Last Sunday Brunch of 2008, Lots of Deadliest Catch news, and by popular request Junior!!!

With How our little group has Grown I have had to take over the ENTIRE bottom section of the Chart Room so we can all get those coveted Window Seats!
And What a View we have today!! It is so Crisp and cool you can see almost forever!. Contrast these photos with what I posted yesterday!! Nordlys, I figured with your location this would be the first spot you would hit on any Sunday Brunch..... (Yes Frieda, Mystic, Sunshiner, Helen, Bonnie, and Ang the Bloody Mary bar is in it's usual spot down in Cape Cheerful. Bunny C Away from the desserts!! Suzisippi I see You, Put DOWN THE CHOCOLATE CAKE!)
At Least get some eggs ....
....Or a Waffle before you start consuming Mass quanities of alcohol.
Hey, The Orange Glazed Pork Chops are Nummy!!!!
And Now, By popular request, (And in once Case a Threat) Here is a Shot of Junor at the Carving station. Remember to tip him, he is saving for school!!!

NOW you can go to the dessert table. You may notice that another of my pineapple Upside down cakes and one of my chocolate cakes is also making an apperance. Kim, You are not allowed to eat ALL of the cheesecakes today!!! Remember last Sunday? No? Really? That would have been the SUGAR COMA!!!
Now, Does everyone have their plates and drinks all set up? (Like I even need to Ask when it comes to the Northwestern and Cornelia Marie Ladies). Lets Talk Deadliest Catch!!!
Up in the Conference rooms the Gear is all stitting, just waiting for Opies!!
Did you know that they recycle ALL of the Batteries they use on the boats? You should see the bags and bags they ship out of here!!
You can see the one picture target on the wall that almost every camera for the entire show is set by!! Before they went home for the Holidays they even got the outline up for the story board for the first week of shooting starting on Jan. 4th

Time Bandit:These Shots are of the New Improved Time Bandit from back in October. They did a huge overall of the boat in the off-season, giving them more speed, more cargo hold. rebuilds of the crane and launcher, and *Spoiler Alert* they added a HOT TUB to the deck!!!

Cornelia Marie: I think it is an "Open Secret" That Captain Phil did NOT captain the boat for Red King Crab. We all hope, and the plan still is, that he will be back for Opies. I Have a Suite at the Grand Aleutan just waiting for you Phil!! (Hopefully security can keep the ladies away) Dave Milman is off the Boat and a new Deckhand Corey is in. And Plan to see more of Freddy and his wife on this blog as they live in Dutch, and they are both AWESOME people.

Northwestern: The NW was drydocked for most of the offseason for a $750,000.00 overhaul. There is some tension brewing between the Hansen Clan and the non-Hansens on the boat. And *SPOILER ALERT* there is an interview out there that Mat thad a "Slip" In his recovery from addiction issues over the summer before king Crab season Began. Personally I hope that this slip is his last and know that he is strong enough to oversome this. Also There is talk of Matt and Jake leaving the NW for other fisheries. Nice to see the two of them getting along so well this year after last year's "Trouble" (Note to all I have edited this post to clear up some unintentionally vague language that some people thought implied that Matt's "Slip Up" was more recent. I apologize to any Northwestern Fans that took it that way, and will make sure I am more precise in the future)

The Wizard: Keith put over $400,000.00 into the boat in the offseason to fix the damage we all saw last season. Still it is one of the toughest boats out there, and they got their quota in early which proves them as one of the best boats in the fleet. The new green horns Cooper and Lynn did not make it for King Season this year but hopefully they will be back in opies. In the meantime a new Greenhorn for the Wizard is Josh Warner. *Spoiler Alert* Did everyone know that sweet Lenny Does not like Cameramen?

I hope you all enjoyed the last Sunday Brunch of 2008!! Just a few more days and Pollock "A" Season begins and then Opilio Crab.

See you all next week!!!

And To all of you coming here from the Discovery Channel Links WELCOME!! I do the Brunch for everyone on Sunday's but I post almost every day, and you never know when some new Deadliest Catch news will end up on here, So check back often!!

All of your hints only make me look forward to the new season more than ever! Delicious brunch - and love the Bloody Marys. Mimosas anyone? Happy New Year!

gbbarb said...

Nebraska, I will join you for the mimosas are they are much better than the bloody mary's.

Thanks carlisleboy for all of the info especially the CM stuff. Can't wait for the opie spoilers!!

sunshiner said...

Ah, CB, I needed those Bloody Marys. Mmm, they were just the ticket. I nibbled on the pork chops which were delicious, but Bloody Marys kept calling my name.
As for the pix, Time bandit looks AWESOME! Wow! Bey the NW doesn't get as much bang for their buck. I am fond of Voka and 7up but I am wondering what Vodka and Mountain Dew tastes like?

Carlisleboy said...

I am A Mountain Dew Purist. The Only thing that should be put with the "Dew" is Water ice. Preferibly Spring water, or Fiji Brand. At the very least the ice cubes must be made with filtered water.
A Mountain Dew Slushie is Ok too, but really, I just love it cold from the can or the tap. It really is one of God's Little Miracles!!!

Kathy said...

