This n' That

Well, we made it through the New Year unscathed.. Mostly by following my practice of sleeping through it and avoiding it entirely! I learned long ago that New Years revelries were not good for my health, so I just ignore them..

On a more positive note for birddog enthusiasts, I came across a blog all about canine olfactory powers, and there's much that we Pointing dog types can learn from it concerning scent.. It's called "Did a Cat Shit in Here?" and, despite the name, there's lots of good info to be gleaned... Check it out!

On the shotgun side of things, Michael of The Cold Duck blog has another great post about the RBL-16 that deserves a serious look. I always considered myself to be a maverick swimming against the tide of accepted knowledge on such issues, but the thoughts expressed at Cold Duck coincide perfectly with my own.. It's odd for me to find such a kindred spirit when it comes to shotgun issues.. Give Cold Duck a look..

Enjoy the coming weekend!


  1. Keep up the good work at Black & Tan, Bill. You should offer a link to Saranac Brewers in trade for a weekly pint of their Black & Tan.

    Come next Fall, we can put down our pencils for a bit, grab our 16's, and hunt up some fresh yarns. I'm very much looking forward to it.


  2. I'm looking very much forward to it myself, Michael.. And I'll have the corporate offices look into the Saranac deal!
