    Is Santa and Xmas just around the corner?

    It seems like just yesterday it was Haloween, and now it's already that time of year. It's a busy time, and you may be hustling & bustling getting ready for the Holidays? It's hard to get that real Xmas tree setup on a boat :)

    If you missed it, our small gift to our readers for the Holidays is a unique 2008 Houseboat Calendar. It has photo's that we have taken throughout our travels in USA & Canada. To get your free Calendar, simply click here and when it opens up, SAVE a COPY to your computer.

    We would like to extend our "politically correct" Season's Greetings.

    So with that in mind, Manon and I want to wish you and your family all the Best for the Holidays. We wish you a healthy and prosperous New Year.

    If you happen to be on a houseboat during the Holidays, we hope you enjoy the scenery and warmth that Xmas provides. Remember to play it safe with Generators, Candles and Heater Extensions.

    You may have noticed that we have had lots of updates & changes recently, and there are plenty planned for you, in the New Year.

    The Biggest Houseboat Show is only 3 months away!

    It's on March 14-16, 2008, in Louisville, Kentucky,

    A collection of video's related to Houseboats & Houseboating.

    This months Video.

    It's with great sadness, but I have to say that I have no video's to offer this month. There are plenty of poor quality (cell phone type), student Spring Break type video's, but nothing worthy of posting here. If you missed last month's video, it was professionally done, and Julie is an excellent host!

    I will continue looking just the same :)

    Last months Video.

    Julie's got a CRUSH on Houseboats

    A special place on the web, just for WOMEN Houseboaters.

    Come on Ladies, the men are beating you with suggestions.
    What suggestions do you have for TOPICS in the Women's Corner?

    After receiving all the "Newsletter/Magazine" subscriptions, we were surprised to see that a large portion were from female readers.

    That's GREAT news, since Manon has been "stockpiling" all kinds of excellent content. Now we can put those plans into ACTION...

    We have a special request, since it's in the planning/organizing stage, if you would share with us your opinions on what you would like to see on the site, this would be an excellent time. Looking forward to your emails.

    Use Wireless to Automate or Protect

    I love this time of year, because Santa knows who's been naughty or nice. I'm sure that Santa knows that I've been especially good lately :)

    Boy's and their Toy's!

    This way, if you've been good, you can spoil yourself with something special. As for myself, I told Santa that I've had my eye on those nifty Wireless Camera/Automation Systems for indoor/outdoor use.

    So if you have a houseboat, a home, or just like playing with all those "really cool gadgets" than you may find our newest sponsor very interesting indeed. They have all the toys that you could possibly want.

    And at the same time, it helps support us with the site :)

    X10 Wireless Cameras! Thousands of Uses!

    Even if your not looking for anything specific, do have a look at the site, you'll be amazed at all the possibilities to use Wireless to "automate or protect" either your houseboat, home, or family.

    NOTE: Their site is very "colorful", and they have an opening voice message, so you can click the "x" to stop the opening message.

    Last months Special product is still available,
    and it could make a great Stocking Stuffer.

    I'm sure you'll agree that a DVD on the "Lifestyle of Luxury Houseboats" is a topic that can get some of us daydreaming about plush mega sized houseboats.

    Luxury Houseboat DVD

    Luxury Houseboat DVD

    DVD's and Video's are getting very popular,
    and here's a DVD on Luxury Houseboats
    that could make it on your Shopping list?

    These make great gifts for people who
    would prefer to watch, rather than read.

    It's a little pricey at $29.95 US, but then
    again, DVD's on Houseboats are RARE!

    To get more details about this DVD,
    or for ordering information, click here.

    The END for now, see you next edition.
