How’s your office?
Recently I was straightening up my office. You know how it is, your things get moved around as you work so you put them back where you can find them.

It is amazing how many new products come on the market year after year. And when you narrow that new product list down to hunting or fishing supplies, it is even more amazing. It seems to me like there would have to be one year where everybody just ran out of ideas for a new gizmo or gadget and where “new and improved” would just be the same as last year.