Thanks for all the DC insider info, CB. Like everyone else here, it just whets my appetite for more and the start of the season on Discovery in April. I'm looking forward to seeing/reading more as Opies season starts. Thanks!

BunnyC said...

Thank you CB for all the DC info and as always the wonderful brunch! You always treat us well! The food and the company are always great. I wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year!

Ang said...

Love the brunch. Might need that bloody mary for opening show in April with all those hints. I'll miss Dave on CM. I hope Matt didn't have a relapse but if so I hope he's back on the right track. As long as all 3 Hansens are on the boat I'm happy (even though I like them all - Nick makes me laugh). Look forward to more info on the Wizard as well. Tell Jr. thanks for the food. And you're desserts look awesome.

Leigh said...

The mimosas were good. I'm not a bloody mary fan myself. Of course I hit the desert table. I'm weak when it comes to cheesecake.

hot tub on the Time Bandit? Gotta love how the Hillstrand boys pamper their crew and themselves.

Keep the news coming. I hope everyone has a great new year!!

Lori said...

Hey CB - you have got to be kidding - I still have my mouth hanging open - love the spoilers but I am truly in shock (well, not really). I love the whole crew of the NW (like you didn't already know that) and would hate to see any of them go......Matt and Edgar have been friends for many years and Jake is far too cute! I too, truly hope that Matt did not fall off the wagon, but if he did, I hope he gets the support he needs to be strong again. Oh, the brunch - well, I drooled over the salmon locks - yum! I will only eat salmon from the Pacific coast - Atlantic is aweful! And pour a mimosa for me too! Have a wonderful New Year and take some pics of the fireworks. I remember Steve's from last year and they were awesome!

Elizabeth Douglas said...

Salmon, mimosas, waffle bar, and spoilers...you're too good to us! I do love that window seat.

Margrita said...

Loved the brunch the Bloody Marys were great, thanks for all the spoilers and the great pictures of the TB. I hope that if Matt did slip he is back on track now. Kudos, Kudos to you and junior for a great brunch.

Anonymous said...

Junior is so Cute!!!
Does he have a girlfriend?
All all the boys in Alaska that cute?
Nina from Greece

Janice said...

Couldn't leave the comments at 13!!! Brunch again was wonderful- the lox looked incredible and uh oh- looks like we got a hater who won't identify theirself. The price of celebrity... Not to worry CB- we support you and enjoy your pics and posts. PS- never occurred to me to use green AND red cherries on a pineapple upside down cake. Quite clever for the holidays.

Carlisleboy said...

No Problem Janice. I took care of the Hater. And I am sorry that the info on the NW is like it is. If Matt slipped it just shows he is human, and that recovery is a lifelong process. Do you know how hard it is for me to give up Cigarettes? I believe in Free speech for all and all that but I will not stand for some couch jocky in the lower 48 telling me I have my info wrong when I saw and spoke to two people on the Northwestern on Nov 15 when they were in town. I kept this info in confidence until I saw it written about on another board and decided to post it here. Personally I find Matt an Inspiration and wish him the best of luck.

Carlisleboy said...

And Janice you can arrange the cherries in different arrangments for different holidays, like a heart for Valentines Day or a Shamrock for St Patrick's.

Dani said...

oh thats alot of deadliest catch information...its like a christmas present lol!! all this talk of alcohol. im only 17 so of course i dont drink yet haha but i will be 18 in under 2 weeks which means i will be legal in the uk and can join in :)

Kim said...

Its really a shame about Matt. But hes human! Thanks for all the insider info. Im emailing you a special request. Brunch was incredible. I dont eat cheesecake though. I love me some brownies though.

Carlisleboy said...

Dani, It is Dutch Harbor. Described as "A Small Drinkng Village with a HUGE Fishing Problem".
So, Just to Boost Junior's Spirits do you girls in the UK Find Him Cute as Well?

Gigi said...

Don't be fooled--the drinking reputation is hugely overstated...there are many of us who live regular lives and don't get all caught up in that PR thing. :)

And Junior does have a girlfriend unless something happened since I left town. But I am sure he will be greatly flattered to know that he's getting some love. :)

Dani said...

That is a good description of Dutch harbor!! An yea I gotta say jr is cute!!!

Carlisleboy said...

Hey Gigi
Saw on the map someone in Sedona and Figured it was you. Hey boys like to be appreciated as much as girls!!! And If it gets him more tips to pay for school, increases my blog hits among girls age 13-21, and he does not mind, Why Not?

Carlisleboy said...

And Dani, you had better be on holiday or you are going to be tired at school tomorrow!!! It is like what 2 am there now?
Nice to know the European Ladies like Junior!!! I'll pass it along!!

Dani said...

It's 1:20am here but no worries off school for christmas and new year so still got the rest of the week off!!

Carlisleboy said...

Ok, Good.
Did they have a Doctor Who Christmas Special this year?

Dani said...

Yep there was a dr who Christmas special but I didn't get watching it as I wasn't at home so I couldn't tell you anythin about it! A few people have been sayin it was good though.

Gigi said...

Yeah, just sending you a little liberal shout out from Sedona. Oh, I see how you are, using poor unsuspecting Junior to increase your blog hits. haha

Carlisleboy said...

Hey, I am up to 40 Followers Now. I may do a Junior montage next week!! LOL
