GREAT WAY TO "BUY USA & CANADA” AND NOT FROM CHINA!                                                

With all the food and pet products that are now coming from China, you may want to make sure you read
labels at the grocery store and especially Walmart when buying food products. Many products no longer show
where they were made, only give where the distributor is located. It is important to read the bar code to
track it's origin.

How to read Bar Codes ... interesting! This may be useful to know when grocery shopping, if it's a concern to
you. A lot of people in the whole world are afraid of China-made "black hearted goods". Can you differentiate
which one is made in Taiwan or China?
If the first 3 digits of the barcode are 690, 691 or 692, the product is MADE IN CHINA. 471 is Made in Taiwan.
This is our right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the public, therefore,
we have to RESCUE ourselves.

Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products "MADE IN CHINA", so they
don't show from which country it is made. However, you may now refer to the barcode, remember if the first 3 digits are:
690-692 .. MADE IN CHINA.
00 - 09 ... USA & CANADA
30 - 37 ... FRANCE
40 - 44.... GERMANY

BUY USA & CANADIAN MADE by watching for "0" at the beginning of the number. We need every boost we an get!




It Happened in Naubinway


What if you got a call like this? Hello, boss I cannot come in to work today. There was a moose born on my front lawn and the mom won't let me out of the house!


Naubinway, Michigan is about 40 miles west of the Mackinaw bridge in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The photos show a baby moose just 12 Hours Old - Born in the middle of downtown Naubinway, Michigan.

Comments: In my 33 years in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, I have never seen a new-born baby moose. This one was not even a half mile from our house. The mother picked a small, quiet neighborhood, and had her baby in a front yard just off of US 2, at 5:30 am. Allen and I were out bike riding when we came upon the pair. The lady across the street from this house told us she saw it being born. We saw them at 5:30 PM. So the little one was 12 hours old. What an awesome place we live in to see such a sight. Makes it really tough to use your front door! Reported by the St. Ignace News
