Operation Cardboard Christmas

Aloha, everybody, 

It's that time of year again. Time for my humble little blog to make a cardboard snowstorm for Christmas. 

This shoebox is stuffed like Santa's sleigh! 

This is my third annual giveback to you, my readers, trade partners and friends for making this card collecting hobby 100 times more fun than it could ever be without you. 

I'm also happy to announce that despite a low budget (once again lol), this year's cardboard snowstorm will be the biggest yet, with the most packages and PWEs I've sent to date. 

I'm happy to spread a little cardboard love around the blogosphere. If you're on my nice list (of past trading partners), chances are, something is coming your way. Heck, there's even a couple of things going out to blogs that went dark this year and before. 

It will take about three mailings for me to get everything out, and here are the zip codes for the first batch, which went out this afternoon:

So the Dodgers Passed on Giancarlo Stanton...

Aloha, everybody, 

Sure it's a bit late, especially on the east coast, where Giancarlo Stanton will apparently stay for the next decade. 

But it's not too late here on the western side of the country, where the wildfires are keeping us awake. 

I launched a quickie YouTube video with my thoughts on the Giancarlo Stanton/ Dodgers affair, and for good measure, I tossed in a beer review. It's IPA from Mad River Brewing, out of Humbold County, very northern California. 

Watch and enjoy, please. Don't forget to "Like" the video (if you happen to). Thanks and aloha!
