One Light Bulb at a Time

One Light Bulb at a TimeA physics teacher in high school, once told the students that while onegrasshopper on the railroad tracks wouldn't slow a train very much, abillion of them would. With that thought in mind, read the following,obviously written by a good American ..Good idea .. . one light bulb at a time . . . .Check this out . I can verify this because I was in Lowes the otherday for some reason and just for the heck of it I was looking at thehose attachments . They were all made in China . The next day I was inAce Hardware and just for the heck of it I checked the hoseattachments there. They were made in USA . Start looking ..In our current economic situation, every little thing we buy or doaffects someone else - even their job . So, after reading this email, Ithink this lady is on the right track . Let's get behind her!My grandson likes Hershey's candy . I noticed, though, that it ismarked made in Mexico now.. I do not buy it any more.My favorite toothpaste Colgate is made in Mexico ... now I haveswitched to Crest. You have to read the labels on everything ..This past weekend I was at Kroger. I needed 60 W light bulbs andBounce dryer sheets . I was in the light bulb aisle, and right next tothe 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 moremoney than the Everyday Value brand but the thing that surprised me themost was the fact that GE was made in MEXICO and the Everyday Valuebrand was made in - get ready for this - the USA ina company in Cleveland , Ohio .So throw out the myth that you cannot find products you use every daythat are made right here ..So on to another aisle - Bounce Dryer Sheets . .. . yep, you guessedit, bounce cost more money and is made in Canada . The Everyday Valuebrand was less money and MADE IN THE USA ! I did laundry yesterday andthe dryer sheets performed just like the Bounce Free I have been usingfor years and at almost half the price!My challenge to you is to start reading the labels when you shop foreveryday things and see what you can find that is made in the USA - thejob you save may be your own or your neighbors!If you accept the challenge, pass this on to others in your addressbook so we can all start buying American, one light bulb at a time!Stop buying from overseas companies!(We should have awakened a decade ago .. . .. . . . )Let's get with the program . . . .. help our fellow Americans keeptheir jobs and create more jobs here in the U . S . A ..
