Canon News for Nov 2009

Happy Thanksgiving USA!

I have a lot to be thankful for, but I especially want to express my thanks to you for making this site possible. Without you, this site would not exist - It's really as simple as that.

As you do your holiday shopping online this year, please keep this site in mind. My inbox has been filling up with Black Friday deals (some will only show up Friday morning) from the retailers included on the site. I can't keep up with all of them, so, it is probably easiest to just send you to the Support This Site page. Most of the retailers listed have a Black Friday deal page(s) that will list all of their bargains. Start at the first and go through all of them. And experience no traffic or parking hassles. :)
