Huge Lobster catches this year in New Brunswick!

There have been some great lobster catches here in New Brunswick. So many, that allot of fishermen hauled up their traps early in the season here in the North Shore. The season starts near the lower part of the province in the next little while, near Shediac, the lobster capital of the world!

This is a problem for the supply and demand situation. The large amounts of lobsters caught, will result in lower prices for the upcoming year ahead. Especially when Maine floods the market here at times with their own lobster, processors take the cheaper USA lobster over our own fishermans lobster. And they say that the lobster season is much longer in Maine than in this area.

I remember a time when the lobsters were scarce, when the prices were high, and you would be lucky to get a mess of lobster come near the end of the season. This is not the case as it stands right now. I think better conservation practices, have turned the tide to create an over abundance once again. The lobsters they throw back are larger than years gone by.

How do you fix this problem. Easy. Market the lobster, to Japan, Germany, Russia, Italy, or where ever. Get good salesmen. It has to be done early, when the season starts. If you are late, just start right now. You will never find as good as seafood as caught right here in the Atlantic Provinces. I know the King Crab is already shipped in huge amounts to Japan and all over the world.

No news on the book front.. Till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
