As I am sure many of you have noticed, we are starting to get a more steady stream of product into the stores… time to gear up for summer! I’m not going to touch on any of our bigger brands, but will focus on many of the smaller companies that we received stuff from in the last 2 weeks. Hippy Tree T shirts came in! These are always a favorite with their witty slog...... & Fashion!Thu, 26 Nov 2009 16:58:00 GMTThe Life of BrianSo, I’m at home on the sofa with some sort of illness. I don’t think it’s the Flu, but it might as well be. Maybe it was the economy, but for some reason I was sick more times in 2009 than in the previous 5 years combined. I don’t think anybody likes being sick, but I REALLY can’t stand it. I’m such a go-getter and I feel like my body is fighting me when I’m sick. Eventually I give in and lay on the sofa… like now. The last time this happene...... StoriesWed, 06 Jan 2010 12:47:00 GMTDave's WorldWe just had our 4th Earth Day Kayak Demo, Trail Run, Tree Planting and Park Cleanup, at Big Foot Beach State Park.

School supply lists, back-to-school sales, I’ve even seen Halloween, and not to be outdone, yes, Christmas decorations at a few stores already. One more flip of the calendar and it’ll be August.

It amazes me to see the way that just surrounding yourself with people that do not think the same way that you do and do not follow the path that you were brought up to follow will open your eyes to the rest of the world and in turn can change the direction of your life completely. I cannot deny that I am influenced by those around me, I can make sure that...... StoriesFri, 26 Mar 2010 18:25:00 GMTMotivated Moms It seems I find myself debating with me on a daily basis about this bout of bitter cold. I keep swaying to “hibernate”, “hibernate”, while in the backdrop, another part within me says, “Activate, Activate”. This week I found myself facing the same crux. Standing at the Redbox with eager children awaiting their desired selection for a kick back cozy night at home, I discreetly peered around the man about to check out the movie my little people were seek......

I've been bit and piece hiking and running the Ice Age Trail since May .. This section East of Devils Lake and through to Devil's Lake is an 8 mile segment that took me through amazing land - prairie, marsh, forest and rocky cliffs!

The Sam Elliott character (The Stranger) said it best in the movie’s final narrative when he says that he took comfort in the fact that the Dude abides.
