Today as I was cleaning up the house and putting things away after the crazy Christmas festivies....I started looking at the gifts we had received just to see where they were made. I was shocked The new Weber grill cover made in Taiwan, my new towels from JC Penney's made in Mexico, the Polinex shower head from China, my perfume and new "Sears" vaccum from the UK, my new flannel sheets are from Turkey and even the chocolate dipping sauce for my strawberries was from Canda!! :grit: The only things I found from the U.S.A. were DH's new Carhartt coveralls, hat, and gloves.....and the chocolate chip cookies from my kitchen!! :happy: It's no wonder times are so bad for some families....no mills or manufacturing businesses have survived this terrible economy. We don't make anything anymore and the farmers are turning their land into subdivisions. Who will feed this country when the older generation of farmers is gone?
