.Got one but,  she's a white and tan pointer, that will lick you to death.  She was  too cute at the Animal shelter, so she came back with us. She rules the place.. Would love to have the time to trainer here, so we can get out for some bird hunt'un.
