What's the big deal about September and Dolphin Jewelry?!!!

What IS the deal about September and Dolphin Jewelry?!!!



I don't know either, but for one reason or another we've already sold twice as much dolphin jewelry this month than usual and we still have over a week to go.

Since people seem to be in a Dolphin Jewelry frenzy, I want to stir up the waters more and see if I can keep it going at least until Halloween.

So if you want to buy some beautiful dolphin jewelry for yourself or the dolphin lover in your life, look around at all the great dolphin jewelry we have, send me an email at shane@allthingsdolphins.com, tell me what you want and I'll make you a deal.

I could just say I'll give you x% off, but I like to hear personally from customers. The internet is so impersonal that I want to throw in a bit o' the personal touch. So send me an email and see what I can do for you.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Until next time,

Shane

Dolphin Slaughter




This is a sad subject and also one that is shockingly unbelievable. That there are still "people" in the world that would do this is beyond comprehension. But, the Japanese annual dolphin slaughter is on again in Taiji, Japan. Every year they herd up around 2000 dolphins with motor boats, bring them into shore, slaughter a magority of them and send the rest to aquariums.

If you are in the States or England, you can join the WDCS on September 20th at a peaceful demonstration outside the Japanese embassy in London, or Washington. To find out more, please go to: http://uk.wdcs.org/go/NL060918DRIVE

In an aside; I live in Japan and know many Japanese people. They are my friends and my neighbors. They are all very nice and considerate. The ones that I've asked about the dolphin slaughter are just as shocked as you are. The average Japanese has no idea this is going on. So please don't condemn a whole nation on the actions of a few.

That's all.

See you with a happier subject next time.

A Dolphin Named Bob.


"Bob, can you keep up with me?" "Sue, Look! I'm flying!"

OK. Their names might not be Bob and Sue, but, scientists have proved that dolphins have distinct names and they call each other with whistles. That's cool! Because of the low visibilty in the ocean and the large groups they travel in, dolphins need a way to figure out who's around them and finding their friend. So instead of looking around in the murk they just call out "Hey, Sue. Let's go swim over there by that boat and let those weird animals in the boat take some pictures of us."

Again, I may be off a little on what they say, but just the fact they can say, "Hey, Sue" is pretty amazing. I found this article on a great news page: http://www.crystalinks.com/dolphinnews.html

Check it out.

Long Time


Where have I been?
Sorry! I've been away from my post for awhile. If you've tried to write me, I probably didn't get your letter because for some reason or another my email was on the fritz since August 8. Finally I'm back and there were almost 100 letters waiting for me. I've waded through them. No, for hundreth time I don't need V#iaG1ra or whatever clever way they spell it to get past the filters.


So what's hot?

I never can tell what's going to sell or not. Those Water motion pictures are huge. They're selling like hotcakes as the saying goes. I'm glad we have as many as we do. If you haven't taken advantage of the incredible offer we're making, you better hurry up before we go back to normal price. Can you believe these sell for over $100 and we're offering them for only $67.95? You're saving over $40! So you can get the great water moving picture and STILL have money left over for a nice dinner or more dolphin goods.
Recently Our dolphin wire frame has been selling hot. I think it's because of all those great pictures people took over the summer and they want a summer themed frame to put them in. It's an adorable frame and so affordable. Many customers tell us they order a couple and give them to their friends. Who doesn't know someone who's not a dolphin lover? Check out the frame here and don't forget about the motion waterfall picture.


Until next time,

Shane

P.S. We have other frames too. So pick out one that suits your style, put in your favorite photo and let the compliments roll in.

Vacation


Hi again,

I just got back from my vacation to Minnesota. You know Minnesota, right? Vacation-land, USA.

OK. Maybe it's not everyone's first choice for summer vacation, but it is where I'm from so I love going back and seeing my family and friends.

We went to The Minnesota Zoo. It's an incredible place. There was a beautiful dolphin fountain right at the entrance so my wife snapped this picture of me and my children in front of it. I only wish my wife had been in the picture too.

Anyway, dolphin fountains are so cool and fun. If you don't have one, it's time you start thinking about getting one. So here's what to do:

1. Go to http://allthingsdolphins.com/Fountains
2. Pick out a fountain you like.
3. Order it.
Then...
4. Send an email to shane@allthingsdolphins.com and give me your order number.

Why do you want to do that?

Because I'll then credit your Pay Pal account or your credit card 10% of the fountain's cost. So jsut order any fountain you like and tell me you saw this blog and want 10% off. I'll get your discount right back to you.

See you next time.

Mesmerizing!!!

I was walking through the mall the other day and I came across a kiosk that was selling Motion Waterfall Pictures. I love those things and, since I sell them on my site, I decided to take a look.

They had some real beautiful ones there. The salesman told me that it didn’t matter what kind of room you put them in. They fit in anywhere; whether it’s next to a moose head or next to a Picasso. I thought it was a very interesting way of putting it and I totally agree with him.

I first saw a Motion Waterfall Picture at a bowling alley when I was around 6 years old. It mesmerized me. It was an old beer sign with a waterfall and a bear on it. I thought it was magic and stared at it for what seemed like an eternity, but as I grew older and a little more discerning, I thought they were a little tacky.

So when I first had the opportunity to offer Motion Waterfall Pictures on my website, I was skeptical. Then I saw what was being offered and jumped at the chance. These things are so beautiful and look so good; I almost bought another one from the guy at the kiosk. But, his prices were very expensive.

He had big ones for over $400 and smaller ones for almost $100. It made me think about how much the ones at allthingsdolphins.com were. We sell them for $99.95, but our supplier is having a big special and is offering a huge discount. So, if you’re lucky enough to see this blog, until September 30 you can get one for only $67.95.

These are one of our most popular products. The last ones we had sold out quickly, but we just got some more in a week ago. The sale ends in September, but we may run out well before that. So hurry!!! Take a look at them here.
