Bronze Markers and Plaques

A couple of years ago a good friend of mine passed away and he was memorialized by the Golf Course that he worked by a beautiful bronze marker that was placed near a tree that was planted in his honor. The marker had a picture of him on it and was such a nice thoughtful way to remember him.

Valley Monuments is a 100 year old foundry that now has a website,, where you can buy all kinds of Bronze Markers and Plaques. This family owned company offers guaranteed foundry-direct pricing and "Old World"-style craftsmanship of their bronze memorial, recognition, dedication, garden, commemorative and award plaques and bronze grave markers.

For something as important as a memorial marker, you need to rely on a company that has proven experience because bronze is one of the world's most durable and timeless metals and will be seen for hundreds of years by future generations.

Fannie Mae Chocolates are Made In the USA

I received a box of Fannie Mae chocolates the other day from a guest who lives in Michigan City, Indiana. I had never had Fannie Mae chocolates before, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out how yummy they are. Not only are they yummy, but they are made in the USA and have been for the last 89 years. The first Fannie May retail store was opened by H. Teller Archibald in 1920 at 11 N. LaSalle St. in Chicago. By 1935, there were nearly four dozen retail stores in Illinois and several neighboring states.

In May of 2006 Fannie May joined the family of brands. For more than 30 years, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM Inc. – “Your Florist of Choice®” – has been providing customers around the world with the freshest flowers and finest selection of plants, gift baskets, gourmet foods, confections and plush stuffed animals perfect for every occasion.

Check the labels

Received this from a friend - I like this idea!

This past weekend I was at Kroger. I needed 60 W light bulbs and Bounce dryer sheets. I was in the light bulb aisle and right next to the GE brand I normally buy was an off brand labeled "Everyday Value." I picked up both types of bulbs and compared the stats - they were the same except for the price. The GE bulbs were more money than the Everyday Value brand but the thing that surprised me the most was the fact that GE was made in MEXICO and the Everyday Value brand was made in - get ready for this - the USA .

So throw out the myth that you cannot find products you use every day that are made right here - from a company in Cleveland OH !

So on to another aisle - Bounce Dryer Sheets....yep you guessed it Bounce was more money and made in Canada, the Everyday Value brand was less money and MADE IN THE USA! I did laundry yesterday and the dryer sheets performed just like the Bounce Free I have been using for years and at almost half the price!

So my challenge to you is to start reading the labels when you shop for everyday things and see what you can find that is made in the USA - the job you save may be your own or your neighbors!

If you accept the challenge, pass this on to others in your address book so we can all start buying American, one light bulb at a time!

Besides, you might save a little green in the process.

Stop buying from China ..........

We should have awakened a decade ago......

lets get with the program.... help our fellow Americans keep their jobs ... and create more jobs here in the U.S.A.
