A Little Bit of Humor...
On the last day of kindergarten, all the children brought presents for
their teacher. The florist's son handed the teacher a gift. She shook it, held it up and said,
"I bet I know what it is - it's some flowers!"
"That's right!" shouted the little boy.
Then the candy store owner's daughter handed the teacher a gift. She held it up, shook
it and said. "I bet I know what it is - it's a box of candy!"
"That's right!" shouted the little girl.
The next gift was from the liquor store owner's son, Little Johnny. The teacher held it
up and saw that it was leaking. She touched a drop with her finger and tasted it. "Is it wine?"
"No," Little Johnny answered.
The teacher touched another drop to her tongue. "Is it champagne?" she asked.
"No," he answered.
Finally, the teacher said, "I give up. What is it?"
Little Johnny replied, "A puppy!"

Lowes the other day, and just for the heck of it I was looking at the hose attachments. They
were all made in China. The next day I was in Ace Hardware, and just for the heck of it I

In our current
economic situation, every little thing we buy, or do, affects someone else - maybe even their
job. My grandson likes Hershey's candy. I just noticed that it is marked 'made in Mexico' now.
I choose not to buy it any more.
My favorite toothpaste, Colgate, is also 'made in
Mexico' now. I've switched to Crest. You have to read the labels on
This past weekend
I was at Kroger. (Can be true for any store.) I needed 60W 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 (you got it) the USA', in a company in Cleveland,

On I went to another
aisle. Those Bounce Dryer Sheets I needed - yep, you guessed it! Bounce cost more money -
and - it's made in Canada. The Everyday Value brand was less money - and - 'MADE IN THE
USA'! Bye-bye Bounce! I did laundry yesterday, and the dryer sheets performed just like the
Bounce Free I've been using for years - and at almost half the
