Hang In There: BC 2010 Still On Ice

Hello Tough-As-Nails Bloggers,

It’s been past the time since I thought I would have a glorious, information-filled update for you. But, alas. Although the word isn’t “setback” or “delay” – we have had some issues that have prevented us from sharing more information for Blog Cabin 2010.

Although that’s not a lot of info, believe it or not, I’ve probably said too much. All I can say is keep the faith and stay tuned. There IS going to be a 2010 Blog Cabin, and it will NOT be business as usual. It’s going to be a different approach, but one we think everyone will love.

In the meantime, I’m sure you are aware we are again handing out cold cash – this time $25,000 worth of the stuff in the Cool Tools Holiday Blitz Giveaway, plus valuable weekly prizes from Stanley To0ls.

Also, there’s a chair to be had out there. But not just any chair; your choice from among nine chairs from HGTV’s Angelo Surmelis. Very cool. Plus, it’s a blogging mystery YOU have to solve. Here’s Clue 1 … and here’s Clue 5. Open up a blank email, follow the links and start compiling your answers as you weave through the various entries. The Clue 5 blog entry provides a summary of everything you need to do. Good luck!

A big Christmas Cheers to everyone,

Watson, Manager

  1. Hi Watson,
    I've never been the first blogger on a thread before! Maybe it's my lucky month!
    And a very curious blog you have posted….Intrigue…mystery…a challenge! I will have to sort through and see what I need to do.
    Sounds like us bloggers will sure be excited about the new BC 2010! Can't wait to hear more. Meanwhile, keep warm as winter has surely sprung, so to speak. Thanks for the new thread. Time to put my Sherlock Holmes cap on!
    Have a great weekend!

    • There's a first time for everything. Pun intended!

    • No, the first blogger never wins.

  3. Watson: Thanks so much for the new thread! And for the info about the 2010 BC. I look forward to a new approach. Hoping that we go back to only voting ONCE PER DAY.

    I've been entering the Cool Tools sweeps everyday. Just like a good little girl. 8-)

    I'll check out the Mystery Blog also. Thanks for the heads up!

  4. Hi Watson, thanks for the update and the tease of a new adventure with blog cabin 2010. I see DIY likes making me hold my breath for a lil while longer. That's ok, I'm SECHI & I'm really looking forward to the BC 2010 and always ready for something new and different.
    I too have been entering the Cool Tools sweeps, Would love to buy a new workshop and more tools for hubby.
    And that's very kind of Angelo to give us a mystery to solve to keep us busy and a chance to win a piece of his new furniture line and not just any furniture, a personally designed chair of our own choice. Very cool !

  5. Yep, entered Cool Tools giveaway just as much as the K&B makeover. And my chances for the weekly drawings are winners for sure, I just haven't been notified, right? Yuppers gotta keep a positive attitude in this game. Watson says we are going to love the 2010BC and I believe, I believe. Now to think about what I would do with a chair. hmmm. better go look at them. LLL

  6. Watson thanks for the new thread and the info on the 2010 Blog Cabin. Can't wait to start another year. Like others I hope it's a one vote a day for items. Also entered the Cool Tools giveaway and submitted answers for Angelo's chair. Everyone keep warm and have a great evening. Glad to see the regulars here.

  7. Watson, Thanks for the new thread and the challenge of winning one of Angelo's chairs. I have all of the answers collected except for #5. I can't get onto facebook because it is blocked here at work. Would anyone help me with answers for clue # 5?

    NancyBee on December 7, 2009 at 1:47 pm
    • Sorry Nancy, saw your post a day too late or I would have gladly helped you.

  8. Watson, bad boy, not nice to tease blog cabiners. You know how we can get. So not even one itty bitty little clue – like the cabin will be in say the US? HAHA. This is like a cliffhanger.

    Other news – IT'S RAINING IN SO CAL!!!! yaaaaaaaaay!!!
