Poll Question of the Day:
ARE COWICHAN SWEATERS COOL?
Yes or no? Do you wear one? Would you wear one? Do you want one? Have you, like I have, noticed more and more of them on Canadian city streets? What's your favourite design? Is it even called "cowichan" where you live?
Let us know by posting on our blog or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll discuss your comments throughout the show.
Also, applause and kudos continue to pour in for our Searchlight winner, the Phog Lounge, so we'll say it again! Congratulations!
