Made It!

That’s right those who know what I am referring to. My Wine Tags found here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/63068258/set-of-2-wine-tags-recyled-vintage made it to Etsy’s Homepage last night. Did you see it?? It was live from 10 pm to 11 pm. Well I am betting it will happen again. So keep your eyes pealed. I did capture the moment. See below…

Buy Made in America / USA

AUGUST 1st to Sept. 1st

Well over 50 yrs ago I knew a lady who would not buy Christmas gifts if they were made in China. Her daughter will recognize her in the following.

Did y'all see Diane Sawyer's special report? They removed ALL items from a typical, middle class family's home that were not made in the USA .

There was hardly anything left besides the kitchen sink. Literally. During the special they showed truckloads of items - USA made - being brought in to replace everything and talked about how to find these items and the difference in price etc..

It was interesting that Diane said if every American spent just $64 more than normal on USA made items this year, it would create something like
200,000 new jobs!




Are we Americans as dumb as we appear --- or --- is it that we just do not think? The Chinese, knowingly and intentionally, export inferior and even toxic products and dangerous toys and goods to be sold in American markets.

70% of Americans,.. believe that the

trading privileges afforded to the Chinese

should be suspended.

Why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges? You Can..DO IT YOURSELF,AMERICA !!

Simply look on the bottom of every product you buy, and if it says 'Made in China ' or 'PRC'(and that now includes Hong Kong), simply choose another product, or none at all. You will be amazed at how dependent you are on Chinese products, and you will be equally amazed atwhat you can do without.

Who needs plastic eggs to celebrate Easter? If you must have eggs, use real ones and benefit some American farmer. Easter is just an example. The point is do not wait for the government to act. Just go ahead and assume control on your own.

THINK ABOUT THIS: If 200 million Americans each refuse to buy just $20 of Chinese goods, that's a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favor...fast!!

Most of the people who have been reading about this matter are planning onimplementing this on Aug. 1st and continue it until Sept. 1st. That is only one month of trading losses, but it will hit the Chinese for 1/12th of the total, or 8%, of their American exports. Then they might have to ask themselves if the benefits of their arrogance and lawlessness were worth it.

Remember, August 1st to Sept. 1st !START NOW.

Send this to everybody you know. Let's show them that we are Americans and NOBODY can take us for granted.

If we can't live without cheap Chinese goods for one month out of our lives,WE DESERVE WHAT WE GET!

Pass it on, America ...

Well, come to think of it, instead of doing it for just 1 month why not try to do it all the time.

Real Wedding: Jo & Ryan

“My wedding jewelry was so amazing,” states Jo, “I had so many people compliment me on them throughout the day.” Groom: Ryan Osika Bride: Jo Cosio Osika Wedding Date: December 30, 2011 Venue: Castle Green, Pasadena CA Photographer: Lin & Jirsa Photography You can see more photos at: www.flickr.com/photos/ryanosika/sets/72157629033318353/show/ Their story: Ryan and I met in June of 2010 had a horrible first date but had moved in together and become engaged by September of that same year! I thought he was boring and he thought I talked too much. Now I tell all my friends they have to go on a second date! Ryan and I are very different. He's the kind to color outside the box, while I stay meticulously inside the lines. But as different as we are our core values are what matters and brought us together. When his head is in the clouds sometimes I go there with him (and it's amazing!) and sometimes I bring him back to earth. Sometimes it’s hard to know which one to do but we make it work!
