Default Happy Birthday, Char!

Unless my calendar is totally messed up (which is entirely possible), I believe today is the birthday of our beloved moderator.

Hey Char:
The Jays pulled one out! You gotta love the Jays . . . and, for that matter, . . . “We must remember to love the Leafs” – memorable quote from a recent celebrity guest on the Fan.
Hope you had a great one, but I also have this frightening image of you wandering the streets of Whitby with a big gift bow on your head.
Please confirm you made it home!

22-pound lobster caught


Published Thursday July 10th, 2008



Greg Agnew

Store owner Denis Breau places a 22-pound ancient lobster in a holding tank at the Big Fish fish market in Shediac. The lobster was found near Deer Island in southwestern N.B. and is believed to be around 100 years old.

Bounty placed on giant lobster: $1,000

Published Friday July 11th, 2008


Offers to buy Big Dee-Dee starting to trickle in



By James Foster
Times & Transcript Staff

SHEDIAC - More than 1,000 people showed up yesterday to visit Big Dee-Dee, the giant lobster who now sits in a lobster tank at a Shediac lobster shop.

That rivals the number of people who visited Shediac's other main tourist attraction yesterday, the giant statue of a lobster that greets visitors at the western entrance to the town.
The big difference between the two, other than the fact one lobster is real and the other is made of plaster and concrete, is that only one of them has a price on his head.
Big Dee-Dee, the 22-pound or 10-kilogram crustacean, is now on the market at the asking price of $1,000.
"So far, there's one guy who is interested," Big Fish fish shop owner, and now Big Dee-Dee's owner, Denis Breau said yesterday.
"But I won't sell him now, not even for $5,000, not until early August."
Big Dee-Dee is proving such an attraction that Breau plans to keep the estimated century-old lobster around for at least the rest of July.
Dee-Dee is doing well, Breau said. Sickly lobsters become obvious shortly after arriving at fish shops but healthy lobsters can live quite well for many weeks in a lobster tank, Breau explained. The big guy seems quite hardy indeed.
"He's comfortable. He's just relaxing."
A lobster fisherman in the Bay of Fundy recently hauled up the lobster in, or attached to the outside of, one of his traps -- there is some question about exactly how he came to be landed. But there's no question Big Dee-Dee is one of the largest lobsters ever seen in these parts, despite the fact the cold waters of the bay are renown for producing big lobsters.
Just not quite that big.
Since Breau acquired the lobster, tourists, locals and the media have beaten a path to his door to see the gargantuan crustacean, whose dominant claw is far bigger than a size 10 boot and whose smaller claw dwarfs an entire market-size (large) lobster. He's living in a lobster tank with just a few smaller lobsters, to give him more room to himself, and is getting along with his few roommates.
The lobster is believed to be about 100 years old, though there is no way to tell for sure except through a post-mortem examination. That won't happen soon, Breau said, because so many people are enjoying their visits with Big Dee-Dee that he won't let him come to harm.
At least not just yet.
Big Fish fish shop is located on the south side of Shediac's Main Street, near the downtown NB Liquor store.
